I can't find anything on the internet about the reason the show ended. There were jokes in the show itself that it had low ratings, was it axed? Or did Shaun just decide to end it naturally? Is 3 seasons regular in Australian tv?

Shaun's mentioned numerous times that he doesn't want to do the same thing for too long - as far as I know, he ended the show on good terms with the ABC. -PPP
The mandarin is far too compliant in my perfectly ordinary view, what with its skin that folds off the moment you try remove it with our inadequate human fingers. So too the banana, offering at first token resistance then off it comes! The SLUT! But the watermelon - at least that puts up a fight! Before revealing unto you the beauteous harvest of its innards!

Thanks guys, interesting Shaun didn't want to go on. What man can end a program that gave him total creative freedom? I got the sense it was beginning to repeat itself in areas, perhaps he was running out of lines to end the show on. But its such a shame, Season 3 was twice as good as Season 1.
