Josh, Anna, M-Squad Pt 13: Awaiting M5


Recommended Posts

Chocolatedefrauded

OMG Caillou made my husband talk about poking his eyes out with a pencil! After just ONE episode too. He said it was deeply disturbing. The no plot thing drove me insane along with the narrators inflections & slow speech. And the episodes - Caillou takes a bus ride! We banned the show after about 3 episodes.

I just watched a bit of that paparazzi video of them disembarking the plane. I was so struck by the way that precisely ZERO people in that family turned around to help Anna off the plane, or even glan

All this talk of the Wiggles sent me looking through my old photo albums.  This little girl bopping away to the Wiggles is turning 21 in October!

Every day, it becomes more and more clear that the Duggars use Anna as a pawn. First, she was the thing that would heal Josh and make him better. Then she was Josh's walking womb. Then

They're apparently still around.

The Wiggles are still around! Though only one of the original ones (The Blue wiggle) is in the band. The others retired for various reasons. The original yellow wiggle retired due to illness and a new guy took over, who retired with the other two a few years ago.

The current yellow wiggle (a lady) and the red wiggle recently got married.

The Wiggles are still pretty big here in Australia. They're quite well respected for their contribution to children's music/entertainment.

My mum always likes to bring up that she went to see them before they were children's entertainers in a band called the Cockroaches. I think the actual Wiggles band formed when they met at University doing a childhood education degree (The University I attend!)

Oh my! I have been hearing about the video of Josh and Anna getting off the plane in Rockford. I finally saw it. Not only did Josh not help Anna at all, he never even turned around to see if she got off the plane OK.  And the way he acted when she hugged him (just ignoring her and drinking from his bottle).  

I just can't...

Sorry to jump into the thread a little late, but OMG the Wiggles! Sons 1& 2 both watched the dvd's endlessly, I still can't look at a bowl of fruit salad without hearing that damn song in my head!  

Please, Dear Rufus, let Anna have M5 soon, so @Carm_88 doesn't have to keep up with the never ending name/date pool! (Thanks by the way to @Carm_88 for continuously updating the list, it's fun to see the guesses!)

Here in Portugal Caillou is called "Ruca"... Remember when i was younger used to love it now my nephew likes to watch and I only think"Why did I like this little brat??" 

For the name of M5 I would say Mathias Robert born on sep. 1...

Nothing or No one is as annoying as that little rat bastard, Caillou.

I've never seen that show, but based off of how much posters here have expressed their hatred for them I've found myself feeling the same way. I'm sure I'd hate him more if I was ever subjected to the show.

May Joshly be locked in a barren room, with only an uncomfortable chair to sit in, and Calliou playing endlessly on a solitary crappy television.

I would watch this show sometimes when babysitting my niece or nephew. I commented to my sister that I hated that whiny little Caillou and she told me that the background is that Caillou is a child with cancer (hence the bald head) and it is because he is so sick that his parents tolerate his whining and that is why they do so little activities. I don't know if this is just an urban myth but now I always feel a bit bad about hating on Caillou. :my_cry:

I just can't...

I'm generally not inclined to make excuses for Josh, but his family is prone to motion sickness and he may have been fighting nausea.  That might, AFAIC, explain why he didn't hug Anna back.  I see no excuse for him, or somebody, helping Anna off the plane.

@browngrl Lol that is an urban legend. Caillou does not have cancer. I looked it up once because it bugged me that he is bald even though everyone else, including his baby sister, has a full head of hair (It also annoys me that Daniel Tiger doesn't wear pants, but I digress). So feel free to hate on him without guilt!

(And in case anyone is curious, the reason he is bald is because the show is based off a book, and in the book Caillou is a baby. Even though they aged him up, they decided to keep him bald so the character would still be recognizable.)

Their is a character on Cbeebies in UK called Mr Tumble that irritates the life out of me, he does one show with kids with special needs which, I do appreciate but I can't help hating Mr Tumble. Luckily my nephew's and niece felt the same.

I also can't stand the little brat that is peppa pig and naughty Norman from Fireman Sam.

I nearly downvoted the posters who trashed the Wiggles.  Many happy memories here of my daughter enjoying their concerts and videos (pre DVD days).  Thankyou @Kangaroo for defending them!  

And yes, they were formed as the result of a college (I don't think it was a uni at that time) assignment.  My friend was in the year below them doing the same course.

Except maybe Barney. Barney was banned in our house.
 


The only good thing that came from Barney was the clean up song

Mr Tumble creeps me out big time! If I encountered him in real life, I would be not so subtle ushering my kids away from him.

I honestly don't know how it happened that Anna has been active on Instagram again and I didn't know? Must have slipped my attention completely that she started a new account. I was always checking her old account... 

 

ETA: I must have been sleepwalking , what I wrote is not correct. I accidentally thought her twitter page was a new instagram account... Nevermind and sorry for the confusion!

I watch the new version of To Tell the Truth. The guy who dressed up in the Barney suit was a contestant. He did the movements someone else did the voice.

Oh, no. This is not going to be a good day for me.

My 18 year old discovered the Wiggles at the end of a Barney tape when she was 14 months old.   They "tossed in" Fruit Salad at the end.  I must have rewound the last three minutes of that tape hundreds of times. She'd just point to the remote and I knew what I was being told to do.  Then I had to buy all of their VHS tapes.  Heady times.

I'd have entire nights where I couldn't get some of those songs out of my head.  Fruit Salad and some song called "Do The Monkey" being the biggest culprits.

"Fruit Salad, yummy, yummy"  I'm headed down the nightmare earworm train of The Wiggles. However, I offer the Veggie Tales nightmare in return.

I am a survivor of Barney (live show anyone?), creepy Teletubbies,  and those damn Wiggles. Give me Thomas the train any day or books, nice quiet books.

Nowadays my preschool students love Pete the Cat. Look it up and you're welcome in advance for having that sneaker song taking up precious brain/memory space.

And we are updated! :) 

As for children's shows, my personal favourites were Sesame Street, Mr. Dressup, and Fred Penner. Yep, I'm Canadian! :P My brother watched a shit load of Calliou and I agreed, he's the devil in disguise. My father apparently can't hear Jolly Old St. Nicholas anymore without wanting to cry because my brother watched Barney's Christmas so many times.

I like most PBS Kids shows well enough. My daughter's favorites are Sesame Street, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, and Super Why. They have a new show called Splash and Bubbles that she also likes. I'm partial to Arthur myself, brings me back to my childhood! We don't do Disney Channel or Nickelodeon.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
