On the 7th April 2014, Shaun the Sheep fans will be able to purchase his new DVD “Spring Cleaning”. The DVD features 10 short episodes, which includes a never-before-seen episode called “Let’s Spray”. This was my family’s favourite episode as Shaun and his younger brother were up to no good playing tricks on the farm’s resident dog by spraying graffiti. Also included are DVD extras such as “How to animate Shaun the Sheep” and “Behind the Scenes (Animators)”. Hubby is the sort of bloke who always watches the DVD’s extras, which it turns out was a good idea on this occasion because the girls were immediately engrossed to see how Shaun the Sheep was created.
Shaun the Sheep is one of those characters that I’m sure most parents will remember from watching Wallace & Gromit as a child. My girls have been introduced to this world through watching Timmy Time on Cbeebies, and then watching the Wallace & Gromit short films. Who would have thunk it that the episode “A Close Shave” would have given such a loveable character.
