The Chica Show is an American children's television series based on the puppetry segments of The Sunny Side Up Show on Universal Kids, which features the chicken puppet character Chica in full episodic and animated adventures rather than the traditional continuity of The Sunny Side Up Show. The program premiered on November 24, 2012, with a preview episode airing on October 31, 2012. The program began to air as part of the NBC Kids block on Comcast sister network NBC in February 2013, and is fully compliant with E/I regulations. A second season started on July 29, 2013.
- Kelly (Kelly Vrooman) – The shopkeeper of the Costume Coop, a store selling many different costumes.
- Chica (squeaks provided by Forrest Harding) – A chicken puppet and Mr. and Mrs. C's daughter. Chica often causes problems in the live-action segments, only for Kelly to teach her a lesson and the lesson to be demonstrated in the cartoon segment. Chica's name is roughly Spanish for "girl" or the feminine version of "small".
- Bunji (voiced by John Taylor) – A bunny who likes carrots.
- Stitches (voiced by Mario Lopez) – A boy who seems to be a rag doll, and is a display in the Coop's window.
- Mr. C – A rooster who is Chica's father.
- Mrs. C (Jennifer Barnhart) – A hen who is Chica's mother. She has starred in many plays at the Coop.
- Jett (Christopher Brasfield) – A delivery man who was so fast as the jet plane.
In every episode, Kelly, Chica, Mr. C and Mrs. C tend to what the customer at the Costume Coop that episode needs. Things often go wrong in this part due to Chica, so Kelly tries to teach Chica the lesson of the episode. Then, the cuckoo clock (which is shaped like Mr. C,) goes off and Kelly tells Chica that the coop is closing, but they decided to have more fun. Afterward, Mr. and Mrs. C lock up the Coop while singing a song. After, two eggs with legs hop out of the cuckoo clock and Kelly, Chica, Stitches, and Bunji magically transform into cartoon characters. Kelly then says "Time to dress up and play!" and the cartoon segment is shown, demonstrating the lesson that Chica learned. After the cartoon, Chica and Kelly immediately pack up and leave the Coop.
