Shaun the Sheep is a 7-minute claymation television series featuring the character of the same name from the Wallace & Gromit short A Close Shave, created by Nick Park and aired since March 2007. It was spun-off into a series for younger children named Timmy Time, based on one of its side characters, and a feature film in 2015.

Each episode takes place at the Mossy Bottom Farm, where Shaun spends his days with his flock as they get into mischief while trying not to have the Farmer notice them, having sheepdog Bitzer either suffer or co-operate and/or getting back at the Naughty Pigs (and in season 2, pet cat Pidsley).

Spoiler warning!
This article contains details of the ending and/or a surprise plot element.

Off the Baa (S01E01)[edit]

The sheep are using a roll of cabbage as a soccer ball while the pigs want it as a snack. Timmy eventually ends this battle by kicking it so high that not even Shaun can reach it, into a duck's throat.

Shape Up With Shaun (S01E03)[edit]

Shirley has gained even more weight than usual, so Shaun and the rest of the sheep help her shape up. She is seen as slim for the first time, but when Timmy forces every brick into the second shopping cart on their scale, Shirley gets shot into the air and conveniently lands in a pie van, instantly gaining her weight back.
