NOTE: Do not put in the Bad Qualities section, that Encontro com Fátima Bernardes killed and permanently cancelled TV Globinho in 2012, which is not true, since the program continued to air only in Saturdays until 2015. And there were exhibitions on Globo Internacional until 2017 showing only Brazilian cartoons.
TV Globinho was a Brazilian children's television program produced and shown by Rede Globo. The program was shown on the channel's mornings between July 3, 2000 and August 1, 2015. It focused on showing cartoons. It was initially shown as a sketch within the Bambuluá with Angélica program from Monday to Friday; shortly after the end of the program and with high ratings, it became an independent program and started airing from Monday to Saturday at 9:30 AM, then broadcast only on Saturdays from June 23, 2012, to give place to the program Encontro com Fátima Bernardes. Many famous presenters went through the program such as: Marina Ruy Barbosa, Letícia Colin, Geovanna Tominaga, Fernanda Pontes, Flávia Rubim, Mariah Rocha, Letícia Navas, Emílio Eric Surita and Paulo Mathias Jr. TV Globinho was responsible for bringing to Brazil some of the successful cartoons and series such as: Dragon Ball Z, Digimon, Jackie Chan Adventures, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Beyblade, Spider-Man, Power Rangers, as well as classic cartoons like Mickey and Donald, Dungeons & Dragons and The Simpsons.
