DVD Review & Giveaway: Wallace & Gromit



To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Wallace & Gromit, they have released 3 shows on DVD. Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out, Wallace & Gromit: A Close Shave, and Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers are now each available on their own DVD.
In Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out Wallace discovers he has run out of cheese in the house. Does he go to the store to get more? Oh no, not with this crazy duo. The moon, of course, is made of cheese, so they decide to take a "cheesy" vacation to the moon. With Gromit's help, Wallace builds a spaceship that will deliver them to the moon.
I found this DVD to be the most hilarious. The idea is just so ridiculous that I couldn't help but love it. Why wouldn't you just build a spaceship in your own yard? And then all the crazy things that happen to them once they get to the moon, which is indeed made of cheese in their world, are just a funny.
The DVD Wallace & Gromt: A Close Shave shows us what kind of trouble Wallace & Gromit can get into. It's all about knitting and wool and sheep-rustling. Gromit even finds himself in jail. What more adventure could you ask for?
And Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers has another funny plot. The electronic, almost robotic, pants that Wallace made come back to haunt him. While he's sleeping an evil penguin uses him and the trousers to steal a diamond. How does he ever get out of this one?
These DVDs are available in stores, and they are all online too. I have 2 copies of each of these DVDs to give away! So there will be 6 winners!
To win a copy of one of the Wallace & Gromit DVDs, leave a comment here. Be sure to include your e-mail address, if I don't already have it. And if you need something to comment about, tell me what your favorite "Sunday" comic is. (Mine is Garfield. I've loved him since I was young, and I think he's still my favorite.)
For a second entry, post a link to this contest on your blog. Then come back here and leave another comment with the link.
The contest starts now and will end 12:00 noon on Saturday, March 7th. I will post winners here and will e-mail you as well.
Good luck and please come back again for more reviews and giveaways.

Yay! I LOVE Wallace and Grommit!

I don't get the paper anymore--I don't even know what is still there. But I loved Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, and Garfield (the "unofficial" mascot of my alma mater).
