* PunnyName: Shaun rhymes with "shorn" (as in "sheared") in non-rhotic varieties of English. The DVDCommentary has an amusing bit of Nick Park trying helplessly to say it with an American accent.

* AnimationBump: While not as huge a difference between ''WesternAnimation/AGrandDayOut'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheWrongTrowsers'', the puppets are noticeably better-constructed and the character animation is subtler. This short also ratchets up the scope of things, including animating large flocks of sheep and extensive outdoor scenes. It was also the first installment of the series to have computer effects, used here to digitally remove the rig that helped Gromit's plane fly.

Wallace's crush Wendolene turns out to have ties to the local wool shortage, leading to Gromit being imprisoned for sheep-rustling, forcing Wallace to stage a daring jailbreak with the help of a woolly jumper-wearing lamb named Shaun. The three must face the real villain in a final showdown for all the yarn.

* FaceHeelTurn: According to Wendolene, Preston was once a sweet dog, but he recently turned in a murderous schemer.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: After Preston's malfunctioning hide is disassembled in the Mutton-O-Matic, Wallace rebuilds him to be a good dog again. The result however is a much more basic, pitiful looking robot running on wheels and powered by remote control. According to Wendolene however, his behaviour is just like his old self.]]
