Halloween: Shaun the Sheep of the Dead

Trailer mash-up combining Shaun of the Dead with scenes from my beloved Shaun the Sheep. It's more funny than cute, but I put it up because I'm such a Shaun fan.

The episode of 'Shaun the Sheep' where he had to go into the house to rescue the baby sheep's stuffed toy is one of the most brilliantly concieved and carried out bits of comedy/animation that I have ever seen.

I am sure you have seen it so I don't need to recount the story but anyone else needs to seek it out. Shaun's final solution to defeating the house cat who was standing in his way of completing his mission is deliciously elegant and proof to the value of the phrase "KNOW THY ENEMY."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that Shaun The Sheep has been recently resurrected as "Timmy" - a young children's program on Playhouse Disney. My 16 month old usually has me up before 6am and she loves the Disney channel.

We were up early one morning having breakfast and I saw Shaun The Sheep on my TV, but they were calling him Timmy. It's the exact same character, only now he's off to school with his barnyard friends.

Have you seen this?

I have seen it. It's called Timmy Time. I watched the first episode and decided it wasn't for me; as much as I love Aardman Animation, Timmy Time is really aimed at kindergartners and preschoolers. I like that kids are growing up on Timmy, though. I miss the pacifier...
