Off To A Great Start!!
This was my first look at the one of the episodes of "Shaun Of The Sheep." I was very impressed, but not surprised as I've seen all the Wallace & Gromit films and shorts. Thus, I was well aware of the great talents of the "roots," so to speak, of these animated shorts.
In this first episode, it's the sheep vs the sheep vs. the pigs an all-out soccer (football to the British, who made this series) match with a cabbage as the ball. Well, the pigs aren't actually interesting in playing, just eating the "ball." All of this is very funny, very clever material. I especially loved the battle between the sheep and the pigs and the lengths the two groups went to manage control of the cabbage.
Other scenes earlier, such as the ball disappearing into the wool of a big, fat sheep is guaranteed to give you a laugh or two. Actually, about everything in here is good stuff!
