Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [32.1] Oscar, in the role of his alter-ego, Nanoboy, harnesses and uses the power of science and technology to save his world from the meanest and ugliest villains around. In doing so, he teaches target viewers the elements of science and enticingly demonstrates how knowledge can be used to solve difficult problems and meet important aims. This learning becomes all the more impactful because young viewers can readily relate to Oscar. He's bright and fun-loving, and like all kids, he's not perfect. Oscar is small for his age, athletically challenged, and perhaps even a bit nerdy. But when Oscar and his friends are faced with peril, Oscar magically transforms from "every-kid" into amazing Nanoboy. Through observation, viewers gain the motivation to use learning, knowledge, and action to transform themselves to meet challenges in their own lives. The general learning goal and discrete educational objectives are fully integrated with the story-line, characters and settings that make up "Nanoboy." By focusing on Nanoboy's challenges and the amazing ways he meets them, the series provides young viewers with a non-threatening arena from which to observe and learn from the actions of others. Learning is natural, captivating and becomes part of the overall fun and excitement of the series.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [32.3 - This TV] Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside. After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Due to the end of analog on 6/12/09, KRCW no longer has analog broadcasts, and therefore, the answer to 7(b) is "no." Due to a failure of the network-wide graphics box, which is responsible for keying in the "E/I" logo over all children's educational programming, THIS TV Network children's educational programs which aired on Saturday, March 23 and Sunday March 24, 2013 did not contain an "E/I" logo superimposition throughout the entirety of the programs. Each of these programs were identified by the Network as an "E/I" program to the suppliers of program guides, and each was also introduced by an announcement stating that the following program is an "E/I" program. However, due to the graphics error the "E/I" logo failed to appear as a superimposition over each of the programs for the full duration of all program segments. THIS TV Network has informed us that this inadvertent error has been corrected. In addition, these same program episodes were aired in a rebroadcast, in their respective second home. These rebroadcasts were publicized by announcements on THIS TV Network, and the "E/I" logo was superimposed over each of the seven programs for the entire program duration in these rebroadcasts. Programs affected and their rebroadcast dates/times were: "Busy World of Richard Scarry" #40, Sa-3/30, 10-10:30a; "Wimzie's House" #104, Sa-3/30, 10:30-11a; "Wimzie's House" #105, Sa-3/30, 11-11:30a; "Country Mouse, City Mouse" #24, Sa-3/30, 11:30a-12p; "Danger Rangers" #113, Sa-3/30, 12-12:30p; "Doodlebops Rockin' Road Show" #126, F-3/29, 7-7:30a; and "Doodlebops" #312, Su-3/31, 8-8:30a.

It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside. After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.
