European 3DS owners have been lucky enough to enjoy weekly animated shorts of Shaun the Sheep in Nintendo Video for a number of weeks. From Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, these episodes each give about 60 seconds of charming animation and humour.

Each episode involves a lot of dedication and hard work, however, as traditional stop motion clay animation techniques are used. To give you a glimpse of how these are produced Nintendo has provided a behind the scenes documentary called Raising the Baaaa!. Check it out below, and keep an eye out for the miniature 3DS.
