"Timing is Everything" is a series of animated shorts that were published to prepare for the release of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. The shorts focus on a heist that the gang pulls, stealing a gold watch from Muggshot's flying fortress. The gang runs into trouble, however, when Inspector Carmelita Fox makes an appearance.
Sony sent one part of the series to three different gaming journalism sites - the first to IGN, the second to GameInformer, the third to GameSpot - to release on consecutive days starting on January 22, 2013, two weeks before Thieves in Time was due to release in North America. The entire uncut short was posted to the PlayStation Blog on January 25, 2013.
The shorts were created by Ghostbot, the animation company behind the 2D cinematics that appear in Thieves in Time, in order to "reintroduce Sly Cooper and the gang in a big way."
