Noggin is now Nick Jr. – I'm not thrilled with the name change but I am psyched that they kept the whimsical & imaginative tweener graphics and branding that I have always adored. The design is eclectic and clever. While there is plenty not to love, there is nothing as bad as Barney on this commercial-less channel. I am especially fond of the Noggin song, Everywhere I go, that says:


Days are the sunniest
Jokes are the funniest
Rabbits are the bunny-est
Hives are the honey-est
Elephants the ton-iest
Troubles - they're the none-iest     Everywhere I go!

Straws are the bend-iest
Time is the spend-iest
Cards are the send-iest
Books are the lend-iest
Fun's the pretend-iest
Friends are the friend-iest     Everywhere I go!

Berries are the fruit-iest
Shoes are the boot-iest
Puppies are the cute-iest
Treasure is the loot-iest
Teams are the root-iest
Horns are the toot-iest     Everywhere I go!

Birds are the tweet-iest
Candy is the sweet-iest
Socks are the feet-iest
Tricks are the treat-iest
Drums are the beat-iest
Lunch is the eat-iest        Everywhere I go!

Flowers are the smelliest
Jams are jelly-est
Rain's the umbrell-iest
Tales are the tell-iest
Wishing is the well-iest
Buttons are the belly-est     Everywhere I go!

Skies are the blue-iest
Cows are the moo-iest
Gum is the chewiest
Ghosts are the boo-iest
Goo is the gooey-est
You can be your you-iest       Everywhere I go!

There is a character on Wow Wow Wubbzy that has a southern accent and I love Yo! Gabba Gabba with its lo-fi, almost Sesame Street sev feel, it's nearly nostalgic. I think Ellen DeGeneres should be their next guest, she would come up with a good dancy-dance. Though I said I never would use the "electronic babysitter" – I must admit I do from time to time. I mean, It's like pre-school on TV!
