Baby Jake & Summer Song

(28 Posts)

Does anyone else think the makers of some of the CBeebies programmes are running out of ideas. Baby Jake seems to be a bit of a cop out, using a baby's head on an animated body, plus it's incredibly annoying.

Also, does anyone know why there is no CBeebies Summer Song, instead they seem to be showing the songs from The Green Balloon?

I wondered this too. Baby Jake = crap, and the recycling song is getting right on my tits now.

Mind you, my 2 year old seems mesmerised when Baby Jake does his babbling and squeals with delight. I find it annoying.

They could have just brought back the Battersea Park Summer song, even though it's a few years old.

I read on Twitter that they recorded a new summer song a few weeks ago.

Baby Jake is very odd. Is it meant to be set in a nursery or just a very large family? Dd loves it, however.

I read an article last week about Baby Jake. They were describing it as 'cutting edge' or something equally silly hmm but it's a real life baby and his older brother apparently.

I've not seen it yet but ds2 (19 months) is fascinated by the adverts.

Baby Jake is downright spooky although DD loves it hmm

Destest the GBC in all its various guises. The only thing that keeps me going through the hot summer that I hate is the summer song sad

Have recorded Baby Jake and the kids are only just watching it for the first time this evening. DD (4) loves it and even DS (7) is saying he likes it.

Therefore it's a hit with me, it's getting harder to find programmes which they both like now. smile

DS1 watched Baby Jake this morning on iplayer - he is nearly 5. He loved it and asked me when it was on again! I thought it was quite a sweet little programme.

I think it is set in a very large family and I love the fact they named their children following the alphabet - genius grin

they have just been filming the new summer song in my local park...I read it in the local paper!

Ds(5) insisted on watchin baby Jake on iPlayer last night. It was nearly as annoying as the Green Balloon Club

My DS3 aged 2½ loves Baby Jake. I even saw out of the corner of my eye DS1 (11) and DS2 (8) watching it. In fact DS2 ran around the house earlier this evening annoying me singing "goggy goo-ah" over and over again. Sigh.

DS is 19 months and loves baby jake. Personally it freaks me out but he sits giggling the whole way through it!

suzikettles Sat 09-Jul-11 20:58:39

Ds loves Baby Jake. He's memorised the songs and is singing them all the time.

I bloody loathe it.

I hope they have dance routine for the new summer song. I was really good at the old one grin.

I despise Baby Jake. It freaks me out and my (almost) 2 year old, who was very articulate and brilliant with her speech, is now walking around my house saying "goggy geeyah." Annoyed much.

MonaLotte Thu 14-Jul-11 10:26:13

It is very irritating but DS seems to like it. I find the "Baby Talk" very annoying, but the actual Baby is cute.

I prefer Show Me Show Me, it reminds me of Playschool, you can't beat Floella Benjamin!

Moodykat Thu 14-Jul-11 10:28:54

Oh, couldn't find this thread when I just started mine!

superv1xen Thu 14-Jul-11 10:29:50

oh god how annoying is baby jake hmm

my dc (2 and 5) LOVE it.

MonaLotte Thu 14-Jul-11 10:30:10

Have you just watched it too? It is quite bad isn't it!?

happyhorse Thu 14-Jul-11 10:46:00

Is the recycling song the one with bloody Lily-Rose singing "we're the children of tomorrow"? Surely they're the children of today? This really pisses me off. I seriously need to get out more.

Mollythulu Sat 16-Jul-11 22:48:07

The recycling song (and other GBC 'gems' - annoying twatty bratty stage school kids, who just make me want to hit them.)
Baby Jake - quite sweet, but what's with the 'goggy geeyah' - seriously - what is "yukky yukky yoggy, doo doo dee, bra bra bra, beep beep you'll see!" all about? Wtf? And the line 'hope you like to do it too' seems a bit desperate, but hey, it's better than 'i can cook', which the kids hate - DS3 (7 months) and DS2 (2) love it, so it can't be that bad!

BootyMum Sat 16-Jul-11 23:45:27

Who is Lily-Rose? Is she the dead eyed slightly creepy blonde moppet?

I did wonder if she was a BBC Exec's daughter hence her leading role...

Doesn't seem to have much charm or talent imo.

BootyMum Sat 16-Jul-11 23:46:15

Oh yes, and goggy geeyah et al is seriously irritating.

ReshapeWhileDamp Sun 17-Jul-11 10:07:30

Mollythulu - yes, why are the GBC children so ghastly-stage-schooly, when there are loads of 'normal' children on cbeebies who aren't? Lily-Rose is the one who annoys me the most, though I shouldn't say anything really, since when all's said and done, she's just a little girl with pushy parents, poor child.

MrsChemist Sun 17-Jul-11 10:17:36

I always feel guilty when I think "God the GBC kids are irritating."

They are though.

Also hate Baby Jake, but DS is mesmerised.
