I was watching TV with my 4 year old the other day.  Usually she has the TV on while I am writing or commenting or otherwise trying to build my empire.

If you have a 4 year old or anyone who records their age in single digits with “and a quarter” you will know that they get focused on one particular TV show and beat the hell out of it.

My oldest daughter was born right before DVD became big.  She had a lot of video tapes.  There were certain ones that I prayed would break.  Some did.  Some “really” did.  One I know I stepped on “accidentally”.  It played for another year or so.  Then DVD came along.  You can’t let them degrade like a videotape.  They just keep going and going.

It is bad if you know where the scratch is on the DVD and it seems weird to not have it there if that show is ever on TV.  So now it comes to this.  Kids get obsessed.  All of my kids have been obsessed with the Wiggles.  My daughters have been obsessed with Dora The Explorer.  My youngest still is.  She is also obsessed with Scooby Doo.  I like Scooby Doo.

With that obsession you get many many repeats of theme songs.  They watch multiple episodes, get the CD, and sing them all of the time.  It is inevitable that those songs get stuck in your head.  And after approximately 12 million times “Dora, Dora, Dora the explorer” starts to get…..well….twisted in my mind.

A decidely PG-13 begins to form.  Followed by something that would make George Carlin blush and sailors run away crying.  I won’t write them here, this is a family friendly blog.  You can fill in the blanks for yourself.  Sometimes that is just how my mind twists…..

Don’t tell my toddler about the barbecue of Scooby Doo or Boots the monkey’s after hours endeavors.

Do you have any kids themes that need to be remade???  Comments are waiting!

  1. I don't know how old you will allow the youngster to be but I cringe when I have to move my 26 year olds car because I never know what might come on the radio. I don't think anybody as written a decent song since 1980 or so. My kids predated Dora – thank heaven.

    • there have been a few since 1980 but not many. I lament the fact that there is not a good rock station in SLC anymore, they are calling 1980's stuff classic and not playing anything older. harmonies, melodies and tunes have been lost….My 9 year old is getting into the teeny bopper stuff and it makes me cringe. But my son is almost 7 and belts out Kansas, Boston and queen at the top of his lungs. There is hope for him.

  2. If you try hard enough you can do that to just about any song ever made. Or dialogue in films.

    I refuse to pursue that thought any further lest I wreck some of my memories of Disney Classics even further…
