Shows my Kids Watch that are KIlling me

A show my kids watch that make me want to poke my eyes out…

So you know the deal if you have little kids.. you watch what they watch.. Unless you limit T.V. to one hour a day and to be honest I don’t know one soul that has more then two children that could/would /should do that just for sanity reasons. For all my readers that have older children I know you can commiserate.. You had Barney back in the day. But for some reason I have to talk about this show….so here we go…


Yo Gabba Gabba


Note to self…..Remember to track down and to punch the creator of the kid show Yo Gabba Gabba in the face/.. If you haven’t watched it…please do and comment back after you hear memorable songs like Snacky snack snack snack. snack. Or..it’s fun to Brush your teeth.. These songs are I’ll admit somewhat useful when rearing children.. I myself have sang them to my kids when we are at an impasse…”It’s fun to brush your teeth..It;s fun to brush your teeth…” Yet they get stuck in your head like flashbacks of a war scene… One part of the show that cracks me up is they have celebrity dancy dance where some A-D list celebrities teach a kid to dance. Honestly my kids love it.. but the phallic character Mono really freaks me out.. Heres a clip of the opening of every show.. after the 5th time of hearing … “yo gabba gabba” I want to rip my eyes out!!!! What do you think????


_ NOTE: depending on the popularity of this post this might be a continuing subject since i have like five more shows that..are the bane of my existence.

I do not care for this show either. We watch Curious George and Clifford.

OMG! Where is the Excedrine? Back in the old days my kids watched Sesame Street and the Electric Company. GABBA whatever would drive me to drink in no time!

haha, just started following your blog, found you on MBC, I too have children that love this show so I feel your pain!

Theta Mom said...

It looks like a bad version of a show that was produced when we were kids. My all time favorite was Romper Room. Remember that? And she never said my name in the mirror!

BTW, just grabbed your button! ;)

I totally have to agree about YGG. G isn't big enough to decide what he wants but I watched a couple of these with him on the computer and thought never again. YGG makes me want to permanently damage my hearing

Okay I'm that crazy mom. We don't have cable TV, except for a few months in the winter when there is nothing to do but sit in front of the fire or watch TV, lol. I know. Why punish myself, right. Who knows, I'm crazy.

That show would freak me out too! I am past the kiddie show age here..and on to xbox. Not sure which is worse!

I have never even let my kids watch it....after Barney and TeleTubbies with my step daughter...I vowed to watch before I let my kids see, if I don't like it, they never see the light of day at our house...I feel for ya

Foursons said...

Pink Nothings said...

blueviolet said...

I'm so glad my kids missed that series. That's awful! You poor thing.

I am a total control freak. We watch DVD's so I can only deal with the shows I can handle. Luckily the tv is too high for them to take control!

Lore* said...

Opt for a different show or DVD and tell them the show is discontinued, and after 30 min. of explaining what that means, show them their new favorite show. Good Luck!

The Redhead Riter said...

Ummmm...I think I will stick with Barney. Don't let them watch such an aggravating show! LOL

I was raised on Andy Griffith, Captain Kangaroo, Romper Room and Lucille Ball...NORMAL!

Now I am looking at the word verification word I have to type:

ortfus

What the heck? Some of these words just sound gross.

I hope you have a great day!

That does look annoying. I'd have to say Sponge Bob annoys me. I use to love that show, but now I'm on spongebob overload!!

My kids love Japanese cartoons. Dubbed into Hindi. I never understand them!

Patty said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your boys are so cute.

I don't have kids so I've never seen this show. I do watch The Soup and sometimes they make fun of it. It is colorful so I can see how it appeals to kids.

My son doesn't watch much TV but I just wanted to let you know that he happened to come over while I was reading your blog and INSISTED on watching that clip. Now he's screaming, "I WANT TO WATCH IT AGAIN, I WANT TO WATCH IT AGAIN!" Thanks. A lot. LOL.

I will catch up and comment on the rest of your blog soon (meaning sometime in the next few days)... he's going to be a monster until I let him watch that clip again!

OK. Its about now when I'm glad Australian TV is behind the times LOL.
