Shaun the Sheep: Little Sheep of Horrors

The mute, yet impossibly funny flock is back. Of course, these sheep are clever. Of course, they are also sneaky and a little bit weird. Add those characters to a wristwatch wearing, coffee drinking dog and you can't miss, right?

Little Shop of Horrors - While the Farmer is watching a horror movie, he doesn't realize the whole flock is peeping through his window. After he goes to bed, the littlest sheep, Timmy, slips into his recliner and helps himself to the leftover pizza. Havoc ensues as Shaun organizes a rescue mission.

Sheep Walking - Shaun has developed a troublesome nighttime habit - walking around the farm while fast asleep. Of course, the Flock's natural instinct is to follow, which leads to trouble and hilarity.

Abracadabra - When the Farmer decides to throw out his magic set, Shawn scoops it up to put on a show of his own. Things get out of hand when members of the Flock start disappearing.

Things That Go Bump - It was a dark and stormy night and the Flock could not sleep. Something out there was making a racket and it's up to Shaun to find the culprits.

Heavy Metal Shawn - The Farmer inspects the lawn with a metal detector. When Shawn and Bitzer try it, they discover a metallic threat behind a hedge.

Troublesome Tractor - The Farmer's tractor is not running well and seems destined for the scrap heap. The sheep do him a favor and give it a complete makeover.

I think Shaun the Sheep videos are a little bit different from the rest of animated programming. They are silent but very expressive, and they have that great humor. While five minute shorts currently air on the Disney Channel, full length episodes are only available on DVD. Join Shaun as he leads his fearless flock through six new adventures that mix the spooky, the kooky, and the just plain funny.
