Shaun the Sheep (2007)

Shaun the Sheep is a British show from Aardman Animations ('Wallace & Gromit') about a Sheep named Shaun. The character of Shawn the Sheep made his TV debut on Christmas Eve 1996 in Nick Park's Academy Award-winning short film A Close Shave where one of Wallace's contraptions sheared off all of Shaun's wool. Shaun later appeared in the 2002 series Cracking Contraptions episode, Shopper 13, ostensibly to rescue a wayward wheel of cheese.
The spin off series, Shaun the Sheep, consist of fourty episodes, each seven minutes long.

In this series, Shaun has many adventures with his barnyard compatriots and the rest of his flock. He is a sheep who doesn't follow the flock. The series is hilarious, adorable and far too good for the children it is clearly aimed at. Inquisitive, imaginative and mischievous, Shawn's independent nature can lead him into tricky situations. He is still young and quite naïve and his curiosity and inexperience can prove a recipe for trouble.
Every episode is a combination of slapstick and classic silent comedy in Aardman’s recognisable animation style. There is no spoken dialogue, even by human characters. In this way the series is reminiscent of early silent comedy films.
You can buy Shaun the Sheep - The Box Set and Shaun The Sheep - Saturday Night Shaun.
