BANNED From Television!

I never thought I would be the mother to ban TV shows (age appropriate of course) but after watching certain shows with my son. It was only a matter of time. I'm all for educational purposes. And even enjoy how some shows put music and teach kids how to act in certain situations. Some I can tolerate because I simply tune them out. Some on the other hand has got to go.

There are 3 television shows that are BANNED in my house. I know, I know, a little extreme, well more than extreme but if my son ever wants to see the light of day, he is not allowed to watch these shows. I was being sarcastic. He will live.

First culprit.

The infamous asshole
He Who Must Not Be Named.
Is the Lord Voldemort of Television.
Trying to make children into pure unacceptable obnoxious brats.

He is the most annoying, disrespectful, whiniest child ever.  Why is this bald headed child still on television? I mean really? His voice is annoying and everyone around him wants to get away from (speaks volume huh?). He is just the ultimate of effing annoyance. How the hell does his mother deal? Oh that’s right she doesn't she just give him what he wants to shut him the hell up. If I had a child like that, I would be a steady drunk, because I just could not deal with his shit sober.  And even drunk, his ass would be up for adoption (I just can’t).

I am convinced that the meaning of Caillou is “the bald headed kid that whines” because that is all he does. *roll eyes* So over it. My son is not ever allowed to watch that douche. 

And I am serious. He is actually BANNED from my television. If his show comes on, I IMMEDIATELY change the channel. I won’t give that little fucker a chance to show himself to my child. My son already has his faults he doesn't need this jerk to empower it. Ugh! I LOATHE Caillou.

To break it down, please don’t ever introduce your child to this annoying little child. He is not worth the cartoon sketch just to watch. He is altering children minds to become a whiny, over sensitive, self-centered brat.


Yo Gabba Gabba

Uhm…wtf?

That is all I have to say. What in the hell is this? The producer of this show is clearly on drugs. I mean really. Wtf? How is this show okay for kids??? It’s like being on a bad drug trip. Acid? Shrooms? Some hallucinogenic shit.

I tried giving this show a chance. I swear, I promise, but this one right here is just a little too much for me.  I couldn't get past its initial purpose because I was tripping off the monsters. It doesn’t have a whiny kid (thank God) but it has some colorful monsters and a guy that jumps around and play music. 

Uhmm….okay….

I understand it has a positive side such as teaching children to be polite but does it need a man in an orange jumpsuit dancing and parading around with a bunch of creepy monsters behind him? Now when I think about it. He is wearing an orange jumpsuit. Maybe they are subconsciously saying he is jail? This is his hell? And anyone who watches it can also join the ride down under.
No parent has to do any type of drug with this show on the air. If they ever need a trip, Yo Gabba Gabba is available every day for the price of whatever your cable/satellite provider charge.

Curious George

Am I the only one that truly think this monkey is just a little too damn curious? They should have made him a cat instead of a monkey, to show children that curiosity can cause harm. I remember watching one episode and this little monkey had his own adventure without any supervision. As all of them are but watching that particular episode it dawned on me that this damn monkey is going to kill my baby.

Okay, okay, he won’t. I was just being extreme and over dramatic.

But back to this nonsense of a show. Can someone please tell me who The Man In The Yellow Hat is? Who is this man? Why doesn’t he have a name? What’s his secret? What is he trying to hide? Are Professor Wiseman and The Man In The Yellow Hat perhaps dating? And if so, why doesn’t she tell that man to get rid of that damn monkey. All these questions and I have no answers.

And why is Bill the country boy such an ass? He’s a know it all. But here’s the kicker, he doesn’t know George is a freaking monkey? What? Huh? I’m confused. So EVERYONE knows George is a monkey but the self-proclaimed KNOW IT ALL? 

Sigh.

Now Bill, if you’re so damn good and proper how the hell have you not noticed this crap yet?
Huh Bill? Huh!? Go play with your kite and fly your proper ass with it.

But here’s my kicker, George isn’t completely banned from the house only because sometime I need that crazed monkey around to keep my monster occupied. Yes! I know after everything I have said that little monkey is allowed to come around sometime. 

And when I say sometime. 

He is as welcome as the in laws are.

  1. It's not good to show a whinny kid in television since kids may think it's ok. Kids are curious but their curiosity should be channeled in a positive way.

  6. I've actually never heard of the first two shows- likely because I don't have kids! I'm sure once I do there will certainly be banned shows though- and limits on how long to watch TV in the first place!

  8. We watched all of these occasionally but it never affected my kids. They were never whinning but then they grew up in an adult environment so they were a bit matured and found whinning kids a bit annoying but were always very nice to them and try to distract them by being constructive and helpful. Glad to be over that period.

    1. Whining is just unacceptable in my house. I do not tolerate it one bit.

  26. I've never had a problem with caillou. Ever. Lol, I see a lot of other people's kids acting like Caillou so sadly it's nothing new to me - my kids haven't ever acted out or wondered why he is the way he is, they just enjoy the show so we watch it on occasion!

    Yo Gabba Gabba on the other hand - can't stand! My kids won't even watch it if it comes oh they wander away!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I giggled so hard but agree with you some of these characters and shows are just plain crazy. What a way to teach your child to be whining brats. lol

    ReplyDelete
  28. I totally agree with you, you should have control of what your kids watch on tv. If it's not good for them, it's probably not worth their time.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It is important to control what shows kids watch: my daughter is older so she does not watch those shows. But I banned some shows for her as I did not feel they are age appropriate or deliver the right message

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sorry, I am lost here. Mother of adult sons so we don't watch any of these. Personally, I have thought of banning my husband from watching a few shows, LOL.

  31. ok my toddler doesn't watch much television but she has no idea who these are. She has never watched Sesame Street either. All she knows is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and I love it that way.

  32. We had banned Barney in our house (it still "doesn't work" on our tv), but my son has watched it at daycare. He prefers Sesame Street and Super Why, and I'm good with that.

  33. Cracking up at this post! Love the honesty. :)

  34. LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OMG We didn't let our kids watch lmfao He Who Shall Not Be Named either. All he did was flip his damn top every time he didn't get his way. My husband and I were like, oh hell no... This entire post seriously made me laugh! Now that our kids are older only types of shows we don't allow them to watch are any ones with ehum bratty kids slamming doors and telling their parents I HATE YOU all over not getting like, an extra slice of pie for dessert. NOPE!

  35. I don't have any kids, but Yo Gabba Gabba was always on my banned list if it is still around when I have them. LOL. Glad to see mothers here taking stands against terrible shows.

  38. I must agree with you, there's some really stupid TV shows which basically teach nothing and they are so annoying! Sanjay and Craig really annoys me but my daughter loves it for some odd reason, think I need to ban it...

  39. haha we don't have kids yet, but i know i will get super annoyed having to watch shows like this with my kids. my husband actually been working all last year and created a kids webseries on youtube. not sure if you will like it or if it will make your ban list.. but you should check it out! https://www.youtube.com/user/thefuzees

  40. I'm not really aware of kids shows as I don't have a kid yet, but only reading this makes me more sure that I'll ban TV for a while from my kids...

  43. I haven't seen these shows. Whenever I go to my son's room, it is always "Full House" that I see. He recorded the reruns and watches them whenever he feels like it.

  47. My kids do not watch any of these! LOL! Thank God!

  48. Is Caillou still on the air? That was on when my kids were little. I agree he is so whinny and a terrible cartoon for kids.

  49. I was laughing so hard while reading this! Especially about Caillou. He's such a BRAT!

  50. No Caillou in my house. Also, I find Barney very annoying. In my area, Caillou is only on TV at 5 am or something, so no worries there. Spongebob is also banned but we don't have cable.

  51. Thankfully my girls are way to old for these shows. However I think we all have our own opinions on things.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Isn't it funny how most people don't even think about the programs having a negative effect on kids? I see how one would think it can have a negative effect on kids with a character you described. I never really thought about it much either. The difference between a show with violence and Bugs Bunny is there is no blood in the cartoon but violence is just as bad in both. .Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I really did LOL when you likened Caillou to Lord Voldemort. That's freaking hysterical - and accurate. I avoided Yo Gabba Gabba as well, but I differ on George - I love him. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm 39 and remember Curious George from when I was younger. He's a classic. Back then we didn't have much to pick from like kids do today. I guess I never really thought that he was annoying. I found him rather fun and enjoyable. Kiddo will watch him once in a while as they have a few things on Hulu and Netflix from time to time. The other 2, we've never watched.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Holy shit I'm dying! I'm at my kids gymnastics and I've read your take on Calliou aloud and we are dying laughing! It is so true, he is the most annoying thing EVER! I'm sending to my husband too. :) Thanks for the laugh and honesty!

  56. I totally agree with you but I have to warn you about what's coming next; tween shows. The kids on them make Caillou seem charming.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Funny, I agree with you for one of the show. I just dont get it. At all. While I see you point for the other two shows, I confess I turn a blind eye because I enjoy them also. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yo Gabba Gabba is by far the creepiest show ever! LOL I just can't watch it. But darn it if those songs are not catching! I had "Party in My Tummy" stuck in my head for months!!!!

  59. I agree, I am more on the educational tv series with my 4 years old child

  60. We never watch that children's series. Because we don't live in the USA, but we do have teletubbies, Dora and Peppa Big.

  61. Yo Gabba Gabba Yo! hahaha I didn't like that one at first, but it totally grew on me. We had the CD in the car for over a year, so the songs stuck too, lolol

  62. My children haven't seen the first two, but the looks of them are enough to annoy me! I feel the same way about Sesame Street (this show always made my skin crawl for some reason), SpongeBob, and Thomas & Friends.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I totally feel you on Caillou. I can't stand the kid!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think your decision to ban those TV programs is great. I don't allow my kids to watch Caillou because they may be influenced by his bad behavior.

    ReplyDelete
  65. It's important to screen these shows because they set an example.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I don't have kids yet. However when I babysit I refuse to let the kids watch any of those shows in my presence. Especially Caillou cannot stand that show at all.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I haven't thought about banning shows yet because so far, all shows that my daughter watches arefine with me,
