Shaun the Sheep: A Wooly Good Time (Review & Giveaway)

Shaun the Sheep is baAAAAAaaa-ck with more great episodes. Shaun and the rest of the barnyard sheep keep our family in giggles. The new Shaun the Sheep: A Whooly Good Time, just came out on February 16th, 2010 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. Our family was really excited to see what Shaun and the rest of the barnyard sheep would be up to this time!
The kids and the adults in our house laughed when "The Farmer's Niece" came for a visit in the. She looks just like the Farmer, and she is a little trouble maker. She gets her way, or she will holler. Shaun finally gets an idea that will make the little girl happy which turns out to be a hilarious disaster.

Shaun and the Sheep sure have a blast with the Farmer's clothes line and his laundry in the "Wash Day" episode. After making a mess of the clothes, the sheep decide to "clean" the clothes. Sheep+wash machine+ bottle of detergent = trouble!
Poor Bitzer, the farmer's dog, is left feeling miserable in "Tooth Fairy" and he will do just about anything to get relief. Shaun and a few other sheep try to help him out with several funny and wacky attempts, only to take a trip to the vet for removal.
We totally love Shaun the Sheep DVD's and highly recommend them to you and your family!

Synopis:
A little pinch of zaniness and a big dash of fun is the perfect recipe for laughter as Shaun the Sheep and his barnyard buddies Bitzer, Shirley, Timmy and friends get into more wacky shenanigans in Shaun the Sheep: A Woolly Good Time. The laughs keep rising as the creators of the Academy Award- winning Wallace & Gromit are on a roll, dough-ling out more sheep herding mayhem by the baker’s dozen.

Episodes include:
“Washday” – When the Farmer leaves, the sheep have loads of fun playing with his newly washed clothes hung out to dry. Quick! How to clean up the dirty garments before he returns?
“Tooth Fairy” – Bitzer gets a terrible toothache and Shaun takes the job as dentist hoping to help his friend and remove the painful tooth. But after several creative and hilarious attempts at extraction it’s off to the vet for success! But will the Tooth Fairy still visit Bitzer?
“The Farmer’s Niece” – The Farmer’s naughty niece comes for a visit and Bitzer and the fearless flock have to put up with her silly antics.
“Snore-Worn Shaun” – What can Shaun do to stop Shirley’s snoring? Nothing works so he and the flock decide to get her out of the barn with hilarious results!
“Helping Hound” – Farmer and Bitzer are fed up with the naughty sheep and hope a robotic dog will keep them in line. But there’s mayhem in the meadow when he turns out to be stricter than Bitzer!
“Big Top Timmy” – The sheep awake to find Timmy gone! The search is on and he’s found at a nearby circus. Can Shaun and the fearless flock rescue him and return to the barn before the Farmer finds out?
