Programmes including Art Attack, Rainbow, Count Duckula, Press Gang, The Raggy Dolls and Children’s Ward will all be broadcast.
Digital channel CiTV will screen almost nine hours of old favourites on 5th and 6th January. ITV1 will also air a documentary to celebrate the anniversary.
Jamila Metran, CiTV’s head of programming, said: “We are very proud of CiTV’s heritage and look forward to bringing back all the old favourites for this one-off, not-to-be-missed event.”
She added the weekend of repeats would “show the kids what their parents watched when they were young.”
Children’s ITV launched on 3 January 1983 with guest presenters such as Roland Rat, Basil Brush and Timmy Mallett recording introductions to programmes.
