The Kite is the eleventh episode of Series 1.
A kite shows up in the sheep's field, but gets stuck in a tree. Shaun and the flock work to get it down.
PlotEditThe episode starts when Shaun and the flock are eating grass and Bitzer looks at his clipboard. A kite appears in Mossy Bottom Farm. Shaun spots the kite. It is blowing along with the wind. The flock starts running away from it (everyone except Shaun, who chases it) when it hits Bitzer and knocks him over. Shaun eventually catches it but ends up flying along with it until it gets caught in a tree. Shaun then falls into the grass. After that, he thinks about using a trampoline to get it, so he gets an old bed mattress out of the junk pile and starts using it as a trampoline. Eventually all the sheep except Shirley (who is trying to eat the mattress) were jumping and trying to reach to the kite. Shaun draws a tree on a blackboard with the kite hanging from it and a staircase leading up to it. The flock makes the stairs and Shaun holds the stick to try and get the kite down. Meanwhile, Bitzer is doing a drumroll. One sheep tries to run away when a bee flew past her and she got scared. Shaun jumps down from the tree and falls into the grass again. Timmy sits and watches a ladybug crawl through the grass but Shaun picks him up and uses him to clean the blackboard. Then Shaun puts Timmy down on top of the ladybug and he sneezes. Shaun draws a sheep who flew into the tree. The flock pulls another tree down so Shaun can get on. Shirley bites the rope holding the tree back and Shaun flies into the air, misses the kite, and flies through the tree, and falls down into the pigsty. The kite falls out of the tree onto the ground, right in front of Shirley, who eats the kite. The flock spot a bunch of balloons flying around, this time Shaun doesn't try to get them down. Instead, he and Bitzer have a cup of tea. The episode ends with the flock chasing the balloons.
