Time for Timer: I Hanker for a Hunk of Cheese

Time for Timer was the collective title for a short series of public service announcements broadcast on Saturday mornings on the ABC television network starting in the early 1970s. The animated spots featured Timer, a tiny (often ranging on microscopic) cartoon character who promoted healthy eating and personal hygiene for children, using clever songs and animation.

  1. As I recall, Timer actually came from a longer full length cartoon The Magical Mystery Trip Through Little Red's Head and then appeared in these shorts.
