Shaun the Sheep is a British stop-motion animated television series and spin-off of the Wallace and Gromit franchise. The series stars Shaun - sheep previously featured in the 1995 short film "A Close Shave" and in the "Shopper 13" short film from the 2002 Wallace and Gromit's Cracking Contraptions series - and his midcap adventures around a small farm as the leader of his flock. 

Shaun an unusually bright and clever sheep, lives with his flock at Mossy Bottom Farm, a traditional small northern English farm. In each episode, their latest attempt to add excitement to their dull mundane life as livestock somehow snowballs into a fantastic sitcom-style escapade, most often with the help of their fascination with human doings and devices. This usually brings them into conflict- and often into partnership- with the farm sheepdog Bitzer, while they all are simultaneously trying to avoid discovery by the Farmer.
