Childrens TV – I have a serious love/hate relationship with it. I love it because it gives me 5 minutes (OK, half an hour) break to either sit and have a cup of tea or get some much needed house chores done and for that, I am forever grateful for but I also hate it because there are some programmes which K loves that literally drive me up the wall. I’ll be honest, I’ve labelled this my top 5 most annoying programmes but I could easily label it my top 20 most annoying programmes but lets not be too harsh! In no particular order…
Jesus that pig is bossy! And mardy! (northern term) and lets not forget a little bit cheeky. The bing bong song gets stuck in your child’s head and they end up singing it for the rest of eternity! Also, Daddy Pig is a useless baffoon. Hats off to Miss Rabbit though, that woman is a grafter!
Two words: Justin Fletcher. Is it just me that thinks he’s creepy!? Especially when Mr Tumble appears. *shudders*
In the night garden
Why does no one speak properly in it? What is Macca Pacca? and why he is so obsessed with cleaning? Also, why do the tomblyboos kiss each other and pull their trousers down?? Strange, strange programme.
Topsy and Tim
Not a programme I completely despise except for one minor thing – Topsy and Tims mum and all of her perfectly twintastic smugness. Patience of a saint and not at all realistic.
What’s the story in Balamory? No one cares. The singing and dancing is cringe worthy. Thankfully there are no new episodes anymore but the downside is that they just repeat the old ones meaning that we have to endure the weird lad in a kilt awkwardly dance in front of his pink castle.
Are there any childrens TV programmes that really annoy you? Can you relate to this? I’d love to hear from you!!
