PBS Kids Bookworm Bunch

PBS Kids Bookworm Bunch Is a three-hour block of children's animated series on George Shrinks.

On October 27, 2001, the block was cut down to two hours, deleting Corduroy and Elliot Moose.

In early 2003, PBS scheduled a weekday version of the block, which included The Berenstain Bears and Maurice Sendak's Seven Little Monsters shared the same half-hour time-slot (with an 11-minute story of each series). Timothy Goes to School and Marvin the Tap-Dancing Horse left the network.

In 2003, PBS launched the "Share a Story" ad campaign that aired between Maurice Sendak's Seven Little Monsters. The song used in the campaign was sung by popular American rock band They Might Be Giants.

After the cancellation of the Bookworm Bunch block in 2004, the non-cable Qubo channel airs reruns of Marvin the Tap-Dancing Horse and Timothy Goes to School as part of its daily programming. Elliot Moose reruns also aired on Qubo from 2007-2010. Cable channel Discovery Kids also aired reruns of Timothy Goes to School from 2004 until 2006. The block was replaced in October 2004 by PBS Kids Go!.
