Sprout Original: The Sprout Sharing Show
On weekday afternoons, The Sprout Sharing
Show sets the stage for hand puppets, viewer-submitted
videos and favorite Sprout® characters to share talents and
celebrate "Look what I can do!" moments. Set within a homemade
puppet theater, the Sprout House Band performs songs and introduces
videos sent in by viewers. Led by Patty, a loveable and positive
pig emcee who encourages everyone to let their talents shine, the
Sprout House Band also features Curtis E. Owl, a beatnik owl who
plays the stand-up bass and Ricky, a colorful rabbit showman on
keyboards. The Sprout Stage Mice help out backstage and both
Ricky's dad and Patty's mom visit from time to time to help
encourage family interaction. The puppet theater is framed with a
colorful curtain that opens to reveal different acts from animation
and puppetry to videos created and sent in by Sprout viewers. The
show includes segments from Sprout's trusted program library,
including: Angelina Ballerina,™ Fifi and the Flowertots,™ Bob The Builder,™ and PICME.
