And here it is, #101... Fill in the Blank Friday!

Photobucket

Alright, so I couldn't resist.  The author of one of my favorite blogs does a fun carnival called "Fill in the Blank Friday" and I LOVE today's topic.  So click her button above if you want to see the origins and here I go...

You get to answer the question yourself on YOUR blog and link it back to HER blog, or leave a comment for me on this post and so on (I think)... 

So here's this week's question:
The children's show I can't stand is_____________.
But the show I secretly like is _________________.



The show I can't stand is Spongebob Squarepants.  OMG give it a rest.  10 years of absolute crap. Mind-numbing, poorly animated, stupid garbage.  Ren and Stimpy couldn't have deficated and produced a bigger mound of poo.  AND IT'S EVERYWHERE.  He's not cute.  It's not funny.  It's gross and inappropriate and all around LAME.   I get offended when people give my kid Spongebob stickers.  I hate when it's playing in doctor's offices. And I despise that whenever my child sees it, he is totally mesmerized by it.  Ick.  Go away.

Also on my list of grating crap that I can't stand (which is very long and this list is by no means all-inclusive):  Dora, Diego, Special Agent Oso (though, only because the animation style really bugs me), actually, most Nick shows, and everything on Cartoon Network.  My kids aren't old enough to torture me with the Disney 'Tween shows, but when they are, add those to the list too.


BUT, the show I secretly like is Imagination Movers.  And not just because I have a giant crush on Mover Rich, but because it's a genuinely enjoyable show with good values and likable people.  I don't like many other shows that showcase adults, like The Wiggles (creepy) and PeeWee (shudder) but the Movers are just cute, friendly, fun dudes.  And their music is catchy and fun.  In fact, Imagination Movers is usually on when I get back from dropping Jack off at school so I leave the TV on while I nurse the girls and I rarely change the channel... partly because it's nice background noise, there's nothing else on the other channels, and a little bit because I like to watch Mover Rich the show itself.

On my list of likes: Little Einsteins, Micky Mouse Clubhouse (though annoying, has great concepts for learning), Word World, Super Why, Dinosaur Train, the Backyardigans, Thomas the Tank Engine and occasionally, Sid the Science Kid.


Phew, thank you for indulging my rant on Spongebob.

What about you?  Join in the blog hop or leave your opinions in my comments?  Do tell!

I really need to watch Imagination Movers! Most everyone has picked that one-never seen it.

Heidi said...

I had the EXACT same answers. I kept my rant on Spongebob to a minimum, but I agree with everything you said wholeheartedly. AMEN and BRAVO.
Oh and congrats on 100..no more fleas, maybe?

Ditto exactly what you said. I can't even begin to stand Sponge Bob and you know I love the movers. However, Jack does have a fondness for Dora so she sneaks into our family room often. Mickey's voice annoys me but has nice lessons and I'm a huge fan of Sid the Science kid. We're PBS and Disney people here.

Yes, I knew there was a reason I liked you so much!!! ;-) Spongebob irritates me to no end and I have never even seen the show! But anything that reminds me of Ren and Stimpy or Beavis and Butthead makes me want to puke.

Have to get my kiddo to watch Imagination Movers. I was more into than he was. I thought it was a better version of the Wiggles!

Thanks for playing girlfriend!

I am SO with you on Imagination Movers. Jordan (20 months) watches it every day and LOVES it. I like the catchy songs and find myself singing them while doing other stuff.

I'm not gonna lie. A couple of their songs are on my ipod.

I HATE HATE HATE Spongbob My kids KNOW that he is NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE. even if they are at a frinds house and its playing my kids will pipe up that it needs to be shut off.

I also do not allow any of those Disney TWEEN SHOWS. NO WAY NO HOW

Go ahead Sistas, let out your Spongebob hate! Use my blog for your outlet... we'll make a stand against him here and now :-)

Arizona Mamma said...

Yep...Sponge Bob, you annoying little creep. Can't stand him either.

Victoria said...

I too cannot stand Spongebob. It's the worst cartoon ever made. My kids know better to leave him on or I'll flip the frick out. Imagination movers is good. Hannah loves that show:)

Maura said...

I thought I must be the only one that is bothered by Sponge Bob being that he is everywhere:) Glad to here I'm not!

Christine:) said...

I think of you EVERY SINGLE TIME I see Mover Rich on TV. :) He is pretty cute, I have to say;)

Tanya said...
