Shaun the Sheep

Welcome to Iain's latest animated interest. This time, it's claymation (or something like that). Think Wallace and Gromit except with sheep, pigs, a herding dog, and a bull as the main characters. Also, Shaun dances briefly at the end of each bit. Yes. Dances.

YouTube does not have a clip of "Saturday Night Shaun," but let me just say that the sheep set up a nightclub with a sheep DJ and Shaun dances until his wool falls off. The sheep like disco, but when a group of chain-wearing, dew-rag-sporting pigs break into the barn, they switch the music to breakbeat. True story.

It's fun, and funny, and it will help maintain Iain's total immersion in British children's programming. Yesterday one of the afternoon staff at his school asked me, "Does Iain have a little accent?"

"You mean because he says "Should I have a go?" and "can't" pronounced "cawn't"?

Yup. She thinks it's cute. I think it's a sign of how much he loves Kipper.
