Disney Channel Shepherds Aardman’s ‘Timmy’

Timmy
Disney Channel Worldwide has acquired global rights to “Timmy,” a stop-motion animated series from the U.K.’s Aardman Animations (“Wallace and Gromit”).
The short-form series, slated to premiere worldwide in 2009 on Playhouse Disney channels, is aimed at children between the ages of 2 and 5. It stars 3-year-old Timmy, who was introduced on Aardman’s “Shaun the Sheep” series that is airing on Disney Channels around the world.
Miles Bullough, Aardman’s head of broadcast, said, “We are thrilled to partner with Disney on our first major foray into preschool programming. Having worked with Disney Channels in several territories on ‘Shaun the Sheep,’ it made complete sense for us to join forces on ‘Timmy’—we know that they will take great care of our latest offspring.”
“Our talented global team focuses on one brand and one vision, and it’s incredibly exciting when the decision to acquire a property is unanimous,” Disney Worldwide President Gary Marsh said Monday. “‘Timmy’ is a unique show from world-class auspices and is consistent with our strategy to offer endearing characters and stories with universal life lessons for preschoolers and caregivers to enjoy together.”

  5. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
