Cute, that describes it so well
16 July 2001 | by plok253See all my reviews

I wasn't too sure what to expect when I heard Sheep in the Big City received it's own series. All in all, I'd have to say it's very funny, and has a lot of charm. Sheep is constantly being chased down by the military, as they need a sheep for their new ray gun. Of course, Sheep will make sure they never take him alive! One must wonder, however, why don't General Specific and Private Public go after a different sheep instead? I'd also like to know how exactly a sheep is an exponent in a ray gun. However, that's the kind of humor to expect from this show. It does get a little repetitive unfortunately, as General Specific never actually catches Sheep (or even come close to doing so) in any of the episodes. However, Sheep always gets into trouble unintentionally while trying to hide. What really makes the show so hysterical, however, is the incredibly sarcastic narrator Ben Plotz. He's always commenting throughout the show on whether or not he thinks General Specific's plan will work, and whenever Sheep is feeling blue, you can be sure he'll say something like "Awwwwww, poor Sheep." Overall I'd give this show an 8/10. It's actually quite similar to Ed Edd n Eddy, as both shows have so many different events going on at the same time it can be difficult to follow (which is more of a good thing.) However, the environment is a lot different, and offers a lot more variety. Even so, I'd say I prefer Ed Edd n Eddy because of the fantastic character development. That's not to say the characters in Sheep in the Big City are flat, as everyone's full of personality. However, the characters are much more open with each other on Ed Edd n Eddy than Sheep, which knocks it down a little. But even so, this show is a worth watching. And hey, how many cartoons end with a Ranting Swede?
