After the disapointing Flushed Away Aardman and Dreamworks split up and went there seperate ways. Now Aardman are back to there original brilliance with this witty and funny TV show about Shaun from the W&G episode The Close Shave. There is also a bunch of fantastic new characters in this show. Wach Shaun The Sheep weekdays on BBC1 at 3.45 pm. Its cracking Aardman

Shaun The Sheep is great, possibly the best thing on TV at the moment (after The Sopranos).

I thought Flushed Away was very good too. And doesn't Shaun more or less pre-date Dreamworks anyway given the number of shorts they've filmed? There are some moments of genius in it - mainly with the dog IMO! - and clear indications of the level of drugs the writers are on. Bloody annoyingly catchy theme tune too. Now if we could only get rid of the daft bint that introduces it.

Flushed Away was a lazy animation and not a patch on any of Aardmans other work. What I like about Aardman is there stuff is witty and clever but Flushed Away was just stupid, the songs were boring, the humure was flat and the characters were rubbish, they were neither funny nor witty just plain average characters. A massive disapointment.

Shuan the Sleep has been in development and production for domkey's years now.  It's good to see that children finally have something good to watch

Flushed Away was hilarious. I'll think you'll find that the only failure was that it didn't do well at the box office. It was nearly as funny as Wallace and Gromit!

I'm with Bond on this one. Flushed Away was great fun, comes close to Wallace & Gromit in teh funny stakes.

As for Shaun The Sheep, it's brilliant! Those pigs are just evil

Agree about this series - having caught a couple of the episodes over the weekend it's great short animation and better than most rubbish on kid's tv. Lovely individual characters created and wonderful expressions from them all. Definitely one to catch if you can.

Realy? It was not a patch on Wallace & Gromit. Infact comming from aardman it was just plain poor.

It may have been poor coming from Ardman, but compared to most of the other animated crap plagueing our cinemas, it be Oscar worthy.

Shaun's back!

Yesterday's episode"The Visitor" was hilarious, one of the best they've done

Shaun the Sheep was an awful character, pretty much anyone that was a fan of W&G from the start would agree, completely turned a cleverly funny animation into a daft animation, Shaun was introduced purely to lower the target audience down to little girls who wanted a cute character. I'm ok with him having his own series aslong as he stays away from W&G.

Flushed Away was much better, and I think the only people that disliked it will have been from the newer generation of W&G fans, the type that liked Shaun the Sheep, and probably started their W&G watching days with A Close Shave and not A Grand Day Out.

Aardman need to stick to their roots, they're much funnier when they do.
