Honorable Mentions

Title Image Premiere Finale Demographic (Common Sense Media) Status on IMDB/ Why It's Not on the List
Shining Time Station
51v A41RpnL
January 29, 1989 June 11, 1993 3+ 8.2/10 (8.1/10) "This was a surprisingly fresh, talented American interpretation of the British Thomas the Tank Engine!"
The Wiggles
May 7, 1998 November 1, 2013 2+ 5.2/10 (6.5/10) "The actors were charming, and the songs were memorable... even to adults!"
The Upside Down Show
P303952 b v7 aa
October 16, 2006 February 2, 2007 3+ 8.2/10 (8.6/10) "Just a simple good few laughs with a duo of talented actors, who looked like they had a lot of fun with this show and really made it their own thing. The Upside Down Show was imaginative and unique!"
Art Attack
Art Attack

5+ 7.5/10 "A great host with memorable lessons... and just looking at the amazing guy could do with a canvas inspired a lot of young people on lessons in art that carry on today. I'd say a lot of people on DeviantArt wouldn't be as inspired as they are today if not for Art Attack!"
Bill Nye the Science Guy
September 10, 1993 June 20, 1998 7+ 8.5/10 (8.6/10) "Bill loves his science and even today, I found myself really invested in learning what Bill had to say about all sorts of things! From farming to nutrition to dinosaurs to... bones and muscles! His analogies were steady and understandable. Bill Nye helped bring science alive and inspired a lot of kids in science today!"
