Trivia

Shirley's original working name was 'Big Fat' but this was thought to be too insulting for a children's program, so she was renamed after 'Big Daddy', a UK TV wrestler, whose real name was Shirley Crabtree. See more »

Finally the BBC has produced something of worth!
26 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

'Shaun the Sheep' is one of the few shows in the BBC that makes you not grudge forking out for a TV license. It is hilarious, adorable and far too good for the children it is clearly aimed at. The series of five-minute episodes sees Shaun, a character from the 'Wallace and Gromit' film 'A Close Shave', as he and other farm yard friends (including his fellow sheep, the farm dog and the Naughty Pigs) get into various escapades. Each episode is witty and lovingly put together in a manner that would appeal to both the very young and grown adults.

I definitely recommend this to all, regardless of whether you're a 'Wallace and Gromit' fan or not. It's also worth investing in when it finally goes to DVD.
