Saturdays
9am The Chica Show
Chica is a five-year-old "baby" chick who spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. In each episode Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure—a fantasy transformation to animation-- where Bunji and Stiches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development, and Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills.

This special time together leads to different discoveries, but one thing is always clear - the world around them is welcoming and safe, and nighttime is a cozy, special time when accompanied by friendship and a song. The series follows the amazing adventures of four sweet and gentle characters - Sweet Pea Sue the pony, the excitable duck Squacky, the creative cow CowBella and the optimistic puppy Apollo - who were designed and built by the world-famous Oscar and Emmy Award-winning Jim Henson's Creature Shop from original concepts by Los Angeles-based toy and clothing designer, artist Jeff Muncy.
