The Jim Henson Company (1999–2001)
Noggin is an entertainment brand launched on February 2, 1999 as a joint venture between Viacom's Nickelodeon and the Children's Television Workshop (now known as Sesame Workshop). The Jim Henson Company also held a stake in the channel when it was launched. Noggin was initially advertised as both a linear television network and a website. The brand has since expanded to include three mobile subscription services, a second website and four defunct programming blocks worldwide. It was initially aimed at a pre-teen audience and shifted its target demographic to preschool-aged children in April 2002.
