My husband is a big fan of claymation, like Wallace and Gromit, etc… So needless to say, he and the kids were ecstatic when they learned that Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment were releasing a new DVD, on April 19, 2011, called Shaun the Sheep: The Big Chase!, and we had an advanced sample to review! I just love these stories. They are kind of quirky, fun for the kids and great for parents too. I love that the length of each story is short (about 10-15 minutes), so that you can show a short video before bed or nap without investing a lot of tv time. I love how the characters are cute and cuddly but have honery personalities.
Here is a synposis of Shaun the Sheep: The Big Chase!
Start your engines for fun and laughter with Shaun the Sheep™ and his barnyard buddies as they speed off to stir up some mayhem in the meadow. The Oscar®-winning creators of Wallace and Gromit™ accelerate the laughter with revved-up adventures, from big races and chases to bikes and boats and everything in between. So buckle up for a wild ride with Shaun, Bitzer, Shirley, Timmy, and those Naughty Pigs next door as fun on the farm shifts into high gear!
The DVD include 7 short cartoons, including:
- The Big Chase
- Bitzer From the Black Lagoon
- Zebra Ducks of the Serengeti
- Bitzer’s Basic Taining
- The Magpie
- The Boat
- Hide & Squeak
My entire family enjoyed this DVD (we’ve watched it twice already). It would be great for a family movie night, and will be sure to get some big laughs from the little ones! My 5 year olds favorite is The Big Chase, when Timmy the sheep takes off on the farmer’s ATV. Each cartoon is endearing in it’s own way. I didn’t even mind watching them two times, myself!
Shaun the Sheep The Big Chase is available in stores and on Amazon.com.
