Having a small child can subject you to the most excruciatingly painful television programs. The patience of a saint is needed to put up with some of the trippy shows out there.

The one surprise though is Pocoyo. A 'claymation' type production that really is pleasant to the eye as well as the nerves. The design of the show is very simple with bright colored characters and a starck white backdrop with the occasional prop that looks like Karim Rashid had a part in.

What's even better is that each episode clocks in under 5 minutes which quite honestly, leaves you wanting more.
