Timmy Time is a British stop-motion animated children's comedy series created by the BBC and Aardman Animations. It started broadcasting in the UK on CBeebies on 6 April 2009.[1] The show is a spin off from the Shaun the Sheep animation[1] 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 United Kingdom, the show's most recent run began in September 2011 on CBeebies. In Australia, season one commenced in May 2009 on ABC1 and season three started in May 2011 on ABC 4 Kids.[2][3]

Premise and format[edit]

In this series, Timmy and his friends[4] have to learn to share, make friends and accept their mistakes.[5] 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".[1]

The show is made up of ten-minute episodes, which do not feature any dialogue, much like Shaun the Sheep.[1]

A filming of one episode was featured on the Discovery Channel's How It's Made.

21Timmy's Twin23 SeptemberStripey plays at dressing up and by accident ends up looking just like Timmy, with a white woolly waistcoat on and floppy black socks on his ears. Timmy is delighted to have a twin, Stripey is too. Timmy makes Stripey a lamb's tail to wiggle and a twin teddy to complete the look. But although he looks like Timmy, Stripey isn't much good at being a Timmy twin: he can't baa, his tail wiggling leaves a lot to be desired and he's terrible at football. During a game of football, Timmy gets impatient when Stripey keeps missing the ball so he passes it to his other friends instead of to Stripey. Stripey feels left out and trundles off sadly, taking off his costume bit by bit as he goes. Timmy realises his friend is upset and has an idea: he dresses up as Stripey much to the badger's delight and makes Stripey noises with a horn.
22Timmy the Hero26 SeptemberTimmy's imagination is sparked when he reads a superhero comic. Meet Super Timmy! Timmy is desperate to save the day but his efforts aren't always appreciated. He 'saves' Mittens dolly from the seesaw, but Mittens was just playing; he 'helps' Otus with the gardening but accidentally soaks him with a hose pipe in the process; and he heroically tries to stop Yabba getting muddy, when that's exactly what Yabba wanted to do. Finally, Super Hero Timmy gets the chance to save the day when his little pal Bumpy is nearly splattered by paint. Hooray for Super Timmy!
23Fix it Timmy27 SeptemberHarriet is doing odd jobs round the nursery and Timmy is eager to help out. He finds a yellow beret (the closest thing he can find to Harriet's yellow hard helmet) and a toy tool belt and begins his round of odd jobs. Unfortunately his attempts at mending his friends' toys result in disaster: a wheel falls off Mittens' hobby horse, Ruffy's robot breaks and Ruffy's remote control car just grinds to a halt. Finally Harriet takes matters into her expert hands, and together her and Timmy make amends. Timmy learns how to mend things the right way with the right tools, and Harriet rewards him with a proper yellow hard hat of his own.
24Timmy and the Kite28 SeptemberTimmy and the class are thrilled to bits that their nursery activity is building and flying your very own kite. The friends are divided into pairs and a very enthusiastic if impatient Timmy is paired up with Otus, who painstakingly builds the kite with Timmy's 'help'. Timmy's excitement and impatience to fly the kite causes chaos damaging the kite at every stage until finally it lands on his head and rips. Timmy is mortified and makes up for wrecking Otus's hard work by patiently building another Kite and giving Otus an extra special surprise.
25Timmy's Castle29 SeptemberAfter a fun playtime activity of making a model castle, Timmy's imagination is all fired up. He wants to play at being Timmy the Knight, encountering dragons and saving Damsels in Distress. Along with Finlay, he dresses up as a knight and together they clippety-clop around the nursery on their trusty steeds - a customised broom and a hobby horse - and carry out several chivalrous deeds. The play acting bug takes over the whole nursery when together the pals all make a wonderful castle of their own out of big cardboard boxes and they all dress up. Timmy and Finlay's chivalrous spirit is put to the test when the friends hear what sounds like a real dragon.
26Timmy's Scrapbook30 SeptemberAll the nursery pals are putting together scrapbooks of their most precious childhood memories: their first tuft of wool, photos of them as babies. Timmy ends up with one blank page left in his book and he's on a mission to find something perfect to put in there. All his attempts fail: the jam sandwich splodges and makes a mess, his self-portrait sculpture gets squished and the football just won't fit in no matter how hard he tries to shut the book. Finally, the scrapbook is in tatters and the disappointed Timmy gives up. His friends cheer him up by putting together a new scrapbook. And Timmy repays them by having the idea for a group photo they can all put in their scrapbooks.

It’s not until home time they realise they are snowed in and will have to stay at the nursery. But will Santa know where to find Timmy and his friends if they are not at home in bed?
