Skinnamarink TV was a preschool children's sketch comedy television series that aired on CBC in Canada and TLC and Discovery Kids in the United States from 1997 to 1999.


The series stars Sharon, Lois and Bram and two new characters C.C. Copycat, a sarcastic blue feline played by Dwayne Adams, and Ella Acapella, a young female elephant, played by Tikka Sherman.

The show mocked the life of an actual television station. It included many skits and musical bits with Sharon, Lois & Bram acting as many different characters. Along with Ella Acapella and C.C. Copycat, Sharon, Lois & Bram operate a fictional TV station called Skinnamarink TV. The name comes from the song Skidamarink which closed the trio's original The Elephant Show.

The wraparounds involved the Big Red Button which does various things to the studio and the group.


The show premiered on TLC on October 27th, 1997[1] and it ran until February 21st, 2003[2] and on CBC on October 24th, 1997[3] until 2003.[4] The show also aired on Discovery Kids from September 7th, 1998[5] until February 21, 2003[6] in the United States due to Ready Set Learn rebranding.


The show has had a few DVD and VHS releases in 2001[7] and 2006.[8]


In 2023, the Canadian subscription streaming service, Ameba TV, uploaded the whole series in their catalog for $3.99[9].
