The Most Gladdening Five Minutes on Television

Shaun the Sheep, a brilliant, hilarious, stop-motion world unto itself from Aardman Animations, the quintessentially British creators of Wallace and Gromit. Features the witty wily Shaun, the long-suffering sheepdog Bitzer, the clueless Farmer, and alot of your basic sheep. Perfect for when the world gets you down. If you don't have a kid who watches cartoons with her fruit course before school and obligingly yells "Sheep!" at 7:55 to alert you, there is, I should have known, a website here 

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
