Baman Piderman: Ever Heard of It?

I have to ask, people. Is anyone else’s kids addicted to Baman Piderman? Because mine definitely are. TRC came across them through his Nintendo 3DS video channel, and he and DC watch all the new episodes religiously. For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s a web video series of badly drawn Batman and Spiderman characters who act very . . . floppy. And fairly stupid. Here’s the first episode.

I try to be a pretty “with it” dad, but this is one where I just haven’t been able to muster the same level of adoration that my kids have for something. They always love to show me the latest episodes, and I humor them, but I can’t help feeling like I’d rather be doing pretty much anything than watch them. They’re amusing enough, but . . .

And yet, I find myself quoting them, mainly because my kids quote them all the time. Especially from this episode. The line “Tanks, Pumpkin!”

So there’s the question: is this a nationwide thing, or are my kids just . . . unique in their tastes?
