'The series revolves around the adventures of Shaun the unusually bright sheep, now living with his flock at Mossy Bottom Farm, a traditional small northern British farm. In each episode, their latest attempt to add excitement to their mundane life as livestock somehow snowballs into a fantastic sitcom-style escapade, most often with the help of their fascination with human doings and devices. This usually brings them into conflict--and occasionally into partnership--with the grumpy sheepdog Bitzer, while they all are simultaneously trying to avoid discovery by the Farmer.'
