The Top Ten

1 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.

It is better even than shin chan, shin chan is already a one that really make everything, I count Sesame Street we’re bad but got good for the kids like every other good kids franchise.

How is the longest running educational kids show with the most variety not at the top?

Should be number 1!
It has great messages, teaches good lessons and it's super cute!

It should be at 1 not blues clues although I still like blues clues

2 Blue's Clues Blue's Clues is an American children's television series that premiered on Nickelodeon in 1996. Producers Angela Santomero, Todd Kessler, and Traci Paige Johnson combined concepts from child development and early-childhood education with innovative animation and production techniques that helped their ...read more.

I think that this show is very awesome because I grew up with it, and I think that it is very useful for little children. I also like Steve/Joe/Kevin's listening skills because they are very funny. I hope it gets revived for a 7th season sometime in the future.

Hallelujah someone has actually remembered the actual presenter on the UK version, it did come from America but had different versions.

I loved show when I was little I also had a blue clues bed

This and Sesame Street are tied for me!

Teaches children about weather, dinosaurs

I remember watching this a few times as a kid

4 Peg+Cat

This show is educational. Peg sings while solving each problem and teaches little kids math skills. I wish this were around when I was a little kid.

5 Bill Nye The Science Guy

I remember enjoying the theme song as a kid, and his science videos were interesting to watch in school

6 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2019) is an American preschool educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner in which Dora goes on adventures with her friend, a monkey named Boots.

It teaches you Spanish, how to count in Spanish, and the characters are appropriate (yes they are creepy though).

Teaches you Spanish.

7 The VeggieTales Show VeggieTales is an American series of direct-to-video children's computer animated films created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki featuring antropomorphic fruits and vegetables in stories conveying moral themes based on Christianity

Veggie tales is amazing! Unlike these retarded shows like My little pony, caillou, Dora and peppa pig, this show is actually educational

I'm sick! *cough cough* *sniff sniff*

Now THIS is something kids SHOULD watch

Underrated show!

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

This show still makes me laugh today, this show never gets old

The first few episodes taught us life lessons, like not to be funny for friends or never to give up. Not the stupid stuff the new episodes give.

I loved this show!

The stories from the kids maybe. But not the Teletubbies themselves because they are just silly or the sun because the sun is just a baby who either laughs or cries.

21 Where Are We Going?
22 Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Mister Rogers' Neighborhood is an American half-hour children's television series that was created and hosted by namesake Fred Rogers.

How is this not #1? This man devoted his life and career primarily to help children grow in both maturity and understanding of love and the world around them. He always made sure to remind each of his viewers that they are special just for who they are. The whole down- to-Earth simplicity of the show proves that you don’t need ginormous special effects or crazy bizarre characters to captivate your young audience. Just a real world setting and a friendly guy who wants to welcome you to his neighborhood.

This classic show teaches children how to properly manage their emotions. In some episodes, Mister Rogers would visit a factory to see how things are made or invite a guest star to talk about their profession.
