--> '''Paneer:''' [Constable] Dibbins is the sort who can make things happen for me. Wallace is more the sort who makes 'em happen TO me.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Early on in Episode 1, Major Crum is raving on about an impending aerial attack. Of course it's just TheMunchausen being TheMunchausen... too bad he's more right than he knows.


* ContinuityNod: At least one item from a previous short is hidden in every episode. For example, in episode 1, [[WesternAnimation/WallaceAndGromitAGrandDayOut the hatch from Wallace's rocket ship]] can be found in the cellar.

* MisterMuffykins: Poodgie-Woo and Tinkie-Wee, two Cavalier King Charles Spaniel-lookalikes owned by Wallace's snobbish, histrionic neighbor Miss Flitt. These yappers behave when their owner is around; otherwise they are vicious and inconsolable.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Wallace's attempt to pump up some honeybees with Muscle-Gro to make them super-efficient honey-producers, which wound up ''making giant bees that rampaged all over town''.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Wallace's attempt to pump up some honeybees flowers with Muscle-Gro to make them super-efficient honey-producers, which grow more quickly also made them grow much larger. This in itself wasn't too bad, but it also wound up ''making giant bees that rampaged all over town''.


** It's telling that Mr. Gabberly's dialogue portrait ''is literally a window''.

* UnconventionalSmoothie: In "Fright of the Bumblebees", Wallace makes plant growth formula by mixing a battery, a military ration bar, and a teabag in his blender.

* IdenticalGrandson: The Prickly Thicket Country Club has portraits of people involved in the founding of the club centuries before: Rory [=McBiscuit=], the Duchess Flitt, Goodman Witlace and Gimlet. They look remarkably similar to Duncan [=McBiscuit=], Felicity Flitt, Wallace and Gromit, respectively. (Although Rory is explicitly Duncan's ancestor, the heritage of the others is unknown.)

* AccidentalProposal: In episode 3, Wallace accidentally proposes to Miss Flitt while picking up a lugnut that she mistakes for a wedding ring. Sorting this out takes up a good part of the plot of episode 4.

* BizarreAndImprobableGolfGame: "The Bogey Man" involves a golf game occurring ''through the middle of town'' because ''it was built on top of the Golf Course''. Out of both mercy and arrogance, Wallace's opponent changes the rules after the sixteenth hole so that that whoever is first to finish the last two holes in either order is the winner. Play goes through the sewers, through buildings, and at one point involves a squirrel. Success even involves [[spoiler:using a legendary grip which sends the ball straight up and mailing the ball across town, respectively]].

* DeepFriedWhatever: "Muzzled!" features a deep-frying machine. Sadly, Gromit won't put anything in there that won't contribute to solving a puzzle.

''Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures'' is a series of adventure games featuring WesternAnimation/WallaceAndGromit. The games were created by Creator/TelltaleGames and released in the spring/summer of 2009 for the PC and Xbox Live Arcade. The games are notable for successfully replicating the look and feel of the films, to the point of having fingerprints and other clay modeling details visible on the characters.

Added DiffLines:

* YouCantGetYeFlask: Gromit is unable to tell you why your puzzle solutions won't work. Wallace isn't much better, especially in the last episode.
** Which makes for a sense of irony- [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner the trope namer]] ''also'' [[VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople had a video game from Telltale]].


* CoolOldLady: With her kind disposition, witty tongue, and clever mind, Mrs. Gabberly fits the bill, especially when she manages to outdo Major Crum in the pie-eating contest.



* FauxAffablyEvil: Monty Muzzle. In his first scene, he seems kind but has an off-putting air due to some of his words. This facade instantly crumbles though when you interact with him as Gromit at his funfair.



* InnocentlyInsensitive: Major Crum is prone to being this, given his old age and (former) status as a military man. While his intentions are pure gold, his executions come off as more copper than anything else, often holding up progress or being brash towards others with the justification being his "major" status.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Miss Felicity Flitt, despite sometimes being a diva and unnecessarily rude to our heroes, isn't a bad person by any means. A lot of the time she shows her best in the worst of times.
** P.C. Dibbins is this in spades! Although his by-the-book way of operating can cause some headaches, he naturally is a morally sound officer of the law and simply wants the best for his town.
** Duncan is a bit of a downplayed example. While he does rescue Wallace in ''The Last Resort'', he still maintains a gruff persona that continues through the rest of the series.



* MrViceGuy: Mr. Paneer, despite sometimes being a bit touchy (given his status as ButtMonkey, we can't blame him), is genuinely a pleasant person, often greeting Wallace & Gromit politely and helping them when he can.
