Availability[edit | edit source]

In 2008, The songs were originally released on a CD as part of a very obscure and limited promotional giveaway on the sprout online website, released on iTunes for a limited time, were available for download on the sprout online website, and also aired as a musical on the Sprout Channel (Now Known as Universal Kids), although this is still being speculated, the songs may have been downloadable as late as 2011, before one of the major overhauls on the sprout online website, and the actual music videos were, for the most part, lost shortly after broadcast until 2017 when 4 of them were uploaded by Meredith Halpern, Sprout's Creative Director, on Vimeo, who was involved in the production of the musical. 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 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 Archive.org by user P0902151.

Preschool Musical on 2 Sticks (2009)[edit | edit source]

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 at least some puppets being attached to two popsicle sticks instead of just one.[2] There is no evidence that a CD was ever produced for this revised musical, so almost everything about it is lost.
