Treehouse TV is a Canadian English language cable television specialty channel with programming targeted towards children that was launched on November 1, 1997. Its name comes from YTV's old children's programming block, The Treehouse. The channel is owned by Corus Entertainment. The cable channel used to broadcast over 35 different television shows, including 3rd & Bird.


Programming typically consists of a 15-22 minute show, followed by a few minutes of commercials advertising other programs on Treehouse TV, followed by a 5 minute segment such as Treetown, Farzzle's World, Toopy and Binoo, 4 Square, or the Mole Sisters. Treehouse TV broadcasts mostly children's shows, geared towards ages 8 and younger. Also, every new year Treehouse TV airs the movie Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure, along with other brand-new shows. Treehouse TV's original programming is primarily produced by Nelvana, another Corus Entertainment company.
