Philadelphia, PA · September 19, 2007 /PRNewswire/ — PBS KIDS Sprout (SproutOnline.com), the first and only 24-hour preschool destination available on TV, on demand and online for kids ages 2-5 and their parents and caregivers, will launch television’s only live preschool morning program, The Sunny Side Up Show, on Wednesday, September 26, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. ET. This new three hour block will link Sprout’s gold-standard shows, such as Barney & Friends™ and Bob The Builder™, with live, hosted segments that create a warm, welcoming and fun environment where preschoolers and their parents and caregivers can gather each weekday morning to prepare for the day ahead and share birthdays, greetings, ideas, crafts and interact live with the hosts (via email submissions through SproutOnline.com).
Each week, The Sunny Side Up Show will explore a new theme ranging from colors, numbers and letters to manners, gardening and pets. Themes will also reflect holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving and Mother’s Day. Special guests will stop by to visit on a regular basis, so on any given day, viewers could get a special treat from a Sesame Street® character like Big Bird, or Nina from Sprout’s The Good Night Show.
