Shaun the Sheep, a brilliant, hilarious, stop-motion world unto itself from Aardman Animations, the quintessentially British creators of Wallace and Gromit.

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 

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
