The 15 most annoying kids' TV shows

We love that they keep the kids quiet, but god do these TV shows get on our nerves...

A few minutes peace and quiet, that's all we want. The TV goes on, their little faces become transfixed and you can breathe a sigh of relief.

But if you think you're in for a relaxing time, think again. When did kids' TV shows get so darn annoying?

If you've found yourself gritting your teeth as your precious little ones demand another viewing of their favourite show, this is for you.

We've rounded up what we think are the most annoying kids' TV shows on at the moment - do you agree? Or have we missed out any that really get on your nerves? Tell us below!

Mister Maker

Hey, we love craft (we've got a whole section on it (opens in new tab)) so a show based around getting the kids to do more craft should be right up our street. But why did they have to make Mister Maker so annoying? Calm down, man!

Bing the bunny

We're just not even sure what's going on most the time...

Nina and the neurons

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mhEoLsPZ2E

Educational, great, mind-numbingly annoying, not so great - WHY CAN'T SHE JUST STAY STILL?

Peppa Pig

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CVg9rrFI7M

A controversial one, sure, but while the little ones love this innocent-looking pig, have you ever noticed how rude Peppa can be? This classic episode (above) sees her pointing out, very handily, that her dad is fat. Nice Peppa, nice.

Me too

Me too, me too, me too - ahhhhhhhhhh

Fireman Sam

Okay maybe not the whole show (although it's nowhere near as good as it used to be) but how blimming irritating is Norman? How can he get into that much trouble? Really.

Balamory

Is it just us or is Balamory just a very, very odd place? We get confused just watching.

In The Night Garden

Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka - even the names are annoying! Who the hell came up with this show?

Yo Gabba Gabba

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnSD0kV_mms

What even ARE they?

Justin’s house

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rvQTFIXo-8

Justin is surely the single most annoying man to ever exist. Sure, give him his own TV show and play it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Waybuloo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPSBpQm5j6c

Why won't they speak normally?

The Bubble Guppies

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTJyPwzPitM

We DEFY you not to get the theme tune in your head ALL DAY LONG. Sure, we don't look like lunatics singing this under our breath round the supermarket...

Max and Ruby

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kMB-yEz5V8

So, so boring - and is it just us or is Ruby a little bit of a meany?

Cartoonito karaoke

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbjjlEq9VUc

Please, teach them the exact words to all the most irritating songs in the world so they can torment us with them all day.

Pokoyo

WHY WON'T YOU SPEAK?

And don't even get us started about baby TV...
