ABC Kids’ fans go ape


PARENTS have taken the ABC to task after it dropped a popular children’s program.

Frustrated parents bombarded the ABC Kids for Parents Facebook page yesterday, claiming their children cried and had “meltdowns” after Curious George – a show about an intelligen­t monkey – was pulled from the 6.20pm timeslot on ABC for Kids.

Some of the posts included photos of crying children. Most parents said the show was part of their child’s bedtime routine.

ABC Children’s Television channel manager Luka Skandle said the program was being rested and would return on October 5.
