Tickle U



August 22, 2005


January 2006

Tickle U was a weekday morning preschool programming block on Cartoon Network (and briefly Boomerang). The block premiered on August 22, 2005 and ended sometime near January 2006. Tickle U was the second preschool programming block featured on Cartoon Network, after Small World. Tickle U aired Monday through Friday from 9AM-11AM. The block was hosted by the block's mascots Pipoca (voiced by Ariel Winter) and Henderson (voiced by Tom Kenny, who's done a plethora of other animated characters' voices such as SpongeBob, The Mayor of Townsville, Ice King, and Quantum Ray). The block also notably featured an innovative "Mommy Bar" with helpful information about programming and child care. Sometime near January 2006, the block and its hosts were removed, though the shows continued to air on Cartoon Network. The promos for the shows featured on the block had Tickle U branding, along with Pipoca and Henderson, removed and were replaced by shots of the main view of the City of Townsville from The Powerpuff Girls.
