In March 2006, Discovery Communications announced it would not renew its contract with NBC, citing a desire to focus exclusively on the Discovery Kids cable channel. On February 24, 2016 and March 1, 2016, NBCUniversal announced that NBC Kids would be discontinued and succeeded on October 8, 2016 on NBC and January 6, 2018 on Telemundo by The More You Know, a block produced by Litton Entertainment that would feature live-action documentary and lifestyle programs aimed at pre-teens and teenagers, similarly to a block also introduced by Litton for CBS co-owned CW the previous 2 years. Due to regulations defined by the Children's Television Act that require stations to carry E/I compliant programming for three hours each week at any time between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time, some NBC stations may defer certain programs aired within its Saturday morning block to Sunday daytime or earlier Saturday morning slots, or (in the case of affiliates in the Western United States) Saturday afternoons as makegoods to comply with the CTA regulations. This was followed by a live-action sequence in which a child faces a particular ethical dilemma, which then cuts back to the actor explaining how to viewers on how solve the problem should they encounter the situation previously depicted, before the child in the PSA rectifies the situation through said instructions. Occasionally, some or all programs featured within the block are subject to delay or pre-emption due to local or syndicated programs scheduled by local NBC stations, or may be delayed by the network due to sporting events such as the Summer Olympic Games, the French Open, the USGA-sanctioned U.S. Open and Presidents Cup tournaments, or English Premier League soccer. In May 2006, NBC Universal and Ion Media Networks announced plans to form Qubo, a joint venture in conjunction with Scholastic Corporation, Classic Media and Corus Entertainment subsidiary Nelvana.  Sprout also produced a Spanish-language sister block for Telemundo known as MiTelemundo. The move came as part of a shift by broadcast television networks towards using their Saturday morning lineup solely to comply with the educational programming requirements and when Sprout changed its name to Universal Kids on September 9, 2017. Not all shows within NBC's Saturday morning block are seen on all of the network's owned-and-operated stations and affiliates.  The new block, branded "Discovery Kids on NBC", premiered on September 14, 2002. In September 2004, the block expanded to include some animated series under the banner "Real Toons" such as Kenny the Shark, Tutenstein and Time Warp Trio. In September 1989, NBC premiered Saved by the Bell, a sitcom centered on the fictional Bayside High School in Pacific Palisades, California, which originated on The Disney Channel the year prior as Good Morning, Miss Bliss (the predecessor series, set in an Indianapolis, Indiana middle school, served as a starring vehicle for Hayley Mills, who did not return for the retooled series; four cast members from that show – Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dennis Haskins, Lark Voorhies and Dustin Diamond – were cast in Saved by the Bell as their Miss Bliss characters).
 Sprout also produced a Spanish-language sister block for Telemundo known as MiTelemundo. As a result of the continued success of Saved by the Bell, NBC restructured its Saturday morning lineup in September 1992, removing the animated series (ending the entirety of conventional children's programming – animated or otherwise – airing on NBC itself for the next ten years) in favor of additional live-action – mostly scripted – series aimed at teenagers as part of a new three-hour block under the brand TNBC (the network also launched an hour-long Saturday edition of Today that debuted simultaneously with the TNBC lineup). In 1956, NBC stopped airing children's programming within its weekday afternoon schedule, relegating the network's children's shows to Saturdays only with Howdy Doody serving as its marquee franchise for the remaining four years of that series' run. This article outlines the history of children's television programming on NBC including the various blocks and notable programs that have aired throughout the television network's history. NBC discontinued One to Grow On in September 1989, replacing that campaign with The More You Know series of PSAs that continue to air on the network as of 2015[update]. The series, which ran for 13 years until it ended in 1960, featured a myriad of characters led by a frecklefaced marionette voiced by the show's host, "Buffalo" Bob Smith. The multi-platform programming endeavor, aimed at children between 4 and 8 years of age, would comprise children's program blocks airing on NBC, Spanish-language sister network Telemundo and Ion Media's i: Independent Television (now Ion Television), as well as a 24-hour digital multicast channel on i's owned-and-operated stations (alternatively known as Qubo Channel), video on demand services and a branded website.

Named after NBC's series of public service campaigns, the three-hour Saturday morning block is programmed by Litton Entertainment, and features live-action programming aimed at teens..
