* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: There are no [=DVDs=], and the first season was taken off iTunes for reasons unknown to man. The only releases of the show was the pilot as a bonus on a The Powerpuff Girls VHS "Dream Scheme" and the The Powerpuff Girls DVD "Powerpuff Bluff". This ill treatment is surprising because back when the show first aired, it had the highest ever rated premiere for a Cartoon Network series. The entire series (all 26 episodes AND the pilot) are available on Dailymotion and other online video sites in their entirety.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Episodes 1-4 were shown over the fall of 2000, while the 5th episode aired as a 2000-2001 New Years Eve special. Episodes 6 and 7 were broadcast in January 2001 while episodes 8 and 9 were held back into March.

However, the show went on yet another hiatus in January 2002, and the last nine episodes were burned out in the winter of 2002 with a time slot of Sunday night at 7 PM, when the target audience is usually not watching TV or doing homework. The show aired it's last episode on April 7th, 2002 after 26 episodes and 2 seasons. The final episode reran on April 12th 2002, and then the show was pronounced dead.
** According to an old Toonzone thread, a third season was planned to begin airing in 2003 and was briefly in production, however was cancelled at the last minute in the Summer of 2002 due to Codename Kids Next Door being greenlit. Reruns became sparse after 2003, basically slipping silently off the air and CN's website. For a couple of years after, the only way to see Sheep was on Boomerang, but that too didn't last for long.
** It wasn't until 2012, 10 whole years after the show officially ended, that CN acknowledged it's existence again as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. However, after the celebrations, the show went straight back into being a two-season wonder. Only the show's most diehard fans remember it, and sadly, most of them are only aware of Season 1, due to the fact that Season 2 almost never even happened. And many of the fans that HAVE watched both seasons only like Season 1, because Season 2 lost a lot of the Rocky And Bullwinkle-esque humor that Season 1 had.

However, the show went on yet another hiatus in January 2002, and the last nine episodes were burned out in the winter of 2002 with a time slot of Sunday night at 7 PM, when the target audience is usually not watching TV or doing homework. The show aired it's last episode on April 7th, 2002 after 26 episodes and 2 seasons. The final episode reran on April 12th 2002, and then the show was pronounced dead. According to an old Toonzone thread, a third season was planned to begin airing in 2003 and was briefly in production, however was cancelled at the last minute in the Summer of 2002 due to Codename Kids Next Door being greenlit. Reruns became sparse after 2003, basically slipping silently off the air and CN's website. For a couple of years after, the only way to see Sheep was on Boomerang, but that too didn't last for long. It wasn't until 2012, 10 whole years after the show officially ended, that CN acknowledged it's existence again as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. However, after the celebrations, the show went straight back into being a two-season wonder. Only the show's most diehard fans remember it, and sadly, most of them are only aware of Season 1, due to the fact that Season 2 almost never even happened. And many of the fans that HAVE watched both seasons only like Season 1, because Season 2 lost a lot of the Rocky And Bullwinkle-esque humor that Season 1 had.
