To find Bing Bunny downright infuriating?

It's everything; their odd world where all the grown-ups seem to be plush toys with absolutely no explanation as to why.
The way Bing behaves like a total shit but all the plush toys find him adorable and charming.
The panda who insists on whipping his pants off all over the place.
DS loves it but the whole programme drives me insane! I'm aware that I should probably get out more blush

YABU Bing is very cute. grin

It's a Bing thing- you wouldn't get it.

BoopTheSnoot Wed 30-Mar-16 17:30:22

I suspect that IABVU but it just winds me up for some reason blush

Yadnbu. He uses the wrong tense and no one corrects himangry

Lol. I'm with you! I didn't notice Pando constantly taking his shorts off at first, but once I did it's bugged me every since.

Soo glad DS has moved his obsession to Octonauts! :-)

I want to know where all the parents are.

Do they have some sort of strange lifecycle along butterfly lines, where Bing will enter a cocoon and shrink into a plush toy? Possibly more than once, given the size difference? Was Bing hatched from an egg?

Are the plush toys an entirely different species, enslaved and forced to care for baby giants (if Bing kept growing until adulthood he would tower over his plush toy carer)?

Have all the adults vanished in some terrible catastrophe, leaving Bing and his friends as feral / lonely children who've invented imaginary "parents" to keep them company?

I'm possibly totally overthinking this.

BoopTheSnoot Wed 30-Mar-16 17:46:46

Well Bing quite mercilessly offed a butterfly in a recent episode. Since they're all animals I would class that as murder. So he's clearly got form, and is more than capable of killing. Perhaps he disposed of his bio parents in a similar fashion so that he could live with Flop who lets him do whatever he wants? I've definitely overthought this.

StitchesInTime Wed 30-Mar-16 17:53:09

That homicidal theory would only work if all Bing's friends also offed their parents, and also any adult who wasn't the same species as Flop.

The only "adults" I've seen in Bing have been Flop-style adults.

Although this theory might explain Flop's apparently endless benevolent patience towards Bing. He never looks cross, no matter what Bing does.

BoopTheSnoot Wed 30-Mar-16 17:57:02

Exactly! And he can be really naughty. I'm not much of a shouter myself but I am not above going in the kitchen to mutter obscenities to myself when it all gets a bit much.
Flop thinks Bing can do no wrong. "Being a total turd. It's a Bing thing!"

Crabbitface Wed 30-Mar-16 17:59:55

YANBU. He is a whiny little shit. I think it's probably because his primary care giver is about half his size. I bet Flop really wants to drop kick him out the window but can't due to size ishoos so he had to pretend to love him.

GeezeLouiseBelcher Wed 30-Mar-16 18:02:01

Flop always reminds me of Jeremy Corbyn.

BoopTheSnoot Wed 30-Mar-16 18:09:02

From the episodes I've seen he has:
-Shoved another kid's shoe down the toilet
-Lost his shit and ruined play dates for the other children
-Broken other kids' toys
And much more. It all just gets laughed off. Bing is going to turn into one lousy adult.

Yabu, I love Bing. It's deep. Soon you will love the intricacies.

The childminder, the bossy older cousin, the hyper friend, the everlasting patience of Jesus Flop.

Mumberjack Wed 30-Mar-16 18:13:35

Flop is on Valium

ollieplimsoles Wed 30-Mar-16 18:15:07

Mumsnetting- its a bing thing!

Yabu op! I don't mind bing! DD seems to like it!

Mousefinkle Wed 30-Mar-16 18:19:31

My DC love it. So much so I got roped into buying the talking sula and 'my friend Bing' toys for Christmas which they adore.

I don't like the fact Bing uses incorrect words and never gets corrected. That's probably the only thing that irks me. The panda is adorable, by far my favourite character. I also don't understand why the grown ups are tiny. Maybe they grow smaller as they age.

GinAndColonic Wed 30-Mar-16 18:24:54

I read that the grown ups are smaller to see life from a perspective where the younger ones aren't able to be physically dominated. Can't be lifted up or down or chivvied along. It's a world where toddlers are kings.

BoopTheSnoot Wed 30-Mar-16 18:26:11

Gin can you imagine a world where toddlers ran everything? Terrifying!

ollieplimsoles Wed 30-Mar-16 18:26:29

I think the grown ups as toys thing is along the 'imaginary friend' lines. Maybe some kids put more adult personas to their toys?

Annarose2014 Wed 30-Mar-16 18:27:58

We call him "Bing The Ruiner" in this house.

I want to slap the fur off him.

Chinks123 Wed 30-Mar-16 18:29:54

Bing is one of the only ones I can actually sit with DD and watch, I love Amna the little plush (elephant?) and yes the little storylines can be quite interesting for me DD.

I aspire to be like flop, he has the patience of a bloody Saint. After the third 'clumbo' I'd of been a lot less calm grin

BoopTheSnoot Wed 30-Mar-16 18:32:20

After the third clumbo and the vacuum cleaner sucking up a toy car and subsequent drama, I think I'd have started adding gin to my coffee. Maybe that's Flop's secret?!

Chinks123 Wed 30-Mar-16 18:33:55

That's the exact episode that got me! "Do you think we should take the car off the table Bing?"... Yes he should of take it off ten pissing minutes ago. angry I think he's so tiny because of stress wink
