Ponkickies (ポンキッキーズ) is a Japanese children's variety television series broadcast by Fuji TV.[1] In total, there were 3 versions of the program: the first version was broadcast from October 1, 1993 to March 31, 2001 in Fuji TV and its terrestrial stations, the second period was broadcast from April 2, 2005 to March 25, 2006, and the third period was broadcast on BS Fuji from April 2, 2017 to March 25, 2018.


"Hirake! Ponkikki", which was broadcast for 20 and a half years from April 1973 to September 1993, has undergone a major renewal on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the start of broadcasting. With Yoshikazu Obata, who was the producer of "Kuni-chan's unprecedented TV", from "Hirake!", Which was mainly preschool education, the target age for viewing is elementary school students and above for the purpose of communication between generations. In addition to expanding to, it started under the name of "Comprehensive Kids Entertainment Program" that incorporates modern sense and entertainment colors into each corner, animation, and characters. Regular and guest performers are diverse, including actors, musicians, laughter, cultural figures, and the sports world, and the songs used are mainly for a wide range of age groups by famous musicians (audio was also changed from monaural broadcasting to stereo broadcasting). There were many entertainers who gained widespread popularity from children to adults as a result of this program, and for them it was also a program that should be called a successful work.

However, the drastic changes in the program content were confusing to parents with infants. In addition, due to the programming circumstances of TV stations and changes in the lifestyles of children, the broadcast time zone was changed and the content was renewed several times (Especially in the first period, the broadcasting time fluctuated drastically, and depending on the time, it went back and forth between the morning time zone and the evening time zone.) In the latter half of terrestrial broadcasting, the broadcasting time was reduced due to the declining birthrate and the policy of TV stations focusing on morning information programs. Although the broadcasting time was reduced due to such factors, satellite broadcasting and content broadcasting and distribution on the website were started as the times changed.
