KidVid: New Timmy Time - Timmy Finds Treasure
Timmy Finds Treasure is the newest title in the Timmy Time series. The lovable lamb is a pirate captain in pursuit of treasure as he rounds up his friends for adventure that’s highlighted by slapstick humor and a whole barnyard full of characters. The bright animation and appealing characters offer younger children a mix or entertainment and education.
Timmy Time, part of Disney Channel’s Disney Junior line-up, comes from the same people who gave us Wallace and Grommit and Shaun the Sheep. Despite a complete lack of dialogue, the five episodes on Timmy Finds Treasure impart valuable life lessons for two- through five-year-olds and their families.
Timmy is a somewhat spoiled lamb with a knack for finding trouble when it’s not finding him. He’s repeatedly challenged to share, cooperate, be considerate, and take responsibility for his actions. Using simple stories, expressive characters, and a collection of animal sound effects (Timmy goes to Nursery with a cat, dog, pig, skunk, and duck, among others), Timmy Time entertains while it teaches positive social interaction.
Timmy Finds Treasure, available on DVD March 13, 2012, comprises five episodes: “Timmy Finds Treasure,” “Timmy’s Treasure Hunt,” “Timmy’s Tractor,” “Timmy Makes a Splash,” and “Timmy’s Spring Surprise,” as well as bonus features: “Timmy’s Day of the Week Video” and two episodes form Shaun the Sheep (“Spring Lamb” series). Each episode is a day in the life of Timmy and his buddies who find adventure through their naughtiness and nosiness.
