Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Tree Fu Tom is a live action/animated series about a little boy who lives in a rural area and has a rich fantasy life in the woods behind his home. Tom uses specific movements to summon up magic powers that permit him to morph into an animated hero and fly around in Treetopolis, the fantasy version of his woods. While in Treetopolis, Tom and his friends, Ariella, Twigs, Squirmturn and Zigzoo will invariably run into a problem or disaster that needs fixing. Tom calls upon the audience to practice original dance moves that will bring him "Big World" magic so he and his friends can resolve their challenge of the day. Educational messages reinforce positive socio-emotional content, with examples that model: being loyal to good friends, knowing how to ask for help, doing the right thing instead of what is convenient, making the effort to share rather than being selfish, or relying on teamwork in order to accomplish a goal. THIS PROGRAM AIRS ON THE MAIN DIGITAL STREAM.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Pajanimals are four preschool aged puppets who live together in a house with their off-screen parents. Each night at bedtime the Pajanimals go through the rituals of getting ready for bed such as brushing their teeth and once tucked into bed, one of the characters brings up a problem, concern or issue. The characters then embark on an imaginary adventure to resolve whatever came up, such as shyness, making a new friend or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help the Pajanimals work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure and the Pajanimals return home confident and ready to face the issue when awake.
