‘ Time for Timer’ and ‘Hanker for a Hunka Cheese’

Time for Timer was a series of animated public service announcements produced by ABC which aired on Saturday mornings in the 1970s. They featured Timer, the singing cheese snack food who taught kids about nutrition and hygiene. The most well-known segment is probably when Timer became a cowboy in “Hanker for a Hunka Cheese”. This should bring back memories for a few of you.

Oh and then there was that time when the Family Guy’s Peter Griffin ran into a cracked out Timer at 3:30am, who was making a racket next door.

UPDATE: Timer is a character from the 1973 ABC After School Special “The Incredible, Indelible, Magical, Physical Mystery Trip”. Does anyone know where I can find a copy of that video? I remember watching that one over and over as a kid.
