The following is a list of programs featured on Noggin, an entertainment brand owned by Nickelodeon. The brand began in 1999 as a cable channel and a website, launched as a joint venture between Nickelodeon and Sesame Workshop.[1][2] At launch, the channel featured three sectors of programming: a main block aimed at pre-teens and teenagers,[3] a morning block for preschoolers, and an "adult retro" block at night.[4] 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.[5][6] 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 aired in the U.S. and UK from 1999 to 2005. In 2009, the Noggin network was replaced by the Nick Jr. channel, but it was relaunched as a streaming service in 2015.[7][8][9] As of 2020, the service is continually updated with new series and clips, both from Noggin's library and other companies.

Streaming service[edit]

Current programming[edit]

In March 2015, Nickelodeon relaunched the Noggin brand as a video-on-demand streaming service, featuring episodes from former Noggin series, current-running Nick Jr. series and newly-acquired shows.[10]

Former TV channel[edit]

The Noggin channel launched on February 2, 1999 and closed on September 27, 2009. It started out mainly aimed at tweens and teenagers, with a few of its programs being 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[edit]

Original series[edit]

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,[12][13] but it continued to co-produce content for Noggin.[14]
