'''Sprout''' (formerly PBS Kids Sprout) is a cable/satellite network that originated as a subnetwork of PBSKids which originates from {{UsefulNotes/Philadelphia}}. Originally launched as a Video on Demand service, Sprout replaced the 24/7 PBS Kids network in 2005. It was a partnership of SesameWorkshop, Apax Partners (a share owned by HITEntertainment prior to its purchase by Mattel), PBS and [=NBCUniversal=] (via the Comcast merger). The latter company became the sole owner late in 2013, with NBCU's international kids' channel joint venture [=KidsCo=] ending in the process.

In July 2012, Sprout kicked {{Qubo}} to the curb and took over programming NBC and Telemundo's Saturday morning blocks, under the names NBC Kids and [=MiTelemundo=] respectively. With the demise of Creator/{{Vortexx}}, NBC Kids is the last Saturday morning block on a major English-language U.S. commercial TV network to air [[SaturdayMorningCartoon cartoons]], albeit of an educational nature. That'll come to an end in October 2016 in favor of a block from Litton Entertainment branded "The More You Know", based off NBC's long running series of {{public service announcement}}s. On another note, despite PBS no longer owning a stake, several PBS Kids shows still aired on the network until their contract to do so (except ''Caillou'' and ''The Berenstain Bears'', the latter of which hasn't been seen on PBS nationally in years) expired on September 26, 2015.

Notably, unlike most U.S. networks of this type (i.e. Nick Jr., Disney Junior), Sprout actually airs advertising in-between programs. They have a stated policy of only airing ads targeted at children's parents, rather than children themselves, though naturally some ads might blur those lines. (Ads for ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'' aired after [=NBCUniversal=] gained ownership of the channel, as have ads for [[DirectToVideo DTV movie]] ''Franchise/{{Barbie}} Mariposa & The Fairy Princess'', distributed by Universal.)
