Yet Wallace continues inventing in his spare time and has recently built a new device, the Knit-O-Matic, to clean and shear sheep -- which comes in quite handy when a lost lamb

The third and final of the "Wallace & Gromit" shorts is perhaps the most exciting

The third Wallace and Gromit film ... manages to top its predecessor with a series of even more impressively staged sight gags and action sequences.

A comedic gem. A short with more laughs than most full-length films.

out of all the wallace and gromit shorts this is my favorite. The action is great, the comedy, of course, is spot on, the animation as with all of the shorts is great to look at, and it has a great, dark, and gripping story.

Another great Wallace & Gromit film, the introduction of Shaun the Sheep was warmly received in my household.
