What happens when the naughtiest, bravest and most curious fox cub in the world moves from his safe home in the country to the strange and dangerous city? In the animated series, Pablo the Little Red Fox, Pablo‘s adventures are full of fun and mayhem, as the little fox cub and his friends, a dog named Baxter, a cat named Finbar, a frog called Fromage, a seagull called Gil and an owl named Madam Owl, make the most of their life in the strange, wonderful and sometimes scary world of humans.

Making its debut on CBeebies is award-winning Charlie and Lola, charmingly depicting sibling relationships.

Each episode, children are given the opportunity to award themselves something shiny when they answer a question correctly, and are praised for joining in.

The Shiny Show airs every day at 8 am, 11 am, 2 pm and 5 pm.

The Numberjacks are superhero numbered characters from Zero to Nine, who live inside a sofa and solve mathematical problems.
