I wish somebody would have pulled me aside before Jonah was born and said something like this:
“You’re about to watch a lot of silly TV, my friend.”
As most parents know…you end up seeing some silly stuff once kids start showing up.
Some of it you hate, some of it you don’t understand,
and some of it – you start to love.
So, for this week’s Friday Five, I’m sharing “Five Kid Shows That You Would Probably Enjoy.”
Feel free to add your own suggestions to the list!
#1. PHINEAS AND FERB
Let’s make a list…
A show about 2 step-brothers who sincerely create massive projects during summer with no thought of financial gain or worldly success?
A sister determined to “bust” her brothers and yet constantly fails?
A great, punk theme song?
If you haven’t watched this show, you’ve gotta’ check it out.
You’re going to love these brothers!
#2.THE PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR
It doesn’t matter if you liked the Madagascar movies or not…somebody at HQ has created a genius show. Your kids will love King Julien, but the covert-op-1940-dialogue-spouting penguins are what wins parents.
This show is ridiculous and zany, complete with some great one-liners that often get missed among all the slapstick stuff on the show. Go ahead and watch it…everybody deserves a little silliness now and then, right?
#3. LEAGUE OF SUPER EVIL
Everybody loves villains, but these three fumbling bad guys (and their pet, “Doomageddon,”) are so inept at being bad, you actually WANT them to succeed.
Moms and Dads will love “leader” Voltar’s evil quips and maniacal laughs…this guy wants to be bad so badly and it’s great fun watching him fail.
#4. IMAGINATION MOVERS
This show has fantastic music, great lead characters and does a great job of balancing the silly stuff with the educational. Supporting characters are done well, too…”Uncle Knit Knots” is a really creative that my kids really dig.
This show will suck you in…you’ll think you’re just casually watching and then somebody will change the channel on you and you’ll scream like an infant.
#5. AMERICA’S FUNNIEST VIDEOS
Say what you will about LOST or NYPD Blue…the dude who thought up AFV is a genius.
You will not find a kid on this planet who dislikes this show.
What’s not to love, parents?
You sit in a living room with your kids and laugh for 44 minutes?
Don’t act like you don’t love it, Moms and Dads.
What other kid shows do you secretly (or not-so-secretly) enjoy watching?
