Sid the Science Kid
All About Sid the Science Kid
Sid the Science Kid is a computer-animated show by Jim Henson Productions that debuted on PBS Kids on September 1, 2008. (Here's some Sid trivia: Sid was originally going to be called Josh, and "What's the Big Idea?" was the working title for the show.) The show focuses on Sid and his preschool friends, Gabriela, Gerald, and May, as they explore science-themed topics with their teacher, Miss Susie.
Each day, Sid finds himself with a question about the world around him. He explores the answers throughout the day with the help of his family, friends, and teacher. Topics include things like senses, health, and weather. The focus is on scientific methods and themes, with lots of jokes, songs, and fun along the way.
