I discovered Shaun the Sheep, a few years back. Was it in 2007? Or was it in 2008? But it's around that time that I finally met Shaun and the gang on Disney Channel. They didn't even use any words to communicate with each other, but the meanings behind their actions can be understood easily!
Look how adorable they are! Blitzer the Dog, Shaun the Sheep Leader and the Gang!
I remember having my entire family stuck in front of the TV, including my late dad and my older siblings, being amused by the antics of the flock of sheep.
I remember smiling widely when they do stupid stuff that left them in a tangle.
It was a sweet memory.
So what it's all about?
Shaun the Sheep thinks and acts like a person in a barnyard, which usually gets him into trouble. The farmer's sheepdog, Bitzer, tries to keep Shaun and his friends out of trouble. The farmer is oblivious to the humanlike features of his flock, who are like one big, happy family.
What I really love about them:
- they're funny, especially Shaun who thinks he's super smart like human too :D
- the dog, he was soooo talented. I mean, which dog can drive like he could? :D
- the tight relationship between the sheep, they might be stupid, but they do work well as a group, without being selfish like human beings
- the ADORABLENESS of the sheep! They're super cute with their fluffy fur!
- the fact that they are made of clay, how creative is that!
- the cute expressions:
It might not be a super fantastic show or anything, but it is stilll a favourite of mine because it brought some smile to my face, as a part of my old memories that can never be recreated :)
Kudos to the production team!
