Deadline is reporting that Sprout will be rebranded as Universal Kids this September.

https://deadline.com/2017/05/sprout...unior-dreamworks-animation-series-1202080226/

The general preschool shows will continue from 3 am to 6 pm. But from 6 pm to 3 am, there will be more general family programming like "Top Chef Junior", "All Hail King Julien", "Hank Zipzer", and "DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk."

There will be new preschool shows including "Kody Kapow", and there will be new international shows premiering including "Nowhere Boys", "Little Lunch", and "The Next Step."

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

I was just about to say "Where's Gridman?" on that Crunchyroll streaming thread.
DISH had recent upgrades on the 61.5 orbital slot this early morning. My signal strengths got increased and transponders were moved to another.

How Cartoon Network and TBS moved to other transponders. :P
What I love from the commercial studio Psyop, is the Cricket Wireless critters (known as the Cricketters) in different shapes and colored in Green, Yellow and Blue. So imaginative and cute! :)
Most Europeans here don't know about the old Grinch Christmas special. Even in Portugal.
When Is the Nickelodeon Highlights usually up for December? I Was just wondering...
