• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

CBBC, as well as being a digital TV channel, is the collective name for all BBC output directly aimed at children, as well as the terrestrial channels' children shows times. (At least, children of primary-school age or older. Younger kids have CBeebies, which features much more on-screen presentation between shows, as well as guest presenters reading stories.)

Between shows, CBBC has a presenter or two, who tells the audience what is coming up and reads out cards and stuff sent in by the audience. There are also competitions. Between its launch in 1985 and 1994, it was broadcast from BBC1's continuity suite, known as "the broom cupboard". (Almost anyone old enough to remember this era considers it the golden age.) Many presenters have been accompanied by cheeky puppets, notably Gordon the Gopher, Edd the Duck and Otis the Aardvark, and currently[when?] the dogs Dodge, Hacker and Yonko.
