Top 10 Educational Kids Show ClichesnaFrovivuS There's a reason why educational shows like Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and Sesame Street were so successful. The main thing is that they didn't follow these cliches.
The Top Ten
I can at least tolerate Sesame Street for having a catchy theme. But some others have annoying repetitive theme songs that make you want to cut your ears off. - naFrovivuS
The creator of this list passed away - PatrickStar3
For example: Yo Gabba Gaba - Cartoonfan202
Too many preschool shows are formulaic. Dora, Super Why, Barney, and so many more follow the exact same plot line every episode. - Cartoonfan202
I'm thinking of Dora here - TwilightKitsune
Seriously, like I said, Sesame Street is incredibly successful because they have variety. - naFrovivuS
Take Bo on the go and the Bubble Guppies stories for exapmle. Even Masha's Spooky Stories. No matter how different they seem, they're all the same.V 2 Comments
These protagonists are the smartest, coolest, and kindest people in their worlds. They have tons of superpowers, abilities, can solve every problem, always win everything, always gets to be the hero, and everyone loves them. They also NEVER make mistakes and if they do, everyone forgets about it in 2 seconds.
Dora (Dora the Explorer)
Blaze (Blaze and the Monster Machines)
Mickey Mouse (Clubhouse/Roadster Racers)
Captain Jake (Jake and the Neverland Pirates)
Sofia (Sofia the First)
Milli, Geo, and Bot (Team Umizoomi)
Barney (Barney and Friends) - Cartoonfan202
3 words DORA THE EXPLORER same with Go Diego Go too
Team Umizoomi and Oso.
"Oh no, there's a [harmless object] blocking our path! What do we do? " - naFrovivuS
Seriously, some shows (Oobi) just have the absolute worst dialogue. - naFrovivuS
If you watch Daniel Tiger, there are so many cringey and cheesy lines.. - Cartoonfan202
Some preschool shows suck for being too campy and preachy with their messages. - Cartoonfan202
Friendship is Magic is in the Title.
Barney. - naFrovivuS
Yeah fine, I'll admit sometimes you have to grab the viewers' attention. But if a kids show does this every other scene, then the viewers will just be confused. - naFrovivuS
Sometimes breaking the fourth wall isn't bad. - Cartoonfan202
Like SpongeBob - PatrickStar3
Dora started this stupid cliché. - DoraTheHorror
For example: the villains from Bubble Guppies, Swiper the Fox, and so many more. They get instantly reformed by having a talking to which is very unrealistic. The only preschool villain that is good is Robbie Rotten - Cartoonfan202
Never have I seen an educational kid show talk about taking action when things get bad (other than Lazy Town). - naFrovivuS
I like them if they're funny - TwilightKitsune
Like I said Pj Masks!
At least Mister Rogers did well with its gentle slow pacing. But others are TOO slow. - Cartoonfan202
Peppa Pig especially. - naFrovivuS
While some shows like Wonder Pets actually managed to make this work, for the most part this is one of the most frustrating for me. We want to see what happens next and they just sit there and sing for about 5 minutes. - Rocko
I'm thinking of Wonder Pets here. There's no need to cram 20 songs into an 11 minute episode - Cartoonfan202
Some shows just have maybe one or even no song in an episode. Others just keep going on with songs. - naFrovivuS
Yeah - PatrickStar3
Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows all day? I don't think so. - naFrovivuS
So cringeworthy... - Cartoonfan202
Well, you wouldn't want your show to have 3 people in it. - Cartoonfan202
I regret putting this one. - naFrovivuS
Yeah to many - PatrickStar3
Hey a ten year old boy travels with two teens, to catch and battle. Its one of the longest running Animes if you watched, know and enjoyed the original 90s version the most you are labelled a genwunner. Not forgetting the songs. I heard kids had seizures once?
Examples: Pj Masks
Dora The Explorer
Sofia The First
D O R A THE MURDER EXPLORER
Pj masks for example.
*cough cough* Caillou - naFrovivuS
To be honest, Caillou's animation was decent until they started using Flash. - ItsPisces
Because people think television should always be education not entertain.
Like hob Goblin!
Example: The VeggieTales Show
For example: Waybuloo
Examples: Super WHY!
BeatBo & Friends
For example: Wee Sing - Cinus-Findus
Examples: Sofia the First
