Shaun the Sheep was first seen stealing Wallace's cheese at the end of A Close Shave but since then he's been the living the life of... well, a sheep on the farm.
With the naughty pigs, his troublesome flock friends and the green aliens who pop by every now and then, Shaun has a lot on his plate. However, he always finds time to help his friends and have some fun.
Bitzer and the Farmer tend to upset the apple cart with their formal, fun-free ways, but Shaun has an answer for and a way to escape everything.
Our Review: Shaun The Sheep has become wildly popular with both children and adults alike. Why is this you ask? Well, the show makes use of the same sort of humour used by Aardman's Wallace & Gromit series - a unique blend of comedy which manages to work on two levels - one for children, and one for adults.
People who haven't seen this show may try and dismiss it as "another children's programme"... well, it is, but it is that and something more, which is what makes it so special.
