Timmy Time is an animated pre-school children's comedy series created by WGBH-TV andAardman Animations. It started broadcasting in the UK on CBeebies on 6 April 2009. The show is a spin off from the Shaun the Sheep animation which itself is a spin off from the Aardman series Wallace & Gromit, which introduced the character of Shaun. The first two series ran for 26 episodes. In the UK the show's most recent run began in September 2011 on CBeebies.
In this series, Timmy and his friends have to learn to share, make friends and accept their mistakes. They are supervised by two teachers, Harriet the Heron and Osbourne the Owl. The show is aimed at pre-school aged children which the company described as "a natural step for Aardman". It premiered on Playhouse Disney in the US on September 13, 2010 and continues to air as part of the rebranded Disney Junior block.
The show is made up of ten minute episodes, which do not feature any dialogue, much likeShaun the Sheep", because animals can't talk!
§ Timmy the Lamb is the titular character who enjoys being in the spotlight. He is three years old in sheep years and later turns four years old in the episode Timmy's Birthday.
