Peppa is the most an­noy­ing

Western Times - - LIFE | FAMILY LIFE -

PAR­ENTS have re­vealed Peppa Pig is the worst kids’ TV show they’re forced to watch, based on an­noy­ing char­ac­ters and bor­ing plots.

SpongeBob SquarePants was rated the most pop­u­lar in the sur­vey by web­site Child­care.co.uk, which has a data­base of more than 1.2 mil­lion par­ents.

The web­site dis­cov­ered the show fea­tur­ing a hu­man-like pig and her mam­mal friends was the most an­noy­ing.

When asked why, nearly half (46%) said Peppa’s at­ti­tude and man­ner was the rea­son and more than a quar­ter (28%) said the sto­ry­lines.

In com­par­i­son, al­most half (48%) opted for Nick­elodeon’s iconic show SpongeBob SquarePants as their favourite.

Nearly two-thirds of re­spon­dents said shows were bet­ter when they were grow­ing up.

Richard Con­way, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer and founder of Child­care UK, said: “The sub­ject of which chil­dren’s pro­grams par­ents love and hate is some­thing we’ve seen dis­cussed a lot, so we thought we’d look into it prop­erly.

“As most par­ents will know, find­ing a tele­vi­sion pro­gram that your chil­dren like can be hard enough, let alone try­ing to find one you don’t find too ir­ri­tat­ing!”
