This morning, blearily watching cbeebies, to my amusement i noticed that Andy first had his 'band', which consists of 5 of him,jumping about on screen and then tied his wrists together with sellotape.
That's not for the kids now, is it?!grin

Baisey Thu 30-Apr-09 09:13:36

Lmao am now imagining "cbeebies-after dark"

JackBauerkillspigs Thu 30-Apr-09 09:16:15

DO you think Sid and Andy tear off their nice jeans and shirts ala Full Monty?

<fans self>

Jackaroo Thu 30-Apr-09 09:16:33

ROFL - I don't often laugh out loud, but you managed it JB - I've really missed cbeebies in the last year of being away, but still vividly remember what they all look like...

Let me know if he makes himself a mask with a lead .......

Baisey Thu 30-Apr-09 09:18:09

Is it me or has Sid really bulked up in the muscle department?

JackBauerkillspigs Thu 30-Apr-09 09:20:19

Oh yes, but am a bit hmm about his hair at times.

And Dh reckons that Ceri is a 'right dirty little minx' (his words, not mine)
He could never look at Pui in a fanciable way after finding out she was a teletubby!

kwaker5 Thu 30-Apr-09 09:21:42

Sid has got bigger but Andy is WAAAAAY too thin don't you think?

kwaker5 Thu 30-Apr-09 09:21:43

Sid has got bigger but Andy is WAAAAAY too thin don't you think?

Baisey Thu 30-Apr-09 09:28:28

Im not sure it might because he's so lanky, I hated Andy when he first arrived but he has really grown on me.
Yes Sids hair is rather questionable.

foxytocin Thu 30-Apr-09 09:30:12

Why is Sid's hair questionable? It is dreadlocked. that is all.

JackBauerkillspigs Thu 30-Apr-09 09:34:27

I quite like the dreads actually, but it's questionable as cbeebies have no concept of conitnuity and it winds me upgrin
One day he will have little dreads, and the next day they stick on an old tape with an affro, and the next day it is shorter, adn then dreads again.
It shouldn't bother me that much, should it!

foxytocin Thu 30-Apr-09 09:44:00

no it shouldn't Jack grin

Baisey Thu 30-Apr-09 09:45:24

I dont like it to much I think he suits having it short all over better, Wow have nothing against dreadlocks <backs away slowly>

JackBauerkillspigs Thu 30-Apr-09 09:46:24

<makes note to get a life>

Baisey Thu 30-Apr-09 09:49:05

lol this is bad I have a day off from work and DS, so hence no cbeebies, yet I am inexplicibly drawn to a thread about it, I think I need to get out more.

Dysgu Thu 30-Apr-09 09:52:32

I miss Chris and Pui at bedtime! When they sang the bedtime song, DD1 was all ready for bed.

Now Alex and Kerrie do it and it doesn't have the same effect.

And I prefer Chris to Alex (but DD seems to have no pref.!)

kittybrown Thu 30-Apr-09 09:54:16

We find Andy slightly scary in this house. It's his sneery grin that gets us hiding behind the sofa.

JackBauerkillspigs Thu 30-Apr-09 09:56:20

The main probelm I have with Alex is the 'MC Hammer with cap on sideways rap' he does.
Childrens tv shoudln't make me cringe that badlygrin

kitbit Thu 30-Apr-09 10:05:09

Pui was a tellytubby??? Which one!

Biggest news I've heard all week. (need to get a life emoticon)

foxytocin Thu 30-Apr-09 10:07:19

the red one.

yes, i am sad too.

ZoeC Thu 30-Apr-09 10:08:43

Pui was Po.

MayorNaze Thu 30-Apr-09 10:10:24

oh i like andy. and sid. and their number rap blush

ceri is quite sweet but alex looks like one of the evil nerds from buffy the vampire slayer hmm

Wizzska Thu 30-Apr-09 11:13:48

Don't like Alex or Cerrie, far too wet for my liking. They have such simpering faces when they sing the songs.

Love Pui, Chris was alright too in comparison.

JackBauerkillspigs Thu 30-Apr-09 11:19:58

grin at alex/buffy.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Thu 30-Apr-09 11:30:01

I like Sid, but not Andy - too thin.

SamJamsmum Thu 30-Apr-09 11:30:23

Pui was Po's voice but another lass was in the costume - Rebecca Marr according to Wiki. I am deeply ashamed of the fact I was interested enough to look that up.

fufflebum Thu 30-Apr-09 11:37:05

Miss Chris and Pui. Will they turn up in an episode of some day time soap?

Housemum Fri 01-May-09 13:13:48

I think Chris's eyebrows have been making a career for themselves - perhaps they have gone solo?

Grumpyoldcaaaaaaaa Fri 01-May-09 13:19:49

Someone mentioned on another thread many months ago Sid's curious-ah pronunciation-ah of-ah words. He really does make a meal of them sometimes. Bless him.

They're all cringeworthy in true BBC Childrens' TV Presenter fashion.

DuffyFluckling Fri 01-May-09 13:26:21

I left the UK 6 months ago but still find myself humming the number rap on occasion.

THREE! (three) something something three...

Don't really know the words...

Grumpyoldcaaaaaaaa Fri 01-May-09 13:36:49

Duffy, my DD2 amuses herself by rapping '2,2 I did a big poo' and '3,3 a big smelly wee'.

She's very machure.

BooRadders Fri 01-May-09 13:44:32

Love that Grumpy! DD1 hates Andy and does good impression of his flared nostrils..........personally I hate his train guard sketch. Does anyone else wonder how someone must feel having to confess "my DP does that train guard thing on tv......."

Sunshinemummy Fri 01-May-09 13:52:32

I saw Andy in Waterloo and he's lush in real life.

wotulookinat Fri 01-May-09 13:54:40

I wish Andy would do all day on CBeebies.

Grumpyoldcaaaaaaaa Fri 01-May-09 15:43:01

Ooh BooRadders I wish you hadn't pointed out flared nostrils, I haven't noticed but know that all I will be able to see now are gigantic flaring nostrils. <and in, and out, and in, and out shudder>

varicoseveined Fri 01-May-09 20:09:55

I need to get out more, I have mini crushes on Sid and Chris! I love the number raps too

disillusionedmum Fri 01-May-09 20:20:57

I gotta agree about Alex and Cerri..ok they do try but even us Big persons aren't convinced..they just don't come across as natural to me..they are stiffer and deliberate..oh gee look at what i have turned into..yikes! is it so obvious I have become a Follower of the CBeebies clan..I feel I will never be able to carry out an adult conversation again for watching so much of them grin

solidgoldSneezeLikeApig Fri 01-May-09 22:08:14

None of them are as annoying as that woman on Razzzle Dazzle who should have asked her stage school for a farking refund.

SamJamsmum Sat 02-May-09 06:34:00

duffy fluckling

If a song is stuck in your head - better get some more words...

Ballina Sat 02-May-09 20:37:04

oh, I wonder if there is any Sid/Andy slash...

linspins Sat 02-May-09 22:17:12

Bring back Chris! Alex is too drippy. Chris was cute...

Rialentless Sat 02-May-09 22:26:30

maybe Boogie Pete and Nature Chris could do a slot or two? <breathes deeply>

the number rap is good.

the range of regional accents that Cerrie and Alex go through is interesting

am glad that other blonde woman isn't on any more though - Sue?

linspins Sat 02-May-09 22:28:57

Oooh, yeah, Boogie Pete and Chris in a programme together....
(drifts off in a dream)

giddykipper Sat 02-May-09 22:29:47

Boogie Pete makes my skin crawl

Ballina Sun 03-May-09 07:33:16

I think Ceri and Alex are warming up nicely. They did have that 'rabbit caught in the headlights' look about them for the first few weesk though, bless 'em.

JackBauerKillsPigs Sun 03-May-09 14:13:28

Not nature chris, we want Doodle Do chris back!

Rialentless Sun 03-May-09 15:43:13

I'm not that picky about my Chris'swink

puffling Mon 04-May-09 23:58:33

I don't think Cerrie and Alex are warming up,fast enough. Even. channel 5 presenters have more spark than them.
