I grew up on Sesame Street, Barney, The Magic School Bus, Zoom, Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman, Teletubbies, and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
My experience with BTL is somewhat similar. I used to like it as a kid, there were certain skits I enjoyed at least. But for the most part, the majority of the show kind of creeped me out back then. Arty Smartypants, Heath the Thesaurus, Sam Spud, Click the Mouse, The Announcer Bunny, The Vowelles, and even the lion puppets themselves were a bit scary to me at the time (especially the mother lion for some reason, the other ones weren't nearly as off putting). The only two things I really enjoyed on BTL were the cartoons and the monkeys. The two pigeons weren't all that bad either, I remember laughing at some of their skits from time to time as well.What a coincidence. That’s pretty much a summary of my experience with BTL too.
I think it's because of a lot of the jokes on the show were geared more towards parents. I remember both my mom and dad absolutely loving the show, even more than I did when I was little. Now that I'm older I understand the humor a lot more and can appreciate it for the clever writing.Wow. Guess I’m not the only one who loved the show more as they grew older. Never knew I had company.
