Feeling sheepish

I haven't paid too much attention to Momma's mania for Shaun the Sheep.

Until now.
Shaun the Sheep is a British stop-motion animated children's television series produced by Aardman Animations (creators of Wallace & Gromit), and first aired in the United Kingdom in March 2007. The show, which is currently on hiatus, consists of 80 episodes in two seasons. It has been broadcast in 180 countries around the world.

In the second season episode Two's Company, Shaun finally finds true love. Near the end of the show Shaun presents his lady-love with a beautiful metal flower he creates for her using his considerable smithing talents.

(Of course Shaun's metal flower doesn't compare to mine!)

On the same disc (Shear Madness) Shaun goes for a hot-air balloon adventure.

And come to think of it, Shaun was introduced in the Wallace & Gromit short A Close Shave which also featured Preston, an evil cyberdog.

Maybe Shaun has some steampunk tendencies I was unaware of?

  1. Oh, I LOVE Shaun the Sheep! And Wallace and Grommit... hehe, well, pretty much anything by Aardman Animations (or anything British, for that matter!) I've known about it since it first came out, and I still enjoy it! :D
