Packaging / Design

Ahh, this is one sweet tin for a really sweet price! But nevermind that (I'm not here to rate prices!) and lets move on to what's so good about the price... eh, I mean Tin! What's so good about the TIN! Allright?

First of I want to make it clear that this nicely sized set only includes ONE keepcase dvd (!), and this is the regular re-released edition of Three Cracking Adventures (R2UK). This keepcase fits into a simple plastic mold that will hold the case in place and keep it from rattling around that big empty box when you move it around. Not your most common addition but a really good call for this kind of release.

Now, the size of the case will allow you to put in an additional 4 keepcases next to the one allready included, making this set a potential 5-in-1 treasure chest that you can compose all by yourself (for say Wallace and Gromit - Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun The Sheep and possibly even the Creature Comforts series). It's all up to you on this one!

The tin box looks a bit poor when you first unwrap it with a bunch of rating-markers and a big yellow stamp-like thing on the front. BUT, fear not, for almost all of these rating-markers and the thing on the front are actually very easy-to-remove stickers, making this a very clean looking set once the pealing's done. (Please note: The stickers mentioned have allready been removed on the photos! - Except for the Universal-sticker on the back of the tin).

Furthermore, the front cover (as well as the logos) have been heavily embossed to create a really high quality feel that makes Wallace and Gromit just jump right of the cover. And finally, apart from the keepcase you'll also find a set of art cards with this release, featuring a few scenes from Shaun The Sheep and one from Wallace & Gromit.


Disc contents / Extras

The disc contents for Three Cracking Adventures come off as kind of weak but there still quite interesting. we get a little bit of everything as well as 3 audio commentaries (one for each film). To sum it up I guess it's pretty much all you'd expext from a disc like this. I mean, these three shorts we're the first Wallace & Gromit films made and though they're absolutely brilliant I'm not surprised that they recieve a bit less of a spotlight than the more big-budget follow up; The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.


Sidenotes

Be aware that there's been some musical edits done to this edition (and most other editions as well). In the Wrong Trousers scene with Gromit's birthday card, the tune that plays from the card is NOT the original "Happy Birthday To You!" tune. Sadly, it's been replaced by "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" and when the Penguin later listens to the radio, the radio plays a different tune, rather than the original "How Much is that Doggy in the Window?".
