1st host Melaine and Star.

Status: Partially Found

The Goodnight Show is a TV show that plays between other shows on Sprout (now known as Universal Kids) and while Nina & Star episodes were very popular with audiences, there were two other hosts that had the show on a very rocky start, Melanie Martinez & Noel Macneal were the original two hosts on the Good Night Show

History

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 Mid-July 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 was the Intern Host and because he is a puppeteer, it is beleived that he came up with the idea for Lucy the Firefly

Hosts/Cast

  • 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 the main host 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." And Stuck around thoughout the rest of the series.
  • Lucy The Firefly is 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,
  • Hush was a real-life goldfish who was originally used to introduce show segments with Melaine.
