TV Series Review

You might say that Wanda’s a sheep that’s pulled the wool from her eyes.

When Wolf comes around looking for a nice, tasty bit of mutton, most of the sheep simply accept their fate. Not so with Wanda. She’s mastered the ancient art of hoof-to-paw combat—karate.

Of course, being the only sheep seasoned in all things martial arts, Wanda comes off a bit … intense, always screaming and slashing at whatever threat comes to the field (usually instigated by Wolf, of course). But she’s got a good track record for keeping the flock alive, and she’s bound to inspire a few others to follow in her footsteps—including Trico, a fellow sheep whose approach to the Big Bad Wolf is a bit more sophisticated than simply hack-and-slash.

And that’s really all there is to say about Karate Sheep. The three main characters—Wanda, Trico and Wolf—don’t say any words. Each episode puts the trio into slapstick situations that focus on the funny rather than a defined plot. And when there’s a moral, it’s a very small one, like “there’s more than one right way to do something.”

So, does Karate Sheep provide something of substance for your child to learn from? Not really. But it also doesn’t have anything that’ll cause you to bleat out in horror.

Episode Reviews

Mar. 2, 2023 – S1, Ep1: “Wanda’s Apprentice/Top Dog!/Red Card for Wanda”

Wanda teaches a young sheep the art of karate. Trico and Wolf fight for the title of Wanda’s best student. Trico teaches the flock how to play soccer, but Wanda’s intensity ruins the game.

Wolf frequently attempts to eat sheep, stuffing them full into his mouth. However, Wanda uses karate to save them, chopping and slashing at Wolf in various slapstick ways. At one point, a sheep uses a Whoopie cushion.

Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics. He thinks the ending of Lost “wasn’t that bad.”
