Hooper

Hooper is the third mascot of PBS Kids, he was introduced on September 6, 2006. He is a brown guinea pig with circular glasses (similar to the ones that Arthur Read wears). Like Dash and Dot, he is a popular mascot, however, during the re-brand, some of his interstitials was still intact.

Dot, Dee, and Del

Twins Dee and Del were introduced on October 7, 2013, during the re-brand. They are Dash and Dot's new younger siblings. Their big sister, Dot is always taking care of and babysitting them and their big brother, Dash is absent from the bumpers likely since he was getting too old to be an official mascot. However, Dash, still appears in the familiar PBS Kids logo and he did make a surprising return in a Word of the Week promo.
