When your last name is Failure, there’s really nowhere to go but up.

Timmy Failure is one of the most enterprising dudes with an unfortunate name since Willie Lowman. The 11-year-old boy believes he’s not only the best detective in town, but he’s willing to prove it. His Total Failure Inc. agency stands apart from the competition, if only because his partner in crime-stopping is a 1,100-pound polar bear. Based on the book series by Stephan Pastis, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made is a hilarious and heartfelt tale that only Disney could bring.
