Tickety Toc is a CGI animated childrens' show following the adventures of Tommy and Tallulah, two kids who live in the world that exists behind the clock in an old shop. Every hour they must make it back to the clock for 'Chime Time' so they can take their place as the drummer boy and trumpeter of the clock's platform, or else, as the theme song says, "the clock will never chime".
Tickety-tockety tropes include:
- Alliterative Title: Tickety Toc repeats the letter "T".
- Edutainment Show
- Every Episode Ending: Every episode ends with Tommy and Tallulah making it to Chime Time and taking part in the proceedings.
- Expository Theme Tune: "In a very special shop, there's a very special clock..."
- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: The series uses the pattern of "_____ Time" to reference the characters living in a clock.
- The Kiddie Ride: There's apparently one for Pufferty, the dog-train hybrid who carries Tommy and Tallulah to Chime Time.
- Living Toys: Naturally, given all of the characters live inside a clock, they're all toys in some form.
- Sentient Vehicle: Pufferty, who is a hybrid dog-train.
- Theme Tune Roll Call: For Tommy and Tallulah.
