Does anyone else think Bing is supposed to have special needs? His behavior seems "younger" than his peers. Aibu? Reading too much into it? In need of a life?!

Oh, I just thought it was badly observed. Maybe....

heyduggeeallday Tue 04-Apr-17 09:22:01

I just thought maybe he was? The carers seem to treat him slightly differently, more patient and explain things more clearly and slowly. Maybe its teaching kids that some people are "different" to them

I don't think he's meant to have SN. I think he's just an annoying little twat made worse by flop being an over indulgent parent who's storing up trouble by making out everything bing does wrong is just a 'bing thing'. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

<and relax>

I've wondered this, Bing does seem different to the other children. I also thought this about Slowcoach from Wanda and the Alien, he has wonky ears and is a different colour to all his siblings, has a different way of speaking and as the name suggests is very slow. DP disagrees that he is meant to be SN but does think it serves to teach children about respecting differences in ability.

I agree with Laiste.
Everyone in Bing is annoying. but not as bad as Topsy and Tim

I think Pando seems slower and I wondered if he had special needs, but then noticed that he's much more able/brave physically than Bing. I think it's just to show that all children have different strengths and weaknesses.

Pando keeps taking his trousers off!! He's also very energetic! And what the hells a Clumbo!!? It is very annoying. I always thought flop was a minder?! To me Bing always seems over sensitive to things

I can't stand Bing. He's so whiney! He seems to have no patience when things go wrong. And I agree with PP that flop totally enables this behaviour! Aaahhhhhhhhh!

Grrrrr bing. Annoying little git. Speak properly!!

heyduggeeallday Tue 04-Apr-17 11:32:20

When he fell off the skate board! "are your elbows ok? Are your knees ok?" So annoying and fucking whiny!!!

WellErrr Tue 04-Apr-17 11:46:16

Bing is banned in our house because he's such a wet fucking lettuce.

ShowMeWhatYouGot Tue 04-Apr-17 11:56:04

I think he's just a jerk

I also dislike tipsy, Tim, Tony Welsh, and their smug mother.

ShowMeWhatYouGot Tue 04-Apr-17 11:56:37

And Wooly and tig is banned, it's the worst

WHY does Pando whip his shorts off the second they get to the park? What is this teaching children?! And why does it bother me SO MUCH??

Whatever Flop is taking to make him so fucking zen the whole time, all through Bing's latest whiny ineptitude, I want some.

scampimom Tue 04-Apr-17 12:13:28

Abney and Teal creep me out as well. That bastard dog plays the exact same bastard tune on his cunting accordian EVERY TIME and the voiceover man says something feeble minded like, "Toby Dog played a finding sticks song", when it's the SAME SONG!!

Ahem. Think I might need a little lie down and a spoon of perspective...

LilQueenie Tue 04-Apr-17 12:19:34

I also thought Bing had SN. However remember it was a book before it was brought to tv so perhaps its just the fact it seems strange when done in tv format.

I was a Topsy and Tim fan as a child and still love it but not the mum. Not since watching her in Eastenders. Its weird.

Eclecticmama Tue 04-Apr-17 12:23:28

i thought you were referring to bing the search engine blush i was going to agree that bing is bloody useless

Porpoiselife Tue 04-Apr-17 12:28:44

Bing isn't watched in our house. Can't stand it.

Tweenies also banned. When that's on it sounds like a lounge full of whiny toddlers and I noticed when mine started watching it they started being whiny! So It's banned. Whining has ceased .

PuntCuffin Tue 04-Apr-17 12:33:51

Me too eclectic. And i agree, Bing is useless.

<Breathes large sigh of relief that DS are both too old for CBeebies> then remembers the horror that is endless YouTube videos.

Bing is the youngest of all his friends. In the episode where they do the show in the park, they go in age order and he is the finale because he is the youngest. I love the rainbow song.

Sandsnake Tue 04-Apr-17 12:40:44

Another Bing hater here. He is unspeakably whiny and has absolutely zero resilience.

I've got a lot of time for CBeebies in general though. From what I can work out most of its programming seems to be geared at persuading toddlers to be slightly less of a bastard.

ambereeree Tue 04-Apr-17 12:59:26

Still not as bad as grandpa in my pocket...

CocoLoco87 Tue 04-Apr-17 14:51:03

Don't get me started on waybuloo. Cheebies and nok tok and all that malarkey. Infuriates me! I've only turned the tv on so Katie can show me how to cook grin 1 minute too early and I'm subjected to total nonsense!
