Busytown Mysteries, also known as Hurray for Huckle!,[1] is a Canadian animated television preschool series based on the books by Richard Scarry. Produced by Cookie Jar Entertainment in association with The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the series premiered in Canada on CBC Television as part of the Kids' CBC programming block on October 29, 2007. In the United States, it premiered on Disney Channel as part of the Playhouse Disney programming block on February 18, 2008. Despite the fact that the show is a Canadian production, the version airing on Kids' CBC is not entirely the same as the version airing on Playhouse Disney. As, after the credits, in the American broadcasts, the 2007 Playhouse Disney Original logo is seen under the Cookie Jar Entertainment logo, despite the fact that Busytown Mysteries is not a Playhouse Disney Original. This does not appear in the version airing on Kids' CBC; it is unknown if this was done by Cookie Jar Entertainment or by 4kids Entertainment to ensure the shows' status on Playhouse Disney.
