Dear Cbeebies Whats going on with Bing?
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.

Ha ha - the best thing to do is NEVER question kids TV ;-)ReplyDelete
Have you seen how many different jobs poor Miss Rabbit does in Peppa Pig lol
That poor rabbit forced to work all those hours the town would collapse without her!Delete
Childrens TV has really gone down hill, I'm dreading coming home to hours of Peppa Pig!ReplyDelete
Exactly what I want to know! Are the carers the parents? #binkylinkyReplyDelete
i really dont envy kids tv these days, i stil love the older traditional ones xReplyDelete
This made me laugh. Thank goodness mine has grown out of cbeebies!ReplyDelete
BRING BACK SESAME STREET! :-)ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Not seen this show, but I still have a lot of unanswered questions about In the Night Garden.ReplyDelete
I'm sure the creators were on LSD. I heard it tooka million to make each episode crazyDelete
When my son was little it was all Pingu and The Teletubbies. Let me tell you there was enough explanation then too :)ReplyDelete
I have got passed the Cbeebies stage thankfully. Although saying that certain of their programs helped me remain sort of sane 9 years ago!ReplyDelete
My kids are 16 and 12 so we're long past the CBeebies stage!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Haha love this. I question these things too, especially Flop being so little!!! My little man loves it though!!!!ReplyDelete
Lol childrens TV is quite strange when you look at it through adult eyes.ReplyDelete
I love Bing and so do my girls! Flop is my favourite! Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinkyReplyDelete
Ha I have too many questions about kids TV.... How has Oopsy Daisy not got an warning for constantly touching others for example!ReplyDelete
We haven't seen Bing but I have many, many questions for a number of CBeebies programmes!!ReplyDelete
Haa haa - Sebby loves it too and Baby Jake - very strange shows!ReplyDelete
I haven't seen this one but many of them do leave you with a lot of questions. Will Baby Jake's parents keep having children until they get to Z?ReplyDelete
Haha this is hilarious! :) Unfortunately no kiddos here so I can't help with all your questions but agree with playing in the park in your underwear - it's passe ;)ReplyDelete
Haha don't think I've seen this one! It's crazy because, like you, I (and the kids) used to watch it for hours on end when they were little, but now they're at school we don't see as much! I love CBeebies :)ReplyDelete
haha this made me laugh! It is really strange. And the panda in y-fronts?! #sharewithmeReplyDelete
Haha this made me chuckle! My toddler likes Bing too. You've got end thinking with those questions too...where the hell are Bings parents?! #mmwbhReplyDelete
We watch a lot of Bing too, you've got me thinking now! #sharewithmeReplyDelete
lol, I don't know Bing but I too am concerned about the small legs now. Lets start a petition!ReplyDelete
This made me laugh. hahaha Although I don't watch it so can't help on what's going on. Disney Jr is a main one or disney movies in this house. We kinda stick to USA shows. Naughty I know living in the UK. lol Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. #sharewithmeReplyDelete
Hahaha I have exactly the same questions! Monkey adores bing bunny but I try not to think too hard about these things otherwise it makes my head hurt! Fab post :) xxReplyDelete
I LOVE Bing! I wish I was Flop - or had his patience at least. That little guy is a saint!ReplyDelete
I'll give it a try....ReplyDelete
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...!
I've just published a blog post that I think explains it: https://medium.com/@boxed/overanalyzing-kids-shows-bing-5a9711a6d2be?source=linkShare-8ad86cc82e5f-1502728965ReplyDelete
