Have you checked out BunnyEars.Tv? I've shared posts from its Facebook page via my own, if you follow me there. You can read its manifesto and about its origins here.
The programs I love most are the ones I remember from Pinwheel. Ha, she mentioned Pinwheel again! But seriously, I did become rather obsessed with filling in those holes in my memory from my own childhood, once I had children. When you had kids, did you begin vigorously hunting down those things you loved most when you were little?
BunnyEars.tv has resurrected a few of my favorites. The Bunny With The Checkered (or Chequered) Ears is very dear to me. I never forgot the opening of those cartoons. I jumped for joy when I found the official website one day. Using the original Hungarian title ( A Kockásfülű nyúl), I was finally able to find a HUGE number of the cartoons on YouTube. The best part is my husband, who did not have cable as a kid - no Pinwheel for him! - loves these cartoons. He'll sit and watch them with Little Sis sometimes.
Bunny merchandise! Oh, how I need to travel someday.

BunnyEars.TV has also brought back another Pinwheel favorite, the strange French stop-motion Chapi Chapo. The music from this one makes me feel like I'm five years old again.
