Trivia[edit]

I've added a trivia tag to the article as the list has been re-added. If the items cannot be rewritten into the main text I will remove them again later. Carl Sixsmith (talk) 05:17, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
Edited and grammatically 'cleaned up' the article. Still lacks references... Ryanlauph (talk) 11:31, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

"British animated pre-school children's show"[edit]

I'm at a loss to figure out what is nonsensical about the foregoing phrase, as suggested in this edit summary - the program is an animated series, produced in Britain, for children of pre-school age. That is a more precise, and helpful, description than "British animated television series", and unless it is incorrect (i.e. the target audience is not pre-school children), then it should stand.

Spin off or crossover?[edit]

My first exposure to this series was in an episode of peppa pig where they are making up a bed time story and had all the characters of little kingdom. I always assumed this show was a spin off from that peppa pig episode, or was it simply a cross over? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.147.96.46 (talk) 04:58, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Cleanup needed[edit]

This article is a mess, written by someone whose native language is not English. Serious tidying up needed.109.255.138.92 (talk) 18:46, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your suggestion. When you believe an article needs improvement, please feel free to make those changes. Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone can edit almost any article by simply following the edit this page link at the top.
The Wikipedia community encourages you to be bold in updating pages. Don't worry too much about making honest mistakes—they're likely to be found and corrected quickly. If you're not sure how editing works, check out how to edit a page, or use the sandbox to try out your editing skills. New contributors are always welcome. You don't even need to log in (although there are many reasons why you might want to). Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:51, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Homage[edit]

The repeatedly-resubmitted Homage section, which this time was removed by Philip Trueman, does not improve our understanding of the series. It is made up entirely of original research and personal interpretation. It's also pretty well established that much of what we watch on TV or on film contains tributes and hat-tips to other jokes, iconic camera shots, puns on book titles, etc. (Fun fact! Did you know that the movie title Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is an "homage" to the popular weather report phrase "Cloudy with a chance of sunshine"?) It's not Wikipedia's place to note every instance of that stuff, (see WP:TRIVIA,) and it is especially not our place to do so without using reliable published sources that arrive at these conclusions. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:17, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

I largely agree. I reverted purely on the grounds of unreferenced-ness; while Cyphoidbomb is right that it's "not Wikipedia's place to note every instance of that stuff", I can imagine instances where properly sourced descriptions of what has inspired what are worthy of inclusion. To answer Cyphoidbomb's example, WP is read and relied on by people for whom English is not their first language and whose cultural background, and even experience of the weather, is far from that of North America and Western Europe. An Indian whose experience of the seasons is 'wet, dry and monsoon' may well be interested to learn about the inspiration of that movie title. I wouldn't call it trivia. But any such description needs to be properly referenced. Philip Trueman (talk) 10:01, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Most of the references are self-evident, but we do have one good source for the similarity between the Fairy Mayor and Boris Johnson. Nick Cooper (talk) 11:51, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, added character/similarity (and source) to article. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:15, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Episodes of the Future[edit]

This is where we can discuss Ben and Holly episode ideas for future Ben and Holly episodes.Neverlander223 (talk) 16:29, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

No, this is not where you can discuss that. Article talk pages are for discussing ways to improve the article. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:06, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
