The Soccamatic is a short film in the Cracking Contraptions series.


Wallace and Gromit head to the local football field where they get into ball throwing. Realizing how skillful Gromit is at shooting the balls, Wallace activates his Soccamatic a machine that repeatedly shoots balls at Gromit in the goal. Gromit ducks as the balls fly past. The machine runs out of balls, but Wallace re-loads new balls into the machine via an overhead part that dumps them in. Meanwhile Gromit has pulled on gloves and pilot gear. Pulling a cord, he inflates his goalkeeper vest and gloves. This completely blocks the goal, enabling the balls to bounce off. Then Wallace has an idea of tennis.
