I know this is slightly OT - shirt-tail Disney related through Jim Henson.

I just wanted to say that my DD found the Sid the Science Kid website on PBSKids last week and it premiered on PBS here this week - she is hooked like a fish! It is an adorable show and she has learned a TON from it already. It has also piqued her interest in scientific investigation in general. It's on here twice a day (same episode both times) - 8:30 am and 5:00 pm (central time). I have to admit, I have enjoyed it too!

My two boys love this show as well. We have watched the shows multiple times (thanks to DVR)! The boys really like to hear Sid singing. :)

PBSKids dot org is the site for the kids games - my DD has learned sign language from Arthur, science from Sid, and so much more - it's the only place she's allowed to go online and I think it's pretty great!

I saw this. Not the show, but the taping of the show. On the Backstage Magic tour offered by Adventures by Disney, one of the things offered is a studio tour of the Jim Henson Company. And when we were there, we got to see a little bit of how they filmed the show.

I"m glad to see the show is finally on the air, because they had to put in alot of work for just a few seconds of film.

Love it, love it, love it at our house!

Of course when our pumpkin was out on our front step a little longer than it should have, we had to really investigate it rather than just get the thing to the compost plie stat! :rotfl2:

Really great show, though - I hope it does well.

Our kids love the show too -- but I can't help but wonder every time I see it how much a school like that costs!!!

My DD4 loves the songs. "I love my mom, my mom is cool...". The repetitiveness is great!!

Sid the Science Kid is a huge hit at our house. DS loves it. He has been singing a song about charts for days. He also calls himself an "American Science Kid".
