64 zoo lane is a kid show about a girl who goes out side her house at night to play with her zoo friends including a giraffe zebra and more. The show is definitely a show for the whole family to watch.
A little girl lives in a rather strange castle. She shares it with her Mother, Father and maid. Other characters help her realize that just because you are a princess you can't always get what you want.
I love the work of Aardman Studios. When watching Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, Creature Comforts or Shaun the Sheep, you see great animation, a memorable theme tune, wit and charm, likable characters and a format that appeals to both kids and adults. As an 18 year old girl, I love Timmy Time, while I marginally prefer Shaun the Sheep I love it and so do some friends of mine and they're toddlers.
One of the main reasons why Timmy Time appeals to me is that it is so cute and charming. The characters are affectionately adorable, Timmy is every bit as lovable as Shaun was and even without saying a word his facial expressions and gestures speak volumes, and I love Mittens, Stripey and Otis just as much. Like Shaun the Sheep, Timmy Time doesn't have any dialogue and this is a decision that works. The joys when it comes to the humour is in the visual gags and gestures and facial expressions of the characters.
Why do I say that? Well I think the facial expressions work wonders, all of them range from very funny to priceless. And then there are the sight gags which are equally impressive, and the noises the characters make are cute and never annoying. Timmy Time isn't just funny though. The way the stories are structured, the show is quite whimsical as well with lessons that don't preach but effectively get their point across.
The stories are very simple and gentle, but always fast-paced and satisfying with any situations and lessons easy to understand. Another thing I love about Timmy Time is that it doesn't rely on fart jokes, idiotic catchphrases, obscenities, profanity or overly-cartoony violence as part of its entertainment. In fact none of that is here, and a good thing too, I have no problem with any of these elements being used as long as they are incorporated well and are used in good taste which is why some animated shows/movies nowadays don't entirely work. Its entertainment lies in its characters, simplicity, cuteness and charm and also its ability to appeal to anybody.
Not only that, the stop-motion animation is very good. The backgrounds look colourful with a wide array of beautiful colours and all the characters are appealingly modelled from the lead characters to the secondary characters. Also, this show has a truly infectious theme tune, it is never repetitive or dull, instead it is sweet and fun and like Shaun the Sheep and Wallace and Gromit I find myself humming it.
Overall, a great show that comes across to its audience very well. 10/10 Bethany Cox
