''Timothy Goes To School'' is a children's animated series that ran from 2000 to 2001. Produced by {{Nelvana}}, 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 2006. 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.

Added DiffLines:

* CityWithNoName: The town where the series is set wasn't ever identified with a name.


Added DiffLines:

* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Where The Heck is Hilltop School?]]: No clue. Given the show's focus and somewhat short run, it's somewhat understandable that the location of the school and the characters' homes wouldn't be identified.

* NotListeningToMeAreYou: In "The Taketombo," the Franks are sad and muted at dinner because having broken Yoko's taketombo. When Big Frank tries to get them to guess what they're having for dinner and they don't really respond, he comments that it's "stewed brontosaurus with Brussels sprouts on the side." This is met with a sort of general "that's nice" from both of them.
