Shaun the Sheep

Funny Site of the Day -- Aardman Animations, the excellent stop-motion cartoon makers and business partners of superstars Wallace and Gromit, has another fine, lighthearted series underway for television. Meet Shaun and his homies, invites Aardman:

Shaun is a sheep who doesn’t follow the flock – in fact, he leads them into all sort of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Shaun and his pals run rings around their poor sheepdog Bitzer, as he tries to stop the Farmer finding out what’s going on behind his back. The show also introduces a farmyard-full of new characters, including the Naughty Pigs, Timmy the baby lamb and the enormous Shirley, a sheep who eats anything and everything.

At the official Shaun the Sheep site, there's sheer fun found in the numerous video clips. Grab some goodies like email cards and desktop wallpapers. Plus, there is a farm full of related games and activities, including Home Sheep Home, Hide 'N Sheep, Woolly Jumper, Shaun Sudoku, Yogurt Mayhem, Spot the Difference, and Shaun's Bleat Box.
