Shaun the Sheep Reveals All in 'Raising the Baaaaa!'

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

He's not too sheepish

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.

These little episodes are a bit meh... Pirates is a genius film though, wonder how long that took to make?

Cool ^^ I really enjoyed the little videos once in a while, I'm sure they put in a lot of effort to create these and they all came out very well :D

That was really nice! I just love these episodes we're getting. They are such a joy to watch. I've played each one a few times and would gladly pay for them if it meant we could keep them. Hopefully folks in other regions will get to see them, too.

I love every single second of them. I'd wish the videos were 2 minutes though...

If they'd been 2 minutes long, we'd have been waiting even longer for them to show up.
@Victoria - That's a good point, they may show up for paid download at some point. I'd get them all for my son, I think. He loves them.

These are great animations, what else would you expect from Aardman anyways? My favourite was the one with the hay labyrinth, really made my day better.:)
