SHAUN THE SHEEP: THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is an animated comedy special streaming on Netflix where Shaun’s son, Timmy, accidentally gets picked up by a little girl at a Christmas fair, which prompts a makeshift rescue attempt. SHAUN THE SHEEP: THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is hilarious family entertainment, with an endearing finish that celebrates family and the joy of Christmas.

On the morning of Christmas Eve, Shaun looks inside the farmhouse and sees two big stockings hanging on a laundry line. They’re much bigger than the puny Christmas stockings the farmer’s dog gave them. Meanwhile, the farmer puts too much carbonated fixings in the lemon soda he plans to sell at the town’s Christmas fare that day.

Shaun and his son, Timmy, sneak into the farmer’s house to steal the socks, but they have to pretend to be Christmas presents when the farmer, dressed as Santa, comes downstairs. Timmy, hiding in a Christmas box, exits the house through the doggie door, and mistakes the farmer for Santa. He hops in the farmer’s truck when he leaves for the fair.

Shaun and the other sheep follow the farmer’s truck to the fair. However, at the fair, Timmy wanders into the Santa display, and Santa gives the Christmas box to a little girl. She takes the box with Timmy in it home with her.

Can the sheep rescue Timmy from the little girl’s house before she opens her presents on Christmas day.

THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS is hilarious, endearing and brilliant. As the plot unfolds, countless visual jokes occur. For example, the farmer’s dog follows the sheep to the little girl’s house, where he falls into a frozen pond and freezes into a block of ice. The dog tries to break the ice cube entrapping him by tumbling from a brick fence onto a sidewalk, but he ends up just breaking the sidewalk.

THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS ends by celebrating family and the joys of Christmas. Two short scenes feature musical strains from “Silent Night,” and there is a reference to the Christmas star. However, there are no references to the Nativity or Baby Jesus, just references to Santa Claus.
