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
