Post I think Universal should add a Sprout attraction

I know I'm not much into Universal Orlando, but I just had this idea for an attraction at USF that would (1) appeal to the little folks, (2) be their answer to the Disney Junior show at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and (3) would be a perfect bit of synergy with Universal's parent company.

I'm sure those of you who have little ones are familiar with the PBS Kids Sprout channel on cable. I know USF already has a Nickelodeon attraction, and Dora the Explorer is one of the park's roaming characters. However, since NBCUniversal is a part owner of Sprout, the park should develop perhaps a live show incorporating some of their material. I can imagine something patterened after THE SUNNY SIDE UP SHOW, with a live performer and Chica the Chicken(either as a puppet or an animitronic). One drawback to this idea is how to recreate THE GOOD NIGHT SHOW(for one thing, where would they find someone who looks like Nina, and it seems silly to do the "good night" bit with Star during the day).

Oh, and they have to have a meet-and-greet Chica there too.

So do you think Sprout would be a good addition to USF?

no idea what a Sprout is......

UO doesn't necessarily duplicate what the motherland parks have.

I believe that the entire kiddie area at USF will be redone once the new London area is complete. I kinda get the feeling though that they will be expanding it with more of the Sponge Bob stuff. Perhaps they can do a little Sprout there.

Now that I think of it, Universal doesn't really need to do a Sprout attraction now.(Besides, USF already has a Barney show.) Sprout is occasionally involved in special events at Sesame Place near Philly.(Sesame Workshop also owns a piece of Sprout.) For example, this weekend SP has an event called "Pajama Party Weekend", and Nina and Star are going to be there to do a pre-show re-creation of THE GOOD NIGHT SHOW prior to the Elmo holiday show.

I still hope that Sprout will have a presence at Universal.
