History

The Beginning Era (1996-2002)

The channel was launched on 1 November 1996 and programming was aimed for older children and preschoolers. Preschool programming aired in the mornings, while shows for older children aired in the afternoons-evenings. Which is Spanish-dubbed.

The Rainbow Era (2002-2005)

On August 2002, preschool programming began airing around the clock on weekdays, while shows for older children only aired around the clock on weekends.

On January 2003, the channel changed its programming to target mainly preschoolers removing all shows for older children until 5 October 2015 (for only one show Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures).[2]

The Preschool Era (2005-2016)

On March 2005, Doki, the channel's mascot, was introduced.[3] In 2008, a new mascot was introduced, named Mundi. In 2009, newer mascots made its first appearance: Oto, Fico, Anabella, and Gabi.

The New Era (2016-present)

On 1 April 2016, older children programming was returned after a 12-year hiatus for afternoons and evenings while preschool programming continues airing in the mornings.

Live events

  • La Ronda de Discovery Kids:[a] The channel organized live events called La Ronda de Discovery Kids (The Discovery Kids Tour), where "Doki", the channel's mascot, along with characters from the series visited some cities and made performances. The last event with that name was in 2008, however, the channel still organizes events on Latin American cities from time to time. In 2009, there was another similar project called Exploration which dealt with the environment, In 2010, a similar event called En sus marcas, listos, ya (On your marks, get set, go!) was made only in Mexico. In July, August, and September 2012, they were performing Expreso Discovery Kids (Discovery Kids Express) in city of Mexico and Venezuela.[4]
