to hate this programme so much?

Just to lighten up recent threads.....Mike the Knight has always annoyed me; but the more I watch it the MORE it annoys me (to be clear I am not watching it on my own, or I'd turn it off)

MtK never learns from his mistakes or follows his own slogan. The vikings are just stupid foreigners and the villagers are lumpen idiots and need to be continually bossed about led by a smug incompetent pre-teen knight - in -training, who insists on continually making them applaud his latest self-aggrandising endeavour. I would be trying to make a political point here, if it weren't time for bed and thus I am too knackered to think!

And the other day they were having a sleep over and the queen was still in her gown and crown - production couldn't even be arsed to design some regal jammies.

And the theme tune is sooooo catchy. Arrgh. There are programs that I dislike but my hatred for this one just seems to grow and grow. I know IABU to bother hating a program, but does it irk anybody else?

Driver Dan really pisses me off too. I hate his voice and the way he's all like, 'And you? Are you sitting down comfortably and ready to listen?' Fuck off Dan. Just fuck off. You're like a bad teacher who assumes all the kids are gonna piss about before you've given them a chance. YES I'M FUCKING SITTING DOWN. And also all of the stories and illustrations are bloody shite.

YES, YES, YES!

The little idiot.

Nothing's as bad as that lecturing control freak spider. Back off and leave the little girl alone, will you!

RawShark Tue 16-Oct-12 20:49:43

I think we're supposed to like Everything's Rosie because it has a female protagonist or something.

Don;t mind Baby Jake - but the rabbit gives me the heeby jeebies shudders

I've never managed to watch a whole GiMP (only just realised hilarious acronym while typing sniggers) but I can't say it gets up my nose like Mike the fucking knight

Mooq Tue 16-Oct-12 20:51:30

Hee hee! My friend wrote and sings that "annoying" theme tune! grin

PseudoBadger Tue 16-Oct-12 20:52:01

The rabbit and monkey in Baby Jake are just the stuff of nightmares!

HorridHeffalumpsWickedWoozles Tue 16-Oct-12 20:52:18

I have nothing productive to add other than I agree with ALL of you! Every programme already mentioned is on my list of things that make me want to claw my eyes out. Especially Everything's sodding Rosie <screams> and Mike the brattish knight.

My exception is Nanny Plum, I think she is a genius character grin

Shutupanddrive Tue 16-Oct-12 20:59:16

Oh come on!!! Has no-one mentioned special agent Oso? What a thick t**t

Is he an octonaught or however it's spelt? That captain looks like John Major IMO

TheLazyGirl Tue 16-Oct-12 21:00:36

Not a fan of any of the crap my DCs watch. The only ones I can tolerate are Abney and Teal or Charlie and Lola.

I make up alternative names though, like Turd and Bird, Nuzzle My Snatch, In the Shite Garden.

For Timmy Time, I made up a new theme tune, which the kids like too:
Timmy, its Timmy,
He'd go rather nice with a bit of mint sauce,
Timmy, oh Timmy
Some spuds, some veggies
And gravy of course.

Cheers me up anyway

RawShark Tue 16-Oct-12 21:00:51

Mooq - the MtK theme tune? It's the best bit of the whole thing so they should pat themselves on the back! I actually quite like the bit at the end with the sheep, so I am NOT AT ALL BLINKERED.

And I forgot to say I hate the way they shoe horn one vaguely non-caucasian character in with an accent. Just so they are PC. Grrrrr

RawShark Tue 16-Oct-12 21:01:47

WTF is NUzzle my Snatch confused?

PseudoBadger Tue 16-Oct-12 21:02:47

Nuzzle and Scratch is genius TheLazyGirl grin

Mooq Tue 16-Oct-12 21:03:25

Yep, RawShark, Mike the Knight. He does Charlie & Lola, Tommy Zoom and a few others too.

Figgygal Tue 16-Oct-12 21:03:49

Agree Mtk is banned in our house as is mickey clubhouse, jake and the never land pirates and special bastard Oso cannot stand that one!!

Surprised at the tinny bashing my DS loves it has done since was about 3 months old he bounces on ur knee and now he bounces actually off the ground gets so excited by the music

PseudoBadger Tue 16-Oct-12 21:04:55

My friend's dog is Daniel in Tommy Zoom!

CuriosityColaKilledTheCat Tue 16-Oct-12 21:08:04

grin@ regal jammies

I loath Mike the Knight. He is so spoiled. I detest Agent Oso more. The 'three special steps' sticks in my head for days. Plus the kids always complete the mission without any real input from him...he is a complete numpty!

The get well show is strange. I can't take my eyes of the guys eyebrows. They deserve a show all of their own. smile

The only thing I really like is Mr Bloom blush

wonderstuff Tue 16-Oct-12 21:11:17

Can't believe no one has mentioned Ben and Holly - surely the worst childrens cartoon ever ever ever. Can't bare it. The episode where the (mainly male) elves learn to tell the time using clocks while the silly (mainly female) fairys blow on dandelions and grumbly tummies. Aaarrgghh

WellHello Tue 16-Oct-12 21:11:42

YES Mike the Knight is a bossy little spoilt twat! Those two dragons FAWN over him, the silly bastards angry

Dp calls the Grandpa show "Paedo" In My Pocket blush .... as cringeworthy as that programme is, I like James Bolam and tell Dp off for this crude comment

The doctor off Get Well Soon looks like one of the puppets he co-stars with

The Wise Female Tree off Everythings Rosie is up herself and Raggles is a twat

Postman Pat is a shit postman and all the villagers and boring and ugly

and breeeeath

TheLazyGirl Tue 16-Oct-12 21:13:43

The guy in Get Well Soon is an actual medical dude, he worked with my DDs godmother in Kent.

Nuzzle my Snatch is my personal fave too smile

RawShark Tue 16-Oct-12 21:15:12

Lucy in Postman Pat always makes me think of Lucy in Neighbours because she seems to have one crazy adenoidal brum accent and one not.

I like Mr Bloom purely because of the line "with my veg and plants, I can sing and dance". Genius.

Can't wait to be annoyed by all the shows mentioned above I haven;t seen yet.

CuriosityColaKilledTheCat Tue 16-Oct-12 21:18:54

Ah, I like the 'nuuuuuurssssseeeerrryyyyyyy' part with the jazz hands and twirl. grin

WellHello Tue 16-Oct-12 21:21:26

LOL LazyGirl "Nuzzle my Snatch" :D

The songs on Mr Bloom are great, dd loves it.

bedmonster Tue 16-Oct-12 21:21:45

The one I hate the most is the Bopps - they sing a song about eating bogeys for tea - it turns my stomach!

WellHello Tue 16-Oct-12 21:24:14

.....oh yes, Timmy Time! (keep reading further upthread) I love that theme tune and so does dd, she laughs at the bit where he jumps up and he goes "Its Timmy Time!"

I shall cease now.
