We are a Disney family. No if’s, and’s, or but’s. I’m not even sure we get the Nick Kids channel. Don’t know. In keeping with my overlord, the great and powerful Walt, there’s a lot of Disney Junior in my house and believe me, if it isn’t on Disney Junior, then I probably haven’t seen it.
They’ve started airing this show from Australia called Bluey and it’s kind of amazing. I’m not entirely sure that this show is actually for kids. The kids are funny and it follows the two dog children, Bluey and Bingo, but the highlights are definitely the Dad and Mom. They act like real parents do and it’s hilarious. I’ll be honest, most of her shows, I kind of zone out. This one, however, I am an active viewer.
I’ve left you a couple of gems below to laugh and giggle. Hopefully, this will brighten your day.
This clip is from a show where Muffin (the black and white dog) has started skipping his/her nap each day. This one actually had me cackling out loud because we’ve all been there.
This clip is life at my house everyday. Yes, the stuff I make you do is boring but it serves a purpose. Sunscreen! Sunscreen is important, especially when your skin is basically transparent.
When I was telling Ross about this episode and explaining that the Dad in Bluey and Ross forgetting stuff was par for the course, he said, “well, that’s not fair, I’m boring and forgetful”. Touche, Sir. Touche.
Also this one, cause I love tormenting my child with impossible but stupid, unnecessary obstacles.
I’m not saying if you’re 30 years old and don’t have kids, go watch this show. That would be creepy and weird. But, if you have kids, this one wouldn’t be mind-numbing or a chore to watch.
The opening sequence! Watch the Dad dog (blue dog) dancing.
For those of you that have children, you may have seen PJ Masks on Disney Junior. For those of you that haven’t ever seen this show, it’s basically about three kids, 6-9 years old, who have pajamas that turn them into superheros; Catboy, Owelette, and Gecko.
They fight three villains that are also 6-9 years old; Luna Girl, Romeo, and Night Ninja. If it sounds ridiculous, you’re right. It is. It’s a kids’ show.
However, let’s talk about this.
First, what parents don’t know that their kids are out and about at night? We have six kids (at the least) running around causing trouble. I say “at the least” because Night Ninja has a team of – I shit you not – ninjalinos that are smaller than he is. So, there’s a bunch of toddlers running around the city at night in addition to the above six. And noone knows! This city is, evidently, filled with neglectful parents. Also, when are these kids getting any sleep. These must be the most exhausted kids on the planet.
Second, they have a pretty sophisticated headquarters.
The amount of computer equipment and the transportation are well above what any regular kid would have access to. That thing has bay doors that open for the respective vehicles. Who is funding this? Where are they getting this stuff from? Also, how does no one notice a gigantic tower WITH A BRIDGE in the middle of an island in this city?
There are a couple of things to talk about regarding the heros. Clearly, Owelette is the smartest of the three. She gets ignored alot but that’s typical of female/male relationships. Poor Gecko seems to be the Butters of the group which just makes me feel bad for him but they at least listen to his ideas.
Catboy, the alpha of the group, is horrible though. He makes poor decisions. He’s selfish. He diminishes the value of his friends and their abilities. Basically, he’s a bully but he always feels bad about it later. So, I guess that excuses it…right? Hi, I see some domestic violence calls in Catboy’s future.
Now, onto the villains. Always my favorite part.
The clear winner in the villain category is Romeo. His plans to take over the world are bold, well thought out, and honestly on the level of a Bond villain. If he wasn’t such a pansy ass and continue to run away after the PJ Masks barely defeat him, he would be a great come from behind player to dominate the game. He stole their powers. He attacked them with his rotten egg/stinky machine. He’s constructed robots. He rewired the grid in the city to overtake it and put up flags of himself on every rooftop. Come on, if that isn’t Bond villain material, I don’t know what is.
What about the other two? They have to be good, right? Wrong.
First, Luna Girl is basically a thief. She is probably a kleptomaniac and could be brought back into a fold of a functioning society with a little behavioral therapy. Plus, her plans aren’t all that grand. She’s stolen a bunch of butterflies from the zoo to replace her moth helpers. She stole a hot air balloon so that others couldn’t enjoy themselves. Pretty menial and petty stuff. Not that inventive.
Then, the Night Ninja probably has a little histrionic personality disorder. Everything he does is about him and being the center of attention. He stole Gecko’s birthday cake and then made the ninjalinos celebrate his “birthday” instead. He stole the kids’ art projects and replaced them with his own. Honestly, I feel like if the parents in this city were paying more attention to their kids instead of whatever they hell they were doing, these kids wouldn’t be out all night. Just sayin’
