The big question here is if the original music was restored to The Wrong Trousers. Without giving too much away, Happy Birthday and Tie a Yellow Ribbon figure very heavily into this short, but were replaced on the DreamWorks release. Has this been rectified?

 "Happy Talk" from "South Pacific" was also in the original soundtrack, one of the clever musical gags in during the segment in which the penguin's music keeps Gromit awake.

I have all four (that's right, four) DVD releases of the first three adventures:
    [*]CBS/FOX Video from 1999[*]Warner Home Video from 2001[*]Dreamworks Home Video from 2005[*]HiT Entertainment from 2007

I also have the Wal-mart exclusive (I think) Gromit's Tail-Waggin' DVD that was bundled with the DVD release of Were-Rabbit.

So.... the $64K question is:  what do I have to keep to have all the extras?  It bugs me that this blu-ray release doesn't collect all the featurettes, etc. from all previous DVD releases...



Roger Ebert--"This is one more pathetic example of the dumbing of America--to show the films in the wrong aspect ratio to placate the stupid, instead of in the right aspect ratio to reward the knowledgeable."

Regarding the music cue changes in "The Wrong Trousers," I contacted Aardman and received the following reply from Sarah Jex, Junior Development Producer:

Thanks for your enquiry.  Yes, we had to change the music after production due to a Rights issue.
So, there you have it.....
