Timmy!

"Timmy Time" by Suzanne
weekday mornings at 7/6c on Playhouse Disney

Timmy Time is a great kids' show. It's for young children. It's non-verbal. The show is about Timmy, a little sheep that doesn't obey the rules and gets in trouble all the time. He lives in a nursery with other animals.  It is a very cute show, and I think parents will even enjoy watching it with their kids. I watched two episodes and I chuckled often. The animals make lots of cute sounds, but again, there are  no words.  It is all sounds and pantomime. I don't think kids of any age will really notice that, though.

The show is a spin-off of Shaun the Sheep, which is a spin-off from the great series Wallace  & Gromit and done by the same people. You can watch it on the Disney Channel!

TIMMY TIME TO PREMIERE IN NORTH AMERICA ON DISNEY CHANNEL FROM SEPTEMBER 13, 2010

Burbank, CA-Aardman Animations´ Timmy Time is scheduled to air in North America from September 13, 2010 on Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney, following a special sneak preview on the evening of September 7th. Timmy Time is Aardman´s first animated television project for the preschool audience, and the stop- motion series has already enjoyed great success in its first season of broadcast overseas.

Timmy Time follows the adventures of Timmy, a little lamb with a lot to learn as he enters preschool. Fans of Aardman´s hit children´s series Shaun the Sheep will recognize Timmy as the baby lamb on the farm who is frequently drawn into all kinds of chaotic adventures by the mischievous older sheep. Used to having his way by being "the only lamb in the flock," Timmy is now heading to preschool to graze on some important life lessons about playing nicely with others, namely his fellow classmates of the furry, feathered and spiky types.

Episodes portray all the aspects of a preschooler´s day that are familiar to parents- painting, puzzling, making music, building with blocks, napping, snacking and more- through strong but simple storylines that are told without human dialogue, instead using a unique combination of expressive character animation, gesture and reactions, comedy and slapstick, bleats, quacks, oinks and the like.

While being entertained by Timmy´s fun and fleecy antics, the young audience members will benefit by seeing important social skills in action, such as how to help someone in need, how to be good sports, and how to respect others. Creator/Producer/Supervising Director Jackie Cockle (BAFTA winner, producer on Bob the Builder, director on The Wind in The Willows, among other television credits) believes that "preschoolers can easily identify with Timmy as he learns universal lessons about himself, his friends and the world around him."

Timmy fans can look forward to his first DVD release in early 2011 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment, who also distribute the DVD releases of Shaun the Sheep, the second fastest-growing children´s brand on DVD in 2009. Timmy toys will also be available in Spring 2011 from JAKKS Pacific.
