What's on your list of the most annoying, most obnoxious, or just completely un-likeable children's shows?

For us, I refuse to watch Dora and Barney -- I just can't stand them!!!! Betsy doesn't even know that Dora exists. She's seen some Barney video clips a couple of times and I cringe whenever I hear them.
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!

I won't do Yo Gabba Gabba because the red thing reminds me of an infected male you know what. I also think it looks like someone on acid created it. I won't do Telatubbies, Barney, Spongebob, and I detest Calliou or however you spell it. He's like five but has no hair. Just plain odd. We are big on Wiggles, Bubble Guppies and Imagination Movers here. Owen also loves Team Umizoomi.

No Yo Gabba Gabba, Calliou, Blues Clues or Spongebob over here. They are all super freaky and weird and just plain annoying to me. I don't even turn them on!

We don't have cable, just Netflix so we don't watch much Mickey anymore. Our favorites are Super Why, Dinosaur Train, Diego, and the Leap Pad movies.

I think it'd probably be easier to list which ones I dont mind But definitely no Barney, sponge bob, dora, diego, yo gabba, thomas train (so monotone and boring!), calliou

Like Kelli, we dont have cable just Netflix so Caleb doesnt even know these shows exist. He gets his Mickey fix from youtube and we own lots of movies he picks from.

Calliou, Ruby & Max and Thomas are big NO's in this house. I don't like Toopy & Bino, but Mason does so I will let that slid the odd time.

For the most part Myles does not like any tv. He will sit and watch with Mason if he has food in front of him, but for the most part he does not watch it at all.

Thank you GraysMama for the awesome Siggy

um... what you listed. I can't stand Dora or Yo Gabba. We don't ever see Caillou or Thomas the Train, just because she's not into it. She does like Spongebob, but I don't (DH, on the other hand...)

Kellen only likes Rolie Polie Olie. And he only likes the intro song. He'll watch sports for a bit, but he's really not into TV at all. He likes to look at slideshow photos of us all

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

I don't really cares what he watches. I'm on my netbook if he's watching. I do like watching america's funniest home videos with him. He thinks it's a riot.

We only have public broadcasting channel so I haven't seen Barney or most of the other's ya'll listed that you don't like.

I just don't pay attention anymore if he watches something I don't care for. At this point they all kind of annoy me b/c if he likes it then we have probably had it on a million times. Thankfully though i did get rid of Caillou finally. That was mainly b/c it was all he wanted to watch.

thank you tasha_mae for the great siggy!

We don't have cable, but I say no to Spongebob. Otherwise, there are shows that we don't watch because I've never heard of them But not necessarily because I dislike them. He also dislikes most animation, so we skip that usually, but he does like Pixar-type animation.

I can't stand Barney, Spongebob and Caillou and I try to never watch these if at all possible.

I really don't like Max & Ruby or Toopy and Binoo either but the kids like those so I let them slide.

They really like Bubble Guppies and Octonauts right now and I am okay with those. Backyardigans is the one I actually really like lol!

No Barney or Yo Gabba

E actually loves Caillou, I think he's a brat so I try to limit it. Her favorite is Word World and could watch it all day. I love it cause it teaches her to spell and sound out words.

Thank you so much Alethia for my GORGEOUS siggy!!

Bubble guppies, and doc mcstuffins is what we watch. She LOVES doc mcstuffins. And veggie tales.

No yo gabba, no sponge Bob, no Barney. Austin was IN LOVE with Barney. Grace doesn't know him!

No Barney. Spongebob. Rhyme Rocket. Thomas Train (though he loves it). Blues Clues. Show Me Show Me. Teletubbies. Dora. Diego.

He LOVES In the Night Garden, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Raa Raa the Noisy Lion. Peppa Pig.

Other shows he would take or leave but I don't put them on.

Teletubies would be pure torture. And thankfully hes not hung up on Yo Gabba Gabba. Those are by far the two most annoying shows I can think of.

He loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Little Einsteins and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Oh and Elmos World.
Expecting #3 in January 2016!

I don't watch ANY of them! lol The kids rarely watch TV, but when they do, they have their own TV in the playroom that stays on Disney Jr. I have some episodes of Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse recorded for Lucy to watch in the living room every now and then, and those don't bother me.
