Vote for the Worst Kids’ Show on TV: FINAL ROUND

vote for the worst kids show on tv

Ok. So who had Dora and Barney going all the way? My money was on Dora and Caillou with Caillou winning, so I was only a third right. I was going to photoshop Dora’s head on to Barney’s body, but then I realized that 1) I don’t have photoshop and 2) it is probably scarier left to the imagination.


Dorasaurus or a very scary squirrel. Whatever.

Swipe that, motherswipers!

I have no opinion on Barney. I am too old for him to have affected my youth and Spencer isn’t interested. Admittedly, I haven’t tried to interest Spencer, but he uses the remote for the netflix where you can sort by character and he always skips right past that purple dinosaur.

Dora, on the other hand, I have very strong feelings about. So much yelling! The whole Swiper thing isĀ problematicĀ and I’m not sure how cultural it really is. Plus, Spencer always makes me read him the Dora books in the bookstore; I do the spanish parts in English. I don’t really buy the whole it teaches kids Spanish thing either, because Spencer watches it ALL THE TIME and only knows hola, pelota and uno. The uno thing might actually be from the card game anyways.

So. On to the votes. This is the very last round and voting ends on Thursday night. The “winner” will be announced on Friday.

The whole bracket can be viewed here. I want to thank Suzanne for being such a super fun cohost for this. I think it was fun and maybe we’ll do it again next year with a different topic.

    My kids will NOT stop shouting “SWIPER NO SWIPING! SWIPER NO SWIPING!…aw MAN!”

    It was adorable the first time, funny the second time, and made me want to cut my ears off EVERY ONE OF THE BILLION TIMES SINCE THEN. We have also learned no Spanish.

    Do they also throw their hands out when they say it? That’s the worst. Spencer will do it right in my face.

    We watch a crap ton of Dora and Diego in this house. But Barney is BY FAR the most annoying children’s television show I have encountered.

    I am still shocked, SHOCKED! that Caillou isn’t in this. Perhaps that is because Wren has discovered it on the PBS Kids app and now watches it ad nauseum.

    I voted for Barney because I am entranced by the fact that they say “swiper no swiping” 3 times, lending it a sort of fairy tale charm. Like it’s a cantrip they must recite to keep the trickster god away from their business.
