Shaun, Shaun the Sheep Movie
Sheep are not particularly expressive animals. They eat, they shit, and they get haircuts. Yet, somehow, in the skilled hands of Aardman Animation, the folks behind claymation classics like Wallace And Gromit and Chicken Run, sheep become oddly poignant, capable of wringing laughter and tears from even the most hardened city folk. With his watchful eyes, floppy ears, and tuffs of white cotton, Shaun is cuter than any Minion. Plus, come on: he’s the only character on this list with such a good theme song that it got its own remix. -- Dan Jackson
