If David Lynch made kids' TV...

Ever since I watched Twin Peaks (which was only like six years ago) I love David Lynch' stuff. Whenever we go to a small town in the forest we have breakfast in a diner in the hopes of seeing an awkward lady with a log under her arm. Now there's also David Lynch for kids in the form of Bumba, a Belgian-made TV show for kids (also available in English). BlueEyes loves it (although he loves any type of moving image; we don't have a TV at home, but when we go to a restaurant he can be hypnotized by TV). 
Check it out for yourself, but especially the children dressed up as clowns clapping in an otherwise empty room make it feel very David Lynch to me.

  1. Bumba and Bumbaloo are disturbing as hell. What are they trying to teach these children, that it's OK to not fear clowns and tigers? Terrible. Just terrible.
    ALSO, tamatos ARE YELLOW SOMETIMES! They aren't even teaching about vegetables (fruits) properly.
