YMMV: Timothy Goes to School

  • Awesome Music: The "Welcome Song" ("Gather 'round and sit right down, doesn't matter who you're next to...) and the class concert performance.
  • Ear Worm: The shows theme song, the "Welcome Song", the "Smack Time" somg, and the class concert performance
  • Toy Ship: Timothy x Yoko and Charles x Lily are practically canon. Claude x Grace could also be seen as this.
  • Viewer Species Confusion: Fritz. Is he a skunk? A badger? Nobody seems to be sure. Even looking at official reviews for the original Rosemary Wells book that he appears in, Fritz and the Mess Fairy doesn't shed any light on the subject. Publisher's Weekly calls him a "skunk," Kirkus Reviews describes him as a "badger." Presumably, this applies to Miss Appleberry (the occasionally-seen student teacher) by extension, as she appears to be the exact same species as Fritz.
  • The Woobie: The show loves doing this to Yoko. She has been teased about what she brings for lunch in "Yoko", had the Franks break her taketomobo in "The Taketombo" (they later fix it), and for her Japanese family figures being stolen in "Lost and Found" (they're later returned, though it's not revealed who did it).
    • Any time Timothy gets very sad. He really becomes this in "Timothy Goes to School" and "Fritz on the Move."
    • Grace when ever she gets very upset when something bad or something very unexpected happens to her. She becomes this in "The Talent Show" when she sprains her ankle and can't be in the show.
    • Juanita is this in the first two episodes she appears in. She constantly doesn't want her mother to leave during her first day in school. She is also very lonely and very shy and tries to make a new friend.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel: A sweet and innocent little show about going to school and learning life lessons in friendship and kindness.
