Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Noodle and Doodle" is an instructional series that features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. The show is hosted by Sean, who drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, all ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something for display in the child's home. Sean is accompanied by Doggity, an ever-faithful Beagle dog, who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe and kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. While the show will be enjoyed by pre-schoolers, the projects are very practical and engaging to implement for children ages 5-8.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Pajanimals" are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in a house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nightime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off to sleep. The quiet time always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated during the adventure and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow. The program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children 2-5, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, regularly scheduled between 7a and 10p and is identified on air as educational and informational, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.
