Someday School was a half-hour block produced by Benny Smart that aired on PBS Kids from 1998-2000. Most of the shows from the block (as well as anything pertaining to the block itself) are lost.

Little is known about the block or its shows. What is known about the block is that it aired on Sundays at 6 AM(WETA)/7 AM(Maryland Public Television)7:30 AM (KQED), among a few other public television stations across the US, and featured six different shows/segments imported from various countries such as Canada and Australia (Nounou Time, Humphrey B. Bear, The Slow Norris, Oakie Doke, My World, and Wiggly Park). The block was hosted by a character named "Mrs. Apple" (portrayed by Cathy Shambley) who would discuss the particular theme of the day's block and visit various teachers to demonstrate what the first day of school will be like. Nounou Time in particular was made for Someday School, and because of this it did not air at any other point in time in the US before or afterwards.

Of the six shows on the block, Here's Humphrey, Oakie Doke, and The Slow Norris are the most well documented, with several of their episodes being available on the internet; one of Oakie Doke`s two seasons can be found, some of The Slow Norris`s 60 episodes are online, and a fraction of Here's Humphrey`s 43 year run is also available. Some footage of Wiggly Park can be found as well. Of all of the shows featured, My World is the rarest, as no footage of the show exists online. There are also three low-quality episodes of the Someday School block available below (two of which are incomplete). As of 2019, these episodes have been taken down from the Internet Archive.

On August 8th, 2023, a VHS of Nounou Time was made available on YouTube, thanks to a youtube channel named Lympy'sLogosAndMore. The VHS, called Nounou Time: Good Morning, contains eight full episodes of Nounou Time. This is the only content relating to Nounou Time or Someday School as a whole that can be found online.
