Timmy Time is my favourite toddlers show ever and I only started watching it when I was 18. to triumph over my actual childhood favourites is quite a feat but Timmy truly does deserve it.
Firstly Timmy himself is almost offensively adorable in whatever he is doing. My personal favourite is his shocked face. The array of characters that he goes to nursery with are truly lifelike in their different personalities; you have the laid back badger, annoying, anal Mittens the cat and the seemingly schizophrenic Otis the owl with his weird puppet friend.
Secondly and more importantly, the story lines are really beautiful and simple in a parable-like way. Best examples of this would be episodes like Timmy's Tractor or Timmy Wants to Win. It teaches kids, without being preachy, that if you show kindness to others that's what you'll get in return and that friendship is more important winning. Some of the episodes are more whimsical but you will never be bored with the endless supply of hilarious sounds and facial expressions these creatures can make. The stop motion is PERFECTION as is everything Aardman seems to touch.
You'll enjoy it whatever age you are because it is just damn good storytelling.
It also has a BLOODY BRILLIANT theme tune. Now go watch it.
