Bing on CBeebies is creepy

My little one is two next month and adores CBeebies so I find myself watching it ever day with her. Most shows I love and find absolutely adorable. However Bing creeps me out! Am I the only one? It's a world of children being raised by creepy little voodoo dolls with not one parent in sight LOL. Where did the parents go? Why are creepy voodoo dolls parenting these poor kids?

You're really on the tip of the chasm if weirdness. Have you seen Moon Baby and Collywobbles?
Apparently the parents are small because of the child's egocentric view of the universe. I prefer to think they're post apocalyptic genetic experiments being raised to defeat the alien invaders

There's a cracking episode, where Bing is playing with a butterfly and accidentally crushes it to death in his hands. They then bury it and paint pictures of butterflies to hang over its grave...
My two year old was completely unmoved by this, but my husband and I sat there going "what the fuck just happened???"😂

I read a theory somewhere (let’s be honest, probably on Mumsnet) about how Bing is set in purgatory, and Flop, Amma and Paget are tortured souls, required to stay and care for such irritating, self-centred twats animals like Bing until they’ve paid for their sins

I read a thread (was it here) about how annoying Bing was, and the creator came on and said to give Bing another try and it'll get better.
New episodes started this year and Bing really is a lot less whiny in those. DH still won't let the toddler watch him.
