Tickety Toc is a British and South Korean animated CGI series, produced by The Foundation, part of Zodiak Media Group and FunnyFlux Entertainment.[2] The first series consist of 52 episodes, each 11 minutes long, but is shown as twenty-six blocks, each containing two episodes in some countries.

The first series was acquired by Nick Jr. as part of a global deal. Tickety Toc aired across Asia from 19 April 2012 and was subsequently rolled out internationally with localised dubs. Tickety Toc aired for the first time on British TV on 23 April 2012 as the number 1 Nick Jr. show,[3] and became the number 1 daytime show on Nick Jr. US[4] for the first 3 months when it launched 10 September 2012.[5] In addition to the Nick Jr. global acquisition, the show has been sold to free-to-air television partners internationally. Launching on Channel 5's Milkshake slot 1 November 2012, other broadcasters who have picked up the 52-episode series include TG4 in Ireland and Family Channel in Canada. Jolly Roger (Amusement Rides LTD) made a kiddie ride based on Pufferty the train, featuring the main characters Tommy & Tallulah. It features a mirror so you can see yourself on Pufferty, the Tickety Toc theme tune and 4 funny sound effects.

In the US, Tickety Toc originally aired on Nickelodeon's preschool block, but was later burned off to Nick Jr.


The series follows the adventures of comedic heroes, twins Tommy and Tallulah and is set in an extraordinary world behind the face of the Tickety Toc Clock. As every hour passes, the clock springs to life to chime in the time, but things don't always run smoothly.[6]

The show centres on Tommy & Tallulah and their remarkable friends, as they race against time to keep the clock ticking and to perform their duty of chiming in the time. Through Tommy & Tallulah's madcap adventures, Tickety Toc explores concepts of teamwork, social responsibility & problem solving in a fun and engaging way.[7]

Every show starts with Pufferty dropping off the twins after they've finished Chime Time. Tommy & Tallulah then unintentionally set off a chain of events which will ultimately threaten to prevent Chime Time from happening. With the help from one or more of the eclectic Tickety Town residents, the twins develop ways of overcoming the emotional or physical jeopardy that has been caused. Once the problem is resolved, Pufferty takes Tommy & Tallulah to the Tickety Toc Clock so Chime Time can take place again.
