I was first introduced to Shaun the Sheep when it came onto Netflix Instant.  It looked like a cute show for my daughter, so I played it for her… and found myself watching and laughing along with her!  It’s surprisingly engaging, is pretty much hilarious the entire episode, and is something the whole family can enjoy together.  It has that same claymation look that Wallace and Grommit has (and not surprisingly is from the same creators) and actually has no dialogue but still is one of our absolute favorite shows to watch together!

Spring with excitement and jump with joy, because Shaun the Sheep is back for more wild adventures from the Oscar-winning creators of Wallace & Gromit. Fun on the farm with Shaun and his barnyard buddies springs to life, from bouncing sheep and a super-sized Timmy to bagpipe buddies and a short-sighted farmer, there’s no limit to the wild things these animals will do. So hop along with Shaun, Bitzer, Shirley, Timmy and those Naughty Pigs next door in some sheep-herding mayhem that’s sure to give you a lift!

Another thing that makes Shaun the Sheep a favorite for our family is the fact that you fall totally in love with Shaun and all of the characters in this show!  Shaun may be the star, but everyone gets their moment in the spotlight.  A couple of my favorites are Timmy and his mother (who always manages to have curlers in her hair, haha).  Oh, and there’s a herd of pigs nearby that are kind of in a war with the sheep – they try to stay out of each others’ territory but there have been some pretty funny run-ins.

There are seven new episodes on this DVD:

–  “Spring Lamb” – It’s bath time for a reluctant Timmy. In trying to escape, Timmy gets a spring attached to his tail. It’s up to the flock to catch the bouncing baby sheep and return him to the tub before he destroys the farm.

–  “Supersize Timmy” – Timmy accidentally eats a tomato grown with “Miracle-Grow” fertilizer and expands to become the King Kong of sheep. Shaun must keep the giant toddler out of sight while trying to figure out how to return him to normal size.

– “Bagpipe Buddy” – The sheep discover a set of bagpipes on the rubbish dump which they immediately misidentify as a sick emu. They set about trying to nurse it back to health before releasing it back into the wild.

– “Cheetah Cheater” – A wildlife film inspires Pidsley the cat to play a prank on the flock by disguising himself as a leopard. Shaun is convinced there is a huge beast on the loose and concocts a plan to catch it.

– “Lock Out” – While preparing for bed, the Farmer manages to lock himself out of the house and is stuck outside in his pajamas. He decides to spend the night in the barn but his incessant snoring drives the flock mad. Shaun heads up an operation to return him to his bed without waking him up.

– “Draw the Line” – The flock hijack a road line-painting machine and cause chaos while creating giant works of art in the field.

– “Ewe’ve Been Framed” – When Shaun accidentally breaks the farmer’s glasses, he and Bitzer have their work cut out trying to prevent their short-sighted master from having mishaps around the farm. Things get a little hair-raising for the flock before Shaun manages to replace the smashed up spectacles.

Bonus features include a game and a bonus Timmy Time episode (a new show centered around Timmy, the baby sheep).

We love all of the episodes on this DVD and are thrilled to own it!  You can buy it on Amazon.com here.  It retails for $14.98 but at the time of this post is $10.99!
