Well, you can have some singing cats, a Chef, and a bunch of post-adolescents dressed up in weird uniforms doing their best N-Sync meets Barney impression… wait, that’s been done.
Really, what will your target age group and level of English be? Is it meant to supplement kids who are already attending buxibans or to complement a kindergarten style program?
With younger kids you need something flashy and cute to keep their attention. You’ll need some kind of gimmick. Older kids could be interested with clever skits. Have you ever seen “Read Between the Lions”? That is a GREAT children’s show, on par with Sesame Street, but aimed at S St. graduates.

I would hope to be able to do both. Make the beginning stuff fun enough that the older/more advanced kids wouldn’t get bored, and make the garder stuff entertaining enough that the beginning kids wouldn’t go to sleep, droll…etc.
Or the younger kids would have to be doing something…ie, learning something. Flash is ok…but flash has been done to death and is only midly effective IMHO in Taiwan.
My son used to repsond to the Taiwanese YOYO TV kids shows “NOOOOOO DAD! Not this!! MAKE IT GO AWAY!”
like i said, hire me and other said person to do the music. we have our work method down. and i write kids songs quite fast. it takes me like 15 minutes to do the midi arrangement–FROM SCRATCH. said person sings great. i would get Limey to do all the audio work if i were you. you do Pro Tools, right Limey?
