Night garden – I just don't get it
It’s not aimed at you.
Though after a day of looking after a baby it’s about the most mentally demanding thing I could manage. They also conveniently give you a little summary of what happened at the end in case you didn’t have the capacity to follow it first time around.Posted 3 years agomonkeychildMember
Macapacca is niche (check out his steed), Upsy Daisy is a tart, Iggle Piggle is a wrong ‘un with insecurity issues, the Pontipines and Wattingers need to watch some tv (way too many kids), the Harhoos just do their thing. The Pinky Ponk and Ninky Nonk are under valued public sector workers.That is allPosted 3 years agoloddrikMember
It’s brilliant, I remember my eldest and I watching the first episode together and she loved it from then on. My second always preferred peppa pig, sadly as they are now 8 & 4 I don’t get to watch either of them now. Now I am stuck watching Phineas and Ferb, Camp Lakebottom and Crash & Bernstein…Posted 3 years agorobgclarksonMember
it’s the scale of things that enrages me.. at some point everyone can be in the ninky-nonk/pinky-ponk, then a scene later said vehicles only come up to chest height of makka-pakka.. who himself can be either the same height or smaller than oopsy-daisy…
that said, my boy absolutely loves the programme, and he’s 16 months old… take from that what you will

we reckon the pontipines and the wottingers are sicilian – tiny, incomprehensible language, moustache and odd hat for the dad, 8 kids, traditional dress, eating outside all the time
the eldest got bored of it thankfully, we probably won’t bother with the youngest, they are in the bath by the time it comes onPosted 3 years ago
An acquaintance of mine once stood up in the middle of a high-powered business meeting and announced “Daddy go wee-wee now” before leaving. He only realised later
I caught myself making “clip-clop” noises driving past a field of horses the other day.
I was the only one in the car.Posted 3 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
Sarah & Duck is just brilliant. The animation, the stories, the narration by the bloke who was the Tory MP in The Thick Of It, everything.
A current fave. And Roger Allam is perfect for the narration. In my mind I have him as Peter Mannion and Falstaff.
Quite like Charlie and Lola. Agree In the Night Garden is terrifying, although makes perfect sense to young minds whose imagination is yet to be destroyed by institutional thinking….Posted 3 years ago
