The Article said that the Sprout name would still be the name for their Preschool shows and that Universal Kids for the Older Kids Programming from 6 pm-3am.
I'm not entirely sure if it meant the channel will still have preschool shows after it rebrands to Universal Kids or if they'll still use the Sprout branding for preschool programming after Universal Kids starts.

Hank Zipzer is quite a British show (apart from Henry Winkler), it will be interesting to see how it does in the US.

Winkler (who created and stars in it) even said in an interview that he would never be able to sell it in the US because of the cultural differences.

It has already premiered in several European countries on Disney XD / Disney Channel.

It's been so long since I've watched Sprout. I only watched it when I was in Kindergarden when it was still PBS Kids Sprout. Definitely will check out the Universal Kids channel.

They've been doing that for 11 and a half years, I say it's time for a change.
That's an OPINION

But seriously it's like one of those shows that you don't want off a channel even though it's been there for a ton of years

https://youtu.be/OGaZr1-0O7o Hey if Wolverine can be rated-R, and if Harley Quinn can get an R-rated animated series, plus if John Bloddy Constantine can be in Justice League Action, I can't see why Deadpool can't be PG-13.
