3rd host Nina and Star.

Status: Partially Found

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 six seasons produced and approximately 20-26 episodes per season 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.

Periodicity they would do live episodes like The 2011 Halloween episode, The 2009 Mothers Day episode or the 2014 Space Episode when Astroblast first premiered,

On the 6th and final season of The Good Night Show, Award-winning actor, activist and artist Esai Morales who is best known for being in the biopic La Bamba, Lt. Tony Rodriguez on NYPD Blue, Camino del Rio in the Netflix original series Ozark, and in the HBO series The Brink, joined the cast and played the role of Nina's Uncle known as Tio Javier in several episodes, but since season 6 is nearly completely lost it is currently unknown which episodes he appeared in.[1][2][3]


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 The Firefly who was originally a firefly puppet in seasons 2-4 then completely animated in Seasons 5 and 6 used to introduce show segments. She was also featured in games in animated form, 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, In Seasons 5/6 She was also used in animated form to help find constellations in the night time sky, and 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.

Host Episodes

# Host Name Co-Host(s) Season(s) Original Air Date Status
1 Melanie Star & Hush Season 1, Season 2 Original September 26th 2005-Mid July 2006 Partially Found

There are 6 seasons for The Good Night Show, the first season with Melanie Martinez as host, with the exception of a handful of clips, is almost completely missing, but the second season with Noel Macneal, on the other hand, is completely missing with absolutely no footage available online but is confirmed to exist based on the one photoshoot and a page from the old sprout website [4] and seasons 3-6 with Michele Lepe have some episodes and many clips available online which makes this the easiest to find but most episodes are still missing and have yet to be found

Season 2 has two known versions, One With Melanie and Star that aired in July 2006,[5] several weeks before she got fired,[6] and another re-taped version with Noel Macneal "Leo" & Star that aired from September-December 2006.


While it was popular when it Aired on the Sprout channel, there are only a few episodes available and a few clips for some mostly lost episodes on YouTube and Archive.org. Only one DVD has been released and there is currently not any digital release. Between 2009-2012, Sprout used to release podcasts which were clips of there shows that got released on iTunes, the Sprout Player App on IOS devices, and a website called digitalpodcast.com, but the app has been deleted and the podcasts were removed from iTunes and the files were revoked from the website. There were also clips of the show that were found on Sprout Online, but the site no longer exists. A YouTube user by the name of PBSKIDSSprout had uploaded clips from The Good Night Show and other shows that aired on Sprout, but when they moved youtube channels to a channel called Sprout, now known as Universal Kids Preschool, all videos on the old channel were made private and only a few Uploads remain on the current channel for this particular show. Also allegedly, for a short amount of time clips/episodes from the show were on the Google Play Store.[7][8][9][10][11][12]
