A Grand Day Out

A Grand Day Out

A Grand Day Out with Wallace and Gromit, later marketed as A Grand Day Out, is a 1989 British stop-motion animated short film starring Wallace and Gromit. It was directed, co-written, and animated by Nick Park at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield and Aardman Animations in Bristol.


Cheese-loving inventor Wallace (Peter Sallis) and his dog Gromit run out of cheese. As "everybody knows the moon is made of cheese", they build a rocket and fly to the Moon. They encounter a coin-operated robot. Wallace inserts a coin, but nothing happens. After he and Gromit leave, the robot comes to life and gathers the dirty plates left at the picnic spot.
