Working with families the way I do, you end up catching a fair bit of children’s television. Over the past few years, I’ve come to a few conclusions.
~The only tolerable WonderPet is the turtle, Tuck. The duck is kind of a b*tch and the guinea pig can be an insufferable know-it-all. But the turtle is sweet and adorable and I love his little watershoes.
~Swiper the Fox doesn’t steal things to buy drugs or feed his family…. he doesn’t even take them! He just “swipes” things and throws them away – he either just does it to be a jerk, or I think he needs treatment for kleptomania.
~WHERE ARE MAX AND RUBY’S PARENTS??
~The blonde guy on Hi-5 is cute but the dark haired one is borderline creepy. No, scratch that. Straight up creepy.
~Where do Toot & Puddle get the money for all this airfare and cabs?
~The orange thing on Yo Gabba Gabba looks like something you’d keep in your nightstand if you know what I’m sayin’… I also NEVER understand what’s going on on that show. I guess I’m just not cool enough!
~It irritates me when animals are supposed to be animals but they act like humans. Like, I’m down with shows where the characters are obviously people but just look like animals, like Toot & Puddle or Olivia. I just hate when, like in WonderPets or Diego, they act like they’re teaching you something about animals but really the frog is playing with his grandchildren.
And finally (for now at least)…
~The Upside Down show is one of the funniest shows on television, for kids OR adults!
Anything interesting you’ve noticed about the stuff your kids watch?
