Treehouse (program block)
Treehouse was previously a programing block on YTV. It aired weekday mornings until 1998, after which it was replaced with an unhosted block, simply called "YTV Jr."While most hosted blocks had one or two hosts, Treehouse had 3 PJs (Program Jockeys) and was also co-hosted by
the Fuzzpaws(stuffed animal puppets, similar to Muppets)As the name suggests, it was set in a treehouse. PJ Katie had her own show, called PJ Katie's Farm, where she acted out stories with clay animals.
After Treehouse was cancelled, The Fuzzpaws got their own show on YTV Jr. and PJ Katie went on to become Jenny on The Zone (Katie was her middle name, there already was a Jenny with YTV at the time she was a PJ)The name YTV Jr. was later dropped; there was still children's programming shown at the time, but there was not a special name given to it.
