Which CBeebies Characters Would Help Me Survive The Zombie Apocalypse?

It all started with a random moment the other day when, Martin from Father Lee Moments wondered on The Dad Network Bloggers group, “I’ve often thought who from the world of cbeebies I would like on my team in the case of a zombie apocalypse!”

Now with the shops filled with Halloween monsters, and memories of 28 days later playing over (and over) in my mind, my imagination may have kicked in.

Therefore, here is my look at what CBeebies characters*, I would include in my team during a zombie apocalypse.

(From Sarah and Duck) Back when Sarah and Duck came to our screens, we joined them for a trip to the zoo, which ended with Sarah being surrounded by hungry penguins. Therefore, I would suggest Duck would be a handy companion for anyone surrounded by hungry zombies, he can swoop in, pick you up and fly you to safe ground.

peter-rabbit-cbeebiesPeter Rabbit. Picture it. You are surrounded. Zombie hoards are closing in all around you. These aren’t slow slow zombies either, these are crap inducing, rage fuelled zombies that run faster then light. You don’t need to be fast, you need to be proper fast! You don’t just need to be Peter Rabbit fast, you need the updated cbeebies Peter Rabbit fast! Plus I imagine him being pretty handy in finding food.

Well that’s my team to get me through the zombie apocalypse. What do you reckon my chances are?

Who would you include? 

*Obviously I may have played a little fast and loose with the term “character” at points.

  2. Quoting kid shows to people who have no idea what you’re on about.
