Sometimes I'm the one who needs a time out

WTH is am I watching?… a mommy moment.

Canimalscanimals (1) I would like to think I’m not the only parent that uses the TV as a babysitter when I’m cooking dinner. Usually I let my sweet boy pick out something on netflix. Usually he picks out Thomas Tank Engine, Little Einsteins or the intolerable Yo Gabba Gabba.

Last night I guess he was feeling adventurous because he picked out this show called Canimals. The little Netflix icon showed these big eyed boxy looking critters. However I had zero idea what it was, it looked kid friendly so I clicked that bad boy and went into the kitchen to make my pork loin and carrots.

After a few minutes of silence I went out to check on little man and was quickly drawn in by the creepiness  of Canimals.

Its animation in a live action show. So there was a real little kid sleeping and then there are these little animals or toys (I really don’t know what in the hell they are) and they pop out of these tuna type cans. The animals roam around, make a mess and find interest in random things.

According to Wicapedia the shows plot is described as ” Canimals follows a group of little tin can-like elflike animals that go around rediscovering the world from a different point of view. The Canimals find something new and worthy of attention in the most mundane of things”  A much nicer way to describe it than I have. 3cc2434b68db83ed9a8fb19d27ff65e8

The episode that I found most odd was called “Toki In Love” Where the Bunny Canimal
falls in love with a sexy rabbit on a can of carrots. The dog (or bunny?) cannimal gets psycho jealous of the can of carrots and does everything he can to stop this love affair.

There was no talking among the canimals just weird little grunts, hums and yips. This is seriously one of the oddest shows I have seen yet to date. I feel like there should be some F****** Up Mommy Award for this show. For your viewing pleasure I found the episode online so you know that I’m not completely crazy and I can share the wonderful weirdness with you 🙂 (You are welcome) What is the most weird show you have ran across with your little one? What shows do you hate more than anything?.. this may have one up on Yo Gabba Gabba for me.
