The Two WORST TV Shows for Preschoolers {and their parents!}

In our time browsing the kid’s selection on Netflix {Canadian Netflix, not as awesome as US Netflix}, I’ve come across some pretty terrible programming for MiniDork’s age group. I’m not sure who decided it was a good idea to crank out low-quality, high-annoyance TV shows for the three-year-old set, but they need to be smacked. Listen, writers, when you write shows for preschoolers, you’ve got to remember that PARENTS are part of your audience. As much as we joke in our society about setting a kid in front of the TV and scurrying off to do other things…those other things are usually in the same room or an adjacent one. Whether we want to or not, we end up watching these shows with our kids. So please, for the love of all that is good and pure, STOP MAKING OBNOXIOUS TV SHOWS; shows like:

2. Caillou

This got banned in our house after a few episodes. If your own preschooler doesn’t whine enough for your taste, then, by all means, enjoy listening to Caillou whine about EVERY. DAMN. THING. ALL. THE. DAMN. TIME. And if whining isn’t bad enough, let him model further bad behavior for your own tot when he decides to go in the kitchen and make cookies {aka a huge, friggin’ mess} without parental permission or supervision. You’ll especially love when his mom, upon discovering the wreckage, politely asks Caillou if he’d like to help clean up. Lady, no. Just NO. When a three-year-old wrecks your kitchen they don’t get to decide if they feel like cleaning up. They are going to help clean up. Period.
1. The Backyardigans

This got banned not even one episode in. If terrible CG animation and even more terrible music appeals to you, then you’ll love this show. If you’d rather not lose your mind listening to ear-bleed inducing {and oh-so-repetitive} music, then stay away. Stay far, far away.
