The Life & Times of Tim is an American adult animated sitcom created by Steve Dildarian for HBO. It premiered on September 28, 2008. The series is about a hapless man in his mid-20s named Tim (voiced by Dildarian) who lives in New York City with his girlfriend Amy. Throughout the series, Tim constantly finds himself in increasingly awkward situations in both his work and personal life.[1]

The first season aired in 2008 and has since been aired in numerous countries, and has developed a cult following. The second season debuted on February 19, 2010 on HBO. On June 4, 2010, HBO announced it was canceling the show. There were rumors that it was going to be picked up by another network.[2] On 16 August 2010,[3] it was announced HBO had reversed their original decision to cancel the show, and as a result, a third season was ordered.[3] Season 3 of The Life and Times of Tim premiered on December 16, 2011.[4]

On April 20, 2012, HBO cancelled the series after three seasons.[5]

The theme song is "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" performed by country music star Hank Williams.

It is the first HBO animated original since Todd McFarlane's Spawn, which aired from 1997 to 1999. It was originally developed for Fox in 2007, but was instead picked up by HBO for 10 episodes. The first season ran from September 28, 2008 to November 30, 2008 on HBO.

Dildarian, in addition to providing the voice of Tim, serves as the series' executive producer. Dildarian is most notable for his famous "Budweiser Lizards" campaign. He is also known for his animated short Angry Unpaid Hooker, which was awarded the Best Animated Short at the 2006 Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and is the basis for The Life & Times of Tim. Tom Werner (That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and The Cosby Show), Jimmy Miller (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Borat) and Mike Clements executive produce as well.

The show aired its last original episode on February 17, 2012. HBO has canceled the series.[6]
