Availability[edit | edit source]
In 2008, The songs were originally released on a CD as part of a very obscure and limited promotional giveaway on the sprout online website, released on iTunes for a limited time, were available for download on the sprout online website, and also aired as a musical on the Sprout Channel (Now Known as Universal Kids), although this is still being speculated, the songs may have been downloadable as late as 2011, before one of the major overhauls on the sprout online website, and the actual music videos were, for the most part, lost shortly after broadcast until 2017 when 4 of them were uploaded by Meredith Halpern on Vimeo, who was involved in the production of the musical, on Jan 8th, 2020, our very own LMW User ChocolateCircus445 found the CD (Most Likely from Amazon of all places) and uploaded all of the Audio Versions of the songs online, And the lyrics of all the songs can also be found on Archive.
On January 8th, 2021, the music videos on Meredith Halpern's Vimeo were taken down/privated for unknown reasons, but were later re-uploaded to Archive.org by user P0902151.
Preschool Musical on Two Sticks (2009)[edit | edit source]
While we now know alot more about the original 2008 version of this, the 2009 sequel titled "Preschool Musical on Two Sticks" is even more obscure because we don't know enough about it; there was no CD released for the second version, it seemed to be a TV-only musical sequel, and the few details we do know about it, based on the one promo video, is that some of the songs, at certain parts, were sung by different characters, the best example of this is when you listen to Holiday Feast where in the original it's mostly the Sprout Diner characters singing with some others in the background, but in the sequel, you can also clearly hear The Wiggles characters singing, among others, and there seem to be more characters in the sequel then in the original, although this is only speculated, but what is also highly speculated is that there could be 2 versions of some of the music videos, but since we don't have the full TV Broadcast for both versions we currently don't fully know yet.
