I've just been through this whole thread. What fun!
And stuff like this blows me away because of the intense labor involved in creating animation frame by frame. The humor of the bit is praiseworthy enough but the expressions of the sheep!
I'm dying of curiosity about the process. How many hours does it take to make one of these clips? Is the same sheep used for all of them or are there dozens? I wonder if Jemaine got to help with any of the claymation? Didn't he mention once how much he liked it, or it was his hobby...or something?
It was also fun to see that an episode or two were produced by Vicky Pope who is also now producing Two Little Boys, and the credits also read, "Thanks to Robert Sarkies".
Well, you know I love pics so I grabbed a few from that article on page one...
Aw cool. There are several different Robert snouts sitting there!
I wondered about that. How on earth does he match the dialog to the expressions? Unless the animation is done first...but then how would he...
I can't get my head around it.
And they're just so dang cute!
I feel like I may be missing an episode. Was there more than one on Radiradirah? I'm counting 9 episodes, but I don't remember seeing this part in any of them:

I like the mumble counting...
Didn't Guy Capper do the apple animation for Eagle vs Shark as well?
Yay for new episodes!
I wonder if they've already made them or if they're making them now, while Jemaine's on a break from filming MIB...?
I wonder this too. It's certainly the kind of acting he can still manage whilst maintaining 'the beard'.
