Default Who was a fan of PBS Kids' early years?

I was definitely a PBS Kid from probably 2002 to about 2007 or 2008. Then they stopped being good IMO.

I loved the promos, the bumpers, and the P-Pals!!! I also really loved the Teletubbies. Barney, Sesame Street, Dragon Tales, Clifford, Zoboomafoo and Sagwa and I was just a PBS Kid and I miss those memories of watching PBS Kids in the early to late 2000's. I still enjoyed "Martha Speaks" but there's nothing I like right now.

Reading Rainbow and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood were the best of the bunch for me.

Ever since I was a little one, I'd watch Clifford The Big Red Dog, Sesame Street, The Magic School Bus, yes even Barney. I still have an appreciation them but I don't watch them anymore

I just saw this thread. It might be a bit old, but so far I only see replies from people who say they recall PBS programming from the 1990s.
I really would like to find a certain PBS show that was from the 1960s.

Mr Rogers was around back then (I think), Sesame Street started in the very very very late 60s or early 1970s. "Zoom" must have been in the early 70s.
Also "Hodgepodge Lodge." There were certain programs who's name I cannot recall but "Reading Rainbow" sounds familiar.
There used to be certain hosts of children's programs and I think one name
was "Jane B Cheeney." I know there was a TV show which a woman who had a short Buster Brown type haircut talked to the camera telling kids about different things such as how your digestive system works.
I have gone to the library to look at old newspapers with TV listings to see if I can find the name of the show, but I only see that the TV listings of that time (the very late 1960s) just had it mentioned that from about 10:00 AMto about 3:00 PM there is "children's programming" which prevents me from looking up the names of the old educational children's TV shows of that time.

Does anyone have some kind information about those old PBS TV shows of the mid to late 60s to the early 70s?

I know there was a 90s Zoom too that ran till the early 2000s. Loved that one. Also part of my childhood.

Yes to all of those but I don't know if my local PBS station carried The Magic School Bus post-2002.

Yes. Sesame St and Mr. Rogers were both good times.

I was a fan during the 90s and early 2000s. I used to watch PBS when I would get sick and had to stay home from school. This was the only good channel we had for me as a kid to watch when I was growing up in grade school and middle school. I do agree that PBS is not as good now as it was when I was growing up.

I did. It was a good show but it seems to have disappeared completely these days.

I also remember watching Reading Rainbow, Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street, Zoom, and Teletubbies around that time.

Wasn't there also something called PBS Go? It was like a branch of PBS Kids in the mid-late 2000s. I remember watching Arthur and Cyberchase in their after-school blocks.

PBS Kids Go yes. I loved it. Arthur, Postcards from Buster, Cyberchase and Maya & Miguel! And later Fetch, which I also loved!

2000-2006 in particular were great with PBS Kids.

Oh yeah I forgot Fetch! That was a fun show.

And I agree, those years were great.
