Super Why! isn't listed?! That is the best show on PBS for my 19 month old. He is actually learning letters and letter sounds from it. IT is super interactive, too. He even responds when the team asks questions.

Super Why is a good one too. Not sure why they didn't list that one. These were just their top ones. Great, now I have Super Why song stuck in my head. :)
