The 5 Most Annoying Cartoon Characters
Sometimes I can be too serious. Looking back at some recent posts, I realized I need to add some more lighthearted fare. So here it is: The 5 Most Annoying Cartoon Characters.
The setup: This is not all inclusive. It is a list of the 5 characters I despise the most based on what shows my son currently watches (or has seen, even briefly).
5. Sir Topham Hatt, Thomas & Friends
Thomas almost made the list for being a bit on the whiny side of things, but I just couldn’t do it, so I had to add ol’ Topham. He makes the list for two reasons: 1. He seems like a generally disagreeable person and 2. “you are causing confusion and delay”. Nowhere near as annoying as the rest of this list, but still deserved a spot.
4. Chuck, The Adventures of Chuck and Friends
Chuck is not an annoyance on every episode, but there are times when he tops the charts. My issue? Everything is about him. EVERYTHING. If it isn’t about him, then he is whining about someone else being in the spotlight.
3. Caillou, Caillou
We have never watched a full episode. Why? This kid is creepy.
2. Clarabelle Cow, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
As far as I am concerned, Goofy is married and has a child. Now, he suddenly has an annoying girlfriend with a voice that makes me want to curl up in the corner and cry. C’mon Goofy, you can do better.
1. Norman, Fireman Sam
From the voice to his actions, this kid is the most annoying character on TV. He nearly gets himself and the entire town killed on a weekly basis and whines like there is no tomorrow. So far, I have found no redeeming qualities in this soulless lump of death.

Sharing is always good! TweetPhysical Video game sales were at $13 billion in 2012 – down from $17 billion in 2011 (Forbes.com), but a large piece of business nonetheless. And I’m not surprised. Everywhere I look — from the local paper to the national news, reports of violence are everywhere. Murder trial after murder trial…

Sharing is always good! TweetI read this story about Isabella Dutton last week when it was initially published and wanted to pass on making any comment since I knew she had created a self inflicted firestorm that was totally in her right to do so. Let’s be clear: I don’t fault Ms. Dutton for her…

Sharing is always good! TweetI love to read and one thing I hope is that my son also finds joy in reading. If he doesn’t, so be it, but seeing as though he is only going to be 4 next month, he will be getting at the very least one or more night time stories…

Sharing is always good! TweetThis is not a post arguing for or against gun control, but it is about gun control. Yes, there is a difference. It is important to level set. The current gun control debate is not about making our nation safer or about protecting our children — it is simply about gun…

Sharing is always good! TweetSome time ago, my wife watched me down a glass of water after dinner and told me I was odd. Me being odd was no surprise to me, but why now? She highlighted the fact that I don’t drink anything while eating but will immediately drink something once I am done.…

Sharing is always good! TweetOur son just turned 3 1/2 and I dread making the decision for his schooling. Some might chuckle, thinking I have already missed the boat considering waiting lists these days for revered educational institutions. Both my wife and I are college graduates (that’s how we met) but she came through 12…

Sharing is always good! TweetI was pondering how the terrible twos are a myth and it is really the terrible threes, when I read the article Study suggests tie between BPA and child obesity on Philly.com (but from the AP). In a world of article scanners (as opposed to reading), I am concerned that the…

Sharing is always good! TweetI don’t subscribe to the notion of haves and have-nots. I don’t fault the abundantly successful. But some days I do feel like a lemming (even though it is a bit of a misconception). As workers, we live in a self correcting eco-system. Layer after layer of management keep the layer…

Sharing is always good!

Sharing is always good! TweetIf you read my posts with any regularity, you quickly realize a lot of my thoughts jump from a point already started. This will be no different. I came across “The ‘Busy’ Trap” by Tim Kreider in the New York Times and on reading the title, figured it was another article…
