A TV, or television, is an item of furniture obtainable in the Animal Crossing series. Like in real life, TVs broadcast an assortment of programs when turned on, such as game shows, cartoons, or plays. TVs also feature weather forecasts that tell the player the weather of the following day. In Animal Crossing, TVs play one show that can be viewed only on a certain TV.

Televisions

Programming

Programs come on at certain times of day, although in Animal Crossing, TVs show the same program depending on which type of TV it is. The following programs can be found on TV throughout the day in all games but Animal Crossing:

Wild World & City Folk

News

The newswoman tells about some sort of speech in one report and some sort of fire, inter-spliced with a field interview of a man, as K.K. D&B play in the background. In Happy Home Designer, the fire disaster was changed to a nighttime fairground display.

Weather

The Weatherman tells explains about the weather while acoustic versions of K.K. Love Song, Café K.K. and K.K. Swing play in the background. This program will also display what the weather will be like tomorrow, making it useful for planning out activities that depend on the weather (such as catching certain kinds of bugs and fish).

Soap Opera

What seems to be a young man and a woman talk at some sort of house, likely confessing their love with each other. It's likely the show Sable watches, and she calls it Pointed Love. The music from The Roost in Wild World & City Folk can be heard.

Nature

The view switches from various landscapes, while the sound of nature and a narrating voice can heard.

Action

A superhero, based on Kamen Rider and Super Sentai (adapted into Power Rangers), is seen running at the front and posing while Go K.K. Rider can be heard playing. Go K.K. Rider's cover art and musical style is inspired by the original Kamen Rider TV show.

Comedy

A man and a woman are showing at a stage, with the woman telling jokes while the man seems to be annoyed with it, likely referring to the manzai style of comedy. For some reason, one scene has them both speaking in unison. A varied instrumentation of K.K. Ragtime is played.

Quiz

Four contestants are challenged to answer questions. The man who gives the answer gets it wrong, while the girl gets the question right.

Ball Game

There is a soccer match going on, with two teams being pitted against each other.

Music

What seems to be either a live concert or a music video shows a girl with a band singing to a rendition of K.K. Jazz.

Movie

A person with a gun attempts to make their way through the building. Afterwards, they notice someone and try to shoot them as the building bursts into flames.

Test Pattern

A test card is shown, while a long beeping noise can be heard. The test card resembles the SMPTE Color Bars in the Japanese and North American version, while the Philips PM5544 test pattern is used in the European version.

Static

All is shown is static, as the daily run for the television broadcast is over.

Introduced in New Leaf

AppleProgram

Aerobics

A calisthenics program based on Rajiou Taiso plays to the tune of the Morning Aerobics theme from Animal Crossing. Like Rajiou Taiso, this program only airs in the early morning.

Cooking

It shows a chef making some unknown food for a hungry woman. K.K. Etude plays in this show,

Talk Show

As the music from inside the Happy Room Academy Headquarters from City Folk plays at the beginning, there's a woman talking to a man, likely expressing their feelings.

Cartoon

A cat and a mouse chase each other around in a pastiche of the Tom and Jerry animated short films while K.K. Rockabilly plays in the background.

UFO

A strange alien transmission that appears from 3:33 AM to 3:34 AM on Sunday and Monday. It seems to be delivering a message of some sort. The alien is seen moving closer and farther from the viewer.

New Horizons

In New Horizons, the television programs have been almost completely reworked, whilst having the schedule change in order to compliment with the new style.

News

Two news reports and interviews with human civilians are shown, with K.K. Technopop being played in the background.

Weather

In the morning, a lady delivers the weather report for the day. In the evening the weather report shows what you can expect tomorrow. (Unlike the original game, the same song plays on loop rather than fading out or starting over.)

Cartoon

A cartoon of a dog chasing a cat up a building, before the dog eventually falls down and the cat gets away. Just like in New Leaf, K.K. Rockabilly is used as background music.

Talk

Just like the Comedy show, K.K. Ragtime is used as background music.

Tennis

A tennis match is played between two women. Applause and commentary can be heard. Occasionally, the screen shows two audience members that resemble celebrities.

Action

A mechanical robot fights a Godzilla-like monster, while K.K. Metal is used. The Zap Suit jingle is played at the end.

Drama

A drama show with scenes depicting men and women talking, and two hands reaching for a book.

Nature

The program is now a safari outing rather than scenes of nature, with K.K. Safari as the theme song. Hypno K.K. plays at the end.

Concert

A pop idol group performs a rendition of K.K. Disco and Bubblegum K.K..

UFO

A strange alien broadcast that appears from 3:33 a.m. at 3:34 a.m. on Saturday. He appears to be delivering a message of some kind, and displays a UFO while speaking.

RetroTV

There are six new commercials introduced in New Leaf.

Trivia

  • Most TVs in the Animal Crossing series series appear to be based on CRT monitors (which were standard among households from the late 1940's to the late 2000's), with only a select few based on HD LED monitors (which have been standard among households since the late 2000's).
