    Default I hate that programme

    I know we had a conversation about what children programmes get on our nerves but I really can't stand Bing. We have all just sat down after lunch and DS is cleaning up for me so I sat with the children to watch TV while I don't have to clean up. Bing was on and I must say I really dislike him... A whiny spoilt yapping character.... even hid voice annoys me... phew feel better lol

    Totally agree with you. If he's not whining about something, he's spoiling something that belongs to someone else

    I recorded a couple of episodes as one mum told me how good it was.

    She lied.

    It's awful! I let her child watch it after lunch one day as he'd been going on about it and couldn't believe how dreadful it was with that whining, baby voice. I'd rate it every bit as bad as Peppa Pig who is a bossy, spoiled brat!

    Abso-clucking-lootley. What, in the local vernacular, would be called " a proper mard-ar5e."

    Mister Maker............ a deeply scary character. He reminds me of a sort of oversized 15 year old who manages to get served in a seedy bar, can't hold his drink and starts talking too excitedly in the mistaken belief that he's really interesting and will 'pull' anytime soon. I hold him responsible for many a traumatic afternoon with the grandchildren demanding I spend 3/4 of an hour gathering together £20 of materials for them to spend 5 whole frustrating minutes reaching the inevitable point of disillusionment where they gradually realise (again) that his "minute makes" just don't work. Or, worse still, they do work, and I'm condemned to an evening wondering what to do with a life-sized cheeseburger made from washing-up sponges, and how I'm going to explain to Mrs B why the washing up didn't get done.

    Justin aka Mr Tumble aka Lord Tumble aka Justin's House aka Mr Tumbule aka Jake aka doG knows what else...... very irritating and far too ubiquitous.

    A lot of children's TV puts me in mind of that Groucho Marx line:-

    "I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a good book."

    That made me laugh out loud.

    Yesterday a five year old asked if we could have home made cinema with popcorn, the eight year old pops up Do you know I don't think I've ever seen your TV on.

    I don't mind Mr Tumble in Mr Tumble but can't stand Gigglebiz. I also don't mind Peppa Pig.

    I HATE boogie beebies and Granny Murrray and Balamory. Hate that pirate one too.

    There are some newish sweet little programmes but I can't think of their names. Some of them make me nostalgic when I see them again as they reminded me of simpler (but sleep deprived) times when DD was about two and there were no school runs to dominate my day.

    I don't mind Bing and I love Mr Tumble! Even like Balamory and Me Too but that's just cos they are Scottish lol. My son was obsessed with Balamory when he was wee, I still know every episode by heart 8 years later!

    The one I cannot stand is Curious George!!

    I've never seen Bing - I might watch it just to see what I'm missing out on!

    Anything Mr Tumble related makes me leave the room - when I only have my DD and DS here! We don't watch much TV when the mindees are here, generally a bit of Peppa if I'm desperate!

    That's a point: is there any programme on CBeebies which isn't either Scottish or stars Mr Tumble?

    I have a client parent whose background is Scots. He jokes that the producers of Balamory have tried to tick every 'diversity' box going, but wouldn't dare set it in his home town as the populace would beat them all up for "being different".

    I'd love to know which salon does that freaky thing with Julie Hoolie's hair..........................and how they subsequetly stay in business.

    I think Miss Hoolie probably goes to the hairdressers in the car park by the Tobermory distillery - maybe the staff like to pop round for a wee dram! I love Balamory (Tobermory) - we were going to move there about 10 years ago but it fell through.

    Tobermory? I always thought he was a Womble!

    Hey Dugee is very cute. Even my nearly 10 year old belly laughs at bits.

    I'm not keen on Bing. More so when his carer says "xxxxx; it's a Bing thing". DS is incredulous at this bit as the Bing thing is something applicable to everyone.

    Just a thought................

    If we're going to give the "Sulkiest Mammal on Children's TV" award to Bing, who gets the one for "Sulkiest Human on Children's TV"?

    I nominate the younger version of Tracy Beaker, with Tig* (the Scots lass who manages to be less appealing than her own spider) running a close second.

    Any other nominations................................?


    *I suspect even her parents realise this. Why else would they give her a name that is so descriptive when written sdrawkcab?
