PBS NewsHour Weekend - PTV block - Netflix
The framework for PBS Kids was established as part of PBS's “Ready to Learn” initiative, a project intended to facilitate access of early childhood educational programming to underprivileged children. On July 11, 1994, PBS repackaged their existing children's educational programming as a new block called “PTV”. In addition to scheduled educational programming, PTV also incorporated interstitial content such as “The P-Pals”, which featured animated characters shaped like PBS logos delivering educational content from their fictional world, “PTV Park”. These interstitial shorts were aimed at younger children. Older children were targeted with live action and music video interstitials. Several of the interstitial shorts, along with some of the station identification sequences that were shown during the block, continued to be used by some PBS member stations after PTV aired for the last time on September 5, 1999.
