Wallace 和 Gromit的可爱形象对喜欢动画片的同学们来说也许并不陌生,以他们为主角的这一系列动画片中的第一部《月球野餐记》(A Grand Day Out) 首次播放时,就引起观众热烈反响,并获得奥斯卡金像奖的提名。再度推出的系列作品《引鹅入室》 (The Wrong Trousers)及《剃刀边缘》 (A Close Shave)两部动画片,也分别获得当年奥斯卡最佳短片大奖。而今年这一部《人兔的诅咒》也同样不负众望捧回了奥斯卡小金人。

The Story

This cartoon tells about another adventure of the cheese-loving Wallace and his faithful (5) dog Gromit. Wallace cohered (6) such a vivid (7) toy called "Wallace & Gromit" that he has ever been the champion of Aardman's Oscar Competition. This interesting attempt made them star in an all new comedy (8).
这部动画片讲述了酷爱干酪的Wallace和他忠诚的小狗Gromit的又一次奇遇。华理士粘成了一个栩栩如生的玩具,名叫Wallace & Gromit,并因此获得了一次名为Aardman's Oscar的比赛的冠军。这次有趣的尝试也让他和爱狗成为一部喜剧里的小小明星。

The village will hold the annual (9) Giant Vegetable Competition. Wallace and Gromit are running a "humane" Anti-pest Company. They're very busy at the moment because they have to catch those naughty bunnies (10) which like to eat vegetables. The action (11) of these two partners (12) is so successful that Wallace's basement (13) is full of captive bunnies.
村子里即将举行一年一度的巨型蔬菜大赛。Wallace和Gromit成立了一间“人道”反害虫公司。他们此时正忙得不可开交, 因为他们必须抓到那些喜欢吃蔬菜的调皮的兔子们。这两个无敌搭档的抓兔子行动非常成功,Wallace家的地下室挤满了被抓到的兔子。
At last, Wallace decides to use his new invention (14), a simple brain-altering device, to make the bunnies dislike (15) eating vegetables. But his test creates a mystery and huge rabbit monster. Every night, the rabbit monster goes to eat the vegetables which the villagers grow. The date of the Vegetable Competition is coming soon. Lady Tottington, the sponsor of the Vegetable Competition, decides to let Wallace and Gromit catch the rabbit monster. But Victor, Lady Tottington's suitor, prefers (16) to shoot the rabbit monster and then gets Lady Tottington's love.
最后,Wallace决定对兔子使用他新发明的洗脑装置, 让兔子们不再喜欢吃蔬菜。不过,他的试验却制造出了一只神秘而庞大的魔兔怪兽。每天晚上,这只魔兔都会去吃村民们种的蔬菜。眼看村子里的蔬菜大赛马上就要开始了,  蔬菜大赛的主办人——Tottington夫人,决定让Wallace和Gromit去抓魔兔。但Tottington夫人的求婚者——Victor却要枪击这只魔兔,从而获得Tottington夫人的芳心。
