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?

Oh I like show me show me as well.

Awh I think Tig is a cute child (to look at, her attitude is a bit hmm ).
Green Balloon kids make me want to throw myself off a bridge.

I can't really cope with any of the cbeebies shows, they make me want to headbutt a wall. The only ones which don't drive me totally insane are Balamory, Come Outside, Charlie and Lola and Tinga Tinga. I have a specific hate for Timmy time because its just a mindless constant bleat of animal noises, the men on Rhyme Rocket (specifically the ugly one) make irritating OTT faces, Mr Maker..what can I say, I can cook, Zingzillas.. Argh. Worst one of all is Rastamouse.

I stick to Disney Junior, I find it much less offensive although Art Attack really gets my goat- its soo very boring.

Best thing thats been on beebies for ages. And both children happily ate fruit afterwards. Going to have to find it on iplayer to show dh - the things he misses when he goes to work.

grin they must have had a brilliant time creating the lyrics for that one.

wonderstuff Fri 19-Oct-12 16:15:11

I loved the poo song 'stay in your bottom and not make a plop' PMSL

CuriosityColaKilledTheCat Fri 19-Oct-12 16:13:53

Is anyone else witnessing the poo song on 'get well soon'. Easy to do, easy to poogrin

I hate GiMP, it appears to have been written by someone elderly, or at least completely out of touch with modern reality. In what universe do today's kids just want to play with wooden aeroplanes, kites, balls and listen to the wireless? It's like they're saying, this was a better time, you're all wrong and ungrateful for wanting more exciting toys, or watching the tv.

Grandpa is seriously unpleasant, manipulative and weird. He always wants to take people down a peg or two, I remember one episode where he berated a teenager for basically being a teenager, (specifically because he was napping on the sofa - which apparently is a big problem) and said they needed to "fix him" hmm

I love Nanny Plum. She's the power behind the throne and close relation of Miss Rabbit, the Richard Branson of Peppa Pig land.

Love Abney and Teal, DD got the dolls for her birthday and not just so I could play with them

But. Special agent Oso needs putting down. Permanently. Plush fucker gives me the rage.

IWillOnlyEatBeans Thu 18-Oct-12 21:21:21

My husband's sister's husband's sister (!) used to present Let's Pretend! I used to love it when I was little.

My all time favourite from my childhood was Bod - anyone else remember him (her?)??

HorridHeffalumpsWickedWoozles Thu 18-Oct-12 17:46:23

titwillow grin at "it's bonking time!" I'd forgotten that!

Off to Amazon to get the DVD, we might have the video but no longer anything to play it on, just can't bring myself to throw it out!

The Shoe People was great <sings shshshshoooee people> had forgotten about that one too.

Anyone else used to love Tales from the Riverbank?

peeriebear Thu 18-Oct-12 13:47:14

We have Trapdoor on video smile and an ancient compilation of:
Spot
The Shoe People
Superted
James the Cat
Wil Cwac Cwac
Ancient stop motion Noddy
ditto Postman Pat
ditto Paddington
possibly a few others. The kids still watch it!

TonyMontanasGun Thu 18-Oct-12 10:02:20

I hate the green balloon brats, one in particular, cant remember his name, he's so fucking smug, i want to punch my tv!

I actually dont think there is any kids programme i like, they're all wank

TitWillow Thu 18-Oct-12 09:47:58

I have Trapdoor on DVD, and the DC love it. The only problem is the language is from a more innocent time. Trust me, you don't want your toddler running about the supermarket shouting "It's bonking time!" blush

RawShark Thu 18-Oct-12 08:41:25

TRapdoor is under £5 on Amazon

TheLazyGirl Thu 18-Oct-12 08:04:49

I'm going to look for the DVD of Trapdoor, definitely then hide it from the brats for my own personal joy

Showed my DD (5) Let's Pretend on Youtube. Her verdict was "boring, and why can you see the lady moving the puppet?". To be fair, she was right.

I need to find this Lazy Town apocalypse blog immediately! Link please PrincessTeacake

EugenesAxe Wed 17-Oct-12 20:30:28

penguin - Same Smile I think that's called. Not watched it much so it hasn't wound me up yet.

ppppppppenguin Wed 17-Oct-12 20:26:56

What's the program with the woman an the panda teddies? It makes me so angry!!

EverybodysSpookyEyed Wed 17-Oct-12 19:46:31

i keep seeing cars with those eyelashes and they make me cringe because of I can cook

HappyHippyChick Wed 17-Oct-12 19:29:21

Seriously, no-one else wants to repeatedly run I can cook Katie over with her stupid van with eyelashes? Just me? Ok then...

RawShark Wed 17-Oct-12 19:25:12

Are we including the old Postman Pat and the old Thomas programmes or is it jus the modern ones are rubbish? I fortuntely do not yet have the depth of knowledge to comment

I am oging to go on line and find TRapdoor on DVD immediately.

HorridHeffalumpsWickedWoozles Wed 17-Oct-12 19:14:32

thelazygirl I still have the VHS tapes of Trapdoor from when I was little, definitely the best children's programme ever.

Button moon was another good one, and the clangers, and I still love the animation of the magic roundabout - links to drug usage aside!

There just aren't the same calibre of programmes now sad
