[[SpinOff Spinning off]] from AardmanAnimations' ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep'', ''Timmy Time'' follows that show's EnsembleDarkhorse as he heads to an all-animal preschool run by a pink heron named Harriet and a purple owl named Osbourne. There he meets Yabba the Duckling, Paxton the Piglet, Mittens the Kitten, Ruffy the Dog, Apricot the Hedgehog, Stripey the Badger Cub, Kid the Goat, Otus the Owlet, Finlay the Fox Cub and Bumpy the Caterpillar, and [[AnAesop learns various lessons]] about getting along with others.

The series started in April 2009. If you live in the show's home of the United Kingdom, you can find ''Timmy Time'' on [=CBeebies=]. If you're in the United States, the home for the program is [[DisneyChannel Disney Junior]] (formerly Playhouse Disney), and Canadian viewers can see the show on TreehouseTV. Australian viewers can watch it on not only one, but TWO channels, [[TheABC ABC4 (ABC 4 Kids or 4 Kids ABC, etc)]] and Disney Junior. No, really.

This series provides examples of:

* AnimalStereotypes
* AnthropomorphicShift: Timmy (and his mother in the credits) are much more anthropomorphic than in ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep'' (where, again, the sheep were more anthropomorphic than they were in ''WesternAnimation/ACloseShave''). They also live in a world where animals go to preschool, which doesn't entirely fit with the ''Shaun the Sheep'' setting, where the sheep are basically treated like sheep.
* [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!]]
* AttentionWhore: Often an episode's conflict is set off by Timmy wanting to hog attention, only to learn his lesson. To be fair, his need for attention is balanced out by wanting to help his friends.
* CunningLikeAFox: Finlay, who is more of a {{Keet}} than a {{Trickster}}.
* EscalatingWar: Non-violent variation in "Timmy the Train": Timmy and Mittens both want to lead their friends as pretend trains, and take advantage of the others' [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny attraction to shiny objects]] by making their costumes increasingly complex.
* [[CuteKitten Everything's Cuter With Kittens]]: Mittens
* [[EverythingIsMessierWithPigs Everything's Messier With Pigs]]: Paxton
* ExpressiveEars: Timmy and some of the other characters
* [[PreciousPuppies Everything's Precious With Puppies]]: Ruffy
* HalloweenEpisode: "Timmy Gets Spooked"
* TheOwlKnowingOne: Osbourne is the more patient of the teachers. His son Otus also tries to follow his example whenever possible, mimicking his actions.
* PokemonSpeak: Most characters make their respective animal noises, but since most kids don't know what sound badgers make[[note]]For those curious, it's "churr", "chitter", "growl", and "kecker"[[/note]], Stripey just says "[[WebAnimation/WeeblAndBob Badger, badger, badger]]".
* ShrinkingViolet: Apricot, who responds to anything frightening by rolling up into a ball.
* SpinOff: This show is a double example: it was spun off from ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep'', itself a spin off of ''Franchise/WallaceAndGromit''.
* TheSpeechless: As on ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep'', all the animals make their respective noises rather than speaking like humans.
* SleepyHead: Stripey is generally in a dozy state, though, to be fair, this is because badgers are nocturnal.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Harriet [[PinkGirlBlueBoy is pink]] and wears a pearl necklace.
