I suppose there probably is a market for religious cartoons but I will bet a cool million those cartoons are dreadful. Kids don't want to watch cartoons where you learn some naff pious message. They want to giggle at something naughty. Don't we all?

It dawned on me, quite early into my Peppa Pig watching days (I'm heading into my fourth year now), that everything is really quite lovely in the small town where Peppa and her family live.

A week ago, a columnist of the Daily Mail was telling her readers why she had suddenly decided to ban the four-time Bafta-winning cartoon Peppa Pig from her home. Is Britain's top-selling pre-school character as dangerous and evil as the journalist claims it is?

When the screening started, our three children were so excited, they were flung into the first episode on a tidal wave of expectation. And they weren't disappointed. The show has everything a kid could want; action, intrigue, laughs, robots, magic and ninjas. And, of course, Lego.

This may sound a little harsh, but if I have to endure any more of the tinkle tinkle sounds, bright colours and annoying voices of children's TV screeching through my consciousness I am going to lose my bloody mind!

Yonderland and Puppetry

So what was Yonderland like? Challenging, exhausting, but most of all, fun. Film making is not a quick process, the hours are long and there is an awful lot of time in between bouts of filming whilst the camera crew, lighting, sound, props, set dressers, puppet team and most importantly director finalise a shot.

Enter The Eggheads: Taking On The World's Best TV Quizzers

Paddy Duffy

Getting up in the early a.m. to make a seven hour round trip to answer 240 written general knowledge questions may be considered an unorthodox way to spend a bank holiday weekend, but then again: 1) So is looking at an elderly couple looking at boats and 2) My lifelong love of quizzes has never really been in the same orbit as orthodox anyway.

Me, Benny Hill and the Milkman

Trevor Neal

Appearing on children's TV meant I had to control my urge to swear if I wanted to keep my job. After so many years the habit's kind of stuck. In the Shawshank Redemption Morgan Freeman continues to ask permission to go to the toilet even when he's freed from prison. That's a bit like me. I ask permission. Then I go to the toilet and swear like a f**king trooper.
