A recent poll by the Radio Times asked viewers which was the best BBC/ITV children's cartoon/show from the 1950s - 2000s. Despite a wealth of brilliant cartoons from the past, Shaun the Sheep from 2007 - present won the vote. What makes it so popular?

I think there is something about characters that don't speak, especially in animation, when personality and communication comes entirely from facial expressions, gestures, and actions. On top of that, Shaun in a very cute characters, has a previous fanship from Wallace & Gromit, and the show employ lots of slapstick comedy, which is very popular with kids.


I agree, and think the lack of voices adds appeal to the show.
I have no idea but my youngest loves it...!
We love it because Shaun is so crafty. He can get out of any situation no matter how difficult it is! :) Looking forward to the movie.
Yes, it certainly is a wonderful kids show., & adults seem to enjoy it, very much as well. And yes, "Bring on the Movie"!
