    How could I forget Franklin! :D I loved it when I was younger.

    I'm not a huge fan of Little Bear though, it's ok.

    No Rupert or Babar, this is a sham! X(

    (I assume possible rights issues? Possibly with the original franchise owners or Ellipse Programme?)

    I would assume they'd have rights issues with American Greetings over those particularly.

    FYI: Little Bear and Franklin are already available on a different YT channel: Treehouse Direct. It doesn't have every episode, though.

    'Hey, maybe they'll upload all of "Pelswick" one day', he said, naivete dripping from every pore.

    Some of these Treehouse Direct channels have Wayside, but with the shortened intro.

    Really? Which ones? That was my favorite book as a kid and I never saw the show they made out of it.

    The show came out in 2007, though it wasn't a huge success as some people didn't like it, especially those who read the book.

    I've found a curiosity in Treehouse Direct's Mandarin Chinese channel. They accidentally uploaded a "Babar" episode ("A Charmed Life") in... Hebrew (well while the intro is Chinese, the episode itself is in Hebrew), despite the fact that at the time of writing this post there's no Treehouse Direct Hebrew channel:

    (the YT video is unavailable in China and countries in which Mediatoon (successor of Ellipseanime) holds distribution rights to the "Babar" cartoon, that is: France, Benelux, German-speaking countries, Nordic countries, Iceland, Greenland, Spain, Portugal and French-speaking Africa)

    A similiar mix-up happened with Polish Treehouse Direct channel which has uploaded eps. 53-62 of "Rupert" in English only.

    Neat. It'll be nice watch Little Bear and co. again.

    Also do they still have the right to Cardcaptor Sakura? It'd be nice to watch the dub officially again for novelty's sake.

    So the Mandarin channel is made for Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong?

    I would love to see a Dutch channel. There's one in Swedish and Norwegian, why can't there be one in Dutch?

    Personally, though, I'd prefer a European Portuguese channel (there is one in Brazilian Portuguese at the moment).

    I don't think Nelvana has the rights to that anymore. An anime/video game company called NIS America released a boxset with the whole series a few years ago (however, they used the Animax English dub from Asia on their set rather than the Nelvana English dub).

    Interesting that Pandalian is available on the Japanese one. Curiously it has the Sponsor cards and uses textless masters for the Opening and Ending.

    Well, this channel started off promisingly but it's clearly on life support. The last update was three months ago.

    A shame, I would've loved to have seen Beetlejuice and Eek! the Cat on there, at least.
