- Thomas and the Snowman Party
- Merry Misty Island

And there is a bonus feature – Sir Topham Hatt’s Snowman Game!

If you haven’t seen Shaun the Sheep yet you are really missing out! There is hardly any dialogue but tons of humor and laughter. It is a British stop-animation sensation from the award winning creators of Wallace & Gromit. In each episode you see the mischievous try and outsmart the sheep dog. Don’t be fooled though, sometimes the sheep dog is a willing accomplice. Every episode involves the sheep in some sort of high jinks as soon as the farmer leaves or turns his back. There are hilarious characters like the fat & wooly sheep and Timmy the baby sheep that don’t distract but add to the hilarity of these short episodes.
Five minute shorts of the series currently airs in the USA on the Disney Channel. You can only watch full episodes on the DVDs and I totally recommend them even for children as young as my Bubs – 19 months.
Purchase on Amazon.com for $11!
