My daughter likes TV pretty well. She isn’t obsessed, but there are some shows that she will ask for. Peppa Pig is one of those. I can’t stand that show. I don’t mind watching Winnie the Pooh or Sesame Street, though. Those aren’t too bad. Recently, she has found a new show that she really enjoys: Bubble Guppies.
It’s about these little fish people. They kind of look like mermaids, but they are really small in comparison to the other fish. They all have fish related names, like Gil, and they attend this little school with a teacher that looks like a massive goldfish.
They have a ton of songs that they sing, and there are a couple that make it into every episode. The song about lunch and the “line up” song happen in every single show. They also tend to remake a lot of popular songs. They even remade “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga, which was just weird. It’s interesting to try to figure out what songs they’re using, because the lyrics often have nothing to do with the original.
When it comes to kids’ shows, it’s not the most annoying one ever. I can imagine I will be more annoyed after I’ve seen every episode about 10 times, but, for now, it doesn’t bother me.
I really wonder what my daughter sees in this show. I knew she would like it because she loves fish. We always stop by the fish tank in the library, and she could watch them for an hour without getting bored. And this show is basically fish. She always points out the actual fish that are swimming around in the background. But, as long as the show makes her happy, I guess I’ll just deal with it.
It’s funny because my friend’s son is obsessed with this show. I don’t have many friends with toddlers, but I’m guessing that this is one of the more popular shows. It’s all colorful, and it has lots of music.
Oh, the things we put up with as parents.
