Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Timmy Time and Rex the Runt have been added to Amazon Prime Instant Video as part of an agreement between Amazon and Aardman Animations. Amazon will be the exclusive subscription streaming service for all Aardvark Animations works.
New installments of Shaun the Sheep and Timmy time will continue to be added to Instant Video, including seasons 3 and 4 of Shaun the Sheep, Shaun the Sheep: Championsheeps, and two new Timmy Time specials.
Aardman’s most recognizable characters, Wallace & Gromit, are British pop culture icons.

A Shaun the Sheep feature film is scheduled for theatrical release in spring 2015.
“Our customers love great kids’ shows and we are proud to be the exclusive subscription streaming home for these popular Aardman shows,” said Brad Beale, Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition for Amazon. “Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and the other Aardman shows have a wide-reaching fan base, and we know Prime members will enjoy watching these shows at no extra charge as part of their Prime membership.”
“Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Timmy Time and Rex the Runt continue to gain new fans, and we’re thrilled to offer them to viewers exclusively on Prime Instant Video,” said Robin Gladman, Digital Content & Partner Manager at Aardman Animations. “As we get ready to release our Shaun the Sheep feature film next year, we know that Prime members will be eager to catch up on all the past adventures of their favorite animated characters.”
