I'm Getting fed Up With These Shows
3 May 2005 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

I doubt if there's ever been 100 shows marketed exclusively for kids so this Channel 4 list cheats somewhat by including family shows . The winner at number one in the list was THE SIMPSONS but is this actually a show that's specifically produced for children ? I mean it started off as a spot on THE TRACEY ULLMAN SHOW and I doubt if you'll call Ms Ullman a children's entertainer , and much of the humour on THE SIMPSONS will go above children's heads . DOCTOR WHO is classed as a children's show ? Again I would class it as a family show and it's interesting to note that it' at it's best when it becomes too scary for 6 year olds . How can you compare classic DOCTOR WHO with BAGPUSS and BUTTON MOON ? I found out later ( And Jo points this out ) that Channel 4 wrote a list of 100 shows that they perceive are children's shows and it's then left for the voters to vote what one they think is best . This is entirely different from allowing people to make up their own mind as to what qualifies as a children's show . There's something else and that's when this show was produced Channel 4 were in negotiations to buy THE SIMPSONS . Strange that Homer Simpson also won THE 100 GREATEST TV CHARACTERS poll later on which leads me to think the poll might have been rigged
