When you mention "Hey Baberiba" to a swede, he (or she) probably will think about the parody they make of the Swedish Royal family, especially King Carl XVI Gustav. And that's because it's the only thing funny about this show! When I watch it, I'm waiting for "Familjen" as they call it. The other parodies suck!
A parody of a royal family like in "Hey Baberiba" probably wouldn't be allowed in any monarchy but Sweden. Perhaps in Norway or Denmark, but definitely not Britain, Thailand, Japan or any other more conservative monarchy.
As a swede, I believe in monarchy. And maybe a Swedish royalist isn't supposed to laugh at "Familjen", but I can't help myself thinking the parodies of Carl XVI Gustav, Queen Silvia, Princesses Victoria & Madeleine and Prince Carl-Philip are extremely funny!
10/10 to "Familjen", 1/10 to the rest of the show give the result 6/10!
