Why don't today's teens/tweens have an SM:TV or a Live and Kicking to watch?


#1

As above


#2

Probably too busy climbing out of K-Holes to get up that early.


#3

Kids tv channels


#4

Because you can watch music videos online now.


#5

Do kids like gungeing on TV these days?


#6

similar sort of thing - they now knife people after surrounding them in a circle. oddly it still features Dave Benson Phillips


#7

they watch youtubers instead of ant & dec & don’t actually care about music videos or performances because they can stream Drake mixtapes while snapchatting instead


#8

#9

Ahh, the YouTubers of course!

Someone should put some YouTubers on Saturday morning TV to see what happens


#10

Calm down granddad.

I don’t really understand why I watched things like Going Live or Saturday Superstore now. Life must have been really dull.


#11

probably end up with too many holocaust jokes to be broadcast at that time


#12

Fair point that actually


#13

Hello Theodore, might I inquire as to whether your youngun is still into Paw Patrol?


#14

She has branched out a little with Bubble Guppies also being popular. Unfortunately BG are all 22 min episodes so sometimes she has 1 BG then 1 PP (half the length).

She also likes Angelina Ballerina.


#15

I’ve never heard of Bubble Guppies, they sound loathsome.

Angelina Ballerina is that fucking mouse right?


#16

There’s Scrambled on ITV on Saturday mornings and Sam and Mark’s Big Friday Wind-Ups on CBBC.


#17

Sam & Mark’s Friday wind up.

I really quite like Sam & Mark.


#18

Pretty sure Bubble Guppies played with Coldplay at the Brits this year


#19

Yeah she is. Although I believe there was an original BBC animation that was stop-motion or something, while this is a CGI more recent thing (UK accents at least).

Bubble Guppies does sound terrible but it’s actually decent, although it would be nice to have a non-US accent version. They try to actually teach stuff to kids in a way that is fun and bright. She learned about what a skeleton was and how it worked from that show, for example.

Hug me.
