As my name suggests, I am a Ben & Holly fan, I like Mrs Elf but Nanny Plum is my fav. Is she the best? Any other contenders out there??

Oh I've just remembered how much I loved the Wonder Pets when mine used to watch them.

Dora the Explorer is a PITA.Always bloody repeating stuff.

Morph
Shirley the Sheep

Best of all
Brian the Snail (Magic Roundabout for youngsters)

Annoying - Tracy Beaker for not getting adopted after one series.

Actually, the character that has stayed with me the longest is Supergran.

OMG! Super Gran - I vaguely remember watching that on Saturday night before Bullseye. Off to google it now...

Teddy Ruckspin - he was so cute and loved his little adventures. Which also reminds me of the Gummy Bears - bouncing here and there and everywhere... there are so many good ones!!

Also Waybaloo sucks balls

Ivor the Engine gets my vote, though Morph also a good call. <shows age>

mr noseybonk has to be one of the scariest.

Jamie ... Jamie..... Jamie and the magic torch... has to be one of the best

Mrs Popoff from Rentaghost.

Dobbin the fine steed from Rentaghost, tied in first place with Idris the dragon from Ivor the Engine.

Honourable mention goes to Professor Yaffle from Bagpuss, with a very special mention for Dick from the famous five.

Nanny Plum is a fucking legend.

That woman from 'Come Outside' is vile. Especially the shit episode.

jonny Briggs or the boy from woof

I liked Calm Down from Stop it and Tidy Up

Obv. Tucker

All Of Them from Press Gang. All. Of. Them. Especially Colin.

A rather fat feathery owl called Sage.

From The Herbs.

Sweep from sooty and sweep.

Rattus Rattus from horrible histories. hes especially funny in HH gory games with Dave Lamb. great double act.

Without a shadow of a doubt it is Shaun the Sheep. All my adult friends adore him.

Sweep is ace, really mischievous, Soo is quite a boring goody-goody. Roland from Grange Hill, Max from the Tweenies - a big kid at heart who loved a nap whilst looking after children. Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble, Grommit - obviously the brains of the house, Dr. Bob and Beaker from the Muppets.

DumSpiroSpero Thu 09-May-13 11:14:05

From my own childhood - Bagpuss, Mr Ben and the Flumps, especially Pootle.

From DD's - Slugsy & Primrose from Fifi and the Flower Tots, Daddy Pig and Charlie & Lola.

DH's fave would be Snoopy - we used to collect Peanuts memorabilia and have as 4ft tall one in the loft!grin

I'm with you OP. As soon as I saw the thread title I thought Nanny Plum. We're going to see Ben & Holly on stage in a few weeks, I can't wait, er, I mean DS is very exited about it. I know the actors won't be the same people who do the character voices, but still.

Worst current is dull, patronising Driver Dan.

From way back when, Bagpuss was the best.
