Morning show "Sunny Side Up" features Chica, a chicken who is joined by human co-hosts who encourage viewers to participate in activities that often involve learning. They try to get preschoolers to celebrate birthdays, play games, make crafts and participate in other fun activities that usually revolve around a particular theme that changes each week. Viewers become part of the show's content, which includes the hosts reading messages from viewers, celebrating viewers' accomplishments with the Good Egg Awards, and Sproutlet Stories, which lets kids tell their own tales.
Popular Chica ("The Sunny Side Up Show") gets her own show in this live-action/animation hybrid that promotes social-emotional development in preschoolers. Chica helps her mom and dad in the Costume Coop, a playful shop filled with whimsical costumes, and when the shop closes, she and her friends transform into animated characters and go on adventures that teach kids lessons, including one on an underwater adventure that teaches about cleanup time and another on a voyage with Vikings that explains why manners are important. Chica's buddies include best friend Kelly, huggable rag doll Stiches and pet rabbit Bunji.
