Now I try to be a good parent and limit TV but my daughter is a fan of waking up at the crack of dawn no matter what so therefore she gets to watch a single show prior to breakfast. At 6am I am groggy enough to not really care which show she likes to watch and in truth I have some favorites as well. I loved the Jack’s Big Music Show era that was too short lived and am working on getting my 2 year old to appreciate that one whenever I can for my own selfish reasons. I still love the Backyardigans and the my personal favorite Pablo (I love any kids show the can do a metal opera based around dragons and knights!) as well as Little Einsteins. The recent infatuation with Maggie and The Ferocious Beast is more than tolerable as well. The point is I can name several shows that I can actually enjoy and even see the slightest bit of good in – except Jack as that is 100% good.
However, my daughter has a new show that she craves for at 6am every morning….
Dragontales! Wait these are tales about Dragons that lack any toughness or spines and have the sappiest into song ever recorded in the history of kids TV? Oh please tell me that this is going to be a short lived phase. Please tell me that by only taping and having her watch the 7 On Demand versions of this show I will be able to weed this one out just like I was able to do with earlier nemesis….Wow Wow Wubbzy!
