Noggin was a 24-hour cable television network in the United States, run jointly by Nickelodeon and Sesame Workshop, intended to help children learn. One of Nickelodeon's sister channels, Noggin concentrated on preschool programs and featured the animated characters of Moose A. Moose (a moose voiced by Paul Christie, who also voiced Stick Stickly on Nick in the Afternoon) and Zee (a mostly silent blue bird); for its first year, Noggin was hosted by a character colloquially known as "Feetface". The network's programming consisted mostly of recent Nick Jr. and Noggin original series.

From April 1, 2002, to December 31, 2007, the channel only aired between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern/5 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central. The N aired through the rest of the channel's airtime. This timeshare practice was in place on Dish Network until April 23, 2009.

On December 31, 2007, Noggin's sister channel, Nickelodeon GAS, left the satellite and digital cable channel lineups, and moved to the online-only TurboNick; The N took over Nick GAS's channel position after splitting from Noggin. However, Dish Network released Nick GAS from its lineup on April 24, 2009, and split the N/Noggin channels on May 27, 2009. Noggin was on Channel 169 and The N was on Channel 181. Both channels went 24 hours.

On September 28, 2009, the channel changed its name to Nick Jr. as part of a complete rebrand of Nickelodeon and its siblings. In 2015, Noggin was revived as subscription service for preschoolers.
