Customer Reviews

Great British humor mixed with just good storytelling and slapstick type humor.
J. Penar
They tell delightful stories without words and the facial expressions are priceless.

It worked perfect and I can't believe how great it looks in glorious widescreen.

No need to go over the content - you either love Shaun or not. My 6-year-old daughter and I love watching Shaun. These US releases are great, except that for some inexplicable reason they've all been pan-and-scanned to 4:3 screen size - which means they're cutting off a good bit of the scene, where often a lot of side details are happening.

We have region-free DVD players so we got the British version, which is the original widescreen format. The UK version of this is £9.99 on amazon.co.uk but Americans don't pay British taxes so it ends up being £8.50 plus ~£4 in shipping, roughly $20 including shipping. Just make sure your DVD player is region-free before you buy.

If you don't have a region-free DVD player or if you don't care that they're cutting up the picture, buy this version - you'll still enjoy over 4 1/2 hours of Shaun the Sheep - you'll just be losing some details. Complain to Aardman though - why are they doing this to the US versions?

This is a great British series but when it was released in America the decided to crop all of the Widescreen episodes into 4:3 pan & scan. In the UK you can buy it in Widescreen, but here they refuse to release it in its proper format. It is also unavailable in Blu-Ray in either country for some reason. If you haven't seen it it is still worth getting, but it is a real shame that they had to ruin the presentation. Hopefully they will come out with it in Blu-Ray widescreen.

Received this today as a gift. Was first disappointed to see that they used an unnecessarily large double-wide DVD case for this release. It's such a waste of space on the shelf. However, I was devastated to look at the back and discover this was presented in 1.33:1 FULL FRAME. This show is aired in 16:9 widescreen in the UK and released in that format there. I (maybe stupidly) assumed they would release it the same way here in the US. Such a disappointment--this show deserves a better release. Will keep my fingers crossed for a corrected blu-ray release.

If you have already watched this show before on TV then I WOULDN'T reccommend this FULL FRAME version. You'll loose 30% of the details of the show because you know what to expect. If this is your FIRST TIME viewing it, it'll be alright BUT I'd still rather reccommend the WIDE SCREEN version

Everyone here loves Shaun the Sheep and I am certainly no exception! I think it's even more brilliant than Wallace & Gromit; there is no speaking yet the humour is so clearly communicated. I also love the idea of watching an episode or two as a bedtime treat, as others have suggested.

Season One includes all 40 episodes from the following separately released DVDs:

Off the Baaa (8)
Back in the Baaath (8)
Sheep on the Loose (6)
Little Sheep of Horrors (6)
A Woolly Good Time (6)
One Giant Leap for Lambkind (6)

Even if you were to purchase these separately at used prices, the price of a brand-new Season One compilation DVD is still the better value for the money. I purchased this item as a gift for my husband and plan to give the two individual DVDs I already purchased to other family members with children so they can enjoy Shaun as well.

Other reviewers of Shaun the Sheep DVDs have taken issue with the video format (cutting off the edges of the scenes) that's released in the US. Unfortunately we don't appear to have a choice in that and it seems unfair to rate the product poorly for a technical complaint when the content is clearly so exceptional.

Now if I can just be patient enough to wait for the release of Season Two......

This is one of the best cartoons I have seen yet. It's hilarious. We have watched quite a few episodes on netflix and I am interested in getting it in the DVD to keep. I think it is great family entertainment.

I got a preview of the DVD over Netflix, and while I'm impressed with the content, the discs themselves are pretty poor.

The show itself is great entertainment. You don't have to feel too guilty about watching it because it doesn't play out as an educational show - just a bit of entertainment that parents wouldn't object to showing their kids. Really it's a slapstick silent comedy (with clay sheep), and the characters show personality without ever saying a word. Plus, the Wallace & Gromit creators dip into a huge pool of cultural references that's really entertaining to spot in various shorts.

Looking at the discs, well, we have a 16:9 widescreen image that was *squeezed* into a 4:3 frame rather than cropped, making everything look squished together. I'm really not confident enough to encourage paying whichever party didn't put effort into the home video version.
