Gus the Itsy Bitsy Knight 
 PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 6, 2021 Small in stature but big in courage and kindness, Gus is ready for action in this new animated series. Set in medieval times with a modern twist, it follows the diminutive knight as he pursues adventures on his electric pony. Gus’s world includes fellow knights, princesses and the big guy, Daddy King, along with rascals like Stinky-Dragons, Warticious, the Shadow Knight and his naughty Knight-Knights.

Elinor Wonders Why 
PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 6, 2021 Elinor is a curious little bunny. When she encounters something she doesn’t understand, she can’t let it go until she figures it out! With the help of her friends Ari, an imaginative bat, and Olive, a perceptive elephant, there’s lots to learn and explore in Animal Town – like the best way to engineer a pillow fort and why Ari’s Velcro watch strap only sticks to certain things. Engaging and fun, the series encourages children to follow their curiosity, ask questions and find answers using science enquiry skills. 

ABC with Kenny G 
PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 6, 2021 Fans of the award-winning Canadian series 16 Hudson will recognize the star of these swinging little animated shorts – the grumpy cat Kensington, who seems unimpressed by all the daytime shenanigans in the neighbourhood. But when night falls and the humans go to bed, Kensington (or rather his alter-ego Kenny G) comes to life. He rounds up a bunch of animal buddies and slinks down to the basement boiler room – home to the local “milk & cookies” jazz club. There, he croons late-night ABC songs (L is for lazy lobsters, leaping lemurs and lively loons) to his grooving groupies. Now that is one cool cat! 

Dog Loves Books 
PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 9, 2021 Forget about bones – there’s nothing these two dogs like better than chewing on a good book. (Thankfully not in a literal sense!) Dog is cool, calm and unflappable – a dog of few words. Pug is enthusiastic, flappable and very, very chatty. They may be opposites, but the two best pals share a love of stories. When Dog’s bookshop closes for the day, he picks up a book from the shelves and then he and Pug are off on an exciting, imaginative adventure. Whimsical and humorous, the series aims to foster interest in reading, especially among young boys.
