22 Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat

Nice show with lovable characters!, should be much higher on the list

They really need to bring this show back.

This show should be number 1 on the list imao, it teaches people about the world of China and seems very educational.

I used to draw a comic book about this show years ago when I was in elementary school

23 Barney and Friends Barney and Friends Barney & Friends is an American children's television series aimed at children from ages 1 to 8, created by Sheryl Leach and produced by HIT Entertainment. It premiered on PBS on April 6, 1992. The series features the title character Barney, a purple anthropomorphic tyrannosaurus rex who conveys educational more.

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

Cool7, you like a dinosaur that took drugs. You're the one who is so wrong - EpicJake

Barney and Friends?! Why is this on here?! More like Fartney and Enemies or Bully and Freaks!

24 The Big Comfy Couch The Big Comfy Couch

I loved this show, I used to do the clock rug stretch all the time. And stuff my toys under the cushions of my own couch whenever I saw the Ten-Second-Tidy! 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!

Never heard of it but it sounded retarded. What else The Big Table? Or The Tiny Pillow?!

The Celtic Show collected a spectacular trifecta this week He defended thw World Greatest T.V. show Champion against Animalia at Night of Shows and the scored victories in tag team action on pbs and pbs kids plus now that the song is legal once more who would dare step in sid the science kid way as he continues to now don the

The hell... This show is awful Its about the same plot should be called Sid the Idiotic Kid or Crappy Kid or Stupid kid

I love this show! It teaches the cute little kids about science. Anyone who hates this should get a new brain.

27 Zoboomafoo Zoboomafoo Zoboomafoo is an American/Canadian zoological children's television series that originally aired from January 25, 1998 to November 21, 2001. It is still currently shown in syndication and was regularly shown on Sprout until 2011. A total of 65 episodes were aired.

I used to watch it, I liked it. Now, It still isn't too bad, but Its not worth watching full episodes all the time anymore. Its now one of the few shows I actually enjoy looking back at, unlike Caillou and Barney.

I remember my mom saying this was the only show we watched on PBS when we were kids that she actually enjoyed.

This show is so sweet and funny. I love Zoboomafoo! Sometimes I feel like crying watching this show,only because of nostalgia though. The show itself is not sad, rather entertaining. - cosmo

I liked this show as a kid. It was so good. - Powerfulgirl10

30 Dinosaur Train Dinosaur Train Dinosaur Train is an American/Canadian/Singaporean children's animated series created by Craig Bartlett, who also created Hey Arnold!. The series features a curious young Tyrannosaurus rex named Buddy who, together with his adopted Pteranodon family, takes the Dinosaur Train to explore his time period, more.

DON IS STUPID! I mean, WHY does he think Dad is hiding under a tiny rock when he is like 20 times bigger than it? Why does Don take a nap all the time? He snores very loud. I like Shiny, Tiny and Buddy, but Don... is a clumsy loser.

When I was 11 the class had to watch this. Wasn't actually bad, I'll admit. The dinosaurs learnt about stars or whatever. Lol. Other than that, never seen this.

This show has good animation. I don't know why people hate it.

Hey childhood! There you are! - PeeledBanana

31 Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks

Never heard of it but the name of the pig and the first word in the title of this show sounds like a retard named the show and it sounds retarded

Piggley taught children morals and consequences of life. It was not heavy but well balance in its offering of advice and information. Love the sheep, they just appeared in cameo splender. Thanks for the memories WES a Grandpa

I think that PBS kids forgot about this show.

I've seen this one before. It's about a pig and a cow and a bunch of animals or whatever.

32 Shining Time Station Shining Time Station

The best show to feature Thomas the tank engine and severely underestimated to be ranked this far down.

Good theme song and beautiful art for the closing

Best PBS show for kids. Need reruns back on!

I feel like it might be splitting the vote with Thomas and Friends...

In the original series, Bob appears in a stop motion animated programme as a building contractor, specialising in masonry, along with his colleague Wendy, various neighbours and friends, and their gang of anthropomorphised more.

Memories. Until they introduced new models.

You forgot to put Bob the builder on the list

LOL, doesn't seem to exist though. However I do remember a baby show called Small Potatoes it's about dumb potatoes singing for 5 minutes. Yep not kidding. :/ - Lunala

Is this really a show about a potato? - SheepBuggy

What? This show doesn't exist! - RalphBob


35 SciGirls

This show is actually really good. It has some good live action shots. Kids are going to like it.

Worst show *yawns* I would rather watch a teacher talk about science or any boring subject for 10 hours than that show!

I like this show
