New KLRU Kids Lineup Starts Sept. 1

Starting on Wednesday, September 1, KLRU Kids daily lineup will change. In addition to some shows changing time slots, we’re adding an extra show on Saturday mornings making kids shows go from 5 to 10 a.m. And we’re very excited to be bringing you a brand new series from PBS called The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That.

Voiced by award-winning actor Martin Short, Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat guides friends Sally and Nick – with a little help from the Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2 – on fun-filled adventures where they make natural-science discoveries, from how bees make honey to why owls sleep during the day. The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That will join the line up on Labor Day, Sept. 6.

Unfortunately we are also loosing one KLRU Kid favorite from the lineup. Since its premiere in 1999, Dragon Tales has helped build children’s social emotional skills, as well as supporting a music and cultural diversity curriculum. Production of new episodes concluded in the third season, in 2005. As broadcast and web rights are set to expire, PBS will no longer be able to show episodes of Dragon Tales or serve web video and game content after August 2010.
