Shaun the Sheep: Shape Up With Shaun Review

The wooly-headed hero of Wallace and Gromit short A Close Shave, Shaun was an obvious candidate for spin-off stardom - and he doesn’t disappoint.

These eight short but perfectly formed vignettes combine the nostalgic charm of Postman Pat with the humour and gorgeous animation for which Aardman is justly famous.

Whether baaaaattling selfish pigs for the apple harvest or helping the farmer paint a picture, Shaun’s always got a solution - something of a character change from his dumb debut, but a welcome one. And there are inspired extended riffs, like the not-very-scary Little Sheep Of Horrors.

The show may be aimed at under-fives, but don’t let that stop you.
