There Really Is a Timmy
17 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Timmy can't talk or hear. His dad dropped him on his head when he was a baby. However, he has developed an ability to communicate with animals, even snakes. His dad is quite hostile because a truant officer and a teacher from the local school district want to know why the kid isn't in school. They also offer him an opportunity to get special help and to be checked out for his affliction. They figure if they can get his hearing back he can be taught to speak. He seems to have a "seventh" sense, and when confronted by hostility, he runs into the woods, even if the threat is a long way off. Most of the episode involves the negotiations among the hearing specialist, the teacher, the truant officer, and the father. Meanwhile, Timmy is off cavorting with his friendly raven, a deer, and anything else out there. The final scene is absolutely ludicrous. See for yourself.
