If they were really such geniuses, they'd have developed a more efficient energy source for their rocket than forcing me to clap. It's a pretty obvious design flaw you think they'd have worked on by now. They just keep me watching because otherwise they can't go anywhere.

I feel used.

You only have a couple years left and then your little ones will move on to other shows. More annoying shows. Shows that will make you look fondly back on Little Einsteins.

Too bad they stopped making Jack's Big Music Show...

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

Rocket's actually powered by a nuclear reactor, but clapping is the control mechanism by which the fuel rods are moved into a reactive position. It's a simple way to keep the dangerously capable AI of Rocket from taking over the world, because his breeze blower can't clap.

Now if you can just tune out the singing, you can enjoy some nice music without irritation.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

My kids, at a certain age, watch these Little People videos we have. Of course, to a kid, it's fine, but all these weird things happen and nobody questions them at all. A monkey in an Air Traffic Control Tower BY HIMSELF, lying to all the citizens? Meh, who cares. A car in a tree? Happens all the time, no biggie. Building Permits? Who needs 'em

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

It's obviously a part of the ignition system, and the passcode to super fast travel. And it keeps my 2 year old out of trouble so no arguments are good enough against it.

Are trains really the most efficient way of moving things over an island? How can the cargo lines make any money moving things a couple miles?

Sodor. Sigh.

There are some exceptions. I loved it when my kids were into Phineas and Ferb... probably the only one of their kid's shows I liked. Most of the non-animated shows are quite atrocious.

Wow. My hatred for Caillou knows no bounds. After watching one show, my daughter got up and started whining. All that show teaches children is how to whine.

My baby is 11 months old and I have been able up until now to avoid him watching TV. I will try to hold until 2 years (the recommended age here for kids to start watching TV).

After 2 years, I plan to try to do what my parents did: pass on "educational" videos and put some old fashioned adventure series. Let's see what my wife thinks about that, though.

How I miss Ulyses 31!

You know, The Odyssey in Space, for kids. Who can beat that?

Maybe a language issue. When something is fun here, we do not call educational. I watched Sessame Street all the time, but nobody called it educational.

I think that we reserve educational for something that is not funny

It is definitely called educational in the U.S. But that may have a lot to do with the fact that we have rules that require certain amounts of children's television programming be educational.
