Disappointed! Standards are dropping.
on 8 July 2010
I have bought all the preceding Shaun the Sheep DVDs and just love them. The grand children love them too!!
The characters have changed.
The farmer has a part plastic head. So does Bitzer who also has developed a hairy body.
As for the cat. It's not even the same one!! There was a marvellous simplicity to the orange plasticine cat. Now it looks like some inferior cat from a different production team.
The pigs all appear to have plastic, stuck-on snouts.
I think the animation team are trying to reduce the amount of work involved in making these wonderful characters. In the process some of the unique features and clever expressions have gone too.
I have replayed some of the previous episodes and Bitzer has far more 'character' than the new, furry re-incarnation.
And, there are no more sheep droppings in the field!! How will our extra-terrestrial visitor refuel??
Come on chaps. Don't let your standards drop or it will never be the same.
The story lines are still great.
