Get ready to say goodbye to 'Good Luck Charlie' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Big changes are afoot for the Duncan family. Oldest sister Teddy is heading off to college. Youngest sister Charlie is developing a feisty personality. And their show itself is wrapping up for good — Sunday, Feb. 16 marks Good Luck Charlie‘s series finale.

Naturally, the hourlong event will be filled with teary eyes, hugs — and, of course, plenty of gentle jokes. All three have a place in this exclusive clip from the series’s last episode, which finds the Duncans sitting down for Teddy’s last breakfast at home. Warning: You might just find yourself getting misty as well.

Everyone’s favorite monkey is returning to TV screens with a new season of Curious George.

Carol Burnett guest stars in the season premiere as Curious George’s Great Aunt Sylvia, who is coming for a visit.

As Great Aunt Sylvia explains, “I drove the real thing when I was in construction.” She gets a loving hug as a thank you, but later they discover the front loader is defective. Keeping with its educational theme, the show then follows George and Sylvia as they try to figure out how to fix the toy.

'Ravenswood' finale react: Hanna's back, (some) mysteries solved

“It’s complicated” might as well be the tagline for this series. No one on the show seems to know how to explain, well, anything, and that kind of makes sense: Ravenswood is one crazy place. And since tonight was the season finale, Ravenswood is (somehow) even crazier than usual. Or as Caleb would tell us, “it’s complicated.”

Hanna returns to Ravenswood for a surprise visit. Why didn’t she call Caleb? Because she likes surprises, duh. Caleb broke up with her, so the real reason she came was to beat up Miranda who she thinks is The Other Woman. When Caleb breaks the news to her that Miranda is dead, and better yet, that he can still see Miranda, she is bewildered. Maybe you don’t like surprises as much as you thought, Hanna! What makes the scene creepy– because this is Ravenswood, after all– is that halfway through the conversation between Hanna and Caleb, Miranda appears. “She thinks you’re crazy,” she tells Caleb. He takes the cue: “You know, for a while, I thought that I might be crazy, but I’m not.” Real convincing, Caleb.

This is hard for Hanna to hear. She was the one who told Caleb to stay in Ravenswood and take care of Miranda. Then she thought he was in love with Miranda. And now she finds out Miranda is dead. At this point, she’s back to liking Miranda and the urge to beat her up has subsided. Instead, she talks to Miranda, meaning she sits in an empty room and rambles on to seemingly no one. She explains why she thought Caleb was in love with the now-ghost, and Miranda hears this and gets excited. Miranda’s affection for Caleb is tough to watch because it’s not like she’s actively trying to take Caleb from Hanna– she likes Hanna and seems to want them to be together. I feel bad for her, but also am Team Hanna and Caleb Forever, so I don’t feel too bad.

Benedict Cumberbatch faces his Muppet nemesis on 'Sesame Street' -- VIDEO

Who’s even more dastardly than the wicked Moriarty? That’d be Murray-arty, the Muppet alter ego who challenges Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch to solve a tricky mystery in the following clip: Does the table before them have more apples on it, or more oranges? (Turns out you can compare the two.) Because Cumberbatch, of course, isn’t really Sherlock Holmes — sorry to wreck the fantasy, guys! — he has to call in an expert to get the job done: Sesame Street‘s very own Count.

Can their combined brainpower crack the case? Find out by watching the Internet’s new favorite video below.

First clip from 'The Pirate Fairy': Christina Hendricks is mixing something magical -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

What if Joan Holloway Harris morphed into a spunky brunette fairy? Well, she’d sound something like Never Land resident Zarina — a winged dust-keeper voiced by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks.

Zarina is the star of Disney’s upcoming straight-to-Blu-ray film The Pirate Fairy, which follows the titular sprite’s adventures after she decides to ditch Pixie Hollow for a pirate ship — and gets to know a two-handed cabin boy named James who will one day be known as Captain Hook. Also: He’s voiced by Tom Hiddleston. It’s like the Internet wrote this movie.

Catch your first glimpse at Zarina in action by watching this exclusive clip, in which Z shows Tinker Bell (Arrested Development‘s Mae Whitman) her mad dust-mixing skills. Bet she’d also make a killer fairy martini if pressed.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': Who is that masked man? Why, it's Casey Jones! EXCLUSIVE

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns to Nickelodeon with all-new episodes on Feb. 2, as well as a nice surprise for old-school TMNT fans: Recurring Turtle ally Casey Jones is going full masked vigilante.

In the original 1987 animated series, Jones was a violent, Rorschach-esque crime fighter who treated murderers and litterbugs with equal equal disdain and never removed his iconic hockey mask. Nickelodeon’s slightly kinder, gentler Casey is a pal of April O’Neil’s who speaks with Josh Peck’s voice and generally prefers to show his face — at least, until he decides it’s time to take a stand against “pure evil” in Sunday’s episode, titled “The Good, The Bad, and Casey Jones.”

Watch Casey in action in the clip below, which also features his reluctant partner Raphael (Sean Astin) — and some seriously impressive subway rail-skating. Cowabunga!

The future of edutainment is now: On Feb. 3, Nickelodeon debuts a new preschool literacy series called Wallykazam! The show, created by Emmy-winning writer Adam Petlzman (Blue’s Clues, The Backyardigans) follows a troll named Wally and his pet dragon, Norville, as they make words come to life onscreen — teaching little ones skills like letter and sound identification, rhyming, vocabulary development and comprehension strategies. It’s also pretty darn cute — and as a bonus for parents, the series’ first season will also include guest turns by stars like “Weird Al” Yankovic, Seinfeld‘s John O’Hurley, and SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer.

Catch a glimpse of the show — and one very Minion-like hamster — in the exclusive clip below.

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Get a glimpse at Discord's very first solo! EXCLUSIVE

Gird yourselves, Equestrians: This week on My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, Discord is back. This time, though, the onetime villain is relatively benign — he’s suffering from a bad case of the sniffles, and all he wants is for Twilight Sparkle to take care of him. She agrees… but naturally starts to regret that decision once Discord begins making a series of increasingly ridiculous demands. Like what? Discord is glad you asked — and happy to answer in song:
