For those who are forced to watch CBeebies...

Whatever you like, really, knock yourself out... I'm not the boss of you.

Chris? Really? I find him a bit weird. Not creepy weird, just weird weird. And not at all attractive. I definitely think that Mr Bloom's the best of the bunch.

I really want to slap Katy - with her bizarre scrunched up face that looks like she's squinting into the sun all the time. Rahhh. Oh, and don't get me started on the hideousness that is that quiz/race show (can't remember the name) - the presenter is awful.

This thread is hilarious! You've all made me giggle lots :D

It's her incredibly fake laugh and the way her mouth moves like some kind of freakish marionette when she does it.

I too abhor the Rhyme Rocket with every fibre of my being and yes, that quiz show thing is just.bizarre.

While I quite like watching Mr Tumble, Justin is a bit weird. Can't put my finger on it. I think it's the old school panto clown thing he's got going on.

As for who's hot... Er, no one?!

Dp has an actual crush on Katy which I find more than a bit worrying. Not sure what it says about his taste! Mr Bloom is definitely the best of a bad bunch, though i did once have a soft spot for Andy. Slim pickings though!

Is it just me who thinks rastamouse is pants?

Pui has definitely had her baby, saw her at the Chris and Pui roadshow today. No baby in that lady :wink: . Quite surprised by how much grey Chris has in his hair.(although I like him, he's no Phillip 'silver fox 'Schofield) E loved,loved, loved it btw.

Mr Bloom, no way. Urgh. Justin - tolerable in Something Special, but Justin's House and Gigglebizz should be stopped, all tapes wiped and never ever remade. Katy - you can't cook. You can't act either.

I quite like Chris and Pui, and think Show Me Show Me is a nice, gentle programme.

Anyone remember Chris Corcoran? He presented Doodle Do. He's the best looking and funniest of all the CBeebies presenters.

I don't fancy any children's tv presenters. Mr bloom is creepy.

CP you made me laugh a bit about J having moved on from cbeebies. fluff is nearly 5 and still happily watches it but with school I guess that is about to change. She doesn't know that there are other tv channels, she thinks it is cbeebies and 'the news'. Interesting exchange with another small girl in John Lewis when we are getting her school shoes

I miss Doodle Do, the programme not the guy though.

Otherwise I really don't get what you all see in them.
Rhyme Rocket makes me want to claw by brain out, Munchkin loves it and sings the theme.
Justin is also dreadful, and getting steadily more rotund, or is it just me?

I'm currently desperately rationing TV time as the kids are much nicer without it. Thankfully Mr Man will accept Postman Pat on replay or disk. I can tolerate that and wierdly doesn't wind him up as much.

You may be alright bc, Munchkin still wants beebies and shes 6 in Nov.

Oh yes, he was kind of lovely...

And ugh, kerwizz is like some awful vision of the future in a Ray Bradbury story. Rastamouse is really dull and grandpa in my pocket makes me want to throw a first world tantrum in waitrose...

Aaaaargh just remembered what the worst one EVER is.....

Dirt. Girl. Fucking. World. Stuff of nightmares. Or excessive magic mushroom consumption. Because her freaky detached mouth was exactly the kind of thing I saw whilst having a rather nasty trip once... :oops:

Skip, yes! Dirt Girl World is like a reaaaally bad trip :? she's just so freaky.

I think Mr. Bloom is lovely, and I quite like Andy and Sid too. I like men with longer hair!

I also have a weird sort-of-crush on Twigs from Tree Fu Tom ( :oops: ). Well, his voice anyway.. DT.. lovely!

I LOVE Rastamouse, it creased me up the other weekend when someone had teefed a brooch! It makes me chuckle to hear these phrases in a kids programme, I love it!
Wah gowaan? :D

Unfortunately it was a combination of bloody nursery showing Dora et al during their 20-minute-TV sessions, the entire world's obsession with Peppa Pig and Nick Jr being one channel up from CBeebies (accidental finger slippage) which meant that he got hooked, and due to DH's illness I didn't have the energy or the heart to stop him watching and Nick Jr kept him occupied for longer than CBeebies did :oops: ! And I had all best intentions before then - I was so proud of him being unaware of Peppa Pig when he was over two, I think.

Mmmmm Sportacus. I was just sorting out the DVDs yesterday and came across a random free Lazy Town DVD - I tried to persuade Jacob to watch it just so I could marvel at Sportacus's impressive ... tumbling skills :D

Mr bloom gives me the creaps....that accent seems so so fake!!! My friends worked at and apparently justin is lovely but he drives me bonkers and mr maker is married to a programme boss or something hence he is in everything (well mr maker and grandpa)

For me it would be makka pakka or Eddie from chugginton ;-)
