Welcome To The Wiki!

We are a collaborative encyclopedia dedicated to the now defunct television channel, PBS Kids Sprout. A joint venture among PBS, HiT Entertainment, Comcast, and Sesame Workshop, PBS Kids Sprout started out as an on-demand service, and later became a full-fledged cable TV channel on September 26, 2005, replacing the 24/7 PBS Kids Channel.

The multi-platform approach was designed to appeal to different viewing habits, with the linear channel focused on variety, and the on-demand services focused on instantaneous access to specific programs. The linear service was designed around dayparted programming blocks, featuring activities and other feature segments presented by on-air hosts. Some of these segments were designed to promote supplemental content (including activities and interactive features) on Sprout's website

Sprout's scheduling also eschewed the practice of combining multiple episodes of short-form children's series into a single half-hour episode with interstitial segments for U.S. broadcast, electing to air such programs individually in their original format.

On Sprout's 10th anniversary on September 26, 2015, Barney and Friends, Thomas and Friends and Super Why! were removed and replaced with other shows. The channel rebranded to Universal Kids on September 9, 2017.

Our Mission

Our mission to be an honest, complete archive of everything relating to the PBS Kids Sprout channel from September 26, 2005 to September 26, 2015. We will have pages on various shows and programming blocks. We won't let an important part of children's television be erased. Come join us today!


Before you get started editing on the wiki, make sure you follow these rules:

  1. Stay on-topic. This wiki only allows Sprout content from September 26, 2005 to September 26, 2015. Anything outside those dates isn't allowed.
  2. No bullying, discrimination, or hate speech of any kind. This means no racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ableism, antisemitism, Islamophobia, etc.
  3. Trolling isn't allowed either. Picking on someone because they like a preschool show is unkind and uncalled for. If you hate preschool shows, what are you doing here?
  4. Please respect others' opinions on shows.
  5. When adding images for Sprout airings of shows, please make sure that they are real and not fanmade.
  6. On that note, only add true facts. No fanon or speculation allowed such as "The Bob the Builder franchise will come back for Season 22 on Universal Kids".
  7. Don't make blank pages or pages with only one sentence.
  8. If you have a question, feel free to ask the founder and bureaucrat, NeptuneID13 on her message wall, as long as it's not about the Bob the Builder reboot or if Thomas & Friends will return to Universal Kids (spoiler alert: IT WON'T!)
