NBC Kids is a Saturday morning pre-school television programming block which was launched on July 7, 2012. The block is programmed by the Sprout cable network, and broadcast on NBC. It is also broadcast in Spanish on Telemundo, under the brand MiTelemundo.[1][2][3][4]

The three-hour block features educational series for younger children, meeting the FCC's E/I guidelines and are listed as such.[5][1][2][3][4] Programs broadcast by the NBC Kids block include The Chica Show, Poppy Cat, Noodle and Doodle, Tree Fu Tom, LazyTown, and Astroblast.[1]

Programs broadcast under MiTelemundo include Spanish-dubbed episodes of Barney and Friends, Play with Me Sesame, Raggs, and Super Why! along with the Spanish versions of LazyTown, Jay Jay the Jet Plane, Fireman Sam, and Noodle and Doodle. It is the second Saturday morning block to air HD programming.

NBC, Telemundo and Sprout are all owned by Comcast; as such, NBC Kids and MiTelemundo are currently only the Saturday morning cartoon blocks on U.S. broadcast television which are owned by their parent companies, and not leased out to third-party programmers.
