Kids' tv shows

What do you hate most about kids' shows? I dislike unrealistically drawn cartoons. I especially dislike it when a kid blows up a balloon and it floats. What about you?

I dislike illogical premises. I hate how the Island of Sodor is teeny but somehow necessitates all these complex interconnected railways. I dislike how they terrible workers don't get fired. I don't like manic music or crazy loud gogogogo shows because even I find them over stimulating.

I also really dislike Dora. "I'm going to climb Mount Everest, Mother, and I'm certain since you glorify child abandonment and neglect, you'll tell me to have fun and go with Boots and my screaming map." "Go have fun, dear"

Re: Kids' tv shows

I hate vioces that are clearly adults talking like children.

I want to scream when I see peppa pig and give her disgusting family a bath.

I want to stab my ears when I hear Cailou speak. And I hate cartoon characters that whiiiiiiiiine

Caillou was the one I was watching when I posted ;-) . I pretty much want to bash his bald-headed face in with my fist every time I hear him.

I hate when cartoon animals have other cartoon animals as pets.
It annoys me when there are no parents around and the kids just go on random adventures. Like, Dora, Max and Ruby, Cat In The Hat..., etc.

My daughter is obsessed with Caillou!
I hate that he's 4 and is bald! And that his sister speaks so well in some episodes but in others not so well.

I hate that when there are parents involved they make them out to be idiots- that the children are all smarter then....

We don't watch any mentioned so far. Lol and the ones we watch have parents that are pretty involved (daniel tiger, frances) or no parents needed (peep, ygg, wonder pets).

What I hate about kid shows that I've seen in passing like at the dr appts is parents portrayed as stupid. My kids will never watch shows (on a regular basis) that portray parents as clueless.

I don't like it when characters are mean spirited. I've banned a number of shows but I'm getting close to banning Handy Manny. I don't really like the jokes that come of the Mr. Lopart character or some of the things the tools say.

On the other hand, Postman Pat (and his black and white cat) is very courteous but he runs around doing things that no post officer would do, like jumping in the helicopter to rescue a cow from the side of a 15 foot high cliff. It's so unrealistic that it bothers me.

Totally creeps me out too. I wish DD never found it on Netflix.
