YMMV: Shaun the Sheep

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: From The Movie, The Farmer catching Shaun mid-air after Trumper attempts to toss Shaun into the ravine.
  • Ear Worm:
    • The theme song. It's Shaun the Sheep, it's Shaun the Sheep...
    • The theme song for the spinoff, Timmy Time, is even worse.
    • The whistling version that plays at the end of every show might be the ultimate example.
    • The hip-hop version of the theme performed by Rizzle Kicks for The Movie is pretty great, too.
    • "Feels Like Summer" from the movie, especially the a capella rendition sung to Timmy.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Timmy and sometimes Shirley (she's so fat it's hard not to miss her!)
  • Moral Event Horizon: While Trumper from The Movie might have been a slightly pathetic villain at first, he eventually crosses the line either with the abusive conditions he keeps his captives in, or when he outright attempts to murder the farmer plus all the animals in the climax.
  • Nightmare Fuel: From The Movie, Trumper trying to outright kill the animals and the farmer by pushing their caravan into a gorge. It doesn't help that he's grabbed a scythe and has an uncanny resemblance to the Grim Reaper.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Timmy.
  • Shout-Out: The Movie features the song Search for the Hero Inside Yourself by M People, which was also featured in an episode of Father Ted that centred around a sheep.
  • Spiritual Licensee: The film, to an extent, is one for Sheep in the Big City.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • The happy flashback from The Movie, after it cuts to the drabness of the present day.
    • When Shaun gets stuck in the animal "shelter", you see just how badly the animals are treated.
    • The farmer's memory coming back to him just as he and the other animals think they're about to die. They all embrace and just... wait for the inevitable.
  • Ugly Cute: Shaun and the flock's new friend Slip is supposedly a dog (at least it barks and wags its tail) but looks more like a mangy mix of a rat a wombat and a dog. It's pretty cute nontheless.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Despite being rated U (suitable for all) in the UK, scenes such as Trumper's attempting to outright kill the farmer and the animals while carrying a scythe and resembling the Grim Reaper, or the scenes of animal captivity, made it in. There were a lot of crying kids in the cinemas.
