1. Is it me or is the Hotdog Dance song from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse causing a Pavlovian response to want to choke the life out of Goofy?
2. Thanks to Elmo for saying once (like 2 years ago) that broccoli is gross and now my kid refuses to even try it because "Elmo said its yucky." Frankly, I don't care if Elmo gets some kind of colo-rectal issue, but I'm over here trying to teach my kid how to eat to live in a world full of diseases from genetically modified food and the damn puppet is veggie-blocking me.
3. I'm not sure Little Einsteins is creating a culture of classical music officiandos as much as its just angering parents and care givers who must now explain that one cannot simply start a vehicle by clapping. If you have ever argued with your kids on these types of things you know that a root canal is preferable.
4. "Dog With A Blog" is a show where an actual dog has more blog followers than I do.
5. I have a hard "No Calliou" rule. It's legit whinier than our current administration.
6. Why in the world do children's movies allow the words "stupid" and "dumb"?! I have had to do damage control since Monsters, Inc. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Disney movies, but hearing the word 'stupid' coming out of your 2 year olds mouth is a bit disconcerting, to say the least. Honestly, I would rather he drop an F Bomb.
7. Have you seen these YouTube Kids reality shows? There are several. All they do is show videos of their everyday life, only in the MOST annoying way possible. Now my kid thinks sending a cute video to his grandparents should include the words "don't forget to subscribe and 'Like' this video at the link below..."
8. While I'm on a YouTube Kids rant...just the background music in the app hypnotizes my kid into some sort of stopper and he can't seem to pay attention anyone or anything else. Case in point: he walked into a wall the other day and bounced right up like something out of the Walking Dead.
9. What in the actual F*&% is going on with that SpongeBob Squarepants and his gang of weirdo cohorts? I mean, really. WTF??
10. I am totally annoyed that in most children's films the male characters is either a prince who is completely void of any depth and complexity, or a cad, a thief or a complete asshole. Why? Let's not even begin to discuss the gender roles and age issues of these movies but I mean, come on. Don't little boys deserve some sort of relatable protagonist that starts out a good person and makes good decisions and doesn't need a to be jerk to get the moral of the story conveyed to the audience? Just a thought.
What annoys you about whatever shows or movies your Little Rebels are geeking out over these days?
