Many Edutainment Shows appear on PBS, the most famous example being ''Series/SesameStreet''. Nickelodeon also has had quite a few in their "Creator/NickJr" block, such as ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'' and ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'', as do specialized fact-oriented cable networks as The Learning Channel, the many Discovery channels, the History Channel, and Animal Planet. At least until NetworkDecay sets in.

In the United States, since 1990, networks are required to air at least 3 hours of educational material a week; the tag "E/I" (for "Educational/Informative") was created to denote such shows (though in the case of stations carrying Series/SavedByTheBell, the rules are susceptible to LoopholeAbuse if AnAesop is fit into the show in just the right way, and they can count as E/I). Now you know what the AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle is referring to.

Then the Daleks showed up, became massively popular, and changed the emphasis of the show to pure sci-fi and scary monsters rather than education.

* Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote series is a ChildrensLiterature published on a Chindren's imprint. Its anime adaptation was financed by public broadcaster Creator/{{NHK}} and aired in its education channel. As expected, there're quite a bit of life lession, plus a lot of expositions, some of which may go over the head of its tween readership. For example, the twentieth novel ''The Youkai Computer Knows'' introduces a large number of computer science terms, ranging from the several flavours of C, to Deep Learning, and to cybersecurity terms such as [=DDoS=]. In the same novel, synthetic cannabinoids was also discussed.
