Shaun The Sheep Review

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
