Shaun the Sheep!

wpid-wp-1438877143634.jpeg

Although a smaller sheep, Shaun the Sheep has leadership written all over him, and would probably be a better presidential candidate than most of the Republican field.  A break-out character from the third Wallace & Gromit short, ‘A Close Shave,’ Shaun is a resident of the Mossy Bottom Farm who needs some time off from the farm, eventually winding up with the flock in the Big City (London).  The farmer who pursues them winds up hospitalized with amnesia, and it falls to Shaun to free the farmer, return home, and restore the normal order of things.

Remarkably, this can be done without dialogue save for the odd sound effect and musical score.  Visual humor is key, with references made to The Shawshank Redemption, The Silence of the Lambs, and even The Wolverine.  We also learn that sheep, long under-rated creatures, can sing harmony.

Other films from Aardman Animations include Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run.  The resourceful Shaun also has his own television show in the United Kingdom…

    I think he’s the one who tried to frame me by tearing off a pre-purchase Seely Mattress tag…and stuffing it in my pocket.

      On a slightly more serious note: are you going to “skulk” on down to you hometown movie theater to see this?*

      * “Skulk” is to more than two foxes what “murder” is to more than two crows.

      The fiend! Those tags are not to be removed save by the consumer! There are penalties, and unpleasantness and stuff!

        Speaking of consumers: have you heard anything, yet, as to whether or not the movie-going public got “fleeced” by SHAUN THE SHEEP?
