Ever since the early 2000s, every release of The Wrong Trousers has had several musical tracks replaced with generic royalty free alternatives, due to copyright issues that were never resolved. For this project, I’ve restored the original audio to this classic short film.
The specific audio clips that have been restored are as follows:
- The birthday card now plays the “Happy Birthday” song
- The montage of Gromit trying to sleep now plays “Happy Talk” and “How Much Is That Doggy In The Window”
- The next morning, Wallace now hums “How Much Is That Doggy In The Window” as he walks by Gromit
- The small television Gromit watches as he eats his cereal now plays the Open University theme
This is a 3.96 GB MKV that is now available on MEGA. It is HD, 25 fps.
Special thanks to alloneword for the TV rip audio source, which was used for the whole short, with the logos and end credits theme sourced from DVD audio.

SONIC RACES THROUGH THE GREEN FIELDS.
THE SUN RACES THROUGH A BLUE SKY FILLED WITH WHITE CLOUDS.
THE WAYS OF HIS HEART ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUN. SONIC RUNS AND RESTS; THE SUN RISES AND SETS.
DON’T GIVE UP ON THE SUN. DON’T MAKE THE SUN LAUGH AT YOU.
