TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (FTN) – A local dad is trying push his childhood favorite shows on his toddler, so far, without much success.
On Monday, 36-year-old Chris Essex stopped an episode of one of three-year-old Alex’s favorites, as Youtuber named Blippi, to show him Rugrats.
Chris said he didn’t have much success.
“It was the episode where Tommy got a boo-boo and became scared to do anything…when he cut his finger saving the baby bird,” Chris said.
He said Alex was into it for a couple of minutes, but quickly became bored.
“I had this plan when he was little, to only let him watch shows from MY childhood, because I could actually enjoy them too. But have you rewatched Rocko’s Modern Life? There’s a thing with him being a phone sex operator,” Chris said.
Chris admits the adventures of Tommy, Chucky, Phil, and Lil might have to wait a little longer, but he told us he would not give up.
“Rugrats is a great show, but I just don’t think he was ready. It’s very complex…I am not giving up, he will get there. I will say the SD ruining my eyes for the rest of the day…maybe that was it,” Chris said,
