- Sing a song, we'll all sing along, with the Mother Goose Club!
What do you get when you take six well-known nursery rhyme characters and modernize them? Why, Mother Goose Club, of course!
Mother Goose Club is a collection of educational content for preschoolers featuring six colorful characters from the Mother Goose world. Through song, rhyme, play and dance, Mother Goose Clubs characters Baa Baa Sheep, Eep the Mouse, Little Bo Peep, Jack B. Nimble, Mary Quite Contrary and Teddy Bear who inspire viewers to interact with rhymes.
The brand's live-action content is produced in Nashville, Tennessee. There are also various animated segments featuring the cast, which, until 2017, were animated in Toon Boom Harmony. The videos are available on YouTube, distributed on Netflix, and broadcast on local PBS stations.
Not to be confused with Mother Goose Treasury.
Mother Goose Club provides examples of:
- Aerith and Bob: Mary, Jack, and Teddy are the only ones in the club that have normal names.
- All-CGI Cartoon: Since 2017, most of the cartoon videos are animated in CGI, though there are some rare 2D videos that pop up.
- Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: In the MGC universe, animals come in all colors. Sheep are pink and mice are blue.
- An Aesop: Occasionally. For example, the moral of Today is the Day for Valentines is that you don't have to make a card to show someone you care.
- Art Evolution: As shown in "Jingle Bells", the art style for the cartoons was much more crude looking, resembling the brand's coloring books. In "Swimming", the art style was similar, but more refined. The art style since "The Planting Song" aims for a chibi-esque look. And finally, the art style since Itsy Bitsy Spider is CGI.
- Awesome McCoolname: The entire cast has these names, seeing as they're nursery rhyme characters.
- The Baby of the Bunch: Eep the Mouse is the youngest of the team, but is treated as an equal regardless.
- Beary Friendly: Teddy Bear is a warm-hearted bear whose wisdom commands respect.
- Bowdlerization: The group sings some nursery rhymes with darker meanings to them, but given the demographic, they're retooled to be kid-friendly.
- Cartoony Eyes: In the cartoons, the characters have eyes shaped like black ovals with white highlights, but no discernible sclera.
- Edutainment Show: Teaches kids about literacy and sometimes other subjects like counting or the planets.
