Stop-motion animation is one of the most amazing things out there.  Claymation especially is completely fantastic.  So much work goes into making everything and then moving it along that my mind boggles even thinking of the kinds of effort that are involved.  In my opinion, a claymation movie can be half as good as the latest Pixar flick and still be worth watching just because they put so much time into it.  Then when you get the rare stop-animation film that is excellent at the same time, that’s the perfect cinema storm.  Now one of those exact occurrences is available for you on DVD right now!

Starting this June 9th, now available on DVD from Lionsgate Productions and HIT Entertainment comes the next collection of hilarious episodes from the life and times of everyone’s favorite sheep in the whole wide world.  Shaun The Sheep – Sheep On The Loose is ready to scramble right out of your television screen and bring a whole barnyard of fun into your living room.  Bring home this fantastic and wholly original television series today!

This DVD contains six episodes.  The first of these is “Sheep On The Loose.”  In this episode, a bunch of sheep leave for the fair and now it’s time to bring them back.  The second of these is “Saturday Night Shaun.”  In this episode, Shaun decides to hold a rave in the barn, but when the Naughty Pigs show up, it all goes bad.  The third of these is “Tidy Up.”  In this episode, Shaun is recruited to help clean a field and that makes it even worse.  The fourth of these is “Shaun The Farmer.”  In this episode, Shaun decides to play at being farmer and it doesn’t work out like he planned.  The fifth of these is “Camping Chaos.”  In this episode, Shaun and his flock have to deal with a literal unhappy camper.  The sixth of these is “You Can’t Stand The Heat.”  In this episode, the sheep want to go for a swim, but the Farmer isn’t about to let them.

The special features included in this DVD are a look at how to make a Naughty Pig from start to finish from one of the chief model makers in the show and a great behind the scenes look at how the episodes themselves are made.  These are great special features, because they give kids a look behind the magic, but only increase the majesty of the show because they show how much work everything takes.

Once again, the geniuses behind Wallace & Gromit have hit comic pay dirt.  These six episodes are a wonderful assortment of whimsical and highly enjoyable adventures.  I was a particular fan of the episode where Shaun throws the rave and everything gets out of control.  It was hilarious!  All of these stories are wonderful and you can watch them time after time.  Your kids will love it, you will enjoy it and this will be one DVD purchase you will never regret.

Don’t Loose out on this great opportunity today!
