Tickle U



August 22, 2005


September 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 September 2006. 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.
