Thinking for slapstick which short episodes.

Mr Bean
Young Sheldon (some.more grown up themes)

DismantledKing Thu 25-Nov-21 19:04:50

Laurel and Hardy?

Outnumbered?

I will probably get absolutely flamed for this but my 9 year old absolutely adores Friday Night Dinner blush - obviously don’t let them watch it if they don’t understand re bad language and not repeating things, but it’s pretty tame really and Ds loves Jim the creepy weird neighbour.

Haha mine too!

Mine would have loved it at that age as well. They used to love Black Books, Father Ted, and Mighty Boosh too.

there have got to be some age appropriate, not awful to watch comedies on cbbc surely?

Some Mothers Do Ave Em is basically an earlier version of Mr Bean. He might enjoy old episodes of Bewitched too.

There’s a few outdated attitudes in them that might need a conversation.

I love So Awkward on CBBC.
I'm 46 blush

DismantledKing Thu 25-Nov-21 19:18:46

Old episodes of Tom and Jerry, from the 1940s? They’re constant slapstick, and the dvd’s have edited out the stuff that’s dated very badly (you know what I’m talking about)

TheMarzipanDildo Thu 25-Nov-21 23:53:21

Ghosts? Some rude humour but I think that would go straight over a nine year olds head.

I think you could probably get away with Father Ted too.

Myneighboursnorlax Thu 25-Nov-21 23:55:06

Chucklevision? It’ll look quite dated now, but very Mr Bean/slapstick style comedy

TheMarzipanDildo Thu 25-Nov-21 23:55:13

Sorry, just realised they are 7! Maybe not then.

@DismantledKing
Yes she's ok with those old school cartoons, enjoyed pink panther too!

Most other suggestions will need to wait at least 4 years imo! She's very sheltered and only 7!!

Chuckle brothers is a good shout though....will try that!

Thanks all smile

My son loved Hannah Montana and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody at that sort of age. Not sure if they're available now. Also, Simpsons, Top Gear and Father Ted. I loved Bewitched and the Monkees repeats in the 70s at that age. Also The Munsters! Very ancient the last 3, though!

TangledUp789 Fri 26-Nov-21 02:03:49

I don’t know if she’d be a bit young to enjoy this, but Keeping Up Appearances perhaps? It’s all pretty tame and there’s plenty of slapstick humour.

Chucklevision is the best recommendation so far though. I still really enjoy watching it even though I’m in my thirties! blush There’s loads of episodes on YouTube.

PrettyPlatapus Fri 26-Nov-21 02:07:12

I loved bewitched and Monkees too! (Repeats mind, was not born the first time round!)

Came on to say Keeping up Appearances.

Certain episodes of Seinfeld, DS loves it.

@TangledUp789 @immersivereader

Yes! How could I forget about Mrs Bucket!
