Shaun the Sheep, The Farmer's Llamas review

The claymation sheep gets in trouble with some Peruvian pals in this Boxing Day adventure.

Radio Times review

In this latest adventure Shaun visits a local fĂȘte and ends up mistakenly bidding for a trio of - as it turns out, wildly destructive - llamas. The moment when sheepdog Bitzer realises what is happening and tries to stop him is beautifully done and the llamas' subsequent reign of terror at Mossy Bottom (they can only be placated by pan pipes) is animated havoc at its best.
