Lucy Little's Afternoon was a created-for-syndication two-hour television programming block which aired from 1989, until 1997. At that time. Hosted by Dinky Little, Slick, Henry Bigg and Lucy Little from The Littles.
Lucy Little's Afternoon's two-hour block was broken up into four half-hour segments, each of which contained a cartoon series. As each season ended, the first cartoon shown in the lineup would typically be dropped, and a new one added to the end. Lucy Little's Afternoon itself featured unique animated segments consisting of its own opening and "wrappers" around the cartoon shows shown.
This block did not air in every market across the United States, but for those markets that did not air the block in full, individual shows featured on Lucy Little's Afternoon could be packaged by themselves.
In Edmonton, Canada, the city's then-independent TV station ITV (now Global Edmonton) produced its own version of Lucy Little's Afternoon over roughly the same period as the American program, but only once per week in a two-hour block on Saturday afternoons, though using the same cartoon lineup as the American weekday block. Apart from the animated introduction, the block did not use any produced wrapper segments, instead using locally-produced live-action segments between programs with host Mike Sobel. ITV (and thus the Sobel-hosted TDA) was at that time also available on cable in various mid-sized and smaller markets across Canada, as far away as St. John's.
