In The Night Garden......arghhhh

Recommended Posts

With a 4 month old baby in the house, TV does appear to be a useful pacifier on occasions and as a result I and more so my wife have been exposed to children's TV for the first time since being children.

Is it just me, or is there something particularly annoying, disturbing or call it what you will about "In The Night Garden"

Perhaps for adults it is just the most banal programme, and it just aimed quite literally at babies.

The only relief seems to be coming up creating new characters, such as the Titty Fuks - or maybe those are actual characters.

Shame on you

:P

Best 'baby-sitter' in the universe when my elder was about 3 was The Sound of Music, /God bless it.

Only way we ever got a lie-in at the weekend.

We also wore out a Disney Cinderella when she was about the same age.

I liked Night Garden. For a million quid an episode, I bloody should have done.

My kids liked Ivor the Engine and Bagpuss. They liked Clangers too, but I never got that as a kid.

Dad Porn

Dad porn or not, this seems to me to be a typical example of something I feel I've noticed.

On the odd occasions I've caught a bit of what I would assume is pre-school-age TV presentation, it always seems horribly and unrealistically ecstatic and joyful.

Why do we seem to have decided to present the world to youngsters as being an overwhelmingly, bouncily and dizzily wonderful and optimistic place?

I don't know anything about the education of pre-school-age kids or of their psychology, but this approach makes me feel a bit uneasy for some reason that I've yet to precisely identify.

I'm more than happy for him to enjoy the fictional world of Waybuloo and Pepper Pig.

I can only say this type of programme puzzles me (although I don't believe I've seen a whole episode).

I don't understand the idea behind a presenting kids with a world occupied by entirely fictional creatures (and sometimes species).

From an educational point of view, what's wrong with showing youngsters the way the actual world is?

Clearly, a BBC view of the real world.:rolleyes: [it's only real to the BBC if they make it up].:blink:

Ben and Holly's little kingdom (from the makers of Peppa Pig) is hilarious..

Nickelodeon Jnr's 'land of dreams' night time song creeps me out though.

Got a 20 month old and a 2 month old. The older loves The Night Garden, though Teletubbies is now becoming his favourite. At least they talk a bit in Teletubbies, though both drive me insane. Yesterday he had a bit of Bear in the Blue House which I quite like, along with Sesame Street (even if these are American) and I'm trying to get him into Fraggle Rock.

:lol: fantastic, all she needed was a pole.

I can see the dads furtively looking over, mesmerized.

At 4 months old your little one is responding to colour and movement and would have no comprehension of what they are seeing. For Baby and Dad I would recommend snooker, cricket,horseracing or something similar rather than the overstimulating psychedelic nightmare of the kiddies programmes you get these days. Soothing and calm is what you need.

Mass baby suicide ? Crawling over a cliff ? Rolling under a train ? Dropping their wee heeds in their mushy baby food until they ended themselves ?

:D

WhiteAngloSaxonPerv - 1325 videos of weather girls and kiddies tv presenters.

Somebody been made redundant recently?

There goes another keyboard to the spilt/spat out coffee. That said, I dont even want to speculate what WASP spills on his keyboards.

Incidentally, I too have fond memories of milkshake when my littleuns were younger. Sadly, I can no longer watch without raising questions from my wife.

Iggle Piggle = Narcoleptic Old Sailor.

Upsy Daisy = Prostitute with own bed.

I'm pretty sure the Wottingers are communists! :blink:

I thought they were kind of religious sect, what with the strange uniform and common sleeping arrangements.

They never showed the episode where Makka 'OCD' Pakka disemboweled Iggle Piggle for knocking his pile of stones over.
