A Matter of Loaf and Death is a 2008 British stop-motion animated film created by Nick Park, and the fourth of his shorts to star his characters Wallace and Gromit. It is the first Wallace and Gromit short since A Close Shave in 1995.

A Matter of Loaf and Death is a murder mystery, with Wallace and Gromit starting a new bakery business. With an unknown assailant murdering bakers, Gromit tries to solve the case before Wallace ends up a victim himself. It was the last Wallace and Gromit film before the retirement of Wallace's voice actor Peter Sallis in 2010.

Directed by Nick Park. Written by Nick Park and Bob Baker.


[Wallace and Gromit are in the baker's van]
Wallace: Ah, lovely cuppa, Gromit. But, hmmm, a slightly dieselie aftertaste, perhaps? How's that breakfast coming on?
[Gromit presses a button on the car radio and a slice of cremated toast pops out from the cassette slot]
Wallace: Well done, lad. [looks at the burnt toast] Very well done. Thanks, chuck.

Wallace: But, Piella, you're the Bake-O-Lite girl!
Piella Bakewell: Was the Bake-O-Lite girl. I ate too much, you see.
Wallace: Oh, really?
Piella Bakewell: I couldn't ride the balloon anymore.
Wallace: Oh dear.
Piella Bakewell: So they dropped me!
Wallace: What a blow. Ooh!
Piella Bakewell: ME! And curse on bakers and their loathsome confections!

[after Piella gets eaten alive by the crocodile off-screen]
Wallace: Farewell, my angel cake. You'll always be my Bake-O-Lite Girl.
