The Goodnight Show is a TV show that plays between other shows on Sprout (now known as Universal Kids) that aired between 2005-2017 with the first episode airing September 26th, 2005, and ended when Sprout switched to Universal Kids in 2017. The hosts were Nina and Star from 2006-2017, with previous hosts Melanie and Leo from 2005-2006.


The Good Night Show features a variety of segments. Some of the segments were removed in 2012 for unknown reasons.

The first segment involves a different form of constellations as Nina and Star look at the sky with their telescope, and will usually have nighttime birthday remainders from The Sunny Side up Show. The second segment features an animated game titled Lucy, Light the Way!, where Lucy, a firefly puppet, (who introduces the shows that come between the block), will light up and viewers need to guess where Lucy is. The third segment involves a different craft based on the day’s theme. The crafts were removed in 2012, and were replaced by the Sandy Story segment, where Nina would tell a story and draw the pictures in the sand. The fourth segment involves Nina and Star to spin a moonbeam wheel, play a goodnight game, and translate a word in Spanish.

The quarter-final segment deals with cleaning up, where Nina and Star put up a musical number to sing. The final segment involves Nina to encourage viewers to give their wishes to Hush, their pet goldfish, with a poem and the goodnight song, Before or after that, Sprout friends sleeping to the iconic Pajanimals song La-La-Lullaby. The Pajanimals song was removed in 2016.

In later episodes, there were some special guests and went live in the sunshine barn from The Sunny Side up Show a couple of times


In September 2005, in a joint venture between Comcast, NBCUniversal, PBS, and HIT Entertainment/Sesame Workshop, PBS Kids Sprout was launched on Comcast and later other cable/satellite providers. The original host was Melanie until August 2006 when the network found some raunchy videos online and fired her, and for a short period of time, the second host was Leo aka Noel MacNeal who came up with Lucy the Firefly. The 3rd and the final host was Nina aka Michele Lepe and stayed host until 2017.


  • Nina, played by Michele Lepe, debuted as the permanent host on December 18th, 2006. Lepe's fourth season premiered on November 7th, 2009. and her fifth season premiered on August 27th, 2012. The sixth season premiered on July 27th, 2015. Michele (as Nina) guest-hosted The Sunny Side up Show in 2014.
  • Star, a star-shaped puppet, portrayed by Stacia Newcomb, was the show's co-host. Star served as the child character of the show, asking questions about the evening's theme, commenting to Nina about the segment (such as the Good-Night Game), or encouraging viewers to follow him as he performed nighttime routines such as brushing his teeth or reading a bedtime story. Star debuted shortly before the departure of the program's original host, "Melanie." His puppet was updated on November 7th, 2011 and again on August 27th, 2012. He appeared as a character in the prequel Nina's World, living with Nina, even though Star accompanied Melanie and Leo prior to Nina's arrival.
  • Lucy was a firefly puppet used to introduce show segments. She was also featured in games, such as "Lucy Light the Way"; in this game, viewers were shown parts of a picture (as though they were illuminated by a firefly's light) and then guessed what the picture represented. Her puppet was updated in mid-2009. She also appears as a character in the prequel Nina's World, living with Nina, even though she was introduced alongside Leo before Nina arrived.
  • Hush was a real-life goldfish who was originally used to introduce show segments. He appeared at the end of every show, with Nina closing the show by saying goodnight and reciting a poem in which viewers were encouraged to "make a wish." He appears in the prequel Nina's World living with Nina as a child even though he began with Melanie.
