Tickle U

January 5, 2007

Tickle U was a weekday morning preschool programming block on Cartoon Network and Boomerang. The block premiered on August 22, 2005. The block was cancelled in January 5, 2007 (a week before the television premiere of Ellen's Acres). Tickle U was the first and only preschool programming block featured on Cartoon Network. Tickle U aired Monday through Friday from 9AM-11AM, and at one point, was expanded to 9AM-1PM. 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.
