"Bring home some “ewe-ltide” cheer when the seven-episode holiday special Shaun the Sheep: We Wish Ewe a Merry Christmas, which arrived on DVD (plus Digital), Digital HD, and On Demand on November 1 from Lionsgate.
From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated film, Shaun the Sheep Movie (Best Animated Feature Film, 2015), everyone’s favorite Aardman characters are back for the “baaa-lidays” with their signature laugh-out-loud comedy for the whole family to enjoy."
My girls went crazy when they saw this new holiday DVD arrive at the door, as they are huge Shaun the Sheep fans. This is one show I have tried to sit down and get into with them, but I can't. But, leave it to my husband, a kid at heart, to sit and love the show, right alongside the girls. All you can hear is laughing and then trying to mimic the sounds the characters make whenever they watch a Shaun the Sheep DVD we own.
I asked the girls and my husband what they thought of this holiday DVD and they kept cutting each other off, trying to share their favorite parts of this recent holiday DVD release They all agreed that this was the perfect to remind people of the importance of season -- helping others. And, that it is better to give than to receive. The farmer surprised the animals with holiday gifts, only to be left sitting in his house without any for himself, as if he was forgotten. When the farm animals see this, they work through the night decorating and getting presents ready for the family. When we wakes in the AM, he is overjoyed at the wonderment he sees.
The holiday DVD ends with farm animals being led by Shaun the Sheep in holiday caroling. I know this as I walked in and watched my girls pretend to be animals and singing/ making weird noises, as they join in. My husband and daughters give this 7-episode holiday DVD two thumbs up and said any Shaun the Sheep fan, both young and old, will want to have this holiday DVD to add to their growing Shaun the Sheep DVD collection.
’Tis the season to be woolly with Shaun the Sheep™ and his farmyard friends. Frolic with the flock as they decorate the farmhouse for the Farmer, watch Bitzer and Pidsley battle for a spot by the fire, join a massive snowball fight and much more in these seven hilarious episodes.
