Creator / CBeebies

CBeebies is a channel created by The BBC for kids aged 0-6, with its name being a "babyish" version of CBBC, the channel for 6-12-year-olds. There are shows ranging from science to learning about vegetables and fruits to learning British Sign Language to learning how to cook (on a kid scale so they use blunt knives and scissors a lot).

It can be fun sometimes when you're tired of hearing the same episodes a million times to create Epileptic Trees about the different shows.

The channel shares bandwidth with BBC Four and the latter takes over after CBeebies signs off for the day, and will run until morning when they would sign off to give way to CBeebies again.

The channel is comparable to ITV's cITV and Channel 5's Milkshake! slot.

The BBC's Worldwide arm also transmits an international feed of CBeebies, of which there are several notable differences. Firstly, the channel runs 24 hours and does not shut down for the night, mainly because it has to cater to many different countries and it doesn't need to share bandwidth with other channels, being funded by subscription. Secondly, it has licenses to shows that otherwise belong to other networks in the UK (ie Humf) and also does not carry several shows that are broadcast by the UK version because the rights of those went to different provider (ie Postman Pat, which in Asia was snapped up by Cartoon Network for it's Boomerang network, and Chuggington, whose rights in Asia remained with Disney and is seen on Disney Junior instead). And lastly, it is also often transmitted in multiple languages, some cable TV providers carry up to three different language audio feeds for it's shows.
