What’s wrong with the children?

When the topic of ‘what’s wrong with these damn kids today’ comes up (and you know it does), my suggestion to you all is to simply point the questing party in the direction of this clip.

These are the childhood memories of a generation that will one day try to blow up the moon.  Seriously.  I know it’s a foreign language kid’s show, so by definition it’s kinda insane, but there’s so much wrongness here.  Like the old guy puppet looking on.  He’s creepy, and most definately in a ‘windowless white van full of puppies’ kind of way.

    I don’t get it, it’s a kid TV show. They are all like that. No? Bright and happy colours, smiling and funny faces. You have to explain this. ^^

    I think it’s mainly that CG pedophile that they digitally inserted, making unintelligible noises of glee while she performs.

    The girl is fairly cute though.  I’m diggin’ the pink wig.

    CG? Sorry I’m not English.

    Haha yeah now that I think about it… eeeww. He’s damn creepy.

    In the US, this show is called Lazytown.  It’s on Nick Jr, I believe.  My kids really like.  I believe it is originally from Iceland.

    Apparently it’s a huge shebang over there in Iceland… TV is just a part of it. They have their own brand of bottled water….??

    That kid is kinda cute. Can you really blame the old puppet man? Just kidding. Kid’s shows these days are all insane…and it will only get worse. But who is making this stuff? People who grew up on Mr. Rogers and Captain Kangaroo and Sesame Street, that’s who. Something must have been going wrong way back then. Hell, everybody knows what was going on with Bert and Ernie(and Bert’s love of pigeons was just sick). Remember Slim Goodbody? Something was really wrong there, too. The Electric Company was a good show…too bad that one is long lost. The one that really creeps me out is the Wiggles. If I had a kid, I sure wouldn’t want any of those guys wiggling anything near him. Alphamonkey’s kids will be ok…’cause they’ll just be watching old Arrested Development shows on DVD.

    GFG – I get to go and ride in the back of an ambulance and wonder if it’s even worth while if this is the course that we’re pushing the kids of tomorrow through.

    What the girl is singing: One day I woke up with my legs all stiff, oh what a pitty [blabla], but I won’t give up and started some exercising and now I can do a cartwheel and the splits again …

    I like the melody. Not that creepy, except of the hair color. smile

    I’d hit it.

    No doubt. Those Icelandic chicks are a lot older than they look anyway.

    I’m pretty sure that the old guy in the video is a puppet, not CG.  They have several puppets on that show.  I don’t really have a problem with it.  It’s the Boobahs that freak me out.  They jump around making flatulence noises, and they do EVERYTHING at least two dozen times.

  • jimbert

    damn right boobah are devil seeds!!!! they freak the hell outta me big time!! This show is on citv and Nick jr over in England, the puppet is fine its the dude in the lycra which worries me! expecially in the show

    Lazy town is rather creepy, due to those freaky-ass puppets!, but why not except it?, they are showing kids that Electronica is the way to go!

  • Oraxis

    Lazy Town is a show on Nick Jr and Noggin. The little girl and scary puppets speak english. They dubbed the foreign language over the voices. The guy that created this show is from Iceland, he’s the guy that jumps around in the blue jumpsuit, I believe. They also have scary facial makeup they use on the bad guy. Freaky.

    Yeah, I think we’ve figured that bit out by now.
