Noggin's original logo

The following is a list of programs featured on Noggin. The brand launched in 1999 as a joint venture between MTV Networks (owners of Nickelodeon) and Sesame Workshop.[1] At first, the Noggin channel featured three sectors of programming: a main block aimed at pre-teens and teenagers,[2] a morning block for preschoolers, and a "retro" block at night.[3] In 2002, Sesame Workshop sold its stake in Noggin to Nickelodeon, but it continued to co-produce content for the brand. In the same year, Noggin discarded its retro block and extended its preschool and teen blocks to last 12 hours each per day.[4][5] The older-skewing shows that made up Noggin's original tween and teen lineup aired exclusively during the teen block, now retitled "The N."

Programming blocks based on Noggin have aired in the U.S. and UK. In 2009, the Noggin network was replaced by the Nick Jr. channel, but Noggin was relaunched as a streaming app in 2015.[6][7][8] As of 2022, the service is continually updated with new series and clips, both from Noggin's library and other companies.

1999 TV channel

The Noggin channel launched on February 2, 1999 and closed on September 28, 2009. It started out mainly aimed at tweens and teenagers, with a few of its morning programs aimed at younger children. From April 1, 2002 onward, the channel was divided into two programming blocks: a daytime block for young children and a nighttime block, called The N, for tweens and teenagers. Several shows that had previously aired during Noggin's daytime block, such as A Walk in Your Shoes and Sponk!, aired exclusively during The N from April 2002 onward.

Daytime block

Original series

Nickelodeon and Sesame Workshop created a company, Noggin LLC, to produce original content for their network in 1999. In 2002, Sesame Workshop sold its stake in Noggin LLC to Nickelodeon,[9][10] but it continued to co-produce content for Noggin.[11]
