Barney really freaks me out, and I have never let Dirty Delete watch it. Yo Gabba Gabba used to be a little iffy for me, but I actually love it now.

The Wiggles and the Teletubbies freak me out. Actually. Most kids shows today are pretty awful. What ever happened to Wishbone, the Magic School Bus, Winnie the Pooh and the Gummy Bears?!?!

@chasesgirl:  I loved Wishbone, I think that it really helped spark an interest for literature.

Toopy and Binoo are like a bad acid trip. Not a fan of that show at all.

Banned in our house: Doodlebops, the Wiggles, Barney, Yo Gabba Gabba (that one really freaks me out for some reason). Oh, and those Boohbah things! I have a weird thing about puppets. I can handle Sesame Street but some of the newer ones… No thanks. I’m glad my kid is old enough that she likes shows with real people.

None really freak me out but I can’t stand the Wiggles. I’m so lucky that my 2yo’s favorite is Winnie the Pooh! I could watch that silly bear all day.

Blues Clues kind of freaks me out…. not the same way as some of the others, but it’s so painfully boring and the guy doing the acting is horrible.  Last time I babysat, we made it through about 5 minutes before turning it to something else.

I’ve had to pre-record all shows for Dirty Delete, it seems like they get replaced with junk. Her favorite show Jack’s Big Music Show was cancelled 🙁

We like the old school episodes of Sesame Street, she’s not into Winne the Pooh on tv, but she adores the books, I think Yo Gabba Gabba is cool because the songs are catchy and retro and they have (I feel) good musical guests like Devo and The Aquabats.

She’ll watch Dora the Explorer once in a blue moon but it doesn’t really hold her attention like shows with music (instruments, bands, singers) do. I can’t deal with hearing “Everybody SCREAM!” 80 times in 20 minutes. She’d really be content just watching music videos.

I LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba and I don’t even have kids, haha. Yeah the show’s creator is the lead singer of the Aquabats, I love the music and the guests–The Anthony Bourdain one is pretty hilarious.


Not a show but remember Gmork (the werewolf) from The Neverending Story? Holy Ballz that shit still scares me.
