Funshine Friday: Time for Timer ‘You Are What You Eat’

Hey kids, it's lovable Timer! He wants you to eat healthy yet he looks like a grossly overweight meatball. Oh, the irony!

“Hi there, Time for Timer!” Happy Funshine Friday, folks. This afternoon let’s ingest a small dose of Timer. Time for Timer shorts first aired in 1973 and ran throughout the 1970s on ABC Saturday mornings. The cartoon shorts were produced by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises (of Pink Panther cartoon fame.) Timer himself was first voiced by Len Maxwell and later, Lennie Weinrib (voice of and writer for H.R. Pufnstuf.)

The friendly and yellow…thing known as Timer inspired me to head into the kitchen and make my own popsicles by pouring juice into the ice trays and inserting tooth picks for sticks. Delicious and convenient. Grab a look at Timer singing “You Are What You Eat” in the spot below.
