Kids Station is a Japanese satelite TV network aimed at children that launched in April 1993, though it had started operations as Lemon Channel two years prior. A majority of the programs shown on Kids Station are aimed at preschool-aged kids, though some of them are aimed at an older audience. Most notably, the channel shows several anime aimed at an older audience during the Otaku O'Clock hour. Most of its' programming is sourced from TV Tokyo. The channel also contains two programming blocks. HapiKura Time is their flagship one, consisting of the namesake program Happy! Clappy!, Oyako De Cooking and Anpanman. The other is Wakuwaku Sanrio Time, which shows reruns of various Sanrio television programs and anime. In the 90's and 2000's, many imported children's shows dubbed into Japanese also aired. This practice was abandoned by The New '10s, with the current lineup being mainly domestic and Asian programming with the exceptions of Curious George, PAW Patrol and Peppa Pig, the latter airing as part of the Kinder TV strand.

Not to be confused with the Japanese Playstation Edutainment Game lineup.

Compare to Nickelodeon and Nick Jr., its' American counterparts, and the British counterparts CBBC, CBeebies and CITV.
