When I saw this film recently in the cinema, I couldn’t wait to get it on DVD so I could pause each moment to try and find all the hidden details. So to carry on in the Aardman series, I have found some of the best Easter eggs hidden in the recent Shaun the Sheep Movie.
Without further ado, lets start with a quality cameo! If you don’t know this bus conductor is none other than Blakey, from UK show On the Buses.
This next one shows the amount of detail that goes into these films. In any old cobbler shop in the UK an animatronic man mending shoes can be seen in the window. The man is advertising Phillips shoe products. They are often seen in Timpson’s windows.
Its great to see a cameo from Shaun’s creator, Nick Park!
Near the end, when the pigs are watching TV, you should be able to hear the Morph theme tune coming from the set.
If you look carefully at the graffiti, you should see the names of people involved in the production of the film.
Time for another cameo. This time it is from the Wallace and Gromit universe. Miss. Thripp, one of the West Wallaby Street residents, can be seen in a few scenes in the film.
A few of pop culture items making an appearance.
This may sound a bit far-fetched, but bare with me. Rhett and Link created a character named Dope Zebra. This zebra was two men inside a zebra suit dancing to some funky music. During the film we see a pantomime horse doing a moonwalk to funky music. A coincidence? Probably.
A couple of Breaking Bad references.
After seeing the posters for the new Nick Park film, Early Man, I couldn’t help but see the resemblance.
Another lot of credits. These names are all the set designers!
Only one more Aardman film to look through before I create some accompanying videos.
