    Martha is a dog who, upon eating alphabet soup, can speak! Based on Susan Meddaugh's children's books, this show aims to teach young children new words as Martha communicates with her best friend, ten-year-old Helen. Martha Speaks Theme Song: Martha was an average dog. She went-bark.-And-woof. And-arrr. But when she ate some alphabet soup, then what happened was bizzare. On the way to Martha's stomach, the letters lost their way. They traveled to her brain and now- She's got a lot to say. Now she speaks. How now brown cow? Martha speaks. Yeah, she speaks and speaks and speaks and speaks and speaks... What's a caboose? When are we eating again? Martha speaks... Hey Joe, what d'ya know! My name's not Joe. She's not always right but still that Martha speaks. Hi there! She's got a voice; she's ready to shout. Martha will tell you what it's all about. Sometimes wrong, but seldom in doubt. Martha will tell you what it's all about. That dog's unique... Testing, one, two! Hear her speak! Martha speaks and speaks and speaks and speaks and... Communicates, enumerates, elucidates, exaggerates, indicates, and explicates, bloviates, and overstates, and (pant, pant, pant)hyperventilates! Martha...to reiterate, Martha Speaks!moreless

    Welcome to the ¿Qué Pasa, U.S.A.? guide at TV.com. ¿Qué Pasa, USA? was and still is America's first bilingual situation comedy. The program explored the trials and tribulations faced by a Cuban family, named Peña,in Miami as they struggled to cope with a new country and a new language. The series focused on the identity crisis of the teenage members of the family as they are pulled in one direction by their elders who want to maintain Cuban values and traditions - and pulled in other directions by the pressures of living in a predominantly Anglo society. The series is bilingual, reflecting the mix of language often heard in Cuban-American neighborhoods from Spanish in the home and English at the supermarket to the inevitable combining of both into "Spanglish."moreless

    It's a dream come true for all young dino-fans: a CGI-animated series called Dinosaur Train brings the natural sciences, including history and paleontology, to life. Aimed at preschoolers, this new PBS Kids series, co-produced by the Jim Henson Co., includes 40 half-hour episodes featuring live-action and paleontologist Dr. Scott Sampson as well as additional learning resources like an interactive Web site for children and activities for parents and teachers. Dinosaur Train was created by Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold) and focuses on the adventures of pteranadons Shiny, Tiny and Don as well as their adopted brother, Buddy. Buddy is a curious young dinosaur who is determined to learn his true origins. He likes to make hypotheses (educated, scientific predictions) and is a keen observer of the world around him. To aid him in his quest to learn about his world, his parents often take him on the Dinosaur Train, a fantastical train capable of time-traveling to any period in the Mesozoic Era through devices known as "time tunnels." Dinosaur Train is seen weekdays on most PBSKids stations as part of the PBSKids Preschool Block, featuring Miss Rosa. The program is presented in widescreen, is rated TV-Y with E/I for educational/instructional content and features CGI animation.moreless

    PBS
    Five years in the making, Between the Lions has set out to get kids "wild about reading". Between the Lions is written by many of the major greats of Sesame Street, such as Christopher Cerf. Many former Arthur staff are involved as well, including Joe "Toolbox" Fallon and Ken Scarborough. New episodes are now airing! In every episode, there can be found countless sight gags, puns, parodies, songs, and more, all of which are designed to help kids better understand the pronunciation of everyday words.

    The setting for the show is, fittingly, a library, where husband-and-wife team Theo and Cleo are the Librarians. Their inquisitive cubs, younger sister Leona and older brother Lionel, often help them out, while another character - the Information Hen - dispenses information to perplexed Library patrons.

    Among the other colorful characters likely to be encountered, is a statue of the library's founder, Barnaby B. ("Don't Call Me Buster!") Busterfield III, who makes sarcastic comments about the silliness he often witnesses going on in the library. There are also two dim-witted pigeons, Clay and Walter (get it?) who hang around the statue, keeping him company - but he just wishes they'd go away!

    Additional characters include Click the Computer Mouse, who has the amazing ability to extract characters from books and bring them to life, and can even place real people in books! Arty Smartypants is an oily entertainer usually seen "reading words without any assistance whatsoever!" And, believe it or not, Dr. Ruth Westheimer can sometimes be seen dispensing advice, also. (About words, of course!) And likeable, white-haired Fred Newman provides a vast repertoire of hilarious "mouth sounds."

    Between the Lions was cancelled, but then brought back thanks to the help of Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB), working together with WGBH.

    Yes, it's quite a library.

    Between the Lions is funded in part by a Ready To Learn Television Cooperative Agreement from the U.S. Department of Education through the Public Broadcasting Service. National corporate sponsorship is provided by Chick-fil-A. Additional funding is provided by the Krueger Charitable Foundation.

    Between the Lions can be found online at (pbskids.org/lions. The Between the Lions team is committed to making quality television available to all children. Each episode is accessible to blind and visually impaired viewers through WGBH Boston's innovative, Emmy Award-winning Descriptive Video Service (DVS). The series also is closed captioned by the Media Access Group at WGBH for viewers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.

    Between the Lions is seen on PBS, which means that it's broadcast time varies from station to station (10:30 on one station, 3:30 on another, etc). Check your local listings, for time and channel (the time and day listed below is for the New Jersey Network, or NJN).
