This was the Incredible, Amazing, Sensational One That Started It All
29 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I would see this as an After School Special, and it was a treat. No doubt the first appearance of Timer, the little yellow man who would dominate seventies Saturday morning with his hankerin' for a hunk'a cheese ideas. What an absolute marvel this was for me.

With the help of Timer, the children, Peter and Missy, would venture through their uncle's body; their uncle, who smoked cigars, got upset working on the kitchen sink and ate and drank too much while he watched his football game.

With each emotional turmoil, the kids would endure amusing, fascinating animated adventures within his body. Making the effect so much better was the uncle and outside of his body was real, but within it was cartoons. Talk about a child's delight.

But hands down, oh definitely, it was the singing. Those wonderful, wonderful songs. And after this incredible, remarkable adventure, the children must say good bye to their new friend Timer, and we were treated to a touching rendition of Timer's arrival song "Follow Me" and Missy's lonely song, intertwined together.

Where do you go after such a grand finale, you ask? Where else but the children, now real life again, running to their poor uncle and telling him what all they went through; journeying through is body, his blood pressure, his anger and so on. And bless his Archie Bunker heart, the poor man just listened to them as best he could and never doubted a word they said.

This was a fantastic cartoon story for kids, and yes, there was a sequel, fully animated with no real life parts, entitled "A Trip through Little Red's Head". In that one, Len Weinrib would do the voice of Timer.

Follow me, follow me!
