It seems the team at Aardman doesn?t believe in taking things easy. Over the past 12 months, not only has it been working very hard to establish Shaun the Sheep around the world, it has also started pre-production of pre-school spin off Timmy, is planning a Wallace & Gromit TV special and has signed up with Cartoon Network and Jamie Oliver for Chop Socky Chooks and Little J respectively.
