Hard as I tried, I was unable to find ANYTHING redeeming or educational about it. Thinking I was missing something, and the target audience must surely be infants (although I'm not sure why anyone would put an infant in front of a television), I went on the website, and found to my dismay that the target audience is three to six-year-olds. HUH???? Please tell me this is a joke.
Let's think about this a minute. Sesame Street, Dora, Blues Clues, Clifford, Boobah. As Big Bird says, "One of these things is not like the others".
I am a preschool teacher and have been for many years (in fact, my Masters' thesis had to do with children's video) and I can tell you with a great deal of assuredness that none of the children in my class would find Boobah entertaining because there isn't enough content to stimulate them. The characters are one-dimensional, non-verbal, and in the case of the creepy little Boobah critters themselves, downright pointless. How is a child going to learn anything from characters who do nothing but spin around and fart? Let's give our children more credit than that.
From my own personal experience, watching my daughter's face when the show went off really says it all. She's six now, and she never asked me to watch it again. It has become a joke in our house now.
"Want to watch Boobah? I know how much you love it!" "NOOOO!" she screams and runs out of the room laughing.
Out of the mouths of babes.
