Trivia: Timothy Goes to School

  • Actor Allusion: This isn't the first time Lisa Yamanaka (Yoko) voiced a Japanese character.
  • Channel Hop: The show went from PBS Kids (as part of a Sunday morning block "Bookworm Bunch", which featured an array of Nelvana cartoons based on books), to a weekday morning block, "Ready Set Learn" on TLC and Discovery Family (when they were Discovery Kids)—-however, no new episodes aired, only reruns. Reruns were last seen on Qubo.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Fritz is voiced by a female, as is Claude.
    • Timothy, Charles, Fritz, and Claude are all voiced by females in the french dub.
  • Dub Name Change: In France the show and the original book version of "Timothy Goes To School" is called Timothée va à l'école
    • Timothy is called Timothée in France
    • The series is called 티모시는 학교에갑니다 (timosi neun haggyoe gabnida) in Korean
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Alyson Court, aka Claire Redfield from Resident Evil, is Nora!
  • No Dub for You: Oddly enough the series did air in South Korean complete with the series getting translated in that language. The show still contains the English vocal track.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Some DVD releases are difficult to obtain, but installments can be found online. For a while it wasn't airing on TV. It does now air on Qubo, though that can be hard to get. However episodes of the show can be found on Youtube.
    • The French,Spanish,Malay,and Hungarian are even more difficult to find. Doesn't help that the series hasn't gotten a DVD or VHS release in those countries while France only gotten a couple DVDs which contain a few episodes. So far none of the dubs have been uploaded on Youtube with the English versions available.
  • Missing Episode: Possibly. According to some sources, there appears to be an episode titled "The Butterfly Away", which is one of the first things that appears as an add-on when you start to google the sho's title.
  • Recycled Script: The episode "Mama Don't Go" where it's Juanita's first visit to Hilltop School with her mother after moving is very similar to the Yoko & Friends book of the same name. The only different is that in the original book, it's Yoko's first time at Hilltop School and doesn't want her mother to go while in the show, it's Juanita who does it to her mother.
    • Recursive Canon: Yoko's 1998 debut was supposedly her first day at school as well.
  • Relation Ship Voice Actor: This is the first time Lisa Yamanaka (Yoko) and Alyson Court (Nora) were both voicing characters in the same production. After the show ended, both were in Resident Evil 2 with Nora as Claire Redfield while Yoko was Sherry Birkin.
