    PBS
    "Growing Up is the Greatest Adventure of All" Welcome to the Caillou guide at TV.com! This show is about the life of a young bald boy named Caillou, his family and his friends. It is based on the books by Christine L'Heureux and Helene Despeteaux, which is highly popular in the Quebec area in Canada. There are actually two versions of the show. The first version premiered in late 1997, is only 5+65/2=35 minutes in length, consists of 65+7/2=36 episodes, and is fully animated. The plotline of this version is that a grandmother reads her grandchildren a Caillou book which Will Re-air with a Grandfather Named Bob West With Brain E. as Michael. The second version, which premiered in late 2000, has the show exended to 30+50/2=40 minutes, and has puppets, music and live action segments thrown in. The animation parts, however, are a mixture of the first version of the show with the "grandma reading to kids" part of the story lopped off & Re-aired on Television! and some new stories (the stories are completely original as of the U.S. second season.) You can usually tell when you're watching a story lifted from the first version because in these, Caillou wears a non-descript dull-grey shirt rather than the bright-yellow one he wears in the newer segments. It premiered in the US and is now airing side-by-side with repeats of the old version in Canada. It is also aired around the world, although some parts of the world still air the old version. In 2006, Caillou debuted even more new episodes. These new episodes now feature fantasy segments, but no longer any puppet segments or musical numbers performed by real children. Instead, Caillou performs a song in-between the second and third story segments of each episode. These new episodes have now finished their run, & Newer Ones Aired in 8 years later! but if you missed any, watch for upcoming repeats on PBS. Both versions of the show are known to be available in 2 languages - French and English. The show is produced by Cookie Jar animation in Canada, known in older seasons as CINAR. It is available in Dolby Surround and with Close Captioning on selected networks. Note 1:The old (5+65/2=35 minute) version is listed in this guide as Season 1 episodes, while the new (30+50/2=40 minute) version are listed as episodes from Season 2 onwards. Also, due to the varying runtimes, the runtime entry is omitted on purpose. Note 2: The network in the information section was formerly Teletoon, as this was the first network to pick up the show. It has been changed to PBS to reflect that the airdates listed in the guide for the newer (and current) episodes of show reflect the dates that the program aired on PBS. Note 3: The new version is aired under the title "Caillou and Friends" on TeleToon Canada. This is done presumably to avoid title conflicts with the old version of the show. Note 4: Season 3-4/2-3US Does Nwo Contain new Improved/ Ones Narrated by Bob West! From Barney & Friends! Along With Brian E. Lauren K. Ricky C. Jessica Z., & Leah Gloria as Well! Along with Sonia M. & Northern C. From The S. S. Show! in 1986!moreless

    Tiny Toon Adventures is basically a kid-version of the classic Warner Bros. cartoon stars and their cartoons. This show is hosted by Buster and Babs Bunny (No relation!) and their friends Plucky Duck, an egotistical power crazy duck much like Daffy Duck, and Hamton Pig, a shy, kind-hearted pig with low self-esteem but just like Porky Pig, but is a Neat Freak. The toons are constantly terrorized by Dizzy Devil, a purple version of Taz; Elmyra Duff, a dangerously childish, animal loving freak of nature which makes any animal who comes near her run; and lastly, we have rich kid Montana Max, who goes by the philosophy that rich people never pay and hates everyone and everything. The toons get their vast cartoon smarts from the Acme Looniversity school, with the famous Warner Bros. cartoon stars as teachers. The school also had a rival as well, Perfecto Prep., a school with a reputation of cheating characters. Tiny Toon Adventures was a treasure trove of pop-culture cliches and paid homage to many of the classic Warner Bros. cartoons of yore.
    The series won 7 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program, Outstanding Original Song - main title theme, Outstanding Writing in an Animated Program, Outstanding Animated Program and Outstanding Music Direction and Composition - Fields of Honey, Love Disconnection & The Horror of Slumber Party Mountain.

    Beavis and Butt-head

    Follow
    MTV - Music Television
    Beavis and Butt-head was first aired on the U.S. cable network MTV in March 1993. This show, which combined animation and music videos, was an example of the unique programming that MTV has consistently provided for its youthful demographics. The half-hour program alternated between a simple narrative, which focused on the exploits of two low-life adolescents, and clips from music videos, which the two teens commented on. Creator Mike Judge had penned the aimless duo for a festival of animation when Abby Turkuhle, MTV's senior vice president picked up an episode for the network's animated compendium Liquid Television. MTV immediately contracted for 65 episodes from Judge, with Turkuhle as producer, and placed Beavis and Butt-head in the 7:00 and 11:00 P.M. week-day time slots. The characters, Beavis and Butt-head, are rude, crude, and stupid, and can be placed in the "dumb comedy" tradition, which includes Abbott and Costello, The Three Stooges, Cheech and Chong, Saturday Night Live's Wayne and Garth, and FOX's The Simpsons. When the show debuted, television critics differed in their opinions, with some praising the show for daring to present the stupidity of male "metalheads" who watch too much television (effectively satirizing the core MTV audience), and others categorizing Beavis and Butt-head as another example of television's declining quality. Beavis and Butt-head did find an audience and began pulling in MTV's highest ratings. But the show was also quite controversial, instigating heated public debate on the interconnected issues of representations of violence in the media and generational politics surrounding youth subcultures. Beavis and Butt-head they found, was especially popular with those in their twenties. It turned out to be bothersome to many that young people enjoyed the show and laughed at its two imbecilic boys, even if these fans were much more intelligent and much less grating than Beavis and Butt-head. In this sense, Beavis and Butt-head raised the issue of generational taste cultures. Definitions of "taste," Pierre Bourdieu notes, "unite and separate, uniting those who are the product of similar conditions but only by distinguishing them from all others. And taste distinguishes in an essential way, since it is the basis of all that one has--people and things--and of all that one is for others, whereby one classifies oneself and is classified by others." To the degree that taste cultures agree, they are brought together into a subcultural formation; but to this degree they are also separated from those with whom they differ. It was the "bad taste" of Beavis and Butt-head's audience which bothered many, and this brings to the surface another one of the reasons why Beavis and Butt-head was so controversial. Cultural critics, educators, and concerned parents gathered skeptically, sternly, and anxiously in front of the television set and passed judgment upon the "tasteless" Beavis and Butt-head show. And in an ironic reversal, Beavis and Butt-head countered by ascending the cultural hierarchy. The two youths channel-surfed, looking for videos that didn't suck (i.e. those with heavy metal or hardcore rap, those that contained violence, or encouraged genital response.) In becoming the self-proclaimed Siskel and Ebert of music video, they served to evaluate pop culture with an unencumbered bottom line--does a music video "suck" or is it "cool?" Beavis and Butt-head as a television show, was certainly towards the lower end of traditional scales of cultural "quality." But these two animated "slackers" evaluated other media, and so pronounced their own critical opinions and erected their own taste hierarchies. Beavis and Butt-head had their own particular brand of "taste:" they determined acceptability and unacceptability, invoking, while simultaneously upending, notions of "high" and "low" culture. In this, they entered that hallowed sphere of criticism, where they competed with others in overseeing the public good and preserving the place and status of artistic evaluation. They disregarded other accepted forms of authority, refusing to acknowledge their own limited perspectives. But like other critics, this was an important part of their appeal. After all, critics are sought out for straightforward opinion, not muddled oscillation. In this recuperation of the critical discourse, Beavis and Butt-head joined with their audience, approximating the contradictory impulses of contemporary cynical youth, who mixed their self-delusion with self-awareness. In the case of fans of Beavis and Butt-head, these lines of demarcation indicated both a generational unity and the generation-based barriers between the baby boomers and the "baby busters." The reputed cynicism of the "twentynothings" was on view as Beavis and Butt-head evoked both a stunted adolescence which was long past and an unsure and seemingly inaccessible future.moreless

    Two Hispanic children, Max and Emmy, move into a new home. Like any young children, they're not quite happy at first about moving. Then, Emmy finds a secret drawer and inside is box containing a magical, shimmering dragon scale. Hmmm... there's some words on the box. What do they say? "I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with dragons, in a land apart." The magical decorations fly around them, transporting them (and us) to Dragon Land.

    Brought to you by Sesame Workshop (formerly Children's Television Workshop), the company that brings you Sesame Street it's Dragon Tales! Join Cassie, Ord, Zak & Wheezie, Quetzal, and their human friends, Max and Emmy in two daily adventures, each separated by a musical interstitial, "Dragon Tunes."

    Dragon Tales has enjoyed two seasons and many years of success on PBSKids. The show's popularity has spawned book, video, DVD and CD releases and even a live stage show. Now, the show's popularity has prompted its return. The third season is now airing in repeats along with the first and second, featuring folk songs and a folk theme, as well as a new character named Enrique --- a pleasant looking fellow in an Arthureseque outfit who's moved in next door to Max and Emmy. As some new stories are being paired with past stories, keep an eye on this guide to find out what's new and what's not. The new Dragon Tales CD released on February 15, 2005, featuring 14 tracks, some previously available on CD, but some never-before-released ones as well, such as "Friends," "Hola," and "Speak Up."

    After it's return in 2005, it's not yet known if any further new episodes will air. Please note that the show status is currently listed as On Hiatus / TBD, but that may change if it turns out the program will return.

    Dragon Tales is going to be part of the new PBSKids "pre-school block." Watch for this special block of programming beginning this fall. It will feature two new PBSKids shows It's a Big Big World and Curious George along with this show and Clifford the Big Red Dog.

    Character Guide:

    Emmy: Emmy is six-years old and has an active spirit and sense of adventure. She's always ready to chip in her ideas, participate in fun games and sporting activities and help out all of her friends. However, her take-charge personality can sometimes rub the wrong way and she occasionally needs to take a step back when she becomes too close to the action. Her best dragon friend is Cassie and she usually rides with her.

    Max: Max is Emmy's four-year old little brother. He's always happy to join her on an adventure to Dragon Land, but sometimes gets upset about being too small to do certain things. Although not as competitive or sporty as Emmy, he too delights in the fun adventures that Dragon Land has to offer. His best dragon friend is Ord and he usually rides with him.

    Cassie: Cassie is a sweet and intelligent, but rather shy pink dragon. She often has many great ideas and is good at many things, but sometimes lacks the confidence to speak her mind. She gets help from all of her friends, especially Emmy, and from her teacher Quetzal. Family is very important to Cassie, as she has 72 brothers and sisters and sometimes helps her parents to take care of her little sister Kiki and her little brother, Finn.

    Birthday: May 16

    Ord: Ord is a tall blue dragon who loves nothing more than to eat, particularly anything with dragonberrys in it. Though his tall height appears scary at first, he himself fears many things. One of his biggest fears is the dark, a problem he often wrestles with in the series.

    Birthday: September 9

    Zak: Zak is not only a brother to his sister, Wheezie, he's also a very special partner. Zak and Wheezie are a dynamic duo, a two-headed dragon who often work together, but can also think quite independently. Zak enjoys the status quo, but his wild sister Wheezie often helps him to find a good time. Desiring peace, Zak often finds himself at the receiving end of various indignities --- from food on the head to a fish blowing bubbles straight in his face.

    Birthday: July 21

    Wheezie: Wheezie is a high-strung dragon who loves singing, doing wild things and shouting and singing about the things she loves. Sister of and joined with Zak, she can't always understand his desire for her to calm down. Still, the two always find in the end that they wouldn't have it any other way.

    Birthday: July 21

    Quetzal: Hailing from some sort of Dragon Land Mexico, apparently, Quetzal is a wise dragon teacher who instructs the kids and dragons at the School in the Sky. Unlike other dragon adults, he's only a bit larger than the kids, to keep him easily recognizable to the viewing audience. Quetzal has a magical book that contains reference on many things in Dragon Land. He's always a great source of advice, but tries as best as possible to only help the kids and dragons in solving their own problems.

    Birthday: September 27

    Enrique: He's a new character coming to the third season of the program in February 2005. Enrique is raised by his Dad and Grandma and he's recently moved to the area where Max and Emmy live, all the way from Colombia. They meet and show him Dragon Land. At first, he's a bit scared, especially because he finds it hard to connect with people, having moved many times. But soon he's having great adventures in Dragon Land, just like Max and Emmy! Since Zak and Wheezie were left, he rides with them, and they're delighted at the opportunity to have someone to ride with them, since they usually flew only with each other in the past.


    Dragon Tales airs weekdays on most PBS stations and also in some foreign markets.

    Cartoon Network (ended 2009)
    Ed, Edd n' Eddy is the longest running animated series produced by Cartoon Network. The show is based on three adolescent boys, Ed, Edd n' Eddy. They hang around their suburban neighborhood of Peach Creek Estates, coming up with scams to con their peers for cash, so they can buy themselves a handful of their favorite treat, jawbreakers. Their plans normally fail though, leaving them in predicaments and situations that always go hay-wire. The characters almost never leave the neighborhood, and adults are nowhere to be seen, as well as any other kids.

    The series was first aired in 1999 on Cartoon Network as the fifth series of the network and has since attracted millions of fans worldwide. Originally, there were to only be four seasons; Cartoon Network, however, has ordered two more seasons of Ed, Edd n Eddy, bringing the series' length to six seasons. There are also be three holiday specials: Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day.

    '''Ed''' is the workhorse of the group. He is known to laugh a lot, and he is happy most of the time. His mind is a [[subculture]] grab bag full of comics and monster movies, which he often confuses with reality. Ed is utterly at the mercy of his tyrannical younger sister Sarah, who he cares for deeply, and is an easy target for her manipulations. Much to the dismay of [[germophobic]] Edd, he has poor personal hygiene, even to the point of being terrified of [[soap]]. He loves buttered toast, [[gravy]], [[comics]], [[pudding skin]] and animals, especially chickens. Ed is voiced by [[Matt Hill]].. Edd(Double-D)is a young inventor and neat freak. The most intelligent and good hearted of the trio, he is never seen without his trademark sock-like black ski hat, hiding some kind of secret unknown to all the kids except Ed and Eddy. To differentiate his homophonic name from that of Ed, everyone in the series calls him Double-D. His parents put a heavy workload on him, communicating an excess of tasks solely through a multitude of sticky notes. Edd hates being treated terribly by everyone and is easily frustrated. Edd is normally a straight-A student in all of his s and hates sports (apparently because of an odd, never-discussed "dodgeball" incident). Edd is an excellent pedal steel guitar player, although he insists that he detests the instrument. Edd is amazingly intelligent, able to construct complicated machines from cardboard, signs, and various junk the Eds come across. Edd is voiced by Samuel Vincent.Eddy A greedy, ill-tempered con artist, Eddy is the self-appointed leader of the Eds. He goes to great lengths to scam the other kids out of their money, even at the expense of his friends' credibility. His efforts are all in the pursuit of jawbreakers, which he loves as much as he does money. He is very sensitive about his lack of height, suggesting that he may have a Napoleon complex. Eddy detests school, and more than once has tried to escape. His report card labels him a megalomaniac. Eddy loves his retro room, complete with a lava lamp, a large round king- bed, a disco ball, and a turntable. Eddy is mostly seen commanding the two Eds into building the scams while he does non-physical work. He is incredibly selfish, caring for only the well-being of himself and acquiring jawbreakers, even choosing jawbreakers over his friends. Eddy is voiced by Tony Sampson.

    Sarah is Ed's bossy spoiled little sister, who acts cute and charming only when it serves her. Sarah has Ed's unending loyalty and obedience, mostly from her threats of snitching on him. She has a short temper and is easily agitated by others, especially her brother. She is almost always playing with Jimmy, and when she's not, rushes to his aid the moment Jimmy calls her. Sarah writes about her innermost feelings in her diary, and has a slight love for Edd (albeit usually not enough to spare him from her wrath). She is voiced by Janyse Jaud. Kevin is the jock and cool guy around the block who dislikes the Eds, especially Eddy, and always calls them 'Dorks'. Jimmy is a rather effeminate boy who hangs around with Sarah and chooses to bake cookies and pick flowers rather than anything too tough. Rolf is a foreinger in Peach Creek who often confuses people with his sayings and traditional culture. Nazz is a cool, good-natured, and attractive girl who catches the eye of almost every guy in the neighborhood. Jonny is a wacky, good-natured, and cheerful boy who usually falls for every scam the Eds cook up. He is always seen with his best friend Plank, a piece of wood who may possibly have a mind of his own. But only Jonny knows what he's saying. The Kanker Sisters are a trio of troublesome girls who are out to ruin everyone's good time. They are, however, infatuated with the Eds, while it's the complete opposite with the Eds. May has a preference for Ed, Marie for Edd, and Lee for Eddy.moreless

    Rocket Power premiered on Nickelodeon on August 16, 1999, and can now be seen weekdays at 4:30 A.M EST onNicktoons Network, and on Sunday mornings at 6:00 A.M. EST on Nickelodeon. The show is about four friends who are addicted to action and extreme sports. Otto Rocket, his sister Reggie, and their pals Twister and Sam excel at just about every aggressive sport you can imagine. Their hometown of Ocean Shores, CA is the ultimate place for a game of hockey, skating the half-pipe or rollerblading on the boardwalk. There are extreme sports for all seasons, however, so don't be surprised if you catch the kids heading up to the mountains for snowboarding, ice hockey, and all manner of arctic action. All that competition can get, well, pretty competitive sometimes. So it's a good thing folks like Otto and Reggie's dad Ray and his business partner Tito Makani are around to remind everyone that way cool friendships are more important than winning events. Main Characters Otto Rocket: Otto is the leader of the group. As they say in the episode "All About Sam", he's a total action guy. He can be selfish and overly-competitive at times, and even more unreliable, but he tries to be a good friend, and more often than not, he does a pretty good job at it. He's also "rad" on wheels, waves and powder, and he plays a mean game of hockey! Reggie Rocket: Reggie is Otto's older sister, by two years. She's awesome at sports, and at times, she can be as competitive as her younger brother. She can be a little bossy sometimes, but she really doesn't mean to be. She is mostly the one who keeps Otto down to earth when he gets a bit too self-centered, and there are times when she acts as his conscience. So there's a lot more to this action-loving girl athlete that what she can do with a skateboard, a surfboard, a hockey stick, and a laptop. Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez: Twister is Otto's best bro. He's totally rad with his video camera, which he uses to tape all the extreme stunts he, Otto, and Reggie do. He's a little bit slow on the uptake, but in a totally sweet (well, the girls on this site think that) and comical way. Samuel L. "Squid" Dullard: Sam is probably the least extreme of the group, but that doesn't make him any less awesome. He's Reggie's best bro. He helps her publish her Zine on his laptop. Sam is pretty much the brains of The Rocket Gang, but it's his fear of risks that helps to keep the gang from going too far. Ray "Raymundo" Rocket: Ray has done a lot of things in his long life. But if the kids get into some trouble, they get a big punishment! Other then that he's a really nice guy. Tito Makani: Tito is a native of the beautiful state of Hawaii. He is really nice guy. He gives the "little cuzzes" Ancient Hawaiian advice and help with surfing. Sometimes he can go a little overboard with what he's doing, but it all comes out ok. From March 26 to April 8, 2002 a contest and show called Maximum Rocket Power Live: The Battle For Madtown Park where teams would compete in extreme sports like the Rocket Gang did.

    BBC Two (ended 2008)
    Postman Pat was based on a series of books by John Cunliffe, the program is about a rural postman who helps his friends in the village of Greendale, based supposedly in Cumbria, England. The first series of thirteen 15-minute episodes was produced by Woodland Animations and broadcast by the BBC in 1981. Ivor Wood, a vetaran of animations like The Magic Roundabout, was at the helm as producer. Ken Barrie sang the well known theme tune and provided the narration. The stories were very successful and have seen endless repeats over the years. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show in 1991, the old production crew was reunited for two one-off 25 minute specials, again shown by the BBC. Two more came in 1995, and these were followed by a second full series of 13 adventures. Then, after almost 10 years of absence from our screens, Postman Pat returned in 2004 for his third series. This consisted of 25 new episodes and several specials. The model animation was a far cry from the simple look of the early 80's, with brighter sets, much smoother puppet movements and characters voices lip-synched. Ken Barrie is still the voice of our favorite postman, but he is also joined by a cast of other talented voice artists, like Carole Boyd. For the final season in 2008, the series was titled Postman Pat: Special Delivery Service. The show aired on BBC2 from 1981-2002, CBBC from 1986-2002 and at CBeebies from 2003-2008. Reruns continue today on CBeebies.moreless

    Nickelodeon (ended 2004)
    Little Bill is the story of the Glover family, told through the viewpoint of the youngest son, Bill Glover Jr., affectionately known as Little Bill. Little Bill lives with his mother, Brenda, a photographer, Big Bill, a housing inspector for the city, his two older siblings, April and Bobby, and Brenda's grandmother, known as Alice The Great. Each episode usually consists of two stories showing Little Bill's home life or at school, illustrating the usual goings-on of a five year old's life. At the end of the show, Little Bill usually addresses the audience, recapping what happened to him and what he learned that day, prompting one of his other family members to ask, "Little Bill, who are you talking to?" Note: Little Bill is loosely based on the life of creator Bill Cosby, who was most likely referred to as Little Bill as a child since his name is William Henry Cosby, Jr. In real life, however, Dr. Cosby is the oldest of four brothers, not the youngest of three children. Congratulations to Little Bill, winner of 2 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program - Gregory Hines and Outstanding Children's Animated Program.moreless

    Johnny Bravo tells the story of a biceps-bulging, karate-chopping free spirit, who believes he's a gift from God to the women of the earth. Unfortunately for Johnny, everyone else sees him as a narcissistic Mama's boy with big muscles and even bigger hair. In short, he is the quintessential guy who "just doesn't get it." No matter what he does, or where he finds himself, he always winds up being his own worst enemy.moreless

    Nickelodeon (ended 2003)
    In the year 1989, two married parents named Gsapo Csupo and Arlene Klasky made the pilot for the show; their baby son, Brendon, was their inspiration to create the Rugrats. After showing it to Nickelodeon they automatically liked it and turned it into a series; in three years, Rugrats had aired more than fifty episodes. With a total of sixty five episodes they stopped making new episodes and Rugrats was shown in primetime in 1994; after that, the popularity of the show increased. Nickelodeon realized what good ratings they had and they decided to air brand new episodes of Rugrats in 1997; it was so popular that it had its first movie to be shown in theaters the following year featuring a new Rugrat named Dil. After the movie, they aired even more new episodes, including Dil with them on the show; then again in the year 2000, Nickelodeon made a second movie for the Rugrats, giving Chuckie a stepmom and featuring another new Rugrat named Kimi. More new episodes aired after that with Kimi and in the year 2001, Nick had big plans for the show. With Rugrats in their tenth year, so Arlene Klasky and Nickelodeon decided to make the Rugrats ten years older in their anniversary special, "All Growed Up;" this episode was the most viewed Rugrats-related episode. Originally, there were only four young rugrats who would sit in their playpen watching the world go by. The fearless leader of the group was Tommy Pickles, a resourceful baby who hides a plastic screwdriver in his diaper so that they can leave the pen. His best friend was Chuckie, a fearful, red-haired toddler who reluctantly agreed to venture out into the open, unsafe areas of the house. There were also the twins Phil and Lil who were always ready for any new challenge. Leaving the safety of their own playpen, the children would explore their surroundings and try to make sense out of what the adults are doing. Some of the most interesting characters were the parents and Tommy and Angelica's grandfather who would always fall asleep when taking care of the children. The parents' comments are so genuine that they bring a sense of reality to the show. Even the parents had different lives, with Chuckie's widowed father, and Angelica's loving father and busy mother.moreless
