Sometimes things hit me all of a sudden. Be it a belly laugh, unabashed love for my husband or food poisoning. Or, sometimes, it is a sick train of thoughts that lead me to this post.
TV to me is part of me. I grew up watching it all the time, and while I don’t watch nearly as much, it still is oddly a comfort to me. My kids (gasp) do watch TV. Mind you, they also play tons outside, read, color, etc, but we do allow TV in our home. So this led me to my thinking. There are some great little shows out there for kids.
Charlie and Lola. The sweetest.
Max and Ruby. Though they don’t have parents (don’t understand why), a very fun show. Love the music.
Mr. Rogers. Who wouldn’t want to be HIS neighbor? (Ok, except in that one episode where Lady Elaine turned big and really went ice skating. THAT WAS CREEPY.)
Well, good old Caillou. While he is whiny and a pain in the tush, Katie Mei loves his little bald head, so, therefore, I will tolerate him. For now. Watch out baldy, your time is coming.
This leads me to my next thought. Children’s shows are creepy. C-R-E-E-P-Y. No? You disagree? Let’s look.
Doodlebops. Ew. Why? Why only 4 fingers? And why? Ew.
Lazytown- not only weird costumes, but there are creepy puppet kids too.
This one. What is up with Yo Gabba Gabba? It is so awful. I mean the food one itself. And look at the arms on that green guy. And what is that hat on his head? Who thought this up?
I think it comes from the same people that came up with these gems….
I am not namin’ names, but someone I know is still creeped out by the talking flute. And WHO came up with these costumes?
New Zoo Revue. HUH? And to tell you the truth, I used to watch this show all the time. With Doug and Emmy Jo. But what is it all about? And why did Henrietta always hold that dang handkerchief?
So, I guess all in all, kids shows have always had a creep factor. I think that from now on, we will stick to good old plasticine.
I don’t know, Davy….
