We absolutely LOVE Shaun the Sheep! Our kids are 5 & 6 years old. Appropriate for ALL ages -- young and old.
"Life's A Treat with Shaun the Sheep"
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Too good to miss! Ageless humor guaranteed to bring cheer. Watch for the eventual availability of all 40 cartoons in the U.S.
Shaun the Sheep, appearing in the thirty minute feature "A Close Shave" appeared in the UK (and other non-U.S. nations) as seven minute Oscar winning cartoons in 2007. "Off the Baa is a collection of eight of these cartoons from the first season (listed below). Shaun is the star of farm and flock in episodes that fascinate adults and children. There are no speaking parts, but the antics stretch reality and lighten any mood using animal and people sounds.
Disney Channel seems to be the only source for Shaun cartoon broadcasts in the United States, except videos from some foreign Youtube-like sites. If you buy any videos, beware of DVD regional coding, making sure it is zero or one for the U.S. Watch for other collections of eight cartoons each - including "Wash Day", "Sheep on the Loose", "Saturday Night Shaun", and "Abracadabra". "Back in the Ba-a-ath" is also available, but I cannot find the number of episodes it includes.
A little searching will reward you with plenty of Aardman Animations videos including Shaun the sheep exercise video, BBC shorts, as well as Wallace and Grommit features, "Cracking Contraptions", full length films, cartoons, advertisements, and over a dozen new characters.. The new "A Matter of Loaf and Death" will begin to be available in June 2009 in the U.S.
Two further recommendations: First, BEWARE of torrent downloads of Shaun the Sheep series. One is a vicious scam. Second, Wikipedia has a rather complete write up on Shaun. Links too.
Off the Baa includes the following eight episodes from the first season:
Off The Baa!
Timmy In A Tizzy
Buzz Off Bees
Things That Go Bump
Shaun Shoots The Sheep
Mountains Out Of Molehills
(episodes 1, 4,13, 20, 7, 14, 15, 18 respectively)
Happy Sheeping. Oh, and you may see clips on Amazon.uk"
Glad I found this.

"My wife and I have been big Wallace and Gromit fans for a while now. My wife especially thinks that Shaun the sheep is adorable. One day we saw this playing somewhere and I made a mental note of it to look for it on Amazon. I found this video some time later when I remembered, and ordered it as a Christmas Present. The movie is great, just like all of the other Aardman productions. One thing that really sets it apart is that there really isn't any dialogue, but threre isn't any needed because the whole thing is so well done. This movie is highly recommended to anyone who likes movies like Wallace and Gromit. I am hoping they continue to make more adventures so we can add them to our collection as well."

"This was purchased for one of our adult children as a Christmas present. Our entire family enjoyed watching it. Our grandchildren like watching this dvd but there is also more subtle humor that adults can pick up on. Make sure to purchase the correct Region 1 for USA viewing - many of these DVD's are formatted for the UK - These DVDS need to be labeled on the front and on the order form confirming you which region you are ordering."
