When the Farmer and Bitzer go to a Country Fair, Shaun tags along intent on causing mischief. Shaun spies an auction where he sees three exotic and very crafty Llamas going under the hammer. Instantly besotted by their fantastic pranks Shaun gets the unwitting Farmer to buy them. Back at Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun is delighted with his prank and convinces the Flock that the Llamas are just what they need to spice up their lives. At first everything's great fun, but soon their new Llama room-mates get a bit too comfortable in their new home. When things spiral out of control, Shaun is forced to take action to oust the intruders and save the farm.
Nick Park, where were you?
- Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas review by JD
I think this is aimed at 3 - 8 year olds. It is a silly story involving 3 llamas who cause wanton damage and act very selfishly towards the other farmyard animals, causing initially sadness then anger and finally relief when finally they go. Not really what I would recommend for small children but maybe there is a good moral in it somewhere. The sadness for me is that there are Nick Park animations that I have watched with great joy for decades and have been an inspiration to generations. These are tough acts to follow and it fails miserably.
