Dear Cbeebies Whats going on with Bing?


Dear Cbeebies

We are regular watchers of your shows (maybe too much sometimes, like the time we watched the same programs twice round during the newborn Son Son days). I have to question this one show as every time I watch it I am full of questions. I can not help it I have even discussed it with friends and we are puzzled. My toddlers love Bing, maybe a little too much, it has become a little routine of ours to watch it in the morning before setting of to do anything.

So here is my questions

What is going on with flop?

Who are Bings parents?

 why are the carers animals smaller?

and why oh why do they have such small legs?

You see as a parent who lets there children watch too much tv and watch it them selves its good to question these things. My little mind needs to know why and how can they climb stairs with those legs and why is Bings head 4 times the size of flop?

I am a bit sad I know but I have gone a little crazy with all this kids tv, you may understand if you ever had to endure Peppa Pig for hours on end you start to get the Peppa shakes and you hear that little annoying Pig everywhere. Thank God they stopped that Peppa Pig Channel. Anyway I digress If you wouldn't mind I am after some answers. I need to know the facts before I get interrogated by the toddler, its only a matter of time too she is very nosy.

Thanks for all your Programs how ever strange they may be.

PS: Can you tell the Panda to put on some trousers, playing in the park in your pants is so last year.
Also don't tell my toddler about this post she will go mad at me for it.

  6. I have never seen Bing but Peppa used to drive me mad. Why is it Peppa Pig, Zoe Zebra, Danny Dog etc but her brother is George! Why not Peter Pig? It makes no sense!

  9. I have got passed the Cbeebies stage thankfully. Although saying that certain of their programs helped me remain sort of sane 9 years ago!

  11. We have been permanently stuck on Disney Junior since we got it over a year ago after years of only cbeebies lol I love to sit and question logic in any tv though (as much as my family hate it) and kids tv is the best for it!

  28. Dad who tries to be like Flop12 June 2015 at 06:28

    I'll give it a try....

    1/ I think Flop is actually Bing's binky/favourite toy that's 'come to life' in the way things tend to do in kids' imaginations. Maybe add in a dash of some psychologist's idea about what a "favoured toy" feels like for a child as an emotional attachment/comfort.

    2/ it seems in vogue for the adults to not be present in the shows (eg Charlie and Lola), so that the focus on the interactions between children characters.

    3/ The carer animals are smaller to support (2) i.e. the kids are the show, not the adult characters.

    4/ No idea. But that's nothing compared to In the Night Garden...!
