One of the reigning genuine delights of childrens television, eight of the adventures of Shaun The Sheep
are brought together on this compelling and vital DVD.
The creation and work of Nick Park and his team at Aardman Animations (whose other delightful creations include, of course, Wallace & Gromit and the more recent Flushed Away), Shaun The Sheep follows its title character, who its fair to say isnt one to go with the flock. And, with a strong backing collection of characters, including the memorable sheepdog Bitzer, the result is a collection of charming and very funny escapades with real, honest family appeal.
As youd expect from Aardman, Shaun The Sheep is an exquisitely animated piece of work, painstakingly detailed and clearly a real labour of love. But its the writing too that underpins these eight instalments, and while you cant help wondering if a few more of the episodes could be squeezed onto the disc, theres little arguing with the rewatch value on offer here. Not least because of Shauns likely near-magnetic hold on the younger end of its broad audience.
A firm and refreshing riposte to those who claim childrens television is nowhere near as good as it used to be, Shaun The Sheep is simply terrific, wholesome entertainment. And itll happily give the vast majority of supposed-kids TV shows a run for their money
It's chaos in the countryside with that rebellious Shaun the Sheep!
Shaun is a sheep who doesn't follow the flock - in fact, he leads them into all sort of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Shaun and his pals run rings around their poor sheepdog Bitzer, as he tries to stop the farmer finding out what's going on behind his back. Every day brings a new adventure for Shaun.
Featuring eight baa...rilliant adventures from the fantastic BBC series, loved by children and adults alike: Shape Up With Shaun; Bathtime, Fetching; Take Away; Still Life; Scrumping; Little Sheep Of Horrors; The Kite. Also includes a delightful Shaun sing-along.
Shaun the Sheep's adventures are produced by Nick Parks Aardman Animations studio, the creators of Wallace and Gromit.
