My Bedbugs children’s tv show

in bed bugs and children, fun

The award-winning Children’s show “My Bedbugs” now has a 100 million viewers in the US, according to a press release [dead link to press release now removed].

As more and more of those kids get bitten by real bed bugs, I bet the producers and merchandisers are wishing they picked another “cute” name for their cuddly trio.

Before I get more angry comments about “My Bedbugs” and how nice and innocent they are, can I remind you people that one of their best friends is a vacuum named J. Egdar Hoover? He says, on mybedbugs.com [note the website was taken down after this post was published and links have since been removed]:

J Edgar Hoover from My Bedbugs

(Screenshot of character page from mybedbugs.com — site no longer active as of September 2009.)

Yeah, I don’t know about cleaning being fun, but a lot of Bedbuggers also use their Hoover or other vacuum cleaner to “teach their bed bugs a lesson every day.”

Only our bed bugs are not so lucky to see the next day, as it appears these happy-go-lucky bedbugs are.

Perhaps the humans in this scenario forgot to seal and dispose of those vacuum cleaner bags? Or perhaps J. Edgar is working on his own and has no arms or hands (or feet, or prosthetic limbs) to remove the bags. In that case, J. Edgar needs to seek out friends or relatives to help him beat his bed bug infestation.

Seal and dispose of those vacuum bags after use. Or “Your Bedbugs” will be back the next day and the next, like those in the TV show. (See? A helpful hint. And you thought this was just another frivolous bit of fun.)

Update (2013): the show’s website (and the press release which prompted this post) are now defunct — the pages linked to in this blog post were gone by September 2009. I added a screenshot above obtained via the Wayback Machine. You can find out something about My Bedbugs from the production company’s website: . If you find this show rather intriguing, as I do, you might enjoy looking at the promo material (PDF) which explains the concept, has photos of characters, etc.

I hate the very idea of this show. I know it’s irrational, but I just hate it!

I loved J. Edgar it’s not often we see him these days without a dress.
I found the site humorous I understand some folks emotions or admitted
irrational responses but ya gotta lighten up sometimes.
Yes many things must be done but ya have to see the waves from the ocean.
And don’t send me nasty notes because I’ve been dealing with a plethora of
pests for years but still find them fascinating and possible proof of a higher
order.

The owners are crooks. How can they possibly teach our children what’s right and wrong when they themselves are the lowest life forms?

This sounds like a disgruntled employee!!

Hello. That probably was an employee. I was one and agree. There are 50 more of us who agree and even more investors. Only the owners and their family members benefited from the hard work put in by all. Nuff said.

This thread took an unexpected turn.

I love the bedbuggers teaching their bugs a lesson line.

Classic

Thanks, bugbattler 😉

Yes, the thread did take an odd turn.
