Hate me all you want, I just dislike this show, 7 September 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

This is certainly not the worst kids shows ever, but I just don't like it. I liked the idea, and while it does achieve what it set out to do, to entertain children, adults I don't think will be as impressed. I don't like the visuals that much. The sets and effects seem tacky and the Boohbahs' designs are "creepy". The music is for me repetitive and forgettable with a truly poor intro, likewise with the humour. And the dancing nothing more than basic steps and the Boohbahs bumping into each other, while the story lines while occasionally colourful are simplistic and dull. And sorry I just didn't learn anything. The characters are annoying(for me) too, and the narration is dull and deserved better material. To conclude, not a good show, good for the target audience but perhaps little beyond that. 2/10 Bethany Cox
