Is quite an obnoxious little brat?
He is bossy and rude.
Gets on my nerves.
My daughter loves it! So here we are watching it again!

Not as bad as tig from wooly and tig!

Dh and I think Mike the Knight is secretly a bit of Tory propaganda.

Think about it: wears blue, privileged, ruling class, stomps all over the plebs, anti immigrants (the vikings), annoying haircut... It's all there.

Start em young, and all...

OnceUponAThyme Thu 07-Mar-13 09:01:44

it's because everyone favours him over his sister, so he gets away with everything. I have too much time on my hands...

snickers251 Thu 07-Mar-13 09:03:09

I prefer him to peppa!!

TheRivieraKid Thu 07-Mar-13 09:11:55

Mike needs a good kicking. His Mum annoys me too. Classic case of PFB.

MrsLyman Thu 07-Mar-13 09:14:51

I just wish that for once he could do it right the first time!

I hate mike the knight. He's a little shit. (Like the Tory propaganda theory).

In addition to what others have said, I hate that his utterly absent father is totally lionised. He swans off doing 'knightly' things leaving his wife to deal with everything and she just sits around painting pictures of his great deeds. Gah.

To clarify. Mike is a shit. The Tory propaganda theory is great.

The Tory thing makes total sense, Mike is an entitled little bastard who does whatever the hell he likes and then tries to blame everyone else for his fuck-ups. I hate him, I wish the dragons would eat him, what kind of a shitty knight is friends with dragons anyway, weren't knights meant to get rid of dragons?

MrsGeologist Thu 07-Mar-13 09:20:06

I hate him. Hate hate hate him.

Odious turd. His mother is one of those dog owners that gives dog owners a bad name too.

LadyRainicorn Thu 07-Mar-13 09:23:00

He never fucking learns his lesson does he? Never tries listening to what people are trying to tell him first before fucking it all up. Bad as bloody Thomas the tank engine.

We also hate him, horrible character, I always feel sorry for Evie and the dragons. I'll be sure to tell my OH about the Tory theory, he'll love it! grin

MrsGeologist Thu 07-Mar-13 09:29:03

He's like a watered down version of Goffrey from Game of Thrones. At least Goffrey has courage in his convictions.

Kytti Thu 07-Mar-13 09:33:33

mrsgeologis anyone that can link Game of Thrones to Mike the Knight rocks!

Joffrey is a git.

I also am deeply irritated by Mike the Knight. Galahad is cool, though. smile

TheRivieraKid Thu 07-Mar-13 09:36:05

Massive lol at the thought of Joffrey being friends with Dany's dragons grin

KatoPotato Thu 07-Mar-13 09:39:52

AIBU to think that the parents of the same three 'revolving door' patients on Get Well Soon should be investigated for Munchausens by proxy?

Joffrey was probably exactly like mike the knight when he was a preschooler.

KatoPotato Thu 07-Mar-13 09:42:27

Wahh sorry, meant to start a new thread! Hijack apols!

MrsLettuce Thu 07-Mar-13 09:42:51

Not seen Mike carrying out unnecessary pre-term csections on cats. NOt yet anyway.

They don't show those bits on cbeebies. Obviously. They try to keep it hushed up.

MrsLettuce Thu 07-Mar-13 09:59:14

grin

Imagine the scandal if it got out. It's just the kind of ammunition against the BBC the daily mail have been waiting for...

BearFrills Thu 07-Mar-13 10:52:48

I can see it now ...

Mike's mother, who lives in a £1.2 million castle funded by the taxpayer, keeps two dogs and spends most of her days counting blackberries. Mike's father is absent, lots not known if he contributes financially towards his family but, as his daughter lives in a modified tree stump in the garden, we'd say not.

I worry about poor mr cuddles. He often looks terrified. Imagine what they aren't showing us...

Antidote Thu 07-Mar-13 11:34:46

Weeping with laughter at the idea of Mike the Knight being Tory propaganda.

I'll have to tell DH. It might even persuade him to stop watching it (with DS obviously).

We have just discovered Ben & Holly, which I am very ambivalent about. But, it is 10mi.s long which means I get to shower in peace.

BelleEtLaBaby Thu 07-Mar-13 12:12:59

Antidote: my DH calls it Ben and Lobotomy, such is it's hypnotic effect on ds smile

noblegiraffe Thu 07-Mar-13 12:56:50

What the hell is the deal with the Vikings and jam tarts?

They decided that knights are cool so made a knight programme, but violence is bad so they've swapped everything remotely physical for something really weird.

PastaBeeandCheese Thu 07-Mar-13 13:08:31

He's an entitled little shit so yes, Tory propaganda is bang on.

Imagine AIBU to give my DS 2 dragons and a horse but only give DD a toad and a bike?

My ex CEO was called Mike. And he was an entitled overpaid little shit. I took great pleasure in showing selected colleagues pictures of Mike the Knight (while singing the tune) and saying "Guess who's the brave new hero?"

franbella5 Thu 07-Mar-13 13:40:59

He's a knob. Total knob. The only one that comes out of it with any credit is Trolly (doubt that's the right spelling).

Why would the BBC have this programme on- he sets such a bad example: arrogant, ignorant, entitled, spoilt, misogynistic, xenophobic. The latter is particularly strange to me; why represent another race as idiot barbarians- children may think that it's an ok thing to do.

So, as I said before, total knob!

Smartiepants79 Thu 07-Mar-13 15:46:49

We may possibly be reading too much into this....
However, agree about the Vikings. Extraordinary stereotyping and utterly historically inaccurate!
Why does the Dad NEVER come home?
Maybe he has a whole other family or a princess in a tower somewhere!

I agree about the Vikings. I cannot fathom why anyone thought that was a good idea.

There's a really weird episode where mike steals the Vikings' snowman and snowballs because he assumes they were going to do naughty things with them. And they get really upset because they just wanted to juggle. But mike never gets into trouble at the end (because, presumably, it's perfectly reasonable to assume those foreign types are up to no good - unless they can prove otherwise).
