I can feel myself getting dumber thinking about it but it needs to be said

I hate Elmo.

Hate.

That damn Elmo's World song makes me cross-eyed.

How could you not love that song?
Ugh. I hate when my nieces want to watch it. It get so angry. I couldn't imagine being a parent and listening to it that much.

Oh and I'm still waiting to hear your prediction.

My Sissy G. just said the exact same thing tonight.
Has Elmo been in the media more?

Dorothy said...

Lol. I actually really like Elmo. I think it's because when Summer was really little, the only way I could get her to actually look at me was if I used an Elmo voice. But I can definitely see how someone could hate him/her/it.

So....no Tickle me Elmo from Santa this year???

Shanna has some Elmo dvd's if you want them. ;)

What bothers Shanna the most about Elmo is that Elmo never refers to Elmo with a pronoun. That bothers Shanna very much.

It's OK. My almost 3 year old told me that he doesn't like Elmo either.

Which sucks, because his brother really liked Elmo and I could use my Elmo voice to get him to do anything I wanted.

I suddenly have the urge to buy your kiddo some Elmo. :-/

My child is neglected; she doesn't watch Sesame Street. I don't want her to know her letters, numbers, or shapes. No way. All she needs to know is how to be a good Christian.

Sue said...

This is how I feel about old-school Electric Company. Irrational anger and hatred and wanting to kill people.

If I had it to do over, I wouldn't let my kids watch Sesame Street. I seriously believe it teaches children to have short attention spans!

AzĂșcar said...

Mrs. Clark, it's actually slower paced now than it used to be.

Sesame Street does a great job of tailoring their programming to fit the way children learn (not as great as parental interaction, of course.) They looked at clinical research and slowed their programming down, fewer cut aways, less movement here to there, etc. Of all the kids' programming, I still trust Sesame Street the most.

Elmo??? How about the utter catastrophe that is "The Wiggles?"

Ariel said...

Agreed. We boycott Elmo's World in our household, along with the Imagination Movers and Special Agent Oso. The latter being possibly the worst children's show of all time. Whatever happend to simply counting bats and writing a "Y" with a giant black crayon? Ahh how I miss the good ole (way less annoying) days.
