Cookie Jar TV is a three-hour children's programming block on CBS. It launched on September 16, 2006 as KOL Secret Slumber Party, re-branded as KEWLopolis on September 15, 2007 and again as Cookie Jar TV on September 19, 2009. The block replaced Nick Jr. on CBS/Nick on CBS, which was produced by Viacom's Nickelodeon before CBS and Viacom became two separate companies, and CBS's former children's blocks, CBS Kids, CBS Kidz and CBS Kidshow. The block is owned and programmed by Cookie Jar Entertainment (the successor to block creator DIC Entertainment). As KEWLopolis, the block was a tie-in with a monthly teen magazine, KEWL, which was established in part by DiC in May 2007.
All programming in the block is in compliance with federal "E/I" requirements as mandated by the Federal Communications Commission. Though the block is intended to air on Saturday mornings, like its predecessors, some CBS affiliates choose to tape-delay 30 minutes to an hour of the block to air at a different weekend timeslot (usually on Sunday mornings).

Famous quotes containing the words cookie and/or jar:
“Living by basic good-mothering guidelines enables a mom to blend the responsibilities of parenthood with its joys; to know when to stand her ground and when to be flexible; and to absorb the lessons of the parenting gurus while also trusting her inner voice when it reasons that another cookie isnt worth fighting over, or that her child wont suffer irreparable trauma if, once in a while, Mom puts her own needs first.”
—Sue Woodman (20th century)
“Drink your fill when the jar is first opened, and when it is nearly done, but be sparing when it is half-empty; its a poor saving when you come to the dregs.”
—Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
