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
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.
