                             TIMMY'S CHRISTMAS SURPRISE
                             2011 / 30mins

    "He's the little lamb with a lot to learn..."                 

    Timmy is a frisky young lamb who attends a daily Nursery in a big bright barn
    building, and every day is action-packed and full of surprises as he and his
    animal pals learn about the wide world around them. Their grown-up teachers,
    Harriet Heron and Osbourne Owl guide them through the ups and downs
    of life and learning, with lots of fun, frolics, tears and tantrums on the way.

    It's a simple premise, then, for Aardman Animation's first ever preschool
    production. But the series is triumphant in its execution. "Timmy Time" is
    set in a colourful nursery landscape, and the animals communicate via an
    exchange of brilliant bleats and oinks and quacks. They laugh and cajole,
    they sparr and compete, quibble and quarrel - just like real kids. But what
    ever happens, they're always friends again, come the end of the day.
    There's some super character work on display here - each of the youngsters
    has their own particular affectation or foible - and Timmy's big grinning
    bleat is just super. Once you throw in Mike Stobbie's bouncy singalong
    theme tune, well, you have a completely perfect preschool toon...


    "Timmy Time" is actually a spin-off from a spin-off. Young Timmy first stole
    the show as a secondary character in Aardman's multi-award winning series
    "Shaun the Sheep", which in turn was derived from Shaun's co-starring role
    in the Academy Award winning Wallace & Gromit film A Close Shave.

» The series was created and produced by Jackie Cockle (Bob the Builder,
        Pingu, Cockleshell Bay, Oakie Doke, Brambly Hedge, and many more...)
» Timmy and his pals take a "Walking Bus" to school, during the credits.
        They form a line, with Osbourne Owl up front and Harriet Heron minding
        their rear, and march off in time to the show's theme tune....
