Noggin (now known as "Nick Jr.") was a mix between Nickelodeon and the Children's Television Workshop. Noggin's programming was originally targeted primarily at pre-teens from 1999 to 2002, although a few programs airing on the channel were aimed at preschoolers. It's mascot was a strange pickle mascot named "Phred".

Due to low ratings, on April 1, 2002, Noggin's format was changed, shifting it's target audience to preschoolers full time. That same day, Viacom launched the N, a teenage oriented program block that targeted an older audience and featured programming edgier in content than what Noggin or Nickelodeon would usually allow. Noggin and The N had to share times together. Following up a sign out message, Noggin had then introduced us to Feetface.

Noggin's last day of the "Feetface" era signed off at 6:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 6, 2003 with the last show of the "Feetface" era to air on that day was Little Bear, right before the last Feetface footage. After that, it showed a sneak preview at the new Moose A. Moose and Zee mascots, followed by the last goodbyes to everyone on Noggin, the 2002-2003 "Feetface" mascot, the last Noggin station ID, followed by the schedule to The N's Sunday programming. At 6:00 a.m. ET on Monday, April 7, 2003, Noggin introduced the new Moose A. Moose and Zee mascots, and they hosted their shows and segments.

On February 24, 2009, Nickelodeon announced that Noggin and The N were to be rebranded as Nick Jr. and TeenNick to bring both channels in line with the Nickelodeon brand identity.
