Shortly after their holiday season has ended, Wallace and Gromit's local town is visited by a charity fair, run by Monty Muzzle in aid of building a new dog shelter. In Wallace's house, Wallace has to deal with three stray dogs whilst he attempts to fine tune his latest invention, an Ice Cream Maker than can create any flavour of Ice Cream. The duo visit the Charity fair, and after some investigating, Gromit discovers that Monty is pocketing the townspeople's donations for himself and is in fact using the stray dogs as manual labour for the fake fair.
Wallace confronts Mr. Muzzle about the scam, who then flees the scene in a giant hot air balloon in the shape of his own head. Wallace and Gromit give chase, and eventually stop Monty, freeing the stray dogs and getting the town's money back.
As a sub-plot throughout the episode, Felicity Flitt dumps Duncan McBiscuit and becomes enamoured with Wallace's bravery in dealing with Monty Muzzle. At the end of the episode, she confuses Wallace finding a loose fastening nut as a marriage proposal, ending the game with a cliffhanger.
Muzzled follows a similar gameplay design to other Telltale adventure games such as the Tales of Monkey Island series and the Sam & Max series. Players interact with the game's world by collecting and combining items, as well as talking to other characters, to progress the story. The game also makes use of a variable hint system controlled by the player in the Options Panel - players can change the intensity and detail of the amount of hints the game gives the player when they are stuck.
Peter Sallis, the actor who lends his voice to Wallace in all of the Wallace and Gromit films, does not return as the voice of Wallace in any of the Grand Adventures games. Instead, Aardman Animation's official back up voice actor for Wallace, Ben Whitehead, voices the character instead.
