Episodes include:

  • "The Big Chase" - When Timmy drives off on The Farmer's brand new quad bike, Shaun, Bitzer and the flock have to give chase by any means available! Very soon half the animals on the farm have joined in the chase. Can the sheep rescue Timmy and return the quad bike before The Farmer finds out?

  • "Bitzer From the Black Lagoon" - Bitzer falls into a muddy pond while trying to retrieve his ball. When Shaun sees a big, blobby, shambling "thing" squelching across the field, he's convinced they are being attacked by a swamp monster!

  • "Zebra Ducks of the Serengeti" - After getting covered in soot, two hapless ducks are mistaken for a pair of rare African Zebra Ducks. Seeing a way to make money, The Farmer transforms Shaun's field into an exotic duck sanctuary, which he gleefully opens to the public. Shaun doesn't appreciate losing his field and sets about exposing the fraud.

  • "Bitzer's Basic Training" - Bitzer thinks The Farmer is planning to replace him, so Shaun helps to get his friend into shape. Unfortunately, Bitzer goes completely over the top with his training regime and starts running the farm with military precision, driving everyone crazy.

  • "The Magpie" - A magpie has nested in the big tree and is causing chaos by stealing everything around the farm. The magpie's nest soon begins to fill up with loot and Shaun has to come up with a brilliant plan to outwit the burgling bird.

  • "The Boat" - The Farmer gets Bitzer to help him renovate an old boat, but as soon as his back is turned, the sheep and pigs turn the refurbishment into a swashbuckling game of pirates.

  • "Hide & Squeak" - A cute mouse appears in the farmhouse and terrorizes The Farmer. Pidsley the cat is ordered to dispose of the rodent. When the mouse takes refuge in Shaun's fleece, the flock persuades him to protect their new friend from the pitiless cat.
