To think Mr Tumbles is quite possibly the most annoying man ever?

.... yet he seems to be on CBeebies constantly and plays countless characters all of them equally annoying and a little bit creepy. If I met him in real life I would have to fight the urge to give him a slap!

grampas vile-the house is lovely though!
we love mr maker too but I miss Neil Buchanan on art attack and Tony Hart too.

Justins house does me in but DC loves it, so that's whats important.

the Xmas SS gets me every time. the kids singing away in a manger with Justin .

and when they get so excited when they see him. even stones cry then!
annoying Aunt Polly though when 'she' says 'Mr Tiumble'.

hes a hero in chez Shassey.

gigglebiz IS annoying but we love Keith Fit, the mumbling farmer, and Arthur Sleep.

YABU Amazing for those of us with children that can't or couldn't speak.

Really dislike Grandpa, Rhyme Rocket characters and the Sailor one. Can't remember what it is called as turn off ASAP!

I was going to write almost your exact post Bubbles. I didn't like Justin at first but I've read interviews he's done and if seems really genuine in his passion for children's telly. I despise Jake on Tweenies though and bloody Zingzillas that he does voices for.

Commandersheppard - pirate is my ds's favourite sign at the moment, he walks around with his hand over one eye, bumping into things!

Love Gigglebiz, can't stand Justin's House, Something Special is brilliant.

I find him annoying but then its aimed at kids, TBh i'd be a bit worried if I were his biggest fan.
Although I did learn a fair bit of makaton from him but even ds2 (who is disabled) who was a fan has outgrown him

carvedpumpkin Sun 27-Oct-13 20:58:34

YABU (as I'm sure you know now!) he is amazing. I have a total not so secret crush on him! And something special is fantastic, today's episode was tear inducing when a small child was so ridiculously excited to see Justin arrive at his doctors appointment!

Bubbles1066 Sun 27-Oct-13 20:39:35

I like Lord Tumble too! I think YABU, I found Justin really annoying to start with but he's grown on me. I think he's really talented and seems like a nice guy. And I've been known to laugh at Gigglebizz I'm ashamed to say.

SigmundFraude Sun 27-Oct-13 20:35:42

I'd do Lord Tumble.

"Would you like a fumble Lord Tumble"

"Uh, yeeeeeeuuuuussss'

Bakingtins Sun 27-Oct-13 20:32:19

I have seen Mr Tumble live. Twice.

idiuntno57 Sun 27-Oct-13 20:28:34

Justin Fletcher is a god amongst men.

that is all.

CrapBag Sun 27-Oct-13 19:52:27

Ok, I'll be in the minority too but OP, YANBU.

I am sooo fed up with the amount of shite characters that he comes out with, none of which are remotely funny. I can only stand him when he is Justin Fletcher, none of his Tumble spin offs or gigglebiz shitey characters. Unfortunately DD likes him.

I am very annoyed that DD says "scuter" a la aunt Polly instead of scoter like a normal person. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

On the Tumble/Tumbles point: Grandpa Tumble was shouting for Dr Tumbles this morning <pedant>

I can never remember the signs but I do know 'pirate ship'...

Yabu. If you saw my 6 year old autistic son watch him you would change your mind in a flash ;-)

DziezkoDisco Sun 27-Oct-13 19:11:22

Whilst I love what he has done in bringing SNs into the main stream, for which I think he is brilliant, I have heard many accounts of him being a moody bastard in rl.

My kids were on justins house and he didnt once speak to the audience of camera, whereas robert was very friendly.

BeforeTheWorst Sun 27-Oct-13 18:58:06

Oh and I love that look Dina Lady does when she introduces Tommy! Ha ha. I think I need to get out more!

BeforeTheWorst Sun 27-Oct-13 18:56:55

Ha "watch and learn bains, watch and learn" I love Keith fitt on gigglebiz. My 2 year old likes something special but likes to watch "na na" with his big brother who is 9. Currently I am subjected to peppa pig on peppa pig month!

Nanny0gg Sun 27-Oct-13 18:48:36

How can anyone like Mr Maker?

<looks back fondly on the days of Tony Hart and Morph>

Mr Tumble is lovely, but I do miss Sid now he's only on Let's Play.

Yes - Angelina is terrible. Or as DH said yesterday "a sanctimonious, smug pile of shit".... Chloe's Closet runs it a close second.

I like Mr Tumble and all 'Justin' shows. I quite often feel slightly weepy when watching Something Special. When you see the reaction of the children it's heartwarming. Also love Arthur Sleep on Gigglebiz.

RightInTheKisser Sun 27-Oct-13 18:38:34

Mr Tumble is amazing! We love him here.

Justin is also the voice of Jake on the Tweenies

BurlyShassey Sun 27-Oct-13 18:31:30

we love Cliff Tumble too grin.

thehorridestmumintheworld Sun 27-Oct-13 18:27:13

Love Mr Tumble too for me the most annoying TV show is the new series of Angelina Ballerina the cgi Americanised version grr.

pigletmania Sun 27-Oct-13 18:24:47

Aww angel that is wonderful, Justin is really great with the children and they love him, thats the main thing. It comforted dd in times of anxiety and distress and I could have a 10 min tea break

angelabbie Sun 27-Oct-13 18:11:47

I took my 17 year old special needs daughter to see his live show. She was so happy and it made her year. I also fell in love with him just a tiny bit. He really made time to get out in the audience and interact with as many kids as possible. It was a fab show, not over priced and he actually has a decent voice.
