    Whether you agree or disagree, you have to admit that it's a hot-button issue.

    I absolutely agree that this is a hot-button issue. While I don't think Boobah is "corrupting" our children in the traditional sense of the word, I do think it is making our children (meaning the ones that we've had together, danjfriedman) very, very stupid. I suppose in that way, it's corrupting their brains. Or at least eroding their brains.

    More importantly though, I saw a description of Boobah today by my cable providers that described the motions the Boobahs were going to do. It said something like "They scrunch up and then stretch their arms out. Meanwhile, in storyland, Grandpapa, Brother, and Sister find three large bells."

    the flashy colors, stupid squeeling noises and fart noises when they walk must be sublimnal mind messages. Can you say hipnotizing? Sorry for my poor spelling.

    How come the people ever introduce this show badly and there are less and less peoplee that love it. What's wrong with this show? It's not poisioning the children's mind they only show imagination and they always excerise but please check the review...

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I soooo agree this show is horrible and just a horror for children to be watching. I do babysitting and I must say the kids I take care of cry their eyes out and run to hide when Boobah comes on the screen ahahaha I myself can not understand why they would have such characters on television.

    Really? I actually love this show, which is wrong because I'm about ten years over the age limit to be watching the show. It's so mezmorizing. I'm lost in the colors. And I love the characters, especially Grandpapa!

    I don't think it's really hurting kids', but I don't think educational either. I'm not sure who the producers were trying to target, but I'm attracted to this show. Go figure.

    What is with you people saying bad things about comepletly innocent shows? I don't think they are being hynotized. Oh no! In Sopranos, they TALK! OH NO! SUBLINAL MESSAGES OF HYPNOTIZATION! Go say something like that.
