Synopsis

The Giant Vegetable Competition at Tottington Hall is coming up, and rabbits are eating people's vegetables. Enter Wallace and Gromit, who run a pest control company which captures rabbits without killing them. Wallace eventually gets the idea to brainwash all of the rabbits into not liking vegetables. He accidentally sets the switch to "Blow," causing a rabbit to stick to his head. The brainwashing experiment works, but that night a "Were-Rabbit" snatches a lot of vegetables. It is up to Wallace and Gromit to stop it.
