Top Ten Most Educational Shows of All Time

I believe shows that are aimed at toddlers and babies tend to get a lot of hate. So I decided to create this list to show appreciation to them.

The Top Ten

1 Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Mister Rogers' Neighborhood is an American half-hour children's television series that was created and hosted by namesake Fred Rogers.

Very educational, or at least my dad says that. I was born in 2007 so I wasnt born yet. I have saw episodes though.

I miss Mister Rogers so much! :(

Never heard of this or number 2 Reading Rainbow

"don't worry I'll be back

2 Reading Rainbow Reading Rainbow Reading Rainbow is an American half-hour children's television series that aired on PBS Kids from June 6, 1983, to November 10, 2006, with a total of 155 half-hour episodes spanning over 21 seasons.

Lol Jackanory which finished in 1996 first aired in 1965 in UK it was original story show.

I was just old/young enough to enjoy this show and Star Trek TNG at the same time and realizing the same actor was in both shows blew my little mind!

I assumed Geordi lost his eyesight from reading too much.

Why is PBS even airing this? There was this one episode from the early 00s in which the host goes to a dog bakery to celebrate his pet's birthday, and actually EATS dog food! How unsanitary :(
