PBS Kids Sprout

2005-2013

PBS Kids Sprout

PBS Kids Sprout was launched on September 26, 2005 by Sesame Workshop, PBS, Comcast, HIT Entertainment, NBC / Universal (now NBCUniversal), and Apax Partners as a preschooler oriented network. On January 28, 2011, Comcast purchased the media conglomerate NBCUniversal, merging most of its media operations with it, including PBS Kids Sprout. Later, in October 2011, Apax Partners announced a sale of HIT Entertainment to Mattel (it ended up in Fisher-Price's control); the acquisition was completed on February 1, 2012, and did not include HIT's share in PBS Kids Sprout.

Sprout logo 2013

This logo was intended to be merely be an alternate version of the main logo without the PBS Kids logotype in the green flower. However, on November 13, 2013, after NBCUniversal bought out PBS, Sesame Workshop, and Apax Partners' shares in PBS Kids Sprout, the "PBS Kids" trademark was removed from the name and the channel was rebranded as "Sprout".
