I only seen parts of this show since it started.  Do you think the kids are told what to say?   It certainly doesn't seem like the original show (that's how old I am).  Maybe I'm expecting too much.  It's just not funny to me.

I agree, the kids sound as if they've been told what to say.  For me, this show just isn't as funny as the original.

Yes.  Future little actors.

I loved the original with Art Linklletter.

 

Some things can’t be duplicated.

 

In all fairness, I haven’t seen the new show.

Re: Kids Say the Darnest Thing

I've wondered about that too. The kid who says his buffet age is four and then goes on to explain that is what he says at the restaurant which gives a price break to those four and under was funny, but then I wondered if it was rehearsed.

Re: Kids Say the Darnest Thing

It's hard to say whether these kids have been coached or not on what to say.  It doesn't strike me as being as natural as the original show (yes, I remember it too) or as funny.  Could just be the times we are living in.

 

I liked Little Big Shots w/Steve Harvey as host better than this.

Re: Kids Say the Darnest Thing

It makes you raise an eyebrow. The behavior of the children just do not seem to be authentic. I know some precocious kids, but the verdict is still out with these. They certainly do not act like any children I know, but they are so cute.

Re: Kids Say the Darnest Thing

It seems too scripted to me.  Maybe some things could be real but it appears there are rehearsals.
