Are you a fan of Shaun the Sheep? I am. Ever since the first time I caught one of the shows on television I was hooked. In fact, I own several Shaun the Sheep DVDs.
If you are unfamiliar with the show, Shaun the Sheep is a series done in the Claymation syle. If you think about the classic holiday shows like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and A Year Without Santa Clause – those were all done in Claymation. New movies include Frankenweenie, Coraline and ParaNorman.
Shaun the Sheep is made by the same people who bring us Wallace and Gromit.
Shaun the Sheep is unique because there are no words. After all, sheep can’t talk. The main person in the series, the farmer, doesn’t use words either. He mostly grunts and makes sounds.
What makes this show so funny is the expression on the faces of the animals that live on the farm. They crack me up! I will actually laugh so hard that I’ll cry.
There is a brand new Shaun the Sheep DVD now available – Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’ Llamas.
The farmer and his dog Bitzer go to the country fair. Unbeknownst to them, Shaun has tagged along.
At the fair Shaun spots three fun loving Llamas. Shaun really likes them and want them to come back to the farm with the farmer, so he tricks the farmer into bidding on them at auction. His trick worked because the farmer brings the trio back to Mossy Bottom Farm.
Shaun and the rest of the animals that live on the farm were initially thrilled about the new additions to Mossy Bottom Farm – that is until the Llamas prove to be a handful. What was once fun and exciting has now been turned into total chaos thanks to their new friends.
This is a fun special – perfect for the Shaun the Sheep fan in your life.
The DVD has a run time of 59 minutes. It’s not rated (it’s safe for children – it’s mostly slapstick humor).
There are some bonus features worth checking out too.
- “Meet the Llamas” Featurette
- “The Director’s Perspective” Featurette
- “Behind the Fleece” Featurette
Be sure to check them out to get a better perspective on this special Shaun the Sheep episode. They will give you a much better appreciation for what goes on to bring these characters to life.
There are also two bonus episodes you can’t miss either – Cheetah Cheater and Zebra Ducks of the Serengeti. Funny! Funny! Funny!
Look for Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas where ever DVDs are sold.
