Kidsongs is an United States American children's media franchise which includes Kidsongs Music Video Stories on DVD and video, The Kidsongs TV Show, CDs. Kidsongs was created by producer/writer Carol Rosenstein and director Bruce Gowers of Together Again Video Productions (TAVP), both of whom are music video and television production veterans. The duo had produced and directed over 100 music videos for Kidsongs Home Video (KS) and took their idea of music videos for children to the record label. Warner Brothers funded the first video, “A Day at Old MacDonald Had a Farm’s”. Shortly thereafter, a three way partnership between TAVP, KR and View-Master Video was formed with TAVP being responsible for production and KR and View-Master responsible for distribution to video and music stores, and toy stores respectively.
