The DVD presents a little series of stories about a small farm with some sheep and some pigs and attended by a grumpy farmer and his dog. All look ridiculous, of course, but in a rather touching way. The DVD is broken down into about a half-dozen short stories involving these characters (plus a few space aliens) and the individual stories are no more than about 10 minutes each. As such, my boy's attention is held. He will seldom watch a full DVD cartoon movie, for example, but will watch 6 of these episodes with no problem. The stories are simple-minded and somewhat humorous. Adults and older children can find them interesting, amusing and enjoyable, at least at the first viewing. My boy can find them enjoyable over and over. The little stories are well done. The claymation is excellent. The stories are accompanied by a simple music repeated and repeated, but it's well done and engaging. If you want a little break from looking after Junior or Little Miss and amuse him/her at the same time, this will probably do it.
(Hit Entertainment, 2010)
A funny, fast-paced childrens' series for all ages to enjoy... Tangentially a spinoff from the Aardman studios "Wallace And Gromit" films, this claymation extravaganza has become a runaway hit on British TV, and is equally delightful for viewers worldwide, as there is no dialogue in any of the episodes, just a sharp, sublime sense of humor, matched by equally delightful animation. Shaun is the most down-to-earth (though occasionally mischievous) member of a wily flock of sheep living on a rundown rural farm. The clueless, myopic farmer entrusts most of the herding duties to his dog, Bitzer, who wields a coach's whistle and not much else in his hapless attempts to keep the sheep in line.
In this volume, the show's cast is joined by a race of outer-space aliens who crash-land on the farm and are aided by Shaun and his crew. They later return to have a little fun -- the aliens are expressive and funny, a great addition to the show. (And would be great in a series of their own!) Other episodes are more down-to-earth, with typical farmyard hijinks. This disc is as much fun as all the others in the series... And if you haven't tried STS yet, you're in for a treat!

The grandchildren love Shaun the Sheep and this one does not fail to bring out smiles and laughter.
P.S. The grandparents love it too!
It doesn't seem right to try to use words to describe a movie that uses no words yet clearly communicates with everyone.Published 13 months ago by Leslie Ockerman
I got this DVD since our grandchildren love Shaun the Sheep. I'm not sure why, but this one doesn't seem quite as appealing as the other Shaun the Sheep videos I have.Published 14 months ago by Bonnie Dickson
