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 yellow, blob-shaped cartoon character usually wearing a cowboy hat and bandanna, who promoted healthy eating and personal hygiene using clever songs and animation.
