So basically what shows do your kids like watching but you can't stand?

Biggleton - boring and bad acting
Junkyard Rescue is shite and boring
Mr Maker triggers headaches with his horrible loud Arty Farty Party
Paw patrol is totally humourless and I don’t like the weird Mayor/chicken relationship
I also find Octonauts quite dull and worthy, and Captain Barnacle sounds too much like a poor man’s Hugh Laurie, it distracts me
I know this won’t be popular, but I find Duggie really try-hard and not as quirky as it thinks it is

But I quite like Bing, so what do I know?!

Omg Bing....my DD loves him but that whiny voice Goes through me every time I hear it.
Biggleton-just absolute cringe
The Cbeebies presenters singing
Baby Club-so patronising

Most of the shit on Amazon Prime that looks like someone made it in their lunch hour using Microsoft Paint and a flick book!

Everything bar SpongeBob Squarepants. Every. Fucking. Thing.

We're in Spain and Paw Patrol have American voices - we were weirded out a few years ago visiting the UK to hear it dubbed into British English confused didn't make it any more palatable.

I've hated:
Peppa Fucking Pig
Chuggington
Thomas the Titting Tank Engine (bloody narrator, proxy fat controller, all dull as bumholes)
Ben and Holly, just yeuk

I could, however, watch Pingu until the cows come home grin

My DD is a teen now but I used to love watching kids TV with her. Favourites included Scooby Doo, Pingu and Come Outside. Later on I enjoyed shows such as The Dumping Ground and I Carly grin

Back to what you asked though I absolutely detested Balamory for some reason!! What about you OP?

Peppa Fucking Pig, and what the hell has happened to Postman Pat??
It's gone all high-tech sometime in the last 20 years and the Greendale I used to love so much is no more.

Horrid fucking Henry

My kids are all in school now so I love Gumball. I can relate to their family a bit too.much.

Bing needs a slap. I like Pepper pig but she is very rude and entitled.
Paw Patrol just makes me think WHY?? Why doesn't Ryder go to school?? Why is a chicken up a tree / no squid jerky / someone's used the last sheet of loo roll a bloody emergency? Why does a ten year old solve all the adults issues? Where does Ryder get his money? Does he have a sideline cannabis farm in the lookout loft?? Too many questions. Me and Dh ponder these things every time dd watches it.

Bing Bastard Bunny and his whiney little voice. Thought DS had grown out if it but no. He still wants to watch. Is painful. He does something really naughty and then Flop goes 'oh it's no big thing Bing. I'm silently screaming at the telly 'he killed a fucking butterfly the murderous little bastard it is a big thing!!'

And breathe.

@peanutfoldover amen to that. They are the Thunderc""ts in our house!

GlennBulb Tue 14-Jan-20 14:28:57

Steven universe I just Don't get it?

GlennBulb Tue 14-Jan-20 14:29:54

@Legoandloldolls I love gumball too!

Anything on Disney Channel - it's banned. The Thundermans in particular.

When they were younger bloody Ballymorey used to make me cry inside.

inwood Tue 14-Jan-20 14:31:48

@GlennBulb I'm going to have to steal that!

Fucking waffle dog. Absolute shite.

KidCaneGoat Wed 15-Jan-20 21:17:43

Tinpo. Can’t bear to look at it. It’s ugly, they all seem like right knobs. And also it’s pretending to be all problem solvey engineeringy but is just made up bullshit solutions.

AutumnGlitterBall Wed 15-Jan-20 22:13:49

Waffle the Wonder Twat. Why is there a tunnel between their houses?? Why is dad such a wet rag? Tell the neighbour to sod off. Did she consult them when she got the cat?

Justin. Was a great day when the three year old announced ME NO LIKE JUSTIN’S HOUSE. The only problem is it keeps my times for getting ready in the morning. We’re late if we see the end.
