Growing up in the early 2000's, I guess you could say I had quite the cultured television experience. Wednesdays at 3, you could find me watching Arthur; shortly followed by Word Girl or Martha Speaks. All super educational, super weird, super nostalgia-y. I mean, there's nothing like aardvarks, taking dogs, and a monkey superhero. Seriously, I learned more math skills from Cyber Chase than from my freshman Algebra 2 course.
Where am I going with this? wElL, as a 2000's kid, I have STANDARDS for toddler television. And Peppa Pig- *sharp inhale*. PEPPA PIG. I just-
I have mixed feelings about the protagonist. I mean, I do love how sassy she was, slamming down the phone after Suzy Sheep (uGh I hate her though) bragged about her whistling capabilities. There's also Miss Rabbit. I heard she needs back surgery; her back broke from CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF THE SHOW. Seriously, the woman runs everything in that town; according to Google, Miss Rabbit has 47 jobs. Mad respect. And that time Mummy Pig jumped out of the helicopter? Mission Impossible who? That's an epic gamer moment if I've ever seen one. Oh, and Bing Bong Bing by Madame Gazelle is such a bop. Don't forget Grandpa Pig- filled with wisdom for all the 3-year-old viewers about, er... fishing and stuff.
Alas, Peppa has her faults. Like the time she downright shamed Daddy Pig for taking 5 portions of spaghetti. GURL STOP. I mean, who doesn't take more than 3 portions of spaghetti. IT'S SPAGHETTI *munches aggressively*. And then she has the aUdAcItY to make fun of Daddy Pig?
I- *takes a breathe*
I mean, parents should choose what they want to expose their kids to. Either Spaghetti shaming Peppa Pig. Or educational PBS kids, and they'll end up an intuectual like your's truly *cut to clip of me eating in class and confusing the pencil with the baby carrot. Led doesn't taste like chicken.*
DID I JUST PHYCOANYLYZE A CHILDREN'S SHOW INSTEAD OF STUDYING FOR GRAMMAR?
pls tell me someone here knows these pbs shows
