->''"Where the good fun begins!"''

Qubo is a media venture which aims to "provide quality, entertaining children's programming in a safe environment"; encompassing a Saturday morning lineup aired by NBC and Creator/{{Telemundo}} (in English and Spanish respectively), along with a 24-hour channel broadcast on Ion subchannels, along with their accompanying online platforms. It was launched in 2006 as a joint venture between an all-star cast of companies; including ION and Creator/{{NBC}}, along with Creator/{{Nelvana}}, Scholastic, and Classic Media (for content production and access to their respective libraries).

The Qubo block, a Saturday morning block of educational programs (Broadcast by NBC and Telemundo) debuted on September 9, 2006, with re-runs on Ion the following Friday. For NBC, Qubo replaced their previous Discovery Kids block, while Qubo on Telemundo replaced a block of Nickelodeon and Nelvana dubs. On January 8, 2007, a Qubo Channel launched on the subchannels of Ion's stations. The network originally ran a looping 4-hour block of programs; this block expanded into a 6-hour cycle with more outside programming later in the year, and in 2010, the channel introduced the late-night block ''Qubo's Night Owl'', which primarily consists of classic animated series from the Creator/{{Filmation}} library.

Qubo began to hit snags in March 2012 with the announcement that NBC and Telemundo would drop the Qubo block in favor of new preschool blocks programmed by Creator/{{Sprout}} (which NBC's new parent company, Comcast, already owned a stake in, and now fully owns), known as NBC Kids and [=MiTelemundo=] respectively. This leaves only the Ion block and 24/7 channel, putting a huge damper on its availability.
