    Qubo is a 24/hour american channel for kids and their families owned by Ion Media Networks. With Qubo having a vast variety of shows, what do you think Qubo should acquire? Personally I would like to see Ruby Gloom, but I don't think it'll happen anytime soon.

    Same here. I would also love to see George Shrinks, Corduroy, Maggie and the Ferocious Beast, and Braceface on Qubo.

    How ironic, once I had a dream that the former aired on Qubo.

    I would like to see...
    My Dad the Rock Star (if Nickelodeon no longer has the rights to it)
    Maggie & The Ferocious Beast (if Nickelodeon no longer has the rights to it)
    Corduroy (Since PBS no longer has the rights to it)
    George Shrinks (Since PBS no longer has the rights to it)
    Lazy Town (It's possible that Sprout no longer has the rights to it, since it is no longer on their website)
    Ruby Gloom (Hasn't aired on American television)
    Braceface (If Disney no longer has the rights to it)
    Dumb Bunnies (I'm pretty certain that CBS no longer has the rights to it)
    And most importantly...
    The Nutshack!

    How about Mona the Vampire and Milly and Molly or Sylvanian Families?

    More suggestions!
    Miffy and Friends (if Nickelodeon loses the rights to it)
    Baby Looney Tunes
    ReBoot (I had a dream about that show airing on Qubo)
    The Berenstain Bears (if PBS loses the rights to it)
    The Mr. Men Show (I don't think Turner has the rights to it anymore)
    Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! (Could work, Nickelodeon hasn't done anything with it, and they don't even want to put it on their Noggin app)

    Some of these acquisitions are good, but there are some problems with the others you mentioned.
    1. The Berenstain Bears is currently airing on Sprout.
    2. Miffy and Friends is still acquired by Viacom, just look at the Noggin app.
    3. Baby Looney Tunes is a no go because Boomerang will probably add it again.

    A lot of these shows can be currently seen on digital devices like Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV on the free TubiTV, Pluto TV, Shout Factory TV, and Popcorn Flix services.

    Among those, including a few that have actually aired on Qubo, are:

    Ruby Gloom
    Being Ian
    My Dad The Rock Star
    Di-Gata Defenders
    Birdz
    Dumb Bunnies
    Maggie and the Ferocious Beast
    Inspector Gadget
    Sonic The Hedgehog
    The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog
    Sonic Underground
    Blazing Dragons
    Redwall
    ReBoot
    Bump in the Night
    Dark Oracle
    Thunderbirds
    Stingray
    Flying Rhino Jr. High
    My Little Pony
    My Little Pony Tales

    And so many more. Seriously, there are lots of 'em. They're just there for free over-the-top on those devices. Qubo hasn't been the same since they scrubbed the original Night Owl stuff, and since Nelvana's the only partner around, the pickings are going to be pretty slim for the foreseeable future, especially since Nelvana could go the OTT route as they've done in many of these shows.

    The only show it would love to see on Qubo is Delilah And Julius. It aired on Starz back then, remember?

    I have more ideas for shows Qubo could acquire:
    1. The Koala Brothers (Disney's done with it)
    2. The Hoobs (I'm pretty sure Sprout's done with it)
    3. Bump in the Night (It's been years since it last aired on American television)
    4. RoboRoach (the previous US channel that aired it is now defunct)
    5. The Secret Show (Nicktoons is obviously done with it)

    Here are some of MY ideas:
    • Gerald McBoing Boing (obviously CN's done with it)
    • My Big Big Friend (I don't think it aired in America)
    • Will and Dewitt (Kids WB's defunct, and it isn't even owned by WB)
    • Busytown Mysteries (since they already have The Original Busy World of Richard Scarry)
    • Mona the Vampire

    More suggestions

    • LazyTown (you probably already know why)
    • Babar & the Adventures of Badou (I think Disney's done with it. Plus Qubo does have the original Babar)
    • I'm starting to run out of ideas

    I run out of ideas all the time. But I have several new ideas.

    • Rubbadubbers (it's been years since it aired on american television)
    • Peep and the Big Wide World (they already have ToddWorld and Meteor, so why not?)
    • Zoboomafoo (unless PBS still owns the rights)
    • Astroblast (Sprout is no longer airing it, and the fact that it's made by Scholastic, one of Qubo's former partners)
    • Oh No! It's an Alien Invasion (it's made by Nelvana, plus it never aired in America before)
    And that's it.

    I am well aware that some PBS stations still have the rights to it.

    (DOUBLE POST)
    Speaking of PBS, maybe Between the Lions could air on Qubo, considering the fact that the show is no longer being acknowledged by PBS...

    The website is still up, but it's no longer airing.
