YMMV / Wee Sing

Go To

  • Adaptation Displacement: The original song books and music albums are much less well remembered than the videos.
  • Accidental Nightmare Fuel: So much of it coming from the Uncanny Valley visuals and acid-trip nature of many of the videos.
  • Anvilicious: Each video always teaches a lesson, or two, or three, or twelve...
  • Awesome Music: This introduced most young adults to some beloved childhood songs. Seriously, take your pick.

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The scene in Wee Sing in Sillyville where the acorn sings "I'm a Nut".
  • Broken Base: From an adult perspective, the whole series is seen as charming by some, as unbearably cheesy and sugary by others. But even among fans, Wee Sing in Sillyville seems to have the most broken base, with many loving it and considering it the pinnacle of the series, while others find the thinly veiled message about race relations to be gratingly Anvilicious.
  • Narm Charm: This is how adults who look back fondly on the series usually feel about it.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • Peter in Grandpa's Magical Toys is played by Kevin Hageman, one half of the Hageman brothers, who have worked on films like Hotel Transylvania, The LEGO Movie, and the Netflix series Trollhunters.
    • Andrew Goodman, who played Carter in Wee Sing Train, currently works on Spongebob Squarepants as a writer.

    • Vana O'Brien, who was Aunty Annabella in Marvelous Musical Mansion, is not only the co-founder of the Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland, but she's also been in a few Gus Van Sant films like My Own Private Idaho and Elephant. She's also the daughter of Hollywood actor Van Heflin.
    • The Tiddlebirds from Wee Sing in Sillyville gained a surprise leap in popularity courtesy of being a recurring element in the livestreams of Holly, one of the members in the Radio TV Solutions crew.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Critics who don't like the series usually accuse it of this. Big Rock Candy Mountains is probably the worst offender, fittingly enough.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: The crooked man in King Cole's Party could have been the mentor to the kids, but he was only used in one portion of the movie.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The plot of Wee Singdom. Made to serve as the Grand Finale to the series, it involved characters from the previous videos meeting up and singing songs together. The problem is not every video gets its own representative. There are no characters from Wee Sing Together, King Cole's Party, The Best Christmas Ever or The Marvelous Musical Mansion, though their game piece likenesses are there. Also, Little Bunny Foo Foo and Sillywhim are the only characters that retain their original actors. Then there's the fact that The Big Rock Candy Mountains and Wee Sing Train have three characters each instead of one like everyone else (three if you count Chugalong and Cubby as separate entities).

    • Also, Annie and Tim could have gone to the festival when it first started, but they’re only there for the grand finale.
