  • I Need You and EVERY LAST PBS KIDS Show out of my Life after December 31, 2016!

    I heard my sister Kendall singing I Love You from Barney and it SUCKED!!!!!
  • MY EYES!!!!

    Abomination! This show could possibly be one of the worst TV Shows from PBS Kids ever! I don't know what these color thingies are (s**tty c**p, no, thank you noise!), but this show is getting thrown in the trash. Die!!!! Curse you, Ragdoll! It could have had only better humans and no color thingies in it and it would be infinity better than it is in reality!!!!!!! This show makes Caillou, Barney, Dora, and Teletubbies the best shows ever, but they're really not! If you want to be smart, don't be rhetoric and repetitive! Never watch this. O U T spells out!!!!

  • What, Why?

    Boohbah is an "Exercise" show for infants. It it made by Ragdoll, the company behind the Teletubbies. It features 5 aliens who do these Exercises. WHAT ARE THEY? all these aliens do is just spin around and do nothing at all, they also make fart noises and do not get me started on the high pitched noise they make most of the time. the live action story world is actually funny and good, but sadly, it still makes the show gain one of my lowest ratings, a 2. It might even get my lowest rating, but since there is good in it, That why it does not get a 1.
  • Too weird

    This show Boohbah is like one of the most weirdest shows I had ever watched in my entire life. Sure it teaches some stuff on TV but I can't really remember some stuff about it cause I watched this when I was a kid. They even, but they make annoying sounds and farting noises. All of those stupid 5 aliens are completely ***ed and make weird moves.
  • Well I'm conflicted...

    This show isn't bad but it's just really laughable.

    I mean I used to hate this show but after I read a review on imdb(copy and pasted here):

    "Buddy-Rey obviously has not taken any child development courses in their life, otherwise they would know that this show is aimed towards infants to pre-school children, and you can't teach too much too early.

    All the colors and sounds are actually fundamental for a child's stimulates certain parts of the brain that must be developed areas that are reserved for reading, spelling, and counting haven't necessarily been activated yet, nor should they be. Buddy-Rey seems to be asking children to walk before they can crawl. When I first watched in my senior year of college mind you, I was of course freaked out. But that is because my brain was much more developed than an brains can already process information to let us know what we are looking at, and make meaning of it. Yes, there isn't any sophisticated meaning behind this show, but it isn't teaching Shakespeare. Try to think like a baby, and you'll soon realize that it is actually an interesting show. If there are parents out there looking for a show for their newborns, try this one out. To us it may be disturbing and seem like a waste of time, but your children will prove it otherwise. Don't rush your kids too quickly into learning arithmetic and reading epic literature or it will in fact stunt their growth on more important levels if taught too early. If parents are worried about their impressionable children being shown "multi-colored phallic symbols", please remember that they have no clue whatsoever what a phallic symbol is, and will not be able to take this show to an inappropriate level. It is an innocent show filled with a vibrancy that our lives nowadays seems to lack"

    It doesn't mean if a show forced you to crack your skull,annoy you or question you isn't necessarily a bad mean good for infants but bad for adults.

    But I'm not going to hope for this show to re air soon o_O
  • What a strange show.

    my 3rd review after Button Moon.

    This is one of the most weirdest and strangest shows i have ever seen. The show is about 5 alien things called Humbah (yellow), Zumbah (purple), Zing Zing Zingbah (orange), Jumbah (Blue) and Jingbah (pink). They make farting sounds and high pitched sound effects which are so bad that they are funny. Looking at the Things themselves, They are creepy. They do "Exercises" which is just them knocking over each other and doing nothing. Now come the other segment, The Story People. This follows Grandmama, Grandpapa, Miss Lady, Mr. Man, Brother and sister, Auntie and Little Dog Fido doing stuff with the item they got. then it goes back to the Boohbahs doing nothing again, In the american Version, there is another Segment, Called Look at what i can do. This shows children doing their own moves. After that The Boohbahs Go back into the Boohball, and the boohball flys off, never to be seen again.


    Graphics 5/10 (Simular to the Teletubbies, without the landscape)

    Voice Acting 0/10 (the characters don't Talk, just stupid sound effects)

    Music 6/10 (Nice Music)

    Anything Bad 100/10 (So Boring and bad)

    Overall, I give it an 2/10 with the title of Horrible!
  • What is this?

    I never watched this show when I was little, but since I watched Teletubbies when I was little and still do because they bring back good memories, I checked out this show on Youtube. Can someone tell me how this show is educational?! All these Boo-Bahs do is dance around and do a bunch of childish, random nonsense and they make a lot of farting noises. They annoy the hell out of me with that high pitched noise they make.

    What kind of name is Boohah? It seems like this show tries to be cute and educational but it just fails to epic proportions. And believe me, I usually give shows 3 chances to see if they'll be good or bad, but after seeing Boohbah, there's something that made me not want to see it again. The Boohahs are weird and terribly annoying, there's too much colors, high pitched noises and stupid songs and dancing, like, nothing makes sense! The creators must of been smoking a lot of LSD when they made this. Rating: 1/10.
  • My Favorite Thing To Do

    Is spark up a doob and watch some Boobahs! It's outrageously funny, and I think it's educational, too.
  • One of my favorite shows

    This show I watched when I was younger and I still love it now. This show is not that terrible. I love to watch this show whenever I can I'm so smart right now and I used to watch this show and Teletubbies Nothing really wrong with it I wish it was back on television. I don't agree with these parent If you was a kid watching it It was the best show
  • Suddenly, Every Other Baby Kiddie Show Isn't That Terrible

    Dear Parents of young children everywhere,

    When you see this show air on your TV or whatever way you're watching this please change it to anything else (even a show that's not suitable for children is better) This has to be the most mind numbing idiotic thing to ever come out of any network's butt. I'm convinced that PBS was high when they made this show, thank god it's canceled. Heed my warning because if you don't your children shall be doomed to become complete idiots,

  • I cant believe i used to watch this crap

    when I was young i watched this crappy show . ugh it's so is pointless but I'm much much older now and don't even watch PBS. But they should take this show off the air forever.
  • No comment

    No comment but a Note to Spongeyfan:How did you give a 4.4 rating when it has to be 4.5 ?
  • These things are scary looking!

    Whoever thought of this, I really do not know what they were thinking. Seriously, why would any kid want to watch this. It seems like they would have nightmares about it. They really are scary looking. I don't get this show. Is there any educational value for this show. All I see is a bunch of colorful monsters making weird noises and just bouncing, or moving or whatever it is they are doing. They don't even talk. Other kid shows have educational value, this has nothing. They could have at least made the charaters cute or something, but no they use freakish aliens.
  • I'll give them a lesson.

    Okay aliens, start moving your legs when this music plays.... *Angel of Death by Slayer plays* Keep going!

    Plot: It's about five aliens who teach kids everyday with those "exercises". What the hell are those? Those aren't even exercises. The one who made this is the one who made Teletubbies, another crap show.

    Characters: Really stupid and dimwitted. Why are these characters act so very dumb? And this is a child's show? Uagh.

    Value: Read above. With those traits, instead of giving education, you will turn all of the children's IQ to a pile of dust.

    Overall: -1.2. *plays Criminally Insane* Hey! Don't stop until you finish all of the songs in this album!
  • Oh my god.

  • This show sucks!

    Boohbah is a piece of crap just like the Teletubbies it's about these stupid things who can't even talk the theme song is extremely annoying. This show is also alot like Teletubbies it also teaches little kiddies how to be gay and stuff and it is mega crap plus it is from the same creator as the Teletubbies(Anne Wood) i am so glad this show is cancelled. Anne Wood do us a favour and let us have piece from your gay shows please?
  • stupid!!!!!

    how is this show educational!?!?!? it's about 5 alien blob thingys that do nothing for 30 minutes! this show should've never existed. who thought of this show?! he/she was obviously on drugs if he/she created this show. boobah(the name's retarded BTW) makes Barney look like a god! i'm really happy that this show has ended. what was PBS thinkin when they greenlit boobah?? avoid this show at all costs! it'll rot your brain cells! keep your kids away from this. boobah, along with teletubbies, is the crappiest show i've ever laid my eyes on!! stupid! stupid! stupid! stupid! stupid! stupid! stupid!
  • From the same people who brought you Teletubbies, comes another disastrous kids show

    As if the Teletubbies wasn't bad enough, the same people who did that show went even lower and created this mess they call, Boohbah. The show is about 5 aliens who try to teach kids to exercise. In reality though, these aliens just run around and do absolutely nothing at all. These "exercises" are all just about those aliens kicking around or flailing their arms around. What kind of exercises are those anyway?! The aliens themselves look really creepy and can most likely give kids nightmares, and they can also make annoying sound effects as well. The only thing this show teaches is kids to annoy their parents to death. Parents, if you have a little kid, do not let them see this show, and if you want them to exercise take them to the YMCA or The Little Gym instead, or just spend time with them.
  • This show stinks.

    My 1 year old sister watches this. Oh my gosh. It's heck on earth when that's on. The little kids on there are so mental! They go, "Jimbo, Barnboh, Boohbee?" What the----?! When it's on, I just wanna take that dang TV and smash it to the ground. Holy crud. You just don't understand the INSANTITY of this show. Anyone agree with me?
  • AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! They kill our minds and bodies!! We\'re doomed! Save us, Family Guy!

    Out of all the damn shows on that damn station PBS, this has to be the worse god damn show even made. What the hell was wrong with these people who made Barney the big fatass lardy abomination and Teletubbcrap? Boohbahwhateverthehellthisshowiscalled is a good example of all this crap you see on tv. Basically, this is an even crazier, crappier version of Teletubbcrap. All these lard-filled pompom balls just run around making noises and bumping into each other. What the hell is that? And not only that, they show real humans do crazy stuff that is simply showing the obvious. \"Where is the ball? Where is the (damn) ball?\" I mean, what the hell is that? And the names of the people are reallly, really stupid. Who would call their grandparents grandpapapapapapa or grandmamamamamamaammamama? And Who the hell is Mr. Man? You see, there should have been a law for this when it had the chance. Die!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Gay.

    Boohbah is a gay kid's show. I mean, are they trying to scare little children? Boohbahs are both unusual and creepy; who watches this stuff?? Also, the Boohbahs have taken over the Walmart. When my friend and I were in there, she had an awesome idea, that she dared me to do. I walked over to the Boohbah rack innocently, as an employee was in the next aisle, stocking up shelves. I pressed all the Boohbahs hands at once, and the employee came over and screamed, "What the crap?!?". I was laughing for minutes straight!!!! xD I now do that every time I go to the Walmart, or any place they sell Boohbahs.
  • what the flip is this??!! huh!! ts Crazzzzzyy!!

    what is it 6 or 5 aleins( like thoses gay tellibubbies) jump up and down making fartting nosies. the kids whoo watch that show will offical become those kids who corrupte the class making fartting nosie. And what the is up the people in the show, there side track the whole show. Damit i hate it. First i thougth it was a new how that everyone would love it , but damn that first episode sucked.IT SUCK wenniers. yup im sticking the middle finger at u too.!!( damn tellitubbies!!).And this website would give me a low score for this show

  • Very pointless

    Me and my Lil' bro were watching this show and it's dvery stupid. It's a total waste of time. Very pointless. Get rid of it! It is just plain dumb. I mean, what does it teach you? Get it outta here. It's no good. It is O U T Out!
  • Wow

    wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow

    i watchet it and it was so wierd
    Its funny and stupid how they make those farting sounds Im not going to watch that no more
    its for todlers or something.
  • This show is the funniest thing on television other then That 70s Show

    Who doesnt like watching Fat Things that walk around! They are freaky as hell, but its still nmad funny! little puff balls are doing crazy stupid things! BOOBAH! BOOBAH! BOOBAH! They have little kids doing rituals for them and it looks like a religion for toddlers!

    I mean, for kids, how do they like this show. When i was 3, i would probobly be freaked out. But im 13, so its HILLARIOUS!!! i can honestlty say my cousin loves this show and hes 3. We started watching it and he knew what it was! I was si so glad!

    Go BOOBAH!
  • Just plain funny.


    This show is just funny. I don't think there is anything wrong with it. I mean, tell me that you have not laughed at least once at Boohbah. Who wouldn't laugh at gaint jelly beans flying around the place and making strange noises? Of course, I see no education value in this show. But there is no reason not to watch it. Every time I watch it I break out in laughter! I think it may be impossible to not let out even a little smile. It may not be very educational, but not all children's shows have to be.

    My name is MoonlightWay, and I approve this review.
  • I used to like it when I was 3 and 4 years old...

    I used to watch this show... Please, don't boo and hiss me. I was younger then!

    Now, I don't hate it and I don't love it. I thinks it okay. I mean some parts are kinda cool, like when they fly and has people falling out of chairs.

    I just, don't know what to say. Please forgive me.

    I really don't like the show, but I like it. You know what I mean, right?

    Sorry for being kind of foolish, it's just that I, I don't know.

    I don't know how to express how I feel about the show, so I'll just say this.

    The show's kind of okay.
  • This show makes Barney & Friends look like a high school lesson.

    Boohbah is one of the most annoying shows ever. One of those reasons is that they make sounds that would be in fart machines and cartoons (with people falling off cliffs). Another reason is that it's got nothing to educational. Shows like Blues Clues, Barney (of course, since it's my review) and Sesame Street have educational value, as all those shows have educational people work on them. The people at Ragdoll don't have anyone like that. My last reason is that you can't understand a thing. I mean sure talking characters can be annoying at times, but non-talking characters who make noise are far more annoying. Because of all these reasons, Boohbah is very irritating and one of the worst shows I've ever seen.
  • What a very crappy show!

    Boohbah is a British excersise show for toddlers. This show was made by the same people who created, among other things, Brum and Teletubbies.

    You read this, huh? It's a terrible show and I bet the toddlers will cry
    "Oh my god! I can't belive there are no more new episodes of Boohbah! Waah!"
    It's good why Boohbah has ended! Now I bet the adults will be having a party why Boohbah has ended! I am very happy why Boohbah has ended! I rate this show a 1.0 (Abysmal) rating! Now I can get those boobs out of my head! More I like to call them "Boobhbah"!
