The 1990s Mr. Men cartoon had 107 four-minute segments. Bundling them into groups of five results in 12,757,027,920 unique combinations where no segment is played more than once. Anybody want to go content farming?
I made a ranking of English American kids networks in order of searches on Google Trends. I learned that PBS trumps Nickelodeon, Qubo and Universal Kids are above NickToons, TeenNick, and Discovery Family, Cartoon Network barely outclasses Disney Channel, and Nickelodeon has a music channel.
Universal Kids: I have never seen a network that is owned by the same conglomerate as DreamWorks, owes its existence to DreamWorks, and promised to strengthen its relationship with DreamWorks have such active contempt for DreamWorks.
I’m adding Primo to Triad, turning it into QUAD. So now it’s Qubo, DiscFam, UniKids, and Primo. Should I add V-Me Kids to it for preschool content? It’s a sister channel to Primo, so it won’t affect it that much.
The Jim Henson Company is announcing another promising feature, huh? The Portable Door? The Office meets Harry Potter? Sure can't wait to be disappointed when it comes out in a decade from now in a form that takes a dump on not just the original idea, but the Jim Henson legacy as a whole(cough cough Happytime Murders), provided it's even released at all(cough cough Fraggle Rock movie).
Mao Mao has been on hiatus since October. There will be no new episodes airing in June in the U.S., despite those last 9 episodes of Season 1 (31-40) allegedly leaked by Aussie streaming service Stan back in April, and we've been telling ourselves NOT to spoil any of these episodes on social media until they are officially released.
Man, it's really hard to like your favorite show when it's stuck in a long hiatus...
I found this interview that Pam Arciero (Grundgetta from Sesame Street) took part in. I mainly skipped to 1:35, where she mentioned how production on the show ground to a halt because of the pandemic. There was about 1 more week of material to tape. She says they could start again in October, but that could change.
