Sometimes at the end of the day I zone out when the girls are asleep and realize I’ve been watching The Muppet Show by myself for 30 minutes. Not that the Muppets are awful or anything.

I had to ban Ni Hao Kai Lan in my house. The panda or whatever it is, is always whining about something. He doesn’t want to go in the pool, he lost his stuffed animal, he can’t win at musical chairs, bla bla bla. Every episode this effing thing was bitching about something!

I banned Yo Gabba Gabba. When they had “lessons” on don’t bite your friend… that was too much for me.

Can’t comment on Yo Gabba Gabba in general (came a little late for my kids, the Teletubbies generation), but as a mother I can tell you some kids really do bite their friends so it’s maybe not as crazy as it sounds. One of my kids did (at age 4), and it was out of the blue.

I am really disturbed by a lot of the kids shows now-adays.  I’m not even a parent (yet) and I can’t help but wonder where the shows like Barney and Little Bear went?!  Those were good shows for kids, and none of the over stimulation type with odd non-object characters like yo-gabba-gabba (what is up with the bumpy penis character?!)

@Quietserenity:  Right? I hope someone is paying that grandmother of theirs, because she seems to be on call 24/7.

@Quietserenity:  YES!  I’ve already decided that one is already banned from my house when baby arrives.  Just watching a couple of episodes with my niece makes me want to tear out my eardrums (I HATE Ruby’s voice), and I spend the entire time watching wondering where the heck their parents are.

I HATE Olivia and the weird hand puppet one. . I also don’t love Fresh Beat Band but then my niece (4 at the time) started saying she  didn’t like them because they were too “singy-songy” which is what I said one time so I felt bad and pretend to like them for her so she can again-  Now she said “Aunt Sugarsnap! Our favorite show is one”  *insert fake excited smile* 🙂 

 

I actually never minded Yo Gabba Gabba, it is catchy (and the kids I watch definitely bite each other at age 3)  I also like the party in my tummy “Do green beans want to go to the party in my tummy!?  YEAHHHH!!”   🙂

I’ve babysat my friend’s kids for years and I’m really surprised by the kid’s shows these days. Most of my friends wouldn’t allow shows like Ni Hao Kai Lan because of the whiny panda, Max and Ruby because Ruby was always bitching about her brother, Olivia was just annoying. Yo Gabba Gabba was good though. 

I’ve got one friend that tells me to turn on Spongebob while I’m watching her 3 year old, and that’ ALL he watches. I’m not a parent, but I don’t think Spongebob classifies as a kid show. It’s not educational at all and just, stupid.

My faves are Yo Gabba Gabba, Dora, Clifford, Sesame Street and if it’s ever on any more, Madeline.

My least favorites are Thomas the Train, Diego, and any of the Cartoon Network shows. Oh I hate them all.

One of the kids I used to nanny loves Yo Gabba Gabba. It made me want to puke. A lot of kid’s television is crap. Sorry.
