A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon SEX/NUDITY 1
– During the end credits, a cartoon man facing away from the camera is shown in full back nudity and he grabs a bucket at his side and holds it in front of him about waist level as three pigs in front of him look at him, startled. A person holds up two cards, each of which contains a nude cartoon of a squarish man or woman, without any physical details, and the person holds a finger over the male’s groin and the female’s chest and groin. A man pulls a clothesline across a stage and it holds a cutout of a UFO, but also a red pair of jockey-style underwear and socks.
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon VIOLENCE/GORE 2
– An alien is a short blue creature with a rabbit-like face and drooping rabbit ears that stand up and glow, four arms, a body shaped like a Christmas tree, and without legs or feet.
► Two people wearing hazmat suits arrest a farmer and his dog. An agent captures a UFO with a dog, a sheep, and a child alien on board and takes it into a secret base that is disguised as a car wash; she uses a crane to lift it to an elevator platform that descends to a dark basement.
► A man holding French fries and his dog hear a humming noise off-screen and we see a UFO descend to Earth and tilt several times with thuds and clunks as it repeatedly hits the ground and settles at an angle; the man follows his dog to the UFO and the outline of a rabbit with drooping ears appears, mumbling non-word noises and scurrying across the screen a couple of times, as the man and dog yelp and run away; a blue arm reaches down and pulls dropped French fries off-screen quickly and we hear chewing. A replicator spits out a dozen pizzas and one goes into a dog’s mouth, and others splat on walls and a control button.
► An alien disappears into a force field that flickers briefly as a type of geodesic dome, a pigeon smacks into it and slides to the ground (it is only stunned and unhurt), a UFO appears as the force field disappears, sheep and the alien, as well as a dog, fly the craft and yelp throughout a journey; the ship crashes and falls apart (no one is hurt) and the alien looks sad.
► A frog startles a pizza delivery person on a scooter and pizzas scatter on the ground; an alien levitates and eats several pieces in this and other scenes that include pizza. An alien opens its mouth wide and burps loudly for several seconds in a couple of scenes. A dog glues its paw to a pole as he is sticking posters to it, loosens its paw, and steps in a bucket of glue, limping. A small robot with a single eye on an arm on top of its body tries to file some glue samples in a cabinet in his torso, but sticks its arm to its face accidentally. A robot is smashed by a large robot, but is unharmed. A robot falls off a flying UFO, but is unhurt. A robot’s eye falls off and it grabs it and puts it back on. In a UFO, a replicator pictures food that looks like string and eyeballs, and an alien says a word that sounds like “bluck-yuk.”
► A large snorting bull is seen inside a UFO and a sheep piloting the craft flies over a china shop and ejects the bull through the shop roof; through a window, we see things breaking, and a man runs out, yelping nonsense syllables. Sheep on a farm participate in several dangerous activities until a dog grunts at them to make them stop and puts up signs depicting each activity in a circle, crossed out with a red slash to mark the activity as prohibited: one time a Frisbee hits the dog in the face (it does no damage), another time the dog is covered by rubber darts, the sheep cook on a BBQ grill in a closed barn and create large clouds of smoke until the dog takes away their grill, a farmer shouts several nonsense syllables in anger. A UFO in space scrapes the side of a space station twice as an astronaut is painting the outside of it and the astronaut waves her arms and shouts nonsense syllables. A moving harvester nearly hits a dog. A large van runs over a pizza scooter, but the driver escapes unharmed.
► An alien and a sheep drive a combine harvester, damage its blades, and accidentally cut a series of crop circles in a wheat field. Newspaper and TV headlines read “UFO sightings.” A farmer and his foreman dog make a flock of sheep wear yellow vests and hard hats and construct wooden buildings and a stage to make a UFO theme park called Farmageddon; we see and hear sheep pounding nails and bolts, climbing a shaky ladder propped in a wheelbarrow, and climbing a tower while hammering, sawing, and making sparks fly with welding.
► An alien levitates several objects to form a mock solar system, including a tennis ball, golf ball, basketball, chickens, pigs, and cauliflower heads. An alien levitates a canoe and a trampoline that both float as she and a sheep play in them. An alien in a market transports a piece of cardboard through a frozen food bin to look like a shark’s fin and it cuts a woman’s beehive hairdo in half; later, cakes fly into the face of a man and onto the top of the woman’s head.
► An alien mind melds with a sheep and later with a dog; in the first case, we see the alien’s memories of its parents, a stuffed toy, and a remote control it accidentally activated to start their ship and fly to Earth; and in the second case there is no image, but the dog says, “Right.” A young girl in a flashback waves to a pair of aliens seen in outline, she draws them on a piece of manila paper, shows her classmates and they laugh at her (she looks sad); the scene cuts to current time when she is an agent that grumbles and always looks serious or angry and she is accompanied by a dozen figures who always wear yellow hazmat suits and head coverings and while marching they accidentally trample her (she is unharmed). A woman exits a robot, looks stunned, and hugs one of the aliens and the alien looks sad and hugs a sheep, joined by other sheep and a dog in a group hug as the first sheep wipes away a tear.
► A man dresses a dog as an alien in a jumpsuit and helmet and the dog scares people wearing hazmat suits causing them to gasp and back away. Visitors to a man’s theme park are angry when they find that expected aliens are just chickens and pigs wearing fake antennae and the crowd grumbles. A theme park draws all the electricity from a nearby town and a man grumbles about it. A sheep and an alien climb a tower to shine a homing signal out into space, and other sheep follow; a huge robot driven by a woman thrashes around and climbs the tower, causing sheep to fall, but none get hurt. Sheep throw large letters from a sign onto a large robot and damage it, a huge UFO with flashing colorful lights appears and lands and the large robot begins to charge, but stops as two tall aliens appear from the ship.
► A UFO speeds to Earth as an alien family on board finds a farmer in the craft and everybody screams; the scene cuts to the farmer driving a motorized outhouse to Earth, he lands, it breaks apart, and he angrily shouts a string of nonsense syllables; his face and hands are dirty but he is not injured. During end credits, a farmer on Earth drives a harvester, but a Frisbee jams its blades, causing it to explode and scare two sheep and a dog that look startled (no one is hurt).
► A sheep holds up a bag marked “Sheep Nuggets,” and a dog later eats nuggets from the bag as several sheep grimace, suggesting the nuggets may be dried dung. An alien crosses its arms across its stomach while hopping up and down and the camera cuts to a washroom door; we hear giggling and a toilet flushing, and the creature and a sheep exit. A person dressed as Dr. Who exits a Porta-Potty at a theme park.
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon LANGUAGE 0
– The film contains no actual dialogue, but mostly burbles, chirps, mumbling, grumbling, many nonsense syllables, and a small alien mimics every sound she hears (e.g. oi-ya, oho, oh-ho-ho, ha ha, tee hee hee, oh-ho-hey, hup hup hup, mmm, uh, and arghhhh). | profanity glossary |
A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon SUBSTANCE USE
– A rooster dips a biscuit into a cup of coffee, and a man and a dog drink from cups of tea. Sheep sit on a high iron rafter and hold cups of tea, a man wearing a hazmat suit holds a tray of cups of tea, and an alien stuffs 100s of candies into its mouth and drinks three 2-liter bottles of soda (it becomes manic, racing around a grocery store, dancing, and knocking things down until afterward when it has a sick-looking expression).
