Sheep in the Big City

Show Summary

Welcome to the Sheep in the Big City guide at

Sheep in the Big City is Cartoon Network's ninth original animated series. The show is a c livestock-out-of-water story about a sheep named Sheep who runs away from the farm and hides out in the big city to escape the Top Secret Military Organization on his tail. Sheep faces problems like finding a nice apartment, balancing work and social life, and avoiding a rich socialite who pummels him with a stainless-steel wig.


SHEEP- Just your average sheep trying to make an honest living in The Big City while avoiding being captured by the secret military organization for a sheep powered ray gun. And finding ways to see his beloved Swanky the poodle while avoiding the steel pounding of Lady Richington's Steel wig.

General Specific- The leader of the Secret Military Organization. He is your average General assigned to capturing sheep to power the sheep powered ray gun. Although he is usually outsmarted by sheep he never gets discouraged.

Private Public- Private Public is the right hand man at the SMO. Even though he is lightyears smarter then General Specific he is happy to take the orders rather than give them.

Angry Scientist- The Brains behind the SMO but is usually to busy correcting General Specific for calling him a Mad Scientist to be of much help and what he lacks in patience he makes up for in the hump on his back.

Narator- The unseen narrator...well sorta. He is the introducer and is usually upset at the writing of the episode but has an over appreciation for the beloved sheep.

  • U WOT M8

    Are you kidding me? This show is awesome! Forget the haters! They just hate the show because they're big stinky doo doo heads!
  • Funny, Imaginative, Intresting Plots. WHY WAS IT CANCELED?

    This was one of the funniest cartoons i've ever seen. The Oxymoron commercials were hilarious. Nowadays, Cartoon Network's shows a severe decline in quality (espically, that Uncle Grandpa). Sheep in the Big City had a lot of imagination (like the concept of Clearance Day), Also had a good sense of humor, such as the idea of "Smart Bombs" as bombs that go to the library. Cartoon Network should really reboot this show or at least air reruns of it.

  • I nearly forgot that this show existed

    A unique and original plot, hilarious jokes, good like-able characters. It's unfortunate how obscure this show is now.
  • Good show.

    Good show. Too bad it didn't last long.
  • Well there is the sheep, and the not-so-secret military organisation hot on his tail, lame brain General Specifiks and a weird little girl who treats sheep like a dog... All this I get, but a ranting Swede? Huh? Still can't figure that out...moreless

    The story about a sheep on the run is quite original i must say. But there are some points where it doesn't really make sense, like what is the ranting Swede?

    But all in all, I think it is a fairly decent and funny cartoon to watch, when you have nothing better on.
