dirtgirlworld - 'go get grubby' - except she doesn't!!

Anyone seen dirtgirlworld? It IS strangely compelling (think it's the mouths.), dd loves it and I like the premise. It's about a girl who likes being outside (creepy crawlies,growing things etc).
BUT it struck me, as she was singing a preachy song about 'Go get grubby' that she remains pristine throughout. Spooky airbrushed face, super clean wellies - doesn't this rather contradict their educational message?!

So AIBU to expect the main character in a show about getting grubby, to actually GET grubby?

I've not seen this so my judgement is YANBU

can a cartoon character be airbrushed?

watch it - you'll see.

agree with your op tho!

is mixture of real and animated, hence faces appear weirdly airbrushed.

ugh this programme freaked me out, the other characters were ok but the girl and boy are just too strange-looking.

Saw this advertised a few mins ago. Am unsettled by the title to say the least, it sounds like a porn movie.

i have seen it advertised, thought faces were just weird animation, now i know...urgh, freaky!

StealthPolarBear Thu 05-Nov-09 09:01:13

yes, i thought that - dirty girl!

Agree about the title. That was my reaction too.

I am hating it! And so is my DS1 who finds it terrifying and begs me to turn it off. [secret hooray!]

I think it's the real, toothy mouths floating in the lake of unreal plastic barbie flesh (shudder)

For me it's the flirty, pouty expressions on her face.

Not for the kids' benefit is it?

i hate it, it is so weird and really off putting to watch especially the worm with the face, i find it gross

theyoungvisiter Thu 05-Nov-09 10:13:55

DS calls it "Dirty Girl". Obviously he's completely unaware of the double entendre but still...

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Thu 05-Nov-09 10:36:58

I don't like the faces. Too adult. It's weird. biscuit

I agree, it is really bizarre, the Garbage-like music, the over sized faces and the dirt that isn't actually there. My 5 year old likes it, but I think it's just the novelty.

YANBU and it's like they've morphed faces to make them really attractive but it hasn't worked (sort of like people who have plastic surgery - should work but looks kinda odd!) hmm

The boy looks especially weird IMO.
