2002 saw the launch of this dedicated channel, often referred to as 'the CBBC Channel' to distinguish it from the programming strands on BBC One and Two. In late 2012 those strands ended on One and Two for the last time.
Much of CBBC's programming is light drama, but comedies include the multi-award-winning sketch show Horrible Histories.

Episode 5 - Escape From Azkabash
Dennis must escape detention and Bash Street School to make the Beanotown Brawny Bean Race before Walter wins it. With the help of a note placed in his desk, he must sneak past Mrs Creecher and make a run for it - unless the mysterious note giver stops him first.
Episode 24 - I, Clawdia
When the gang's sausages go missing, and they discover gnashed bicycle wheels and one of Gnasher's teeth, it seems like there's only one suspect. But Dennis refuses to believe that Gnasher is to blame. Gnasher realises he's being set up by Clawdia, Walter's ultra sneaky cat, and has to find a way to prove his innocence.
