Shaun the Sheep, an all-new series from Aardman Animations, will have Wallace & Gromit fans cracking up over new barnyard adventures! After Shaun first appeared in the 1995 Oscar-winning Wallace & Gromit short film, A Close Shave, the popularity of the character led to a spin-off series of 40 seven-minute episodes, which currently air as one of the top-five shorts on the Disney Channel. One of the most mischievous, adventurous and entertaining animals on the farm, Shaun deals with situational comedy conflicts in each episode. Combining slapstick humor and classic silent comedy, Shaun the Sheep will have fans of all ages flocking to the new DVD to enjoy all his wacky, wooly antics. Meet Shaun the Sheep – the Sheep with the plan in his first ever DVD compilation. From the shear genius that brought you the Academy Award-winning Wallace & Gromit, these hilarious adventures will have you wanting to join the flock! Shaun’s barnyard pals, Shirley, Timmy and those Naughty Pigs will have you rolling in the hay with laughter. Shaun the Sheep: Off the Baa! contains these eight comical adventures:
“Off the Baa” – Shaun turns a head of cabbage into a soccer ball for the ultimate midday soccer match. But he has to watch out – the neighboring Naughty Pigs look to steal the ball for an afternoon snack!
“Timmy in a Tizzy” – Little lamb Timmy is in tears when his stuffed teddy bear is in the clutches of the Farmer.
“Buzz Off Bees” – An altercation with a lone bee incites the hive into retaliation against the flock. Can Shaun take the sting out of a bad situation?
“Who is the Mummy” – The newly-hatched chicks think Shaun is their mom. Will Shaun be able to get rid of them?
“Mower Mouth” – Here’s a goat with an appetite for…everything. When the mad muncher gets loose, he takes Shaun for the ride of his life!
“Fleeced” – It’s wool-shearing time. From sabotaging the clippers to hiding in disguise, the flock will do anything to keep their wool on. It’s The Great Escape! Sheep style.
“Shaun Shoots the Sheep” – Say cheese! When tourists leave a camera behind, the sheep are ready for their close-ups. But when the Naughty Pigs swipe the clicker, it becomes a fight to the photo finish!
“Mountains Out Of Molehills” – It’s a mole lotta trouble! When a mole creates earthly havoc around the barnyard, the flock takes action to get rid of him. It’s one hill of a situation.
