Bing on Cbeebies. A Few Questions.

What is the deal with Pando’s trousers? - On Cbeebies Bing

Our Little One was very very much into watching Bing on Cbeebies, and because of the series record feature on our YouView… she discovered the joys of binge watching Bing.

Obviously this means I have also discovered the joys of watching Bing (and learning how to make the most use of its 7 minute run time). While watching the same episode for what felt like the 20th time, my wife and I started to ask ourselves a few questions, and generally over think about Bing and some of his friends:

What is the deal with Pando’s trousers? - On Cbeebies Bing

What is the deal with Pando’s trousers?

Whenever you see him in the TV show, the guy is running around in his underwear, except for one moment at the very start when he takes his trousers off. Why doesn’t his carer type character put his trousers back on?

I guess yellow doesn’t look great on him.

On the subject of the carer type characters…

What is Flop on Cbeebies Bing?

What the actual heck is Flop?

The Cbeebies website describe Flop as Bings carer, but where is his parents?

Flop is there when Bing goes to bed, when he wakes up, Bing looks after Flop when he’s ill. If it was just Flop and Bing, I’d suggest that Bing actually had a heart breaking back story, but other characters seem to have similar carer figures. Maybe all the parents have disappeared? Maybe the carers are aliens?

Again, on the subject of the carers…

How do they get Charlie up these stairs?

Bake with Bing (in the Bing Baking app anyway)

This is not a drill. There is a new Bing App for your phone!

This isn’t a Bing app which you will not want to use for web searches, but may be useful to bargain with for another few minutes in Bed.

If your Little One is a fan of Bing Bunny on CBeebies, bare this in mind.

I’ve not had the chance to try the Little One out on this yet, but as she is a Dan of “Bing and Flop”, I’m expecting a positive welcome to less space being available on my phone for photos.
