Primetime Show Reviews
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
from September 13, 2010 on Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney,
following a special
sneak preview on the evening of September 7th. Timmy Time is
animated television project for the preschool audience, and the stop-
motion series has
already enjoyed great success in its first season of broadcast
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
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
and slapstick, bleats, quacks, oinks and the like.
While being entertained by Timmy´s fun and fleecy antics, the young
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.
Director Jackie Cockle (BAFTA winner, producer on Bob the Builder,
director on The
Wind in The Willows, among other television credits) believes that
easily identify with Timmy as he learns universal lessons about
himself, his friends and
the world around him."
