As long as there will be children’s television programming, there will be the parental eternal questions…
…why is Caillou bald?? seriously…his 2-year-old sister Rosie has a full head of hair!
…why did they make Dora’s dad look like a serious pedophile?
…where the hell are Max and Ruby’s parents? there’s bunny scout leader and grandma…but no parents to speak of.
…how come every character on FranklinÃ‚Â is called by what they are…Bear, Beaver, Snail…but Franklin has an actual name. why?
…what is Uniqua? all the other animals on the Backyardigans are something….Pablo is a penguin, Tasha’s a hippo, Tyrone is aÃ‚Â moose, and Austin is a kangaroo…but what’s Uniqua? and why is she the only one to not really be anything?
…and i’m not even going to touch Boobah. that one is a mystery in itself.
…what on earth is happenng on Little Bear? no, seriously. little bear’s dad fishes with a fishing pole, while wearing a suit, but his brother Rusty fishes by swiping at the fish with a paw and throwing them up the river bank.Ã‚Â sometimes they behave like animals…but sometimes they behave like humans.
and the one i asked this morning, while Isabella was singing along to Wonderpets…
…why would they give a character a speech impediment? ming ming needs some sewious speech therapy. Is this not going against what we try to teach our children?? my 4-year-old doesn’t say his “r”s…and i really want him to learn to say them. i don’t want him to start thinking he can use the “ming-ming excuse”
“but mommy….ming ming says it…”
what about you? what bothers you about the shows your children watch??
