Celebrate with Shaun the Sheep™ as he revels in his first holiday-themed DVD in Shaun the Sheep: We Wish Ewe A Merry Christmas from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. The sheep make sure The Farmer isn’t alone on Christmas, help to free him from his snowed-in house, take care of Bitzer, find him the perfect new hat and make merry in these seven hilarious episodes — the perfect way to join Shaun and his barnyard buddies in ringing in some holiday “shear”!
Our Take: The Shaun the Sheep Cartoons are short enough to hold my four year olds attention, they are only about five minutes long. I think that this cartoon would be for the younger crowd, although it is a very cute cartoon. I am a big fan of holiday cartoons, I have them on even as background noise all throughout the holidays. This would make a cute gift for the pre-school crowd.
We Wish Ewe A Merry Christmas: Shaun discovers that The Farmer will be spending Christmas Day alone. The animals work through the night festooning the farmhouse with decorations so that The Farmer wakes up to the most magical Christmas that he has ever experienced.
Snowed In: Shaun and his buddies awaken to find the farm covered in snow. But while the sheep enjoy themselves in a massive snowball fight, they are all unaware that The Farmer is snowed inside the farmhouse and trying desperately to escape.
Fireside Favorite: Bitzer has caught a cold and The Farmer decides to tuck him up in the house to recover. In doing so, Pidsley the cat is ousted from his favorite spot next to the fire. The mean cat attempts various ways to remove the snotty dog while the sheep do their best to keep Bitzer where he needs to be.
An Ill Wind: The Farmer receives a huge electricity bill and decides to build his own wind turbine to power the farmhouse. As soon as The Farmer’s back is turned, Shaun and the flock adapt the noisy new contraption into something much more fun – a ferris wheel. It’s not long before The Farmer blows his fuse.
Bitzer’s New Hat: The Farmer gives Bitzer a horrible new hat. Bitzer is very upset, as he treasured his old hat. The flock rally round to try and cheer him up with a selection of dashing alternative head-gear. Meanwhile, Shaun heads off on an adventure to find out what The Farmer did with the old one.
Chip Off The Old Block: The Farmer has taken up sculpting, but unintentionally drops a huge slab of stone on top of Timmy’s teddy. Shaun and the flock must struggle and strain to lift the heavy block and retrieve the precious toy.
Shirley Whirley: In a bid to help move Shirley around the farm, Shaun has the idea of fitting up Shirley with wheels. Using a remote control, Shaun can now maneuver his large friend around easily – until The Farmer’s TV remote interferes with the signal, causing Shirley to run amuck.
