Friends, I have had to bring you news of many items of corruption, concealed within the television shows that are fed to our children, but during my investigations into Timmy Time, I have discovered not just corruption, but the very filming of the corruption, and it’s broadcast as entertainment to the youth of the world. Not since ‘The Running Man’ has such barbarity been shown as entertainment. Not since ‘The X Factor’ put all first auditions on a big stage in front of a live audience has such debasement of character been mainstreamed. They try to hide the truth of what’s going on by making all of the characters talk in a meaningless babble, like Pokémon of the damned, but the truth is always there for those who have the eyes to see it!
The first inkling of darkness in Timmy Time, comes during the introduction. We see Timmy leaving his weeping mother as he goes off to “school”. Her tears are not of simple awareness of how much she will miss him, look at her face! There’s a gut wrenching pain there, a knowledge that something precious is being taken away from her, and that what she will be getting back will be slightly less. There’s a helplessness in a situation that she cannot escape or alter, and the slow erosion of her son is as unalterable and gradual as an oncoming glacier.
The next scene reveals it all. We see one of the teachers, a heron, closing and locking the gate after Timmy has left. This action is not to keep people out of Timmy’s field, but to keep Timmy’s mother locked in. This is her prison, along with who knows how many more, and every day her child is taken away to be “educated”.
Timmy’s mother was too close to Timmy’s father, who my research has revealed was a politically outspoken freelance journalist. Timmy was too young to remember the night when they came for him, and when they were moved to the field, with the gate that would only be opened to let him out once a day, before being returned after an extensive re-education program.
The oppression is right there for all to see. The teachers are all birds, an owl and a heron! The only authority permitted is from birds! The one thing in every episode that all of the children instantly obey? The cuckoo clock! What ever the Great Cuckoo says, you do it immediately, and joyfully! All animals must obey the Great Cuckoo. Get them while they’re young! The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world! Breed in them an obedience to the effigy, and you will raise in them a loyalty to the reality! The great irony, screaming at all of us. The Cuckoo, usurper of the young. Taking a place in the nest of the children, and growing fat while they starve, slowly pushing out their individualities until all they can say is “Cuckoo”.
The society they exist in is clearly hierarchical. Even the young owl, who can expect some privileges as an avian is keen to show that he knows his place. Whenever he flies, he always sticks close to the ground. He knows not to fly higher than may be permitted, not to seek superiority until it is given to him. What we are seeing, as entertainment, is the slow destruction of Timmy the sheep, and the slow emerging of Timmy the upholder and defender of the superior avian race.
Lastly, Friends, there is the insultingly blatant title. Timmy Time. Timmy does Time. Timmy does Time in a happy smiley friendly place of fun that’s slowly conditioning him to unquestioning supplication and obedience to the totalitarian avian society that seeks to infect the nest of the young with it’s poison, like all good cuckoos do!
The current state of Timmy’s father is unknown. From my continuing investigation the trail becomes colder everyday. Previously obtainable records have vanished, articles he had written now have other authors names attached. His birth certificate no longer exists, and Timmy’s father is officially listed as ‘The Glorious Avian Party’.
Maybe Timmy is the lucky one. He might be able to avoid a life sentence for politically unfavourable opinions in a totalitarian state, as he is young enough to still be malleable, but that is a luxury his mother is not permitted. If Timmy learns the correct lessons, says the right things, thinks the right thoughts, one day there may even be a spot in the party for him!
