It has its own TV show with the same name, featuring 120 seven-minute episodes in 4 series.

 

The Aardman production notes that reveal the storyline for the comic adventure:

 

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he baa-rgained for! Shaun's mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it's up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him. Will Shaun find the Farmer in the strange and unfamiliar world of the City before he's lost forever?

The trailer reveals a lot of the mismatch between pastoral and city life, and the need to blend in. The actual details of the plot and the scheme to to find the Farmer are still left untold.

 

Shaun the Sheep The Movie introduces two new Aardman characters; Trumper the animal warden who rules the city's animal shelter with a rod of iron and Slip, an inner city orphan dog who helps Shaun save the day.

 

 

Richard Starzak and Mark Burton direct the stop-motion feature.
