Sid with his parents, brother and grandma.

Sid the Science Kid is a preschool television series produced by The Jim Henson Company in association with KCET Los Angeles. The show features real-time computer-generated puppets, using the Henson Digital Performance System. Production began in the fall of 2007 with 40 half-hour episodes of Sid the Science Kid having been ordered. The series debuted on PBS Kids on September 1, 2008[1], with a two-year on-air commitment.[2]

The main character in the show is Sid, an "inquisitive youngster" who uses comedy to tackle questions kids have about basic scientific principals and why things work the way they do. He tries to answer questions and solve problems with the help of his classmates (Gabriela, May and Gerald), his teacher (Susie), his parents (Alice and Mort), his Grandma and even his baby brother (Zeke).

Two DVDs of the show, The Bug Club and Change Happens, were released in August 2009[3]; while a more DVDs are slated for release in 2009 and 2010.[4] In August 2009, the first ten episodes of season one were added to The iTunes Store.

Content and structure

The conceptual content of Sid is based in national science learning standards, cognitive learning theory, and on the preschool science curriculum, Preschool Pathways to Science.[5]

Each week's episodes are built around a single scientific theme or concept, such as scientific tools and concepts, changes and transformation, the senses, and health. The Friday shows are designed to review, reinforce and summarize the central concept of the week.

One recurring segment, "Good Laughternoon", features the kids opening panels in a brightly-colored playground structure and telling jokes. The format and set borrow heavily from the closing "joke wall" of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, but for a pre-school audience. Other recurring segment include The Sid Survey, Rug Time, The Super Fab Lab, Susie sings, and Sid's "super-duper-schmoper" big idea. On rare occasions, Sid invites a friend over, mainly Gabriela, to play with him, such as in the episodes The Rolie Polie, My Ice Pops!, A Brush With Teeth, and Home Tweet Home.

History and development

Sid the Science Kid was developed by Halle Stanford and Jim Lewis. The initial concept was to create a show to teach science concepts to pre-school kids. The series went into production in the fall of 2007.

Jim Lewis discussed his role in the creation of Sid the Science Kid in a 2008 interview, stating:

I was the first guy in. I worked with an executive at Henson, someone I've worked with for years, Halle Stanford. They had an idea there for a science program – basically a pre-science, I forget what the exact term was, but it was to teach science concepts to pre-school kids... My involvement in that was I helped developed the show. I basically got it up to the point where it was sold to KCET, which is the public television station in Los Angeles... When they actually wanted to go into production, I realized I'm too old for this, I don't want to be a show runner – it's a lot of work. So I found someone that Halle and I had both worked with, Bradley Zweig, an enormously talented writer whose worked on a variety of things, I'm sure you can look up on imdb. He's very funny and has just the right sensibility and he's a lot younger than me, and more willing to work brutal hours for the 18-months it takes to do that kind of thing. And he ran the show and executive produced it with Brian and Lisa and Halle. And I wrote a few scripts, you know, and I feel part of it's my baby – but they deserve all the credit.[6]

The original working title for the series was "What's the Big Idea?" and the central character, Sid, was originally named Josh.[7]

Sid's personality was originally based on executive producer Halle Stanford's son Max.[8]

The initial conceptual designs for the characters were completed by Elanna Allen, while Creature Shop Creative Supervisor Peter Brooke ensured that the original concepts and designs were translated into the 3D world of the Henson Digital Performance Studio. Brooke sculpted detailed maquettes of the characters to help translate the designs into three dimentions.

On the Halo 2 map, Coagulation, there is a hidden message much like the "Why Am I Here" message in the Beaver Creek level of Halo 2. Messages like these can be found in many maps, such as Sanctuary. The message in Sanctuary is behind the water. Not "Sid" with the initials CMP and the number '10' in tally marks.

Directions

Go into the cave systems above where the Overshield/Active Camoflauge spawns, and in the arch/window look to your left and you will see a message in the rock that says "Not Sid Was Here" If you look further to the edge the word, "Not" can be seen, making the message "Not Sid Was Here Not".

(Redirected to Sid and Seth article)

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Sid and Seth are humans from the Armada portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.
Seth is really celebratory over the idea of getting out of there.

Sid is a mean, aggressive pre-teen who spends his time torturing small animals. Seth is his lanky little yes-man who hides behind his buddy's bulk when shouting insults. They love to bully total nerds, so living in Science City must be like Christmas for them. Of the two, Sid is clearly the more dominant, pushing Seth around nearly as much as he does his actual targets.

They attend the same school as the crass-yet-good-natured Billy and Fred, their dopplegangers.

Fiction

Dreamwave Armada comics continuity

While Sid was occupied trying to kill squirrels with his Dennis the Menace-style slingshot, Seth noticed their arch enemies, nerds, trying to have a good time. As Rad, Carlos and Alexis took off in their spectacular splendiferous balloon-mobile, Sid and Seth saw it as the perfect opportunity to send those three poindexters to an early grave. Using his slingshot, Sid popped the balloons keeping the contraption afloat. As the nerdlingers (well, actually just a dummy) plummeted to their deaths, Sid made a mean-spirited quip as Seth encouraged him to make a break for it, lest the law catch onto their gruesome shenanigans.

Little did they know, their homicidal plot didn't actually kill the paste-eating dorks, but helped them to become best friends with a team of awesome super powered robots from outer space. Take that, you little sociopaths! Dreamwave Armada issue 3

Sid, known as Satake in the Japanese version. Who, along with Bonz and Zygor, is one of Bandit Keith's former henchmen.

In the Duelist Kingdom tournament, they make up Bandit Keith's henchman. Keith wanted revenge at Maximillion Pegasus for humiliating him in the final match of the Inter-Continental Championship. When Keith finds out about Yugi Mutou, Joey Wheeler, and the rest of the gang, they believe they will get in their way, and seek to eliminate them. When Joey runs away from the group towards a waterfall, Zygor beats him unconcious and he wakes up in cave with a Dueling Arena, complete with a Graveyard Field. Bonz challenges Joey to a Duel that he tricks him into thinking he must accept. Bonz has the upper hand, as his Zombie-Type monsters gain a 30% ATK and DEF bonus because of the Graveyard Field, and when they are destroyed, they just regenerate, and become even stronger from Call of the Haunted. However, when Yugi and the gang arrive, Joey manages to figure out the Zombie's main weakness and that is their DEF is 0. Using Shield & Sword to switch their ATK and DEF values, Joey wins the Duel. Bandit Keith then locks the gang in, beats up his three companions, and enters the Duelist Kingdom Finals.

Sid along with Bonz and Zygor are then seen right before the Battle City finals. The three reside in a nearby cemetary and trick people into giving up their Locator Cards. However, Yami Bakura is not intimidated by their act and challenges them to a Duel in which the winner gets all the Locator Cards, and thus goes directly to the Battle City Finals. Bakura wins in just a few moves, and then banishes them to the Shadow Realm (or Hell in the Japanese version).

Deck

It is unknown what sort of deck that Sid had. His only confirmed card in the anime is "Firewing Pegasus" it was seen on the screen of Seeker's laptop in episode 56 as he was searching for duelists and their rarest cards.
