Scooby Doo rated as ‘most active’ children’s TV programme

According to research published by the Department of Health (click here) Scooby Doo has been ranked as the most active children’s TV programme, ahead of Shaun the Sheep, Lazy Town, Peppa Pig, Bob the Builder and Tom and Jerry.

PCP Research Consultants analysed the top 20 children’s programmes and characters shown on UK TV channels in November and December 2010. Each character was rated on their activity levels and received marks for good behaviours such as walking short journeys and playing sport. Whilst Scooby Doo came out as the most active programme overall, the most active individual character was Sportacus in Lazy Town, followed by Scooby Doo himself.

Based on the research, the Department of Health’s ‘Change4Life’ initiative is teaming up with super hero Sportacus from Lazy Town to inspire children around the country to ditch their junk food and tuck into more ‘Sports Candy’ (i.e. fruit and vegetables!).

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
