Wiggle'd Out

I've suffered through Barney for an entire a year sometimes five times a day. I managed to enjoy Blue's Clues simply because it gave me a rest from Barney. I welcomed the Wonder Pets Tuck, Linny, Ming Ming too since I have this weird thing about talking animals that just makes me laugh every time and the Wonder Pets look real (at least to me). I love the Backyardigans. Know most the songs by heart and have my favorite episodes that I keep on TiVo. I even laugh out loud at the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse every time Pete dresses up in a disguise and the gang is clueless as to who could be underneath. (Um maybe it's the only person on this show not wearing a sheet over his body?) But I can't stand.....I despise....I HATE THOSE ##@$@! WIGGLES.

I don't like Jeff, I don't like the sleepy purple one, or the fake guitar playing bug-eyed one, or the red one with the sideburns who loves fruit salad, or even Captian Feathersword. Still they seem to hold a special place in Fred's heart and make him smile so I must suffer for a half hour everyday. (Notice I didn't include a picture...I can't even stand to look at them online)

Jeff is the sleepy purple oned! Don't worry the obession with the Wiggles doesn't seem to last as long as the other obessions...too bad you're not a mom...Greg starts looking buff and nice after about 100 episodes.

The Wiggles are just creepy. No one will blame you for banning them. I'm just glad my kids haven't somehow discovered them and demanded to watch them or to get merchandise.

Nothing like a bunch of men in Spandex dancing around singing annoying songs.

This is why I absolutely never let my son watch the Wiggles. Not even a glimpse! Because I just didn't want to suffer.

He never got to watch Barney either.
