PBS Kids is a children's block of {{Edutainment Show}}s on Creator/{{PBS}} that launched in 1993. It has aired on many PBS affiliates.

They also aired another block called ''PBS Kids GO!'', which was aimed at older children. It was launched in 2004 and dropped after a rebrand in 2013.

Up until November 2013, it also ran PBS Kids Sprout, a cable channel aimed at preschoolers, alongside Sesame Workshop, [=NBCUniversal=] (previously Comcast, but became a part of NBCU as result of the former's purchase of it), and Apax Partners (former owners of [=HiT=] Entertainment). A number of the listed programs no longer airing regularly on most PBS stations (and even shows that never aired on PBS anywhere in the first place) can currently be seen on Sprout. About two years after NBCU bought its stake, the company bought the network outright, rechristening it Creator/{{Sprout}}. Sprout itself runs a Saturday morning block on semi-sister station NBC called NBC Kids, with another block on NBC's Spanish network Telemundo called [=MiTelemundo=].
