Another day dawns at West Wallaby Street and Wallace and Gromit are up with the birds, making bread for their latest enterprise – the ‘Top Bun’ bakery. With robotic kneading arms in place (another of Wallace’s madcap inventions) and a windmill on the roof, they’ve got a very professional set-up going. But there’s just one problem – the other local bakers in the town have been ‘disappearing’ one by one…could Wallace be the next one to go?
But with his sights set on winning the affections of former ‘Bake-O-Lite’ beauty Piella Bakewell, Wallace is oblivious to any danger and gets on with romancing Piella while Gromit turns canine sleuth in a bid to ensure Wallace doesn’t become the final member of the ‘Baker’s Dozen’..
Wallace becomes ‘doughy eyed’ over the fading star of the Bake-O-Lite adverts. With her charming nature and captivating smile, Piella has grown rich from her modelling days and lives in a mansion filled to the brim with mementoes of her former glory. Wallace is putty in her hands...
Fluffles is Piella’s beautiful if slightly nervous pet poodle. Withdrawn and lacking in confidence due to many years of unkind treatment, Fluffles is nonetheless a caring soul who strikes a romantic chord with Gromit.
