If you've ever had a toddler who watches morning TV, you know the drill. It's likely that he or she wakes up asking begging to put on "Dora" or "Doc McStuffins" or "Sesame Street" or whatever his or her jam may be that particular week. And while we've heard varying levels of desperation in our kids' little voices, this child's plea for entertainment might win an award.

Luckily for andyhappy, new research finds that children's TV can actually have a positive impact on their behavior -- as long as parents pay attention to what their kids are watching, not just how many hours they're parked in front of the television. And luckily for you, readers, there are plenty of lesser-known kids' TV shows that adults might enjoy, too. Here are ten that we recommend:
