Noggin was a Canadian English language digital cable channel owned by Corus Entertainment and Sesame Workshop.

It featured educational (and some entertainment) programming from Nickelodeon, Nelvana, YTV and Sesame Workshop.

HistoryEdit

In November 1999, Corus was granted approval by the CRTC to launch a television channel called YTV 2. Before the channel's launch, the channel was renamed to Noggin because it focused on educational programming, just like the US version. The channel was launched on May 29, 2000. From May 2000 to September 2005, Noggin was targeted to pre-teens but also aired pre-school shows like Maggie and the Ferocious Beast and Blue Clues.

Just like the American channel, Noggin Canada had the mascot Phred. However, due to Canadian content requirements, Phred was voiced by Samuel Vincent. Like the American version of Phred, he was said to live "in the dot of noggin dot ca." He was dropped in 2005 when Noggin became a full-time preschool channel.

Different from the US version, Noggin Canada had commercial breaks because it wasn't a Canadian premium channel like Family, and continued to air Sesame Workshop shows after 2005, due to Sesame Workshop co-owning it.
