Yoko, Jakamoko, Toto - is it some sort of brain-washing plot?

Sometimes when I'm slumped on the sofa watching TV with DD in an active and instructive way this programme comes on. Somehow I have only ever heard the title song, then it's a blank until they sing the closing titles. I really have no recall at all of the intervening 10 mins. So what happens to me? Is it some sort of mass hypnotism so that the govt (or subversive forces at Cbeebies) can plant subliminal info in our minds?

I'm worried that in the not too distant future there will be a codeword spoken over the airwaves and millions of mothers and children will suddenly go blank-eyed and mindlessly set about doing something or other. To be fair I do already spend quite a bit of time blank-eyed and mindless, but at least I'm only under the thrall of two small children, not a Bond-style villan or Big Brother (as in the novel, not the tv programme).

Can anyone out there recall a storyline from this programme?

I feel the same about all children's programmes. The songs pull me in, then I find a total inability to concentrate.

It's the Scientologists. They're everywhere.

The thing is, I've been noticing this for a while so yesterday I decided to really concentrate on the storyline, if only to prove to myself that I was imagining the blank spot in my memory. But guess what, even though I tried very hard I still found myself coming to at the closing credits and have no idea what the story was.

It's scary stuff, really.

I have previously asked DS what the story was about, while the closing credits were still running, he just shrugged.

On a slightly different subject, I hurt my back a bit trying to dance like Justin at the end of Gigglebiz. Do you think I could make a personal injury claim against him and win?

I definitely thing cbeebies is up to something.

Waybaloo was, I believe, what made Jason Bourne lose his memory.

It will be like that scene in Omen III when all the prams start rolling down the hill.
