Today there was an article on the News about a kids TV programme called the Ooglies. It portrays animated food 'characters' interacting with each other.A mum had complained about a particular episode in which a finger of toast soldier wielded a non animated butter knife to decapitate an animated egg character

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNGwndLiCio

The BBC have defended the programme and twitter is split down the middle.

I was minding six yr olds a while ago when a prog came on called the 'annoying orange' which is an American series of the same ilk. I was quite put out to watch the fruit and veg in that , are shown stabbing each other in 'the eye', it shows presumably the kitchen owners knife coming down and sawing across the fruit with 'appropriate gunge oozing out, whilst the fruit screams and resists ....and so on .
I switched off because I thought it was highly unsuitable and desensitizing somehow.

What do wikifolk think?

Heres an example, not the most disturbing by any means, of the 'annoying orange'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOqHL4xlyhA

Whatever happened to Muffin the Mule , Andy Pandy and Bill and Ben !! Far more suitable in my opinion. I cringe to think of litte toddlers watching the likes of the above ,with their brothers and sisters.
Somehow these fruits and veg that have human eyes and teeth and voices etc make it just not the same as Tom and Jerry and other animated characters bashing each other.

These sort of things can influence children.

My younger son, at the age of 4 was told by his older brother of 6, he would turn into the incredible hulk if he ate his peas and green beans.

I never managed to get a green vegetable past his lips ,ever again, even though he didn't remember the reason why he wouldn't eat them.

One of the children who killed little Jamie Bulger had watched his mother chop up chickens from a tender age.

All these things go towards twisting the thought process, and the more gentle programmes the children watch, the more beneficial they are, in my thoughts. It teaches them how to care and share, rather than to be angry, bully and intimidate. Some of those children's tv programmes are pretty disgusting for the age groups, and everything they view teaches them something.

If you teach a dog to bite, it will bite because they can't reason. Neither can children 'reason' before a certain age..

I've got to agree with Venice and Granny I think the tv for toddlers which I watch now with my two year old is terrible, apart from Peppa Pig ,that's ok. I think it's a generation thing and to the younger ones we're considered outdated. Got to agree watch with mother and Andy Pandy ragtag and bobtail much much better. I've also noticed a lot of the progs for little ones all American and Canadian accents. Bring back some good old as you say Granny gentle to...

There is also the problem that many children are poked in front of a television without any adult available to explain anything to them.

One of the question on mental health tick box questionnaire is : Does the television give you messages ?

Think about it !

Did you all watch to the end of the annoying orange though ? Cant believe anyone would think its good viewing for tots to see something appearing to have its brains pulled out and looking scared whilst its friend stands by watching with also a scared look on its face. Its just unecessary gruesomeness.Its like prog makers are pushing the limits on trying to make horror films for little ones.

The 'Annoying Orange' clip was hideous. The characters even look evil, dead behind the eyes.....

The Orange thing is purile and banal crap ! The worst of what gets washed up on these shores from the other side of the pond. Not the slightest bit funny or entertaining. If idiots are sitting their young offspring down in front of this utter bilge, then Heaven help us all !
Sometimes, I really DO despair.

After about 3 minutes of it I lost the will to live. Pass the sickbag............
