Aardman Animations' pre-school show Timmy Time is scheduled to air in the US from next month.

Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney will broadcast the series from September 13th, following a special sneak preview on September 7th.

Aardman is hoping Timmy Time can charm US audiences in the same way it has with UK viewers.

"We're thrilled to present Timmy in his own show to the North American audience," said Sean Clarke, head of Aardman Rights. "Like his elder flockmate, Shaun the Sheep, he is a much loved member of the Aardman line-up and we are excited to add to his fanbase in these new territories with Disney Channel as our broadcast partner."

Lionsgate and Hit Entertainment are on board for the DVD release, with the first due in early 2011. Toys will be available in spring 2011 from Jakks Pacific.
