To think that Sarah and Duck on cbeebies should have a proper theme tune?

I can't help but feel that I am not getting value for my license fee when the narrator just says 'Sarah and Duck' three times with some lift Muzak plinking away in the background.

Likesshinythings Wed 10-Apr-13 17:47:27

Who is the narrator? Was trying to look at he titles as it ended but hey were too fast (presumably to avoid further repetition of the title?!). He sounds like one of the actors from "Cabin Pressure" on R4. Is going to irritate me not to know (sad!)

I think he is the Tory MP from The Thick of It.

Trapper Wed 10-Apr-13 17:51:17

Roger Allam.

Likesshinythings Wed 10-Apr-13 17:51:57

Thank you. I would have been preoccupied with that all evening otherwise!

MooMooSkit Wed 10-Apr-13 17:51:58

I hate Sarah and Duck. I agree it's the worst theme tune ever. LO just says "sarah and duck" over and over during the day till I say "quack" after!

MissEleanorLavish Wed 10-Apr-13 17:53:03

Yep it's Roger Allam. It's a huge favourite in our house - I love the knitting lady (actually the cook from downton - can you tell I had to
Google it earlier this week? grin)

I quite like Sarah and Duck. And I much prefer no theme tune because less likely to get inside head and drive me to wild reaches of insanity a la Peppa &^%%&(( Pig.

sarahandemily Wed 10-Apr-13 17:57:42

Yes! We love the theme tune and all join in on the quacks!

NoTeaForMe Wed 10-Apr-13 18:13:05

I love Sarah and Duck. My husband thinks the theme tune is ridiculous too!

When is it on now though? It was about 4pm but seems to have disappeared!

Chockyeggpants Wed 10-Apr-13 18:14:47

Love Sarah and Duck!
It's the simplicity that is so appealing.
Reminds me of Mary Mungo and Midge.
Do You Live in a Town?

Oodsigma Wed 10-Apr-13 18:26:35

We love it too. Have you seen the one at the fair when duck watches 'hook a duck'in the background?

OhGood you've put that tune in my head....

b4bunnies Wed 10-Apr-13 18:31:47

don't dare change sarah & duck! not in any way at all. duck! duck! more duck!

today i've seen scarf lady's house, robot juice (again), penguins, donkey, cake bake. yesterday i saw shallots, robot juice, sit shop and stargazing.

there are still some i haven't seen. don't touch the duck!

YABU we love it here - one of the few things that will cheer up DD mid-tantrum "Sarah and duck" says I: "Quack" says DD with a smile smile

Trapper Wed 10-Apr-13 18:38:04

And what's with those BIG EYES?

SmellieWellies Wed 10-Apr-13 18:41:17

Today DC 3 (also aged 3) and i ran around the house screeching 'Sarah and Duck, QUACK' FOR HOURS (it seems).

Was fun. smile

PseudoBadger Wed 10-Apr-13 18:44:42

Sarah and Duck is just pure surreal brilliance. I would actually watch it even without DS in the house.

b4bunnies Wed 10-Apr-13 21:23:44

i live on my own.

I don't get Sarah and Duck. I like the idea, but the execution is just a bit dreary to me. Much prefer Abney and Teal, which is in the same sort of surrealist vein, but much brighter and more engaging.
However DS adores it, I can usually wiggle out of an oncoming tantrum by cheerfully saying "Want to watch some Sarah and Duck, DS?" grin

PseudoBadger Wed 10-Apr-13 21:41:07

Kudos b4bunnies grin

Lots of Shallots is one of my favourites - "turnip, turnip, turnip, quack!"

ThwartedbyMum Wed 10-Apr-13 21:44:26

Anyone else think Duck looks more like a pigeon than a duck?

WhatTheWaterGaveMe Wed 10-Apr-13 21:51:23

Sarah and Duck....do do do....Sarah and Duck....

It DOES get stuck in your head!
I repeat "Sarah and Duck" all day sometimes

MsPepperminCreams Wed 10-Apr-13 22:03:08

Sarah and Duck fly through the air. Like a girl and duck. Super Sarah. Super Duck. Super Sarah. Super Duck.

neverputasockinatoaster Wed 10-Apr-13 22:39:02

I love Sarah and Duck!

LittleEdie Wed 10-Apr-13 22:44:18
