Storyline

Timmy arrives in South Park as a new student. Although he is obviously intellectually disabled and is only capable of saying his name, none of the teachers recognize this fact and instead diagnose him as having ADD and give him Ritalin. As part of Timmy's treatment, he no longer has to do homework, so naturally all the other kids demand to be diagnosed with ADD and given Ritalin, too. Meanwhile, Timmy ends up creating a local controversy when he becomes front man for a garage rock band. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The question that Timmy fails to answer and leads to his diagnosis of ADD is: "what was the color of Gatsby's car". This is not as capricious as it first appears, as the color of Gatsby's car (yellow) is actually fairly important to the plot of "The Great Gatsby". See more »

One of the last REAL classics...
18 March 2007 | by (www.upperception.com) – See all my reviews

If you look at the script you will notice one thing to begin with: perfect cinematography.

Despite the fact, that Timmy is handicapped and therefor temporarily rose to be a hit character, the episode just reflects the talent that Matt Stone and Trey Parker have in their profession.

Although moral is an issue that South Park really looks at with a critical eye, "Timmy 2000" proves to be not just entertaining but also "point proving": Laughing at something odd doesn't mean that people don't care about it! Timmy may be handicapped and amusing, but at the same point the creators prove that he has heart and moral, but furthermore, character! These (if only little) shifts of classical story telling make a very enjoyable episode that will definitely be one of "South Park"'s best! And it also doesn't surprise me at all that the character "Timmy" became a cult from this point on!
