SHAUN the SHEEP :ANIMAL ANTICS dvd review and giveaway

Ready to sow some seeds of fun?  Join the always delightful, baaaaa-dest sheep in the flock, Shaun, in the all-new Shaun the Sheep™: Animal Antics coming to DVD July 26, 2011 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment.  In these seven wild and hairy farm adventures released for the first-time-ever on DVD, Shaun and his barnyard buddies deal with a fiendish fox, attempt some clever catering, take to the links, run a farmer’s market, stage a daring rooster rescue and more!  With his woolly cronies in on the fun, “ewe” can’t go wrong with Shaun!

Five minute shorts of the series currently air in the U.S. on the Disney Channel and the series ranks in the top five animated shorts on the network!

Get ready for farm-fresh fun and laughter with Shaun the Sheep and his barnyard buddies, as they set the scene for more mayhem on the farm. Laugh out loud as Shaun tries to outfox a fox, Bitzer discovers his jazzy side, and the sheep try to sell everything on the farm to the highest bidder. Shaun and his friends deliver seven hilarious adventures full of animal antics that will make the whole family cock-a-doodle doo!

Episodes include:

  • Foxy LaddieA fox arrives at the farm, disguising himself as a handsome ram to infiltrate the flock and eat Timmy! All the lady sheep are beguiled by this charming new arrival – especially Shirley. Shaun becomes suspicious when the fox’s cunning disguise begins to fail.

  • Whistleblower: Bitzer loses his precious whistle and tests out the Farmer’s trumpet as a replacement.  Before long, the power of the trumpet goes to his head and his fanfares and jazz-styled bugling drives the flock around the bend.

  • Frantic RomanticThe Farmer is trying to impress his new date by cooking her a romantic dinner. Unfortunately, the Farmer can’t cook and Bitzer is a useless maître d'. Can Shaun and the flock save the day when they take over the catering behind the scenes?

  • Who’s the CaddyThe Farmer discovers his old golf clubs and decides to knock a few balls around in the field, instantly putting his back out. Shaun takes the opportunity to learn how to play while Bitzer, who desperately wants to show off his golfing prowess, is forced to tend to his injured master inside the house.

  • Everything Must GoThe Farmer has set up a stall by the side of the road, selling produce from the garden. He leaves Bitzer in charge for the day. But lazy Bitzer soon gets bored and gives Shaun the job while he puts his feet up by the pool. Shaun proves to be a much better salesman than Bitzer and the flock is only too happy to get stuck in selling pretty much all of the Farmer’s worldly possessions! 

  • In the DoghouseWhen Bitzer’s kennel is accidentally destroyed he hopes the Farmer will replace it with a new deluxe model. But when he sees his master’s clumsy attempt to build a new kennel, Bitzer is so horrified he packs his bags and leaves home. Shaun hopes to tempt Bitzer to return with the kennel of his dreams.

  • Cock-a-Doodle ShaunThe rooster is missing and there’s no one to wake up the farm. When Shaun discovers the rooster has been snatched by the greedy fox, he sets off with Bitzer on a daring rescue mission. Will they get the rooster back in time to wake up the rest of the farm?

My Thoughts
            Now my kids have been huge fans of Wallace and Gromitt since they were little so it is only natural that they love Shaun the Sheep.  Of course I like it too since I am a fan of Wallace and Gromitt as well.  It is also an added bonus that my fiancee owns sheep.  they make jokes that his sheep do things like Shaun does whenever he is not around -LOL.  This is definitely a cute dvd for the kids to enjoy and for parents as well.

The dvd is currently available for sale at mass retailers and online at sites like for $11.99.  It is sure to become a family favorite.  Also be sure to visit Shaun the Sheep online and Facebook.
