    I think Universal Kids will be like ABC Kids (If you don’t know, it was a block that was around in 2001 to 2009 that was on ABC Australia which durring the morning, they would air preschool shows, but durring the afternoon, they would air shows that were aimed for older kids).

    Caillou! I am hiding the fact that this show exists from my kids. I can’t believe it is still semi popular.
