So I’m sitting here minding my own business when Nicole notifies me of this show on Treehouse called In the Night Garden, and to put it on immediately. Reason being? Their troubsyphone. If you know anything about me, you know I think “it’s fun gettin into troubsies“.
So anyways, what the fuck kinda show is this? Kids actually watch this thing? It reminded me of Teletubbies at first, and upon further research I discovered that’s because they have the same creators, writers etc. Big surprise. The main characters have equally ridiculous names in Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, and Makka Pakka. There’s also a some group of random things called The Tombliboos.
While I was researching what exactly this show was supposed to be about, I discovered the line “Unlike most television programmes aimed at toddlers, In The Night Garden is not primarily intended to be educational. Instead, it is intended to help children relax, and achieve calming relationships with their parents.” Umm… WHAT?! Toddlers need this fucking show to relax and have a good relationship with their parents?! My god, is parenting in really this big of a shithole in society? I guess parents really are allowing the television to be the babysitter nowadays.
If you feel so inclined, YouTube this stupid show, and form your own opinions.
