I am a huge fan of all things SHAUN THE SHEEP, so when I saw this 30-minute short film, my heart just soared! Needless to say, I loved SHAUN THE SHEEP: THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. 

The story starts off simple. Shaun is upset the Christmas stockings they hang up are so small. So he decides to find bigger and better ones. Somewhere along the way, his little pal, Timmy, gets involved on the journey and needs to be rescued. This allowed for many adorable characters to be added as well as new places to go. It was fun snd silly. 

Of course, the farmer and the dog are around. They created many laugh-out-loud moments and all done with the art of claymation. They are true artists. This short also had several scenes reminiscent of HOME ALONE. Crazy, colorful, and zany chase scenes were the highlights and exciting for the entire family. 

SHAUN THE SHEEP: THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a holiday movie you won’t want to miss. It is available to stream on Netflix.
