Sprout Preschool Musical... On a Stick is a made-for-TV musical that features stick puppet characters from The Sunny Side Up Show, The Sprout Sharing Show, The Good Night Show with Nina & Star, The Lets Go Show, Musical Mornings with Coo and The Wiggles. In the musical, they sing about the holiday season, friendship, family and being together during the holidays.[1]


The special was first broadcast in December of 2008. While there is no concrete evidence that the original musical was aired multiple times, its revision, Preschool Musical on 2 Sticks, was[2]. The soundtrack was released on a CD as part of a limited promotional giveaway on the Sprout Online website. The album was also released on iTunes and the Sprout Online website as a digital download, but was eventually taken down. The songs may have been downloadable as late as 2011, before one of the major overhauls on the Sprout Online website. The actual music videos were, for the most part, lost shortly after broadcast, until 2017, when 4 of them were uploaded to Vimeo by Meredith Halpern, Sprout's Creative Director. On Jan 8th, 2020, LMW User ChocolateCircus445 found the CD on Amazon and uploaded all of the songs online. The lyrics of all the songs can be found on The Internet Archive.

On January 8th, 2021, the music videos on Meredith Halpern's Vimeo were taken down/privated for unknown reasons but were later re-uploaded to by user P0902151.

On June 9th, 2023, the entirety of Preschool Musical On a Stick was made public by the University of Georgia's Walter J. Brown Media Archives.

Preschool Musical on 2 Sticks (2009)

In an interview with Halpern, she stated that Preschool Musical on 2 Sticks was a revision of the original 2008 musical. The revisions included a new scene including the Wiggles, the Wiggles being in the finale, and some puppets being attached to two popsicle sticks instead of just one.[3] There is no evidence that a soundtrack CD was ever produced for this revised musical.
