    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    10:20 is the time that research shows sells clocks best, as it looks like a smiling face. Not sure if there is any Disney significance with the time, though.

    It's correct that 10:20 is popular to sell clocks but it's because it perfectly frames the company name that is on nearly every single clock face. I don't know though if the Frontierland clock is inoperable and needs to be fixed or if it's designed that way.

    Maybe Cogsworth knows the answer?

    Maye it's the pessimist in me but I just assume it's broken and the bean counters haven't given the OK to fix it.
