Ricky's Room is a cheap and obvious rip off of Barney the Dinosaur. If you change Barney to a hippo and his purple colour to blue, you have Ricky from Ricky's room. It is exactly like Barney except the kids are even more annoying, the writing is even worse. The songs are all simply pathetic. The lessons they learn are very basic even for kids, do you really need to spend a whole hour just to teach them several times to pick up their things? Maybe but could you at least do it in a creative way instead of having poorly singing kids shouting "picking up my things picking up my things yay!!!!" The poor people in the suits have no idea what they're doing, it is as if they told them to just dance and move around and then later made up whatever dialogue they wanted to and songs and who cares if they're moving appropriately or not, just stick words over it. This show seems like it was written in five minutes on a napkin AFTER it was taped on the way home in the car from the studio. Did I say studio? More like this show was taped in one of those kid's parents' basement.
