Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Synopsis

It's ‘vege-mania’ in Wallace and Gromit’s neighbourhood and our intrepid chums are cashing in as elite pest-control duo Anti-pesto. With only days to go before the annual Giant Vegetable Competition, business is booming!
 
But running a 'humane' pest control outfit has its drawbacks. Wallace and Gromit's home is brimful of captive bunnies and Gromit's daily task of feeding the ever-expanding population is second only to his job of feeding his master: with all their recent success, Wallace has been over-indulging in his beloved cheese and Gromit is struggling to keep him on a strict vegetable diet. True to form, Wallace resorts to technology to cure all his problems with 'the Mind-manipulation-o-matic', a simple brain-altering device.
 
All is well until an unexplained, nocturnal, veg-ravaging rabbit monster begins attacking the town's sacred vegetable plots. Soon the townsfolk are in uproar and the fate of the competition lies in the balance, until beautiful heiress and vegetable competition hostess Lady Tottington, impressed with Wallace’s humane methods, commissions Anti-pesto to apprehend the beast and save the day. Wallace's aspirations rise - this is just the sort of client he's dreamed of.
