the stupid big eyes

the irritating bad grammar - it's not endearing, it's stupid

the wrinkly skin instead of a nose

the girls are pink and purple and pathetic

cheebies? eh?

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 15-Dec-10 16:06:20

the dubbing of the children's voices

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 15-Dec-10 16:08:20

it's yogA

The random levitation

plinky plonky music

the fake plastic looking grass in the idyllic garden-with-waterfall

Now I'm struggling, I've only ever seen the odd minute while I scrabble for the remote but I hate it.

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 15-Dec-10 16:12:28

oh absolutely the music

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 15-Dec-10 16:14:03

when the girl piplings [shudder] roar like a lion, I am embarrassed for them

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 15-Dec-10 16:39:32

you know, despite only one response, that was amazingly therapeutic!

nomorecake Wed 15-Dec-10 16:53:22

all the mispronunciation and made up words.

yoga not yogo. (ds now 'corrects' me when i say yoga angry)

Butterfly not nara -flippin- bug.

children not bloody cheebies.

football not kicky thing.

Tomatoes NOT Plumatoes!!!!!!!

to name a few.

<<and breathe>>

the Joules wardrobe on the girl "cheebies".

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 15-Dec-10 18:42:06

makes you feel better, doesn't it?

it's the horrible noses that REALLY get me - no hole but still wrinkles up. Eeeewwwww.

Liv77 Wed 15-Dec-10 23:37:09

I find the children in it really irritating as well - luckily DS normally gets bored of it within a couple of minutes so at least I get to turn off the tv.
He's discovered my Flumps DVD this week - ah those were the days, proper children's telly.

I really hate the music when the cheebies come down the path- not sure why- just seems irritatingly triumphalist for some reason.

Their huge eyes and weirdly flat heads

The whining that goes on in every bloody episode- 'yojojo sad becuase he can't play the sodding recorder' or whatever

The fake plants-why not have real plants with flowers or fruit on them?

The cheebies bits of dialogue actually as the effect of making me hate children.

AntonDuBurk Thu 16-Dec-10 17:16:23

I made the mistake of saying I hated it in front of DD (4).

"It's not stupid, Mummy. It's BEAUTIFUL!"

I felt a bit bad blush

Rhian82 Thu 16-Dec-10 17:20:34

Oh yes the whining and the misunderstandings irritate me. Want to slap them.

TwentiethCenturyChristmasCarol Thu 16-Dec-10 17:21:46

Ohhhhh, I hate Waybuloo and have to dive for the remote every time it comes on. No reasons to add, it's just hideous. They never seem to take it off air either, it's on every time I switch on the telly, every single time (maybe).

MissFit Thu 16-Dec-10 17:33:16

I hate the way they talk about their feelings, and work things out, and are always so helpful and reasonable. I'd love them to have a bad day for once. Yojojo would wallop Noktok, LAu lau would have a tantrum and kick one of the cheebees and Dee-Li won't share any of her bloody strawberries and scoff them all herself. And then vomit all over the windchimes.

BellaBearisWideAwake Fri 17-Dec-10 07:48:55

Oh I'd love that

TALK ABOUT YOURSELF IN THE FIRST PERSON GODAMMIT

HarkTheTragicalyHipHeraldAngel Fri 17-Dec-10 07:53:43

Yes it grates on me!! I do think the blue one is cute tho blush

Ds loves it unfortunately.

Aggh and their own words, Cheebies, yogo ffs

BellaBearisWideAwake Fri 17-Dec-10 08:02:45

it would really make me happy if someone agreed with me about their seriously messed up noses.

mountainmonkey Fri 17-Dec-10 08:45:37

I wholeheartedly agree with all of the above.

BellaBearisWideAwake Fri 17-Dec-10 09:09:19

hands down my most hated cbeebies programme. and I don't usually moan. I LIKE cbeebies

Miggsie Fri 17-Dec-10 09:15:27

Not only do I loathe this programme but I am irrationally pissed off by the monkey character wearing pants.

I don't know why, the characters obviously have no genetals but the monkey wearing pants riles me even worse than the characters referring to themselves by name and not saying "I".

OK...and I hate the noses, please please can they die of asphyxia and/or their necks snap with the weight of those hideous enormous heads.

EauRudolph Fri 17-Dec-10 09:20:15

Yes to everything already said. I want to add 'peeka'. It's peekaBOO or peepo if you prefer, not sodding 'peeka'. And the soft, pathetic voices and giggling, grrrr.

LoveTheCarbs Fri 17-Dec-10 11:19:03

I agree with everyone - i hate, hate, HATE it! But DS seems to love it and stands glued to the telly when it's on. I especially hate the way they don't talk properly or use the proper words eg cheebies, yogo. What is that all about? It's just a terrible show. Bring back 64 Zoo Lane!

RockinRobinBird Fri 17-Dec-10 11:21:09

I absolutely agree with everything above. But DD lying on the floor pretending to be a fish is too cute, so I'll forgive them
