Vote for the Worst Kids’ Show on TV: Round 2
I hope everyone had fun voting on the worst kids’ show on television in the first round of the Preschool Showdown last week; I know I had fun watching the results come in. This poll set is a combination of Nick Jr and Hub, might as well keep it simple.
It was no surprise that the intrepid Dora the Explorer, the loud girl that no one likes, thoroughly trounced Blue, lovable clue placing dog. Although it happened so fast, I was left with no opportunity to use my best children’s television fun fact: Bot’s voice on Team Umizoomi is none other than Joe from Blue’s Clues. The more I imdb, the smaller I find the voice world to be.
Round 2 finds Dora facing off against Little Bear, the animated series based on the Maurice Sendak books. Honestly, I was surprised people voted against Little Bear because I find it so easy to tune out, no singing, no yelling. I guess people like Olivia or maybe just the color red.
I am not surprised that Fresh Beat Band beat Yo Gabba Gabba. I still think it was annoying that they just swapped red heads and thought kids wouldn’t notice. It was one episode from the music school (cool) graduation. How hard would it have been to just have Marina graduate and then a new blonde drummer join the band. Stupid. Spencer noticed and he was only 2.
Facing off against the dimwitted quartet will be Wow, Wow Wubbzy which is an annoying nightmare in its own right. No clue how this one will end up. Maybe people could use guest stars to decide. FBB had Jason Mraz, Wow Wow Wubbzy had Beyonce.
In the obsessed with a career at a very young age match-up. Dino “Young Ross Gellar” Dan versus Diego the Animal Rescuer. It was not a surprise that these young men won each of their pairings in the first round. Dan is so earnest it is painful and Diego is loud. So, so loud.
I don’t even know what to say about this one. People have STRONG FEELINGS about these two. Max & Ruby advancing over Oswald is a no brainer, but Wonder Pets vs Backyardigans was basically anyone’s game.
I tried to get Spencer to watch some of the shows on Hub to see what they were like (he just watches the Aquabats on this channel) and he lasted just a minute or two with these four: Chuck & Friends, Strawberry Shortcake, The WotWots and KaiJudo (full disclosure – we didn’t even attempt to watch KaiJudo). Of the four, he lasted the longest with the WotWots. Maybe he just likes alien puppets. Who knows.
OMG. GI Joe is TOTALLY a brony.
I feel like the Aquabats would be somehow delighted by this match-up. And then battle some evil giant Nasty Bear on the show. I like the Aquabats and find their antics delightful. DELIGHTFUL.
No one will care about this match-up. Toys turn show versus random whiny dude.
After you vote here, head over to Suzanne’s to vote on Round 2 for Disney Jr and Sprout/PBS.
