    I get the idea of them trying to make shorter shows, but when you have a 9-10 minute doorstop like Abby's Flying Fairy School (to say the least of Elmo's World), I have to admit, it's oddly slower paced than the original magazine format. I agree that sounds like they want it both ways, trying to make the show peppy and sharp for short attention spans yet trying to turn a show into a programming block siting networks rather than specific shows.

    Personally, I think the real reason for this is that its easier to make these shorter small shows for the foreign markets.
