Children's programming on Telemundo

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Children's programming has played a part in Telemundo's programming since its initial roots in television. This article outlines the history of children's television programming on Telemundo including the various blocks and notable programs that have aired throughout the television network's history.


Telemunequitos (1990-1998)

In 1990, Telemundo launched a weekday and weekend morning programming block as Telemunequitos, which was joint venture with Warner Bros. Cartoons. Programming aired with Spanish-dubbed in United States and Puerto Rico (WKAQ-TV), across the show will be including Looney Tunes, as well as some Hanna-Barbara animated cartoon shows. In Puerto Rico, the block consisted of other block along with Telecómicas, Teatrimundo (The Flintstones) and Telemundo Infantil (Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures) are still continued to be aired sporadically on weekday morning block, which is weekend morning block series in the other shows are Nubeluz. In United States, Telemunequitos and Telemundo Infantil are discontinued in 1998. The following week on Monday to Friday morning block, Nickelodeon en Telemundo debuted. The network converted its children’s programming every weekday mornings until 2000.

Telemundo Infantil (1995-1998)

In September 16, 1995, Telemundo launched a Saturday morning program block, Telemundo Infantil ("Telemundo Kids"), which was developed via input from viewers on what they wanted to be featured in a children's show.

Nickelodeon en Telemundo (1998–2001)

On September 15, 1998, Telemundo entered into a programming agreement with Nickelodeon to carry the cable channel's programming as part of a morning children's program block, "Nickelodeon en Telemundo" ("Nickelodeon on Telemundo"). The block, which debuted on November 9, 1998 and was considered a sub-block of Telemundo Infantil, consisted of Spanish dubs of Nickelodeon's animated series aimed at older children and preschool-oriented programs aired by the channel's Nick Jr. block (such as Rugrats, Doug, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Hey Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life, Blue's Clues and Dora the Explorer). The block ran on weekday mornings until September 5, 2000, when it was relegated to Saturday and Sunday mornings in order to make room for Hoy En El Mundo (lit. "Today in the World" or "In the World Today"). Nickelodeon's contract with Telemundo ended in November 2001, following the network's acquisition by NBC; Rugrats, All Grown Up!, Dora the Explorer and Hey Arnold! continued to be aired sporadically for a few years afterward beginning September 18, 2004.[1][2]

Telemundo Kids (2001–2006)

After Nickelodeon en Telemundo was discontinued, Telemundo eventually launched a weekend morning block that turned out to be a revival of the "Telemundo Kids” block debuted on October 6, 2001, but branded differently from the block Telemundo Infantil from 1995 to 1998. The block consisted of Spanish dubs of various Sony Pictures Television and later Nickelodeon (although, as aforesaid, the network's Telemundo programming contract ended after the NBC acquisition) and Canadian shows including Jackie Chan Adventures, Dragon Tales, Men in Black: The Series, Max Steel, Dragon Ball Z, Wimzie's House, Monster by Mistake, Nini's Treehouse, Nico, Bizbirije, Toonimals, Las Tres Mellizas, Agua Viva, Juana la Iguana, Rugrats, All Grown Up!, Hey Arnold!, Dora the Explorer and Jacob Two-Two. Following the sale of Telemundo to NBC in 2001 and the CBS/Viacom split in early 2006, the block was discontinued September 3, 2006. However, Jacob Two-Two carried over to the block’s direct successor Qubo, which premiered the following week.[3]

Qubo on NBC/Telemundo (2006–2012)

In May 2006, NBCUniversal and Ion Media Networks announced plans to form Qubo, a joint venture in conjunction with Scholastic Corporation, Classic Media and Corus Entertainment subsidiary Nelvana. The multi-platform programming endeavor, aimed at children between 4 and 8 years of age, would comprise children's program blocks airing on NBC, Spanish-language sister network Telemundo and Ion Media's i: Independent Television (now Ion Television), as well as a 24-hour digital multicast channel on i's owned-and-operated stations (alternatively known as Qubo Channel), video on demand services and a branded website. The reasoning why the name "qubo" was chosen for the endeavor, or why its logo is a cube, has not been publicly explained by any of the partners, although general manager Rick Rodriguez stated in an interview with Multichannel News that the name was intended to be something that sounded fun, and be a brand that could easily be uniformally used in English and Spanish.[4][5]

MiTelemundo (2012–2017)

On March 28, 2012, NBC announced that the three-hour children's programming time period allocated by the network on Saturday mornings would be taken over by Sprout (which had become a sister television property to NBC following parent company NBCUniversal's 2010 majority purchase by Comcast; NBC later took full ownership of the network, whose owners previously included PBS, Sesame Workshop and HIT Entertainment) and launch a new Saturday morning block called NBC Kids, which was aimed at preschoolers and grade school-aged children ages 2 to 9.[6][7] Sprout also produced a Spanish-language sister block for Telemundo known as MiTelemundo.

MiTelemundo debuted on July 7, 2012, one week after the Qubo block ended its run on both NBC and Telemundo on June 30 (which left Ion Television (and later Ion Plus) as the only network to retain a Qubo-branded children's block up until the closure of the Qubo Channel on February 28, 2021, as the E.W. Scripps Company is now the owner of Ion Media, which they acquired on January 7, 2021).[8]

MiTelemundo (Litton Entertainment) (2018–present)

On February 24, 2016 and March 1, 2016, NBC and Telemundo announced that they would lease their Saturday morning lineups to Litton Entertainment, The More You Know beginning October 2016 and January 2018, respectively.[9] Named after NBC's series of public service campaigns, the three-hour Saturday morning block is programmed by Litton Entertainment, and features live-action programming aimed at teens, all of which is dubbed in Spanish.[10][11] Despite the change of programming, it did not change the name of the block, which remains as MiTelemundo.


Schedule issues

Due to regulations defined by the Children's Television Act that require stations to carry E/I compliant programming for three hours each week at any time between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time, some Telemundo stations may defer certain programs aired within its Saturday morning block to Sunday daytime or earlier Saturday morning slots, or (in the case of affiliates in the Western United States) Saturday afternoons as makegoods to comply with the CTA regulations.
