A wayward balloonist lands in the sheep's field. Shaun and his friends are intrigued by the hot air balloon and inadvertently take to the skies. Down on the ground an ever more desperate Bitzer runs himself ragged attempting to bring the wayward sheep back down to Earth safely.
The cockerel is missing and there's no one to wake up the farm. When Shaun discovers the cockerel has been snatched by the greedy fox, he sets off with Bitzer on a daring rescue mission. Will they get the cockerel back in time to wake up the rest of the farm?
Bitzer thinks The Farmer is planning to replace him, so Shaun helps to knock his friend into shape. Unfortunately Bitzer goes completely over the top with his training regime and starts running the farm with military precision driving everyone crazy.
