Kids Shows
So this afternoon, my brother and sister borrowed my laptop to do some things online, because his laptop is in for repairs at the moment.

So I went into the lounge room and decided to watch TV for a while. I am still on holidays from work (this is my last week of leave before I go back so I am making the most of it. I cleaned the house while I was here by myself, so no one could complain about the vacumn cleaner and the noise or the wet floor from mopping.)

Anyway, first, I watched this show called Medical Emergency, which I have seen a few times before but usually cannot watch because I get squeamish. cat_smilies/icon_sweatdrop.gif Still, I wanted to know a little about what hospitals look like and what goes on in the medical profession, so I watched it. It was a good episode actually, very informative. I only cried a few times. Lol.

After that show I was feeling like I needed something lighter so I flicked through and found ...what? A cute little kid's show called the Toy Box? Yeah, okay, the theme song is adorable, I will watch that. XD I really liked how well put together it was actually. There were a few moments of corniness but most of the songs were pretty good. Think it's one of the best children's shows I've come across since I was babysitting younger children. (Little Einsteins is also a good show, FYI and not too unbearable or corny).

After that ended, siblings still were not finished with the laptop so I channel surfed a bit more and found a programme called The Big Knights.

Now, this show made me laugh. It has a wry sort of ridiculous humour. It features two big knights called Sir Boris and Sir Morris, (plus their dog and their hamster) and they on this particular episode were at a banquet held by King Otto in Castle Big.

Halfway through this banquet, they got up on the table and started jumping around singing the most rambunctious song called 'Happy Mister Chicken'. Now, this cracked me up...I must have a childish sense of humour but I would love to see this performed in real life. Two very large armour clad men, roaring at the top of their voices and performing a jumping chicken dance atop the table in the middle of the king's banquet. Ahaha! cat_smilies/icon_rofl.gif You really had to see it.

At the end of the episode, they even did the 'Happy Mister Pig' dance...though I must say that I would not like to see this dance as unfortunately it requires one to remove all of one's clothing (and possibly roll around).

Anyone else ever spent a few hours watching kids' TV programmes? It can be rather entertaining. Feel free to leave comments about your experiences in the comments section.

Horrible Histories is still one of my favourites. I go on and off with that one because while they are educating people in a humourous manner, the content of it is actually very gory or dark. It still makes me laugh though. cat_smilies/icon_razz.gif
