Library lions teach their cubs to read in this acclaimed children's show, which blends puppetry, animation and live action for an audience (ages 4-7) already familiar with its ABCs. The Emmy-winning series won back-to-back honors from the Television Critics Association in 2000 and 2001 for Outstanding Children's Program.
A portly quartet of playful creatures who live and learn in Teletubbyland is the focus of this live-action program developed by former teacher Anne Wood for younger children. The series became an unlikely subject for controversy when, in 1998, Rev. Jerry Falwell criticized it for promoting a 'gay agenda' by having one character carry a bag that resembled a purse. That storm passed quickly, and the show's continued success prompted Wood to create another children's series, 'Boobah.'
