I'm pretty sure most parents looked at that and knew I was talking about Wonderpets. A show about a duckling, a guinea pig and a turtle that rescue other animals.
And then it occurred to me, Ming-Ming. The damned duck has an annoying speech impedement. Now, having had a speech problem as a child I don't go around thinking people with speech problems are annoying. I do find it really annoying when people do it on children's shows just to make the character sound cute. Every episode she (I think it's a she) says "this is sewious, there's an animal in twouble".
I've been told I'm not alone and Ben also can't stand the super annoying and fake lisp. But Garrett loves it, he smiles when it comes on so I guess I'll just have to resort to pretending it's Ming-Ming in my Chinese food.
