Veteran funnyman Mel Brooks has leant his voice to a sheep in a new cartoon series.

The creator of The Producers and Blazing Saddles will voice an American sheep called Wiley who joins a flock of Irish farmyard animals in JAKERS! THE ADVENTURES OF PIGGLEY WINKS.

Brooks says, "It's the most fun I've had in years. I get to play a sheep with a baa-a-ad attitude, and I get to impress my five-year-old granddaughter."
