* ExecutiveMeddling: Cartoon Newtwok outright demanded that all of the jokes that required reading be accompanied by an off-screen voice reading it. Willems and co. only compromised by adding the little man who shows up during those gags, randomly saying that he likes reading and disappears.

** Episodes 1 thru 7 premiered with strong ratings between September 2000 and January 2001, though episodes 8 and 9 were held back into March. However, the last four episodes of the season never managed to air until the summer of 2001, on Sunday evenings. The series was initially cancelled after the first season ended on July 29, before being UnCancelled shortly afterwards thanks to popular demand; a second season was ordered in early September of 2001, and started airing on December 2 that year. The first four episodes aired that month in the same time slot as late season 1. However, the show went on yet another hiatus in January 2002, and the last nine episodes were burned out over the following months with a time slot of Sunday night at 7 PM, [[FridayNightDeathSlot when the target audience would not usually be watching TV]]. The show aired it's last episode on April 7th, 2002; after it reran five days later, the show officially died out.
** According to an old Toonzone thread, a third season was planned to begin airing in 2003 and was briefly in production, however it was cancelled at the last minute when the channel greenlit ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''. 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 milestone, the show slipped back into obscurity. The show was also acknowledged in 2016, when Cartoon Network uploaded the theme song to its YouTube channel, along with multiple other shows.
