CHARACTER PROFILE FOR Shaun the Sheep & Bitzer

Unlike other sheep, Shaun is a superstar who doesn’t follow the flock. Instead, Shaun is the leader of the flock. He’s clever, adventurous likes to push the boundaries, which often results in him getting into trouble. This is where his friend Bitzer the sheepdog comes in. Shaun is Bitzer’s best friend and enemy at the same time. Bitzer tries to control the mischief and antics that go on within the flock.

Shaun’s cousin Timmy is the toddler of the flock. But be warned! He’s not as cute and innocent as he looks! Little Timmy worships Shaun, copying what he does, which often results in double trouble!
