...was on acid and should be shot?

(Not because he/she was on acid, just because it's so painfully dreadful)

poorbuthappy Tue 06-Sep-11 18:42:51

I've often wondered if the viewing experience would be enhanced if I was on acid. grin

EggyAllenPoe Tue 06-Sep-11 18:43:34

i love it. it's like the opiate of the toddler.

ruletheworld Tue 06-Sep-11 18:43:43

YANBU. Even my toddler detests it.

flowersinherhair Tue 06-Sep-11 18:43:46

YABU, it's a lifesaver sometimes grin , the only bad thing is that when you have watched so many episodes you find yourself actually enjoying it...worrying!

robotlollypopman Tue 06-Sep-11 18:43:52

It's better than Eastenders or Coronation Street but it's no Balamory.

Theas18 Tue 06-Sep-11 18:45:10

Isn't there always a rather trippy kids program on? Remember the original magic roundabout ?

whatsallthehullaballoo Tue 06-Sep-11 18:45:13

I think there has been worse - Teletubbies is my pet hate. The language is so irritating!

MangoMonster Tue 06-Sep-11 18:45:46

YABU, music is good and whoever it was is raking it in grin

VFVF Tue 06-Sep-11 18:45:51

Agreed! What the heck is with the Ninky Nonk? One minute it's this little thing going past Iggle Piggle at waist height, the next he is dwafed by it and can actually get inside!

And don't get me started on the blatant child abuse in the Pontipine family! Delicious food for Mr Pontipine. Delicious food for Mrs Pontipine. Runny grobbels for the children...

DD goes to bed before it finishes. Sometimes when I forget to turn the TV off I can hear the incessant squeaking going on downstairs while we're trying to have a nice quiet time upstairs.

It's not very relaxing!

Taking acid oneself might be the answer poor... <muses>

I love it blush

flowersinherhair Tue 06-Sep-11 18:49:59

Vfvf- my 3 year old dd calls ready brek grobbles, get funny looks in the supermarket grin

magicmelons Tue 06-Sep-11 18:50:34

YANBU but can we also add to that Me too. I fucking hate that programme.

tethersend Tue 06-Sep-11 18:51:41

I don't mind it.

Apart from the Pontipines, obviously. Right bunch of cunts.

ThePathanKhansWoman Tue 06-Sep-11 18:55:14

Tethers you can't say that about the Pontipines, they,ve got a lot on their plate you know.

Now the Wattingers they are a bunch of anti-social fuckers.

cwtch4967 Tue 06-Sep-11 18:55:41

My 4 year old is obsessed by it - he has autism - I preferred the Thomas phase!

BalloonSlayer Tue 06-Sep-11 19:00:43

The Pontipines are clearly in the Witness Protection Programme.

Why else would Mr Pontipine have a false moustache that keeps blowing off?

Only 2 of the children are theirs. The rest are MI6 special protection agents. That's why they are so hard to find: they are not hiding, they are deployed in covert surveillance.

picnicbasketcase Tue 06-Sep-11 19:01:12

Aww, but it's so nice to talk along to. 'Take the little sail down, light the little light...'

Although the Ha-Hoos would be fun to pop with a big needle.

nenevomito Tue 06-Sep-11 19:03:24

I cried when I found out I was expecting another child and realised that meant another 4 fucking years of ITNG.

SardineQueen Tue 06-Sep-11 19:04:08

I like it smile

The music is great
It keeps the kids quiet for half an hour

What's not to like?

HoHoLaughingMonster Tue 06-Sep-11 19:04:35

I love it. The theme tune at the end when Igglepiggle sails off in his boat has been known to make me cry blush

My mum says it is a metaphor for death confused

SardineQueen Tue 06-Sep-11 19:05:07

Mind you when I was little I liked the Clangers, the magic roundabout and Noggin the Nog.

So that might explain something.

MrsBuntyCuldeSacPariah2 Tue 06-Sep-11 19:12:08

I can cope with it, actually. I have a deep loathing for Waybooafuckingbloodyannoyingloo though. The repetitive music, the stupid floating creatures that waffle crap throughout, the whole of Nara should be blown up. Closely followed by Balamory.

Joining you in your hate of Waybaloo!!! angry
