Aardman Wiki

Feathers McGraw is a villain existing in the Wallace and Gromit franchise of Aardman Animations.


Physical Appearance[]

He is known as a robber and wears a red rubber glove to fool the authorities making them think he is a chicken rather than a penguin.



The Wrong Trousers[]

In his debut, he rented Gromit's room out at Wallace's house. He then stole Gromit's room, thus, Gromit left. But McGraw had a idea: a diamond heist. He reconstructed the Techno Trousers so it responds to a remote control. After getting the diamond from the museum, he revealed to Wallace that he was the penguin re-enter, and proceeded to trap Wallace inside a wardrobe. After Gromit got to the scene, but McGraw changed his mind and pulled out a pistol and told Gromit to get into the wardrobe. Soon after, McGraw attempted to make an escape on one of Wallace's model trains, but Gromit switched the points, causing McGraw to go the wrong way. After a chase, Feathers and Gromit both crashed resulting in McGraw's capture. He was then captured and handed to the zoo.

A Close Shave[]

When Gromit was sent to prison, on the cell wall, it said "Feathers was 'ere". Also in the cell, Gromit was reading a book which on the spine read, "A Penguin Classic" with a picture of Feathers without the glove. During the chase scene, when Gromit plunges down the cliff, a rock that resembles Feathers can be seen.

Cracking Contraptions[]

In one of them, Wallace turned on the TV to a show called, "When Penguins Turn", clearly referencing Feathers.
