Vote for the Worst Kids Show on TV! Round 4!

Monday, March 25th, 2013

So, we’ve made it to the Elite Eight! Crap. Is that trademarked? Edgy Eight? Exclusive Eight? Whatever. Eight left. This is the round that decides the worst show on each channel and then in the next round, for the first time, we’ll have mixed channel match-ups. EXCITING! That’s it!! The exciting eight! Woot! Trademark infringement suit averted.

Our Nick Jr finalists aren’t much of a surprise. Dora versus Dino Dan. Most people predicted these would be the final two from Nick Jr, with the possibility of Max & Ruby edging out Dino Dan. In fact, I thought M&R would go all the way to the Nick Jr finals and failed to make a WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS??!?!! joke. But I did discover that Dan and Dora can plug themselves into the Max & Ruby theme song quite nicely so all is not lost. Dan and Dora! Dora and Dan!

We thought it would be fun to share some trivia about the shows that made it this far, of course I thought that was a good idea before I realized there is nothing interesting about Dino Dan. It’s Canadian! Dan was in Sunshine Cleaning, which is a movie I saw and liked, but remember nothing about. There are only 26 episodes! The actress who plays the mom was in a comedy troupe with Samantha Bee! Ok. That is marginally interesting.

Dora on the other hand – muy escandaloso! The second voice of Dora sued Nickelodeon Viacom for being underpaid and owed royalties, her family settled and then lost almost the entire settlement to taxes and lawyer fees.  Plus there was the questionable tween makeover (on the show, not the actress) and the explorer girls. Weirdly, the dates for a lot of the voice actors don’t line up on wikipedia and imdb, but at one point Map and Swiper were voiced by the same guy, who at one point was a writer on SNL. Trivia!

Which show is worse?

In delightfully random pairing news, there could be a Dan vs Dan match-up if Dan vs goes all the way. Although, still having never seen an episode, I am sort of a fan now that I found out that the Family Ties parents voice a pair of parents on the show. I guess the two shows share a producer, but that’s cute.

The WotWots is a show from New Zealand and some of the computer work is done by Weta, a company that is a little more famous for some movie trilogies – Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. Plus the WotWots are ready to face a dystopian future because SallyWot is voiced by an actress who was in District 9. The narrator was in Hercules: The Legendary Journey.

Why did I not do trivia when I had shows that had cool tidbits! REGRETS! Suzanne has the final match-ups from Disney Jr and Sprout. Caillou versus Barney might be a nail biter, people hate both of those shows so much! I have a feeling Choo Choo Soul is going to wipe the floor with 3rd and Bird, but we will see.

Vote for the Worst Kids’ Show on TV: Round 2

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

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.

NICK JR

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.

HUB

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.

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.
