Canadian animated television series Max and Ruby is the number one preschool series on commercial television in 2010, says Nickelodeon. It beat Team Umizoomi, Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!, and Ni Hao, Kai-lan, which take spots 2 through 5.

The irony in it all? Wikipedia claims that the show was cancelled, airing its last new episode in May, having aired episodes since 2002. The series is produced by Toronto animation studio Nelvana, albeit based on books by a New Jersey author who also created Timothy Goes to School.
The premiere of Dino Dan on October 17, starring Jason Spevack, scored 777,000 viewers, the channel's highest rated original series premiere, ever. Dino Dan is produced by Toronto's Sinking Ship Productions. The series airs on TVO Kids in Ontario.
