Sneak Previews with Skorpen and Skorpen

9 09 2016

Note: since I seem to have worked myself into a perfect rage/shame paralysis over everything that matters, I’m going back to blogging about things that don’t matter, as if they do.

Wyatt and I have made extensive studies of children’s television. We put in the hours, and now we are the experts. Despite our often sharply divided opinions, we present here our combined ranking of shows, from worst to best.

Super Why

Wyatt: Cartoons! Plus the main guy’s name is Wyatt! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: From the way they toss around the “super” prefix, it’s obvious the creators have never read a comic in their lives. 😑😑😑😑

Curious George

Wyatt: Cartoons! Antics! Squeaky babbling! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: Monkeys have tails. George is clearly a chimpanzee. Stop calling him a monkey! πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸŽ“

Thomas and Friends

Wyatt: Cartoons! Trains! Thomas! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: Sir Toppemhat. Top EM hat?? What the £*<# is that?! It makes my teeth curl every time I hear it. 😑😑😑😁

Dinosaur Train 

Wyatt: Cartoons! Trains! Dinosaurs! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: Who designed that train? Willy Wonka’s meth-head uncle? 😑😑😲😺

Ready, Jet, Go! 

Wyatt: Cartoons! Space! Amy Mainzer! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: Mindy stays home and plays in the sandbox, while all her friends blast off into space, and she’s fine with it? That’s just not believable. πŸ˜‘πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ˜‘


Wyatt: Cartoons! Animals! Emotions! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: Drawing broken lines for the sake of broken lines? No thank you. γ€°γ€°γ€°πŸ˜‘

Nature Cat

Wyatt: Cartoons! Animals! Kate Micucci! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: What’s the deal with Hal’s nose? πŸ‘ƒβ“β“πŸ˜‘

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood

Wyatt: Daniel Tiger!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: Avoid episode 108 at all costs. β˜£πŸ™ˆπŸš«β˜’

Sesame Street

Wyatt: Muppets! Songs! Elmo! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: I feel old. πŸ‘΄πŸ»πŸ‘΄πŸ»πŸ‘΄πŸ»πŸ‘΄πŸ»

Wild Kratts

Wyatt: Cartoons! Animals! Mild peril! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: Howcome those guys get youthful cartoon versions of themselves? πŸ‘΄πŸ»πŸ’₯βž‘οΈπŸ‘±πŸ»

Odd Squad

Wyatt: Kids! Wackiness! Problem solving! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: I legitimately enjoy this show. 😊😊😊😳

Peg + Cat

Wyatt: Cartoons! Musical numbers! Number numbers! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Neal: As a sometime professional animator, I can unequivocally state that Peg + Cat is the winner. πŸŽ“πŸŽ“πŸŽ“πŸ†
