There's no shortage of competition when it comes to national morning

shows for adults that offer up the usual helping of news and lifestyle

Sep 19, 2007, 01:00 ET from PBS KIDS SPROUT

segments. But that landscape just got bigger with the addition of
 television's only live morning show for preschoolers. The Sunny Side Up
 Show, PBS KIDS SPROUT'S first foray into live programming, is an energized
 and interactive environment where preschoolers and their parents can gather
 each morning to learn, share and laugh. Two hosts will rotate weekly and
 partner up with Chica, a witty, playful chicken. The interactive show will
 feature guest appearances from loveable characters like Sesame Street(R)'s
 Big Bird and Elmo, everyone's favorite purple dinosaur Barney(TM) and even
 SPROUT'S very own Nina from The Good Night Show or Miles and Banjo from the
 Let's Go Show! plays a paramount role in the show encouraging
 preschoolers and their parents to share weather reports, submit artwork or
 send in pictures. The live aspect allows for that interaction to be
 immediate and unique, creating a true sense of community as the hosts and
 Chica share back with viewer-- submitted birthday cards, artwork, contest
 submissions, emails and more.
     The Sunny Side Up show rounds out SPROUT'S unique 24-hour programming
 line-up that follows the day of the preschooler from breakfast to bedtime.
 Whether kids are starting the day with the live morning show, discovering
 new things each afternoon with The Let's Go Show or winding down for bed at
 night with The Good Night Show, SPROUT is always there to share in what's
 important to preschoolers and their families.
     The Sunny Side Up Show airs from 9am-12pm EST each weekday morning...
