Cameron's House of Fun

Fatherhood, politics, education, random thoughts (heavy on the random thoughts) and stuff (always stuff).

The. Best. Job. Ever.

As a parent you watch a lot of TV you wish you didn't. Well,that's assuming you have a TV to begin with.

Anyway, there are a lot of kids shows that make me very very very angry.

Too much yelling. Too much product tie in. Too much. So the ones I like, I like a lot.

Dora is pretty good (though there is yelling and product tie in) from an educational point of view. Sagwa is amazing, as are The Koala Brothers and a few others.


My favorite is
This is Daniel Cook. The premise is this: Daniel goes and does some new activity or job with some adult.

The kid has the best job ever.


And he's like 8.


Christine and I watch, mesmerized.


Lucas watches it the way he watches most TV when not sick, like a guerrilla attack.
Whoosh "oh, c'est Daniel.... ooh, autobus jaune" etc.

I've always wondered what Tele-Tubbies would be like if you watched it after smoking a joint.

BBC Kids has some very, very good shows if you have access to it. Check out Balamory or Bits & Bobs for starters.

Don, they have some new thing by the same people as Teletubbies, but like in space.

If you watch that you will no longer have to wonder.
