I mean they break into peoples homes, pop their bubble wrap or wrap the house in wrapping paper or move peoples belongings or let the dog on and out.

I imagine they account for half of suspected hauntings

Peek A Boo seems to be some poor Cinderella / illegal immigrant clearly scared of them.

Bing gets a lot of abuse but the TW's are the most terrible and banned of words - NAUGHTY!!! The fact their parents are with them too...

You wouldn't want to sit next to them in a restaurant or bus - imagine the MN posts!!!

So Aibu to think they're the naughtiest of all the shows?

They are absolute terrors. And that song gets stuck in my head.
But DD's little face lights up when it comes on, so can't say no...!

I cant get passed the lyrics. It sounds like "great big poo" blush

Yes! Yes! Thank you, so glad to know I'm not the only one with too much time on my hands alone in thinking this. They're the original ASBO family.

It seems like someone was tripping on LSD when they came up with the whole idea / design etc.

I really feel sorry for Peekaboo too, it has it rough.

Don't care much for the family's diet either. Constant fruit tea must mean that the Big Red Boat stinks to high heaven.

They are THAT family aren't they? Tats why they live in a boat, because I bet they keep getting evicted.

Tats why they live in a boat, because I bet they keep getting evicted. I think you're probably right.

No no Bing is so much worse. Flop makes me want to gauge my eyes out "are you ok Bing?" Oh god stop OVER parenting! So irritating. Twirly woos I like because they're rebels.

They are holy fucking terrors.

But the Twirly Wood's are gonna end up in jail. If Chickedy stole a lollipop Great Big Hoo would eat it not take it back

Peekaboo is the Twirlywoo equivalent of a house-elf - cleans up and tries desperately not to be seen.

They are little terrors though aren't they. I'm constantly humming the theme though, DD loves them. She has a Toodloo soft toy that I live in fear of losing.

Side note: did you know it's narrated by Nurse Crane off Call the Midwife?

On the other hand, it's handy for getting rid of broken toys: "Oh, no, DS, I haven't seen your noisy fire engine. Maybe the Twirlywoos came and took it?" <wide eyes and shocked expression>

BelfastSmile Thu 07-Dec-17 12:41:22

@MustBeThursday WHAT?! I did not realise that! She sounds quite different!

MustBeThursday Thu 07-Dec-17 12:52:44

@BelfastSmile I know. I couldn't believe it either! I recognised Cynthia doing the shopkeeper in Bing, but I'd never have known about Nurse Crane if I hadn't been looking her up after watching Caledar Girls.

I think Peppa pig is bratty and spoilt! 😂

LloydColeandtheCoconuts Thu 07-Dec-17 13:04:19

What about Roly? From Hey Duggee? He’s very sweet but not the person you’d like to be partnered up with in school. Way too loud! At least Chicakadee and Chick have cunning.

LivingDeadGirlUK Thu 07-Dec-17 13:33:25

Glad I am not the only one who thinks the twirlywoos are dicks!

LittleMe03 Thu 07-Dec-17 13:37:50

I can't watch hey duggee in the same way anymore... since my partner pointed out something about the shape of his head and what it looks like 🙈

Jaynesworld Thu 07-Dec-17 13:52:07

Littleme what does his head look like??

OhOurBilly Thu 07-Dec-17 13:54:45

I can't abide Peter rabbit. The whole thing gets on my nerves, AND they're setting a terrible example. Pinching Mr McGregors fruit, ruining fences. Thieving and vandalising shit all over the shop. Little furry ASBO knobheads. At least in the books they got baked into a pie and learned their lesson!

CeciliaBartolli Thu 07-Dec-17 14:39:09

Peter Rabbit and his kin did NOT get baked in a pie.
They nibbled their way out of the sack.
Maybe there was a picture which confused you...

OhOurBilly Thu 07-Dec-17 14:46:48

No, I know they didn't actually/ get baked in a pie cecilia if they did they wouldn't still be twatting about robbing radishes and whatnot. I think what I'm actually misremebering is the tale of Tom Kitten. I should go check, I've got them upstairs somewhere grin

It was Mr. Rabbit -- Peter's dad -- that ended up in the pie.

Totally wasn't traumatized by that one as a child!
