''Timothy Goes To School'' is a childrens' animated program that ran from 2000 to 2004. A {{Nelvana}} show, it follows the day-to-day life of Timothy, a 5-year-old raccoon who attends Kindergarten, and the rest of his classmates. Once seen on Creator/PBSKids Bookworm Bunch, it later aired on Discovery Kids until sometime before it was replaced by Creator/TheHub. Most if not all installments of the series are available on DVD. Some were U.S. releases, others were in Canada, which makes them region 1, but potentially challenging to find. The series was later added to {{Qubo}} in the United States.

This is also the first AnimatedAdaptation by {{Creator/Nelvana}} based on Rosemary Well's characters with the second being WesternAnimation/MaxAndRuby which came out two years later in 2002.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: While Timothy's personality hasn't changed that much. He was seen crying a few times in the original book version mainly in the 1981 version. He even wished something bad would happened with Claude.
** Nora was mischievous in the books (Mainly in Noisy Nora) but is more of a BrattyHalfPint in the show.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the series some of Wells characters act alot more nicer than there were in the books that they appeared in.
** Charles's parents (Mainly his father) are alot more nicer than they were in the original book version "Shy Charles" [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_nl7l95uje51s8t8db.jpg where his father starts harshly calling him out on his shyness during a game of Football causing Charles to cry.]]
** Claude actually becomes friends with Timothy later in the series while in the original book version (Especially the 1981 version) never becomes friends with Timothy and continues not liking him.
* AdaptationExpansion: In the first episode which adapts the original "Timothy Goes To School" book. While not that much changes were made the most notable is the ending. The original ending (At least in the 1981 version) has Violet and Timothy becoming friends and the last page shows Claude and Grace The Bunny laughing at them but both end up ignoring them. The ending in this version shows Timothy and Yoko playing tag after Yoko tells Timothy about Claude's behavior after Timothy gets pushed by Claude since he was trying to catch the football to protect Yoko from getting hit.
** While not that much changed in the episode "Yoko", the opening in the episode shows Yoko getting ready for school showing her putting on her dress,waking up, and looking out the windows. She also forgets her lunch made by her mother when she is about to get on the bus. The original 1998 opening shows Yoko's mother asking about what she wants for lunch for school and shows her mother making the sushi for her daughter.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Charle's father has brown colored fur while he was grey in the original Shy Charles book.
** Nora is an odd example, while she is brown in the original books and in the show. She is sometimes depicated with grey fur instead of brown.
*** On the topic of Nora and Charles fur color in the show and books. In some of the Yoko & Friends and a few Timothy books. There ears would sometimes be completely pink or mostly colored grey.
* [[AllThereInTheManual All There In The Books]]: Yoko's mother would sometimes bring up the other family members who are still living in Japan along with mentioning her daughters early memories of living in Japan as a toddler. While we do see a glimpse of Yoko's grandfather in the episode "The Takatombo". We never actually see the other family members of Yoko in the show or even see the rest of Japan in general. In 2001, Wells made a book called "Yoko's Paper Cranes" where you can actually see Yoko as a very young kitten still living with her grandma and grandpa along with seeing cranes. We also see Yoko and her grandmother Obaasan feeding cranes,having tea, and her grandfather Ojisaan showing her how to make paper cranes. This is also the only time Yoko's grandmother and grandfather is actually seen until there reappearance 10 years later in the 2011 book "Yoko's Show-And-Tell" where her grandparents are visiting Yoko's home for Girls Day.
** While most fans will remember Fritz bringing up The Mess Fairy, his imagination of it [[http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51DYKNXWR8L.jpg is actually seen]] in the original 1991 book version [[SeldomSeenSpecies as a pig.]] The book also explains how Fritz came up with the mess fairy concept in the first place.
* AscendedExtra: Some of the characters that were in "Yoko & Friends" and the Yoko series has gotten their own set of episodes compared to their roles in some of the books.
** While Lilly hasn't been seen the most in some of the books. She has around 4 or 5 episodes where she's the main character of the episode or a secondary character. The most notable would be "Don't Lost It Lilly" and "Lifesaver Lilly" both dealing with her forgetfulness problem. "Lifesaver Lilly" is the best example, which takes that issue more seriously unlike "Don't Lost It Lilly" since she really wants to take care of the school's class pet but some of the students think she wouldn't do well as a pet owner despite the fact that Lilly herself owns a pet goldfish named Treasure. She even talks to herself alone on her bed about admitting that she's too forgetful to take care of the class pet.
** Grace also shown up more often than in the books similar to Claude. Due to her being a ballet dancer and two episodes shown her in ballet class with Doris and Yoko. One of Grace's more notable appearances in the books is the Yoko & Friends book "The Secret Birthday" and "Timothy's Tales From Hilltop School
* AdultFear: In "Shy Charles" where Timothy gets locked behind a door. He starts calling out for help with only Charles to notify the entire school by ringing the bell when he hears his voice. It's currently recess and the other students and Miss Jenkins are outside and the Janitor walks off. Now imagine that happening to your child at a store or school and nobody is around except you left all alone for a very long time.
* AdaptedOut: Hazel was one of the students in the "Yoko & Series" but she doesn't appear in the show at all. Nora's sister is also absent even though she was in the original Noisy Nora book.
** Violet (Timothy's original first friend) from the 1981 version of Timothy Goes To School is absent in the show and Yoko & Friends series due to Yoko replacing her as Timothy's best friend since her debut in 1998.
* AbsenteeActor: Lilly is curiously absent in "The Treefort and the Sandcastle." In this story, the boys split into one club in a treefort, while the girls take over the sandbox and build a sandcastle, but Lilly is not part of the group of girls, nor is she even mentioned, despite the events of the story taking place over at least two days.
** It also happens in "Paint by Numbers" in which Fritz doesn't appear at all, nor is he mentioned either but he appears in the episode afterward.
* AesopAmnesia: Generally averted. When the kids learned a lesson on the show, it tended to stick. For example, in "Fritz in the Mess Fairy," Fritz realized that there was no mess fairy and he needed to clean up after himself. Him being messy was never shown as an issue again in the series, despite the story's HereWeGoAgain ending with Fritz having made another mess with the cleaning supplies in the process of cleaning Timothy's seashells. In "Small Change," Nora learns to accept and even like change and she is never shown having an issue with it again. And if Lilly still sometimes forgets things, it can be [[JustifiedTrope forgiven]], as it's difficult for her, and she does try very hard, sometimes succeeding.

** The 1981 book "Timothy Goes To School" takes this further. In it Claude makes fun of what Timothy wears on the first few days of school, like in the series, but to the point that Timothy cries and wants bad things to happen to him. Yoko and many of the other kids also aren't at the school (Timothy makes friends with a bunny named Violet at the end of the story, though), and Mrs. Jenkins is unnamed (in the original version).

* AnachronicOrder: The show jumps from one season to another almost at random, but at least can be said that it's not [[ItsAlwaysSpring always spring]]. A special note, though, goes to the fact that "The Big Snowfall," which featured Lilly having her first snow day was aired after "Lifesaver Lilly," in which Lilly rescued Goldie from the cold school building with no power after school was canceled due to a big snowfall.
* AsideGlance: In the end of the episode "Frankless Frank" Timothy looks at the audience and says "Here We Go Again" when one of the Franks get sick after the other is now better.
** In the end of the episode "Shy Charles", Charles look at the audience after he received a medal after rescuing Timothy from getting locked behind a door.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: In "Scary Monsters," when Nora is afraid of dinosaurs because she thinks they're big and scary monsters, Timothy shows her a fossil of ''Megazostrodon'' at the museum, which, while having a big-sounding name is actually very small. It was a nice lesson, but ''Megazostrodon'' wasn't actually a type of dinosaur and basically resembled a modern-day shrew. However, given that the characters are children, this can be forgiven; also Nora was generalizing "dinosaur" herself so if Timothy (and Yoko, who found the creature in question in a book) knew she was wrong, he was using her own logic to prove her wrong.
* BirdsOfAFeather: Timothy & Yoko, Charles & Lilly, and Claude & Grace tend to hang around each other a lot.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In the first episode Timothy is getting ready for his first day of school. When he goes on the bus for the first time, he sees a female cat who kindly says "Hello" to him while the others are mostly quiet. This character is Yoko who would later become Timothy's best friend and is very friendly. In the same scene, before Timothy sees Yoko, he sees Doris who is viewed by Timothy to be quite annoying and loudmouthed. In the same episode, when the class introduced themselves, Charles said his name before quickly sitting down in silence, due to his shyness. Lilly was also shown, having to think about her own name for a moment before she responded.

* FurryReminder: These are pretty rare, the cast generally behaves like humans. Frank and Frank, who are anthropomorphic dogs, are the only characters where this is treated a bit more loosely. They tend to be rather messy in eating their food, and in "Get Well, Soon," they try to drink water directly out of the faucet at school. When Mrs. Appleberry tells them not to, they tell her that "[[BlatantLies Mrs. Jenkins lets us do it]]", only for her to pull out a letter from Mrs. Jenkins-- "Dear Frank and Frank, Please listen to Mrs. Appleberry and no drinking from the faucet. Signed, Mrs. Jenkins."

** Yoko loves sushi; in the original 1998 version of "Yoko", one of the foods contained inside her sushi is tuna which cats really love eating.
** In the episode where the Franks have a sleepover with Timothy. There is a scene before all of them go to bed where Timothy is seen brushing his teeth. He later makes a growling noise pretending he's a monster with foam from his toothpaste in his mouth. While this is PlayedForLaughs, it's also a reminder that raccoon's also carry rabies.

* SuddenlyVoiced: Charles never talked in the original Shy Charles story, and some of the Yoko and Friends books. He's more vocal in the show compared to his debut appearance.

* TheArtifact: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/timothy_school.jpg The logo for the animated series features Timothy carrying a book in his hand without a backpack]]. In the show, Timothy is actually seen wearing a backpack along with the other students. The logo could also be a reference to the original 1981 version of "Timothy Goes To School" where Timothy is seen carrying a book and isn't seen wearing a backpack. However since the series was created in 2000, at this point in time this hasn't been in use in school since the mid 70's and early 80's when backpacks were easier for children to carry instead of a pile of books.

** Lilly's voice in "Lifesaver Lilly" when she gets very upset or depressed sounds more monotone and serious. Most notable in the scene where she admits she's too forgetful to take care of their class pet. Her voice also starts cracking when she cries in that episode.

* TwentyMinutesIntoThePast/RetroUniverse: The show ran from 2000 - 2001 and seems to take place in that time, but the characters are dressed in clothes that would come straight out of something from the 1950s and 1960s.
