Top 5 Toons

Being relative newbies to the current world of children's cartoons DH, Nantie and I have been scratching our heads over some of the programming. Seriously, what are the writers on?? I've already lamented over the shows that make my skin crawl. That's right all you SpongeBob, FlapJack and Wiggles fans.. we are in total disagreement over quality tv for kids.

That being said, we've delighted in some new-to-us kid shows. Here are my TOP 5 favorites.


#5...
Tigger & Pooh: Classic old (and new) friends revamped.



#4...
Charlie & Lola: Completely darling.


#3...
Little Einsteins: A wee bit annoying but the end result is worth it. Lots of good learning goin' on.


#2...
The Imagination Movers: My answer to The Wiggles (*Shiver*). The Twins and I dance around the room to their songs. Total fun with really cute guys (not like the creepy ones that nightmares are made of).


and Number 1 All Time New Favorite is..


Drum roll, please..

HANDY MANNY!
Where do I start? All I can say is move over Bob The Builder... Seriously, I could go on and on..


Yep, they are all on the Disney Channel. I am aware Nick Jr has a couple good ones out there but these are hands down new favs.

On the flipside, I finally sat down and watched part of an episode of Hannah Montana... and still not getting the big whup over her. If anyone would care to shed light over that mystery, please share!

Gotta love Disney channel, quality programming and there are no commercials to turn sweet children into whining, demanding little consumers!

Down with the Wiggles!

"Big whup?" I haven't heard that expression in years! Glad you found your way to the good cartoons. My kids love Pooh and Charlie and Lola. Another fun one is Maggie and the Ferocious Beast.

I despise the Wiggles too, but love the Imagination Movers. They actually called us one time to personally thank us for entering a contest. Seriously. They are the sweetest guys!

Hannah Montana= A lot of money spent on marketing. That's it.

Try PBS...Sprout channel too...great stuff and usually free on demand (Comcast) as well! Gracie even likes the old old old stuff on PBS.

Those are faves in our house too! Along with Noggin's The Backyardigans, The Wonder Pets, and Wow Wow Wubbzy. Personally DH and I loathe Wubbzy but he's better than Spongebob.

Isn't that Flapjack show just the weirdest thing every?????

For some reason, our cable company has started giving us Boomerang. It's been fun to sit down and watch the Smurfs and Snorks with my Kiddo, but I seriously wonder what ever drew me to those shows to begin with. They're not as awesome as I remember them being.

Have you ever tried to watch that iCarly show? I don't get what's the big idea with that one, either.
