Best PBS Kids Shows

The Top Ten

1 Arthur Arthur Arthur is a Canadian/American animated educational television series for children, created by Cookie Jar Group and WGBH for PBS.

Arthur is a good show. The characters have tons of depth and are like able. The plots are well done and the humour is in the right place at the right time. But you know what my favorite thing about this show is? It is really mature. It has dealt with cancer, dyslexia and 9/11 and those were all interesting episodes with smart writing. It doesn't throw random crap at the screen. - Puga

Hey Arthur fans! Let's get Arthur back to number one! That's the way it was before, and that's the way it should be! We Arthur fans shouldn't get thumbs down for liking Arthur! Unlike Sesame Street, which just helps kids get ready for school, Arthur helps kids deal with more important things like cancer and dyslexia! Vote for Arthur! And Sesame Street fans, instead of shoving your opinions down our throats, just make a remix of the list!

Yep. Sesame Street was my childhood, but Arthur is now one of my favorite shows. It's the reason I get bullied in school for watching PBS Kids, along with Wild Kratts. Great job, PBS. - PizzaGuy

Not a really bad show, but don't watch the show if you don't want to get made fun of. I don't watch the show because I'm about 15 years old now, watching better shows like King of the Hill. To let you know, Don't watch this show, unless if you have extremely overprotective parents that don't even let you watch SpongeBob.

Best on PBS

2 Sesame Street Sesame Street Sesame Street is a long-running American children's television series, produced by Sesame Workshop and created by Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett.

Really number 3? No no no no sesame street is number one I don't watch it anymore but its still should be number one who ever voted dragon tales at number one hasn't seen sesame street before cooke monster is a awesome character and so is elmo and if it didn't make first then people are just dumb really guys arthur before sesame street come on now lets use are brains for a second and think ss nation my brotha its kj and I will always love sesame street till the day I die any ways that's all I wanted to say.

Me Abby and All my Teachers Love it and its Way Better than Barney

Sesame Street deserves a season 46 for being the best show on PBS kids!

This teaches kids about solving problems,science,math,counting,letters,self control, listening to directions, social studies around the world, asking for help and This is the number 1 educational show. Pay attention to the word for the day!

3 Wild Kratts Wild Kratts Wild Kratts is an American-Canadian educational children's animated series created by Chris and Martin Kratt.

Did you know the kratt brothers are REAL people? Yep. Why are superwhy, barney, oh I don't like arthur either BARNEY IS THE WORST! Come on people! This is actually educational! I mean, I still learn from this... ( I admit it ok? Its embarrassing! ) it teaches you about animals, plus really funny! An adult could watch it and learn, at least its in front of wordgirl UGH SHE GETS ON MY NERVES! YOU can't JUST BE A SUPERHERO AND KEEP IT SECRET, JUST FIGHTING WITH WORDS! AND YOUR TELLING THE EVIL PEOPLE THE SECRETS THAT EVERYBODY KNOWS! AND, AND, AND, UGH YOU FIGHT PEOPLE SO DUMB THAT I COULD BEAT WITH MY SKILLS INSTEAD OF SUPERPOWERS OR WEAPONS! Ugh sorry shes just horrible. Anyway! This should be higher up because you know, animals aren't as creepy as they seem and wild kratts seem to prove that!

This show is amazing! I can watch it with my kids anywhere at anytime by either watching it on television or on computer. We can learn about any animals from different countries and it's also really funny because of adventure comedy. The characters are very friendly and very helpful. Creature powers are awesome and epic for having super powers of any animals and very useful to fight against villains in the show. This show is really worth both the education and entertainment for anyone!

My two sons absolutely love Wild Kratts. After we discovered this show, they named each other Martin and Chris, and it helped them to become better brothers. Also, they learnt so much about different animals and different countries. Kids and parents dream come true show! We hope there will be more episodes:-))

Me and my sister LOVE this show its one of the best things that happened to us its just so informative it helps us learn even though were getting bigger its still our #1 favorite like who dent like the wild kratts like why is it not in #1 WHY? Even though me and my sister will never stop loving this show it teaches kids a lot about animals I didn't even know half of these animals when I was in my childhood.

4 Curious George Curious George Curious George is an American animated television series based on the children's book series of the same name which features Jeff Bennett as the voice of The Man with the Yellow Hat.

It's annoying sometimes, but overall a great show!

My brother loves this show so much since he loves monkeys.It's so good and funny.But I really hate Bill so much.He thinks George is a "city kid".Gosh he's not a kid.he's A MONKEY

I'm 12 and still watch it!

I still sometimes watch it

5 Mister Rogers Neighborhood Mister Rogers Neighborhood

Here's something that a lot of you people don't know. Fred didn't only act in this show. He also wrote the scripts, he wrote the music, and did the Neighborhood of Make Believe Puppuets. And something that I find interesting is that he can appeal not just to little kids and babies. But to people of all ages. Heck, I had barely even heard of this show when I was little, but when I was in 5th grade, I watched it on Saturday mornings because the PBS station in the city that I live in broadcasted it on Saturdays, and I enjoyed it. How he appealed to so many kids, I'll never guess, but he was the '80's version of Barney in my eyes (in the respect that all the little kids loved him, not the stupidity level). Thumbs up if you have ever been enchanted by Fred Rogers - greatesttop10s

As kids, my brother and I never wanted to miss an episode of Mister Rogers', even if it was one we'd seen before. We were throughly entertained, but learned so much. In a world full of educational toys ready to teach even one years their ABCs, it was important that someone taught us about our emotions/feelings and how to handle them. We all had a friend in Mister Rogers.

That Show Was My Favorite PBS Kids Show of All Time

Mister Rogers was such a great role model, who always respected his viewers/neighbors. - thomwim

6 Cyberchase Cyberchase Cyberchase is an American–Canadian animated television series on PBS Kids. The series focuses around three Earth kids, Jackie, Matt, and Inez, who are brought into Cyberspace, a digital universe, to protect it from the evil Hacker. Cyberchase was created by Thirteen. It was first shown on WNET as ...read more.

I understood math thanks to this show, and it still teaches me even today. It even shows you how to apply that math in nature and pretty much everyday life, and if you don't know how it will help you, you got those funny For Real segments to give you an example. Cyberchase is pretty much the only PBS Kids show that I still watch, and it still airs new episodes, even if they take a long time. Despite it's simple math, you will still learn because it sometimes shows subjects you either forgot or didn't learn to apply well. And not just the educational part is awesome, the adventure is so much fun, and expect to have a great time with the characters, where even the secondary ones manage to get major development once in a while.

Cyberchase is the best show ever made! I didn't hear about it until season 8 was premiering, because I was living in Florida when the series first premiered, and I don't get the show in Florida. But now that I love in New York, where they do air it, I can use it anytime I need to study for math. Oh, and it was never cancelled after season 8. Season 9 premiered with 3 new episodes from November 4th to 6th in 2013, followed by the Cyberchase movie in April of 2014. It also recently aired season 10 from November 9th to 13th in 2015. So there's that, it's still running new episodes, and I rely on it when I need to study for math.

This is supposed to be number 1, not Sesame Street, Sesame Street has no god visuals or plot, just talking, shaking and yapping, but the good part is that there's lessons and things to teach, Cyberchase had everything a kid could love. - nelsonerico6

It looks Australian.

7 Dragon Tales Dragon Tales Dragon Tales is a Canadian-American animated pre-school fantasy adventure children's television series created by Jim Coane and Ron Rodecker and developed by Coane, Wesley Eure, Jeffrey Scott, Cliff Ruby and Elana Lesser.

I used to watch this show when I was little and it is good for kids. The only character that is bad sometimes is max because he talks a lot. It's sad that this show doesn't make episodes anymore and I don't see dragon tales repeated episodes that much.

This show was very good I used to watch it a lot when I was little I think its still on early in the morning but I just don't see it anymore

Who put this under best PBS Kids shows. THIS SHOW SHOULD BE THROWN IN A VOLCANO AND DIE FOREVER. It is such a bad example for kids. Max always runs around and gets mad for no apparent reason, and he never listens. Emmy always cries over the smallest things such as losing a game. Ord is always eating all the time and that's how he is so fat. Zak and Wheezie are extremely mean and are always arguing over little situations. Parents, never let your kids watch Dragon Tales. It will make YOUR children get mad for no reason, not listen, cry and argue over small things, make them fat, and behave mean around everyone. OH and my 8 year old friend and her 4 year old cousin still love watching this dumbass show.

This was a great show! The characters have great personalities! The animation is beautiful! And the music is really well done! I use to watch this show a lot.

8 Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, sometimes shortened as Fetch!, is an American animated television series that was on PBS Kids.

It should be in the top 10 because it not only teaches kids science but also how a points system works which is god if they are nascar fans because as they compile points throughout the season they work towards the honor of grand champion. IT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN CANCELLED! - greatesttop10s

THIS SHOW SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN CANCELLED!

I wish it wasn't cancelled either. The reason that it was cancelled was due to a lack of funding. - railfan99

I love this show and I hate children's shows. This, Ben and Holly, and Lazy Town are baby shows that I like. But sadly in 2014 a dumb reboot online about internet safety was cringe. And the new one is dumb. Now Ruff cares about himself more than the kids. And on the 24/7 block it comes on at 5 AM who stays up till 5 just to watch a great baby show- Carolina Panthers/Nirvana fan.

I watched the reboot. It was actually good. - Drawbox

9 Clifford the Big Red Dog Clifford the Big Red Dog Clifford the Big Red Dog is an American-British educational animated children's television series, based upon Norman Bridwell's children's book series of the same name. Produced by Scholastic Productions, it originally aired on PBS Kids from September 4, 2000 to February 25, 2003.

I used to watch this show a lot till I turned 7 or 8. I think there is nothing wrong with this show. My favorite character is Mac. The spinoff Clifford's puppy days was good but not as good as Clifford the big red dog. It's sad that this show was cancelled in 2003. It was cancelled because the person who played Clifford was going to die during that time. They still show this show usually when pbs kids ends for each day during the week.

Who wouldn't like Clifford the big red dog! Clifford is so loveable! - Cool7

Just like they say in the theme song, "I love Clifford the big red dog" - Cool7

10 Odd squad Odd squad Odd Squad is a Canadian/American children's live action television series that premiered on TVOKids in Canada and PBS Kids in the United States on November 26, 2014, both on the same day.

I was watching T.V. with my little cousin, and Odd squad came on. I watched some of it with him, and I was REALLY impressed by how good this show was. The show ingenuously teaches math concepts that I didn't think kids could comprehend, but also mixes it in with comedy and smart writing that even adults will get a chuckle out of. Show it to your kids, it's good stuff. - Jackamalio

I'm kinda sad about the changing characters of the new season I wish they brought back the old characters

ODD SQUAD IS THE WORST PBS KIDS SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN TAKE THIS OFF THIS LIST RIGHT NOW. THIS SHOW IS WORSE THAN CAILLOU AND BARNEY AND FRIENDS. THE PEOPLE THAT HATE BARNEY that's FINE, I'M SORRY FOR LIKING CAILLOU AND BARNEY. AT LEAST BARNEY DOESN'T WHINE LIKE CAILLOU. I LOVE BARNEY SOMETIMES BECAUSE I'M 22 YEARS OLD AND BARNEY WAS MY CHILDHOOD. I KNOW WERE TOO OLD TO WATCH THESE SHOWS BUT I STILL LIKE THEM

Funny, action filled, and just explodes your imagination

13 Thomas and Friends Thomas and Friends

I used to watch this show when I was little and I had Thomas and friends toys. My favorite character is James the red engine. My favorite movie was Thomas and the magical railroad. My favorite part in that movie was when diesel 10 fell of the bridge he deserves it for hating Thomas and his friends. This show also has very good ratings so this show shouldn't get cancelled.

I love Thomas and friends! I don't care how old I have to be to watch it!

How is this so low? This is the best kids show ever! It taught me how to count! - tacobell

The show is now on Nick Jr, The first Thomas thing that they aired was The Adventure Begins. - ethan2226

The series is produced by Wind Dancer Films and Snee Oosh, Inc. in cooperation with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The show is aimed ...read more.

This show deserves to be in the Top Ten, it's good to know and realize that PBS Kids has finally made something good for once after all those years, when there were no good shows. First of all, There's a good plot. Also there's no laugh track. The quality is also very good and watchable, unlike the quality of the other shows, which seem bad in comparison, also the characters are nice in both looks, words and actions, yet this show also has good morals, and it also has an improvement method in the acting that doesn't happen in the other shows in this era. And this is the first time in years that PBS Kids has finally made a show that drew millions of viewers that are actually fans, which makes this show the most successful Nick show in a long time, and it became such a big hit that they're making a one hour special of it soon, and it better be a good one.

This show is so underrated, you guys who watch this show should know that, for a long time, since PBS Kids has been making really bad shows in the modern years, for the cartoon brand, Nickelodeon has unleashed a new generation in the good side of the live-action brand, and that generation began in February 15, 2016 with Ready Jet Go, and later in the year, PBS Kids has refreshened it's cartoon and live action content with Wild Kratts, Odd Squad, and Nature Cat, the best shows on PBS Kids since 2009, and since Arthur and Sesame Street got messed up years ago, The only four good shows on PBS Kids nowadays are Ready Jet Go and Wild Kratts and Nature Cat and Odd Squad, it's also no doubt that those shows are the last good shows on PBS

The show is a rare gem in the realm of modern day children's cartoons. It is very in-depth, educational, and informative about space, astronomy, science, technology, and teaches great morals in every episode about friendship and teamwork. It has unique and detailed animation, top-notch songs, zany humor, likable, relatable, and deep characters, and just about the best of literally anything in a cartoon targeted at the under-fives. It has plot and lore, real drama, suspense, and who knows what else, but they keep it appropriate for children. It's also getting a film where Sean and Sydney go to Bortron 7 with the Propulsion family! It's also getting a second season, and will roll out tons of merchandise. Space Explorers (ready jet go fans), get ready to ready jet GO!

This and Thomas and Friends are both the best shows. - Eraser

16 WordGirl WordGirl WordGirl is an American children’s animated television series produced by the Soup2Nuts animation unit of Scholastic Entertainment for PBS Kids.

This show has always been so useful for me! I discovered so many new vocabulary words from when I was 8 (at the time the show started airing) up until I was 12 or 13! And I STILL find a few new vocabulary words that I may have heard of, but seldom use because I don't know the complete definitions of them. I don't understand why this show had to end, it was so well though out and put together!

This show is by far the most AWESOME! Personally, it give kids a relatable kid hero to look up too. Plus, it adds humor for the whole family. It is an AMAZING show!

It was not so suitable for children because in one episode. She tried liking on someone and and wanted to make out with her and make love.

It rips off Superman. - Drawbox

17 Martha Speaks Martha Speaks Martha Speaks is an American-Canadian children's animated television series based on the 1992 children's book of the same name by Susan Meddaugh, about a talking dog named Martha (voiced by Tabitha St.

I think this and Arthur are one of the greatest PBS Kids shows of all time. Except I think it's kind of animal-racist that Martha keeps saying she hates cats. And I think Helen is more of a robot than an actual human being at times. AND I wish the voices were the same still, (although TD and Milo's voice changes were understandable because their voices were getting deeper) but other than that the show is great and teaches kids words.

The cat thing is normal, since Martha's a dog. Didn't you realize that? - TheRedstoneWiz

I don't really hate this show, it was actually pretty good. But martha is the real reason the show got cancelled. Other than her fat and super ugly mouth, the show isn't bad.

This show is funny and entertaining and I think it should be in the top 10.

I used to like the show, and it still is good. I am 12 and it is ok. I just hate Martha because she is annoying and fat and makes fun of cats. But other than that, the show was good.

This show does not belong here. This is the worst show ever, I watched one episode and was scared to death. Although I am not now and haven't been for 9 years (since I was 3), I will never watch that show again no matter how much people encourage me. And when I have kids I will not let them watch that purple trash pile's show

This is the worst show ever. The last person who played Barney is high on drugs that is the reason it was cancelled in 2010. Barney was at least not as bad when bob west was Barney. The person who played BJ was bossy on this show. The person who played baby bop was a cry baby. This show is also bad because the character named Rift was only in 3 episodes. This is one of the worst shows of my early childhood besides teletubbies and tiny planets.

Barney should not be on this list. It is one of the worst shows like ever. It teaches kids that it is OK to steel, dinosaurs are friendly and you should give it a hug if you see one and always hug strangers. - EpicJake

But I suggest for those who are scared of "And the clown jumped over the moon! " and the Radical Sheep Productions and Owl Communications logos, don't watch it at night! You'll get bad dreams about it, like I did when I was young. Or even better, turn it off or changed the channel once the credits start!

A great, funny, educational show. Love the Kratts!

I never saw Kratts' creatures, but I am sure it's a great show!

Haven't heard of this show before, but it's probably a good show - IceFoxPlayz

Kratts' Creatures and Wild Kratts are the best.

Great show for older kids when there were really no other shows for tweens.

I used to love watching this show back in the 70's.

Zoom is better than Arthur - EpicJake

Pokemon is not on PBS. Was iron here in the late 90's or something?

First of all, Pokemon sucks, as well as every other anime. Second of all, Pokemon actually got released a year AFTER Arthur did. Pokemon was released in 1997. Arthur was released in 1996.

Hey! Pokemon is GREAT You are just MAD because Pokemon was made ONE YEAR BEFORE ARTHUR!

Pokemon isn't on PBS. Not sure whats worse: Barney or Serena - Lunala
