I'm new to Ubuntu and I'd like it so when I double click a .py file on my computer it automatically opens it in IDLE for Python 3.3.

Is this possible, if so, how?

Assuming you are using the default Ubuntu desktop, right click on the .py file, select Properties, Open With. The select Idle from the list and Set As Default. For other desktops, it will be something similar.
