Discuss Annoying Kids Tv Charaters! in The NAAFI Bar on The Army Rumour Service; Cbeebies used to have a program called Zingalong which involved some jock bird singing which was as painful as sticking your head in a meat mincer.
Ballamory, Jesus who thought that one up! even worse ...
Power Rangers (don't try this at home kids ) is the campest kids show ever. My 5yr old twins are obsessed. last christmas Mrs BigT cleared the shelves of toy's'R'us of Ninja Storm toys to satisfy their demands. On new years day a whole new range of Dino Thunder toys entered the shops. The whole show is an advert for the toys. I,d like to see them try to fight my wood chipper except for Kimberly the pink ranger from the first series she was hot.
Didn't she also come under the heading of "smalley girls"?
The Power Rangers should burn (or melt, there was certainly enough plastic in there) and the teletubbies should suffer something painful involving red hot pokers.
But on the subject of Barney...the place I was working at about six years ago ran a promotion involving Barney and this meant we had a couple of the blasted singing dolls in the store. After a week or so of having these around, I got into work to find that the dolls had been blindfolded and hung by the neck from the light fittings. The other thing that riles me about Barney is that catchphrase of "a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet."...which isn't just stupid but arguably dangerous, especially when you consider the message we usually tried to get into kids (when I was that age at least) was "Stranger = Danger".
Why we can't just go back to Quimby is what I want to know...
I detest "Big cook, Little cook" especially the one that flies arround one a wooden spoon! Luckily so does my girl, and so the TV can go off for a while.
Also "Dick and Dom" would be put out to grass pretty sharpish if I had my way, however they seem to what "everyone else" watches, and you're always in a losing battle with that one. I make sure that I mention at frequent intervals that some of their games are unkind and naughty, that sometimes works!
