“Let it Go”, “Scooby-Dooby-Doo” and “To Infinity and Beyond” are the most iconic kids’ TV and film catchphrases, according to parents.
The top 50 list also includes “Paw Patrol is on a roll”, “Peeeeepa Pig” and Bob the Builder’s “Can we fix it? Yes, we can”.
In the Night Garden’s “Upsy Daisy” phrase also made the top 50, as did “Cowabunga” from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Blaze and the Monster Machine’s catchline “Let’s Blaze”.
The poll of 1,000 mums and dads of 2–7 year-olds found more than half of them use sounds or phrases from TV shows and films to ask their child what they want to watch.
And the research, commissioned by Sky Q to launch its new voice search feature, Kids Quotes, found 61 per cent of youngsters referred to their favourite programmes by using sounds from the shows before they could even speak.
More than one in 10 children have used a pig snort noise to indicate they wanted to watch Peppa Pig and 13 per cent have said the phrase “Chase is on the case” to ask for Paw Patrol.

Catchphrases in day-to-day life

The study also found that of those who have a voice search function on their TV, 79 per cent said their child has tried to use it to bring up their favourite TV show.
And almost nine in 10 parents said this helps their child pick what they want to watch.
The study also found more than two thirds of children use catchphrases from TV and film in day-to-day life.
Three quarters of parents even believe these slogans have helped their child learn.
A further two in five youngsters started to use a TV remote before they started school and more than three quarters did so before the age of five.
Seven in 10 also said recognisable sounds from TV shows and films made it easier to understand what their child wanted to watch before they could even speak.
But 55 per cent have on occasion struggled to identify what they were asking for.
Kids’ favourite shows today were found to be Peppa Pig (29 per cent), Paw Patrol (28 per cent) and Fireman Sam (21 per cent).

Parents enjoy them too

It also emerged more than a third of children typically decide what they want to watch and, luckily, 80 per cent of the parents polled via OnePoll enjoy watching their children’s choice of programme.
Storm Keating, who is fronting the campaign for Sky Q said: “We have great fun watching Cooper and Coco’s favourite shows together as a family and now Cooper can use his favourite phrases with Sky Q’s ‘Kids Quotes’ to easily get to what he wants to
watch.
“He definitely knows more phrases than I do, but now I don’t need to play the guessing game.”
To help families quickly get to the TV their kids want, Sky Q has launched Kids Quotes, a new voice search feature, with 20 of the nation’s most iconic catchphrases now added to its leading voice control platform.
Phrases such as ‘Let it Go’ will help kids easily find Frozen, ‘Chase is on the case’ will take you straight to Paw Patrol and ‘Oh George’ will bring your favourite pig, Peppa to the big screen.
Fraser Stirling, group chief product officer, at Sky, said: “It’s natural to talk to your TV, which is why kids love using voice search on Sky Q, and by adding their favourite catchphrases we’re making finding what they want to watch fun, easy and quick.”
