Life's A Treat With Shaun The Sheep

For the final day of "Sheep Week",
I give you "Shaun The Sheep."

"Shaun the Sheep" is a show created by the makers of "Wallace & Grommit". It airs on the BBC in England & the Disney Channel here in the states. It airs in a total of 73 Countries. It is one of my all time favorite shows. To find episodes online, go to and search "Shaun The Sheep".

Series Description from Wikipedia:

"A premise of the series is that Shaun the sheep exhibits human intelligence, creativity, and behaviour in a barnyard, which usually provides a situational comedy conflict which Shaun must resolve before the end of each episode. Recurring themes include the characters evading the sheepdog Bitzer (but he is sometimes with the sheep in their escapades) and avoiding discovery by the Farmer. In the first episode, a stray cabbage bouncing into the field provokes an impromptu soccer game. In the second episode, a freezing cold sheep dip sends Shaun on a commando raid to get hot water from the Farmer’s bathtub. Episodes are a combination of slapstick and classic silent comedy in Aardman’s recognisable animation style. There is no spoken dialogue, even by human characters. In this way it is reminiscent of early silent comedy films and even Pingu."

I am having trouble with my music player. I was going to add the theme song here. It went to number 1 in England last Christmas. I will add it later, if I can get it to work.

He's Shaun the sheep
He’s Shaun the sheep
He even mucks about with those who cannot bleat
Keep it in mind
He’s one of a kind
Oh life’s a treat with Shaun the Sheep

He’s Shaun the sheep ..
He’s Shaun the sheep ..
He doesn't miss a trick or ever lose a beat
Perhaps one day you’ll find a way
To …
come and meet with Shaun the sheep
Come and bleat with Shaun the sheep.
