What the hell is this Cr*P
6 May 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Wow I actually watched a full episode of this and the plot was horrible for a kids TV show. I think even Hi-5 has a better plot than this. They sing about the same thing over and over again, burning it into ones head. I have asked friends what their children thought of it and they said their children could not watch it, it made them cry and start screaming. I think he said the kids first words were NO MORE SHAPIES. I would honestly like to know who comes up with ideas like this and why. I don't think this was an educational show or even an entertaining one. I'm sure many copies of the shapies DVD will sell perhaps as many as 3 copies. I would like to speak to the creators of this show and ask them why they insist on dumbing down our children.
