Why is one of Nina's Neurons (Luke) Jamaican or maybe Ghanaian? All the others are from her native Scotland. Is he perhaps the token Neuron?

hmm never thought about it before. ham fisted diversity attempt?

I find Baby Budd reeeeeeeeeeeally annoying.

one of them is deffo english.

AnyFuleKno Mon 02-Nov-09 00:06:03

Oh yes there's a male one that's english...olly? why the hell do I know that, I hate myself

Monadami Mon 02-Nov-09 00:18:45

Really. Olly is the female one? I thought she was Scottish too, must watch more closely.

haha I was wrong:

Luke is the sight neuron. He's the group leader, but in a very laid back and relaxed fashion. He is very cool!
Belle is the sound neuron. Her character is quite loud and slightly bossy, but still likeable.
Felix is the touch neuron. He is slightly sensitive, speaks in a deliberate, posh accent. Fussy about his appearance, he regularly fixes his hair.
Ollie is the smell neuron. She is very sweet, self assured and a bit of a goth. Though her little brother, Bud, can bug her at times, she loves him dearly.
Bud is the taste neuron. He is the baby of the bunch, and talks in a slightly childlike manner. Bud oozes enthusiasm and is easily excited by whatever is going on.

that's from cbeebies by the way, cringey prose or what

Think I might start watching ITV's version of CBeebies, which starts tomorrow.

<geek alert>

I always get really annoyed by Nina's neurons. I mean, they're Nina's neurons - they should all be female and Scottish, shouldn't they? Unless she's some weird chimera, which, come to think of it...

My son looks like baby bud.

It's scary.

Flightattendant Mon 02-Nov-09 08:24:49

I agree Luke is of an accent. Not sure what accent.

MrsTittleMouse Mon 02-Nov-09 09:41:53

Doesn't Luke have an accent because "Luke" only sounds like "look" if you say it in a Jamaican accent? Just like Baby (taste) Bud, Feel-ix, Belle (bell) and Olly (olfactory). Just very poor puns!

And I still say that they should all be girls as they would all have two X chromosomes! grin

One of the neurons is

her off Mistresses

and another is

him off Gimme Gimme Gimme

and another is

this bird who used to be in Casualty

Fascinating eh? grin

I do think Nina's does very well for someone who only has five neurons, mind you.

One of them, the pink one is a scouser

I can never work out whether the one of them is supposed to be Jamaican or Geordie or perhaps both? It never settles as an accent IFSWIM? Just sounds bad.
