Host, Sean, drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something to display within the child's home. Sean's side-kick, Doggity, is an ever-faithful beagle who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe, set in a kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. The art projects typically promote utilizing recycled materials in order to demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something that achieves a completely different goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is a five-year-old chick who spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. In each episode Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and interpersonal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure-a fantasy transformation to animation--where Bunji and Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development, and Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town encourages fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters eating and fitness habits are linked to problem solving in their world. The lead character is Stephanie, a young girl who guides the audience through the story as she and her friends (human puppets) and her Uncle (Mayor Milford Meanswell) navigate life within Lazy Town. Robbie Rotten, the underground spy and influencer who personifies the ethos of Lazy Town, is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids have difficulty with Robbie Rotten, Sportacus, a gymnast-athlete prepared to answer any call for help, comes to the rescue from his home in a zeppelin-like aircraft that hovers over earth. The underlying themes of Lazy Town stress the importance of eating sports candy (aka fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Justin Time features a little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, providing him with an experience to help solve his problem when he returns home. Justin is accompanied by two imaginary friends throughout his adventures; Olive, a knowledgeable playmate, and Squidgy, the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Some examples of Justin's lessons involve learning that it takes focus to achieve success, our failures can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find an alternative way to achieve your goal. Justin promotes self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

Zou caters to preschoolers' sense of curiosity and adventure while teaching valuable lessons in responsibility, kindness, and ingenuity. The titular character loves his family, is a good friend, always tries his best, learns from his mistakes, and has a positive attitude even when things don't go his way. He's surrounded by caring adults -- including extended family members who live with him -- and a vibrant community of people who help each other. The show is sensitive to differences among the characters, particularly in the case of Zou's elderly great-grandmother, who walks with a cane and uses a stair lift to move between floors in the family's home.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming The Rescue Heroes are a team of ultra-emergency experts who leap into all kinds of natural and man-made disasters anytime, anywhere. They stand for teamwork, perseverance, and above all else... safety. From their headquarters that hovers above earth, they are prepared to spring into action in a matter of seconds. They do not fight the battles of good vs. evil, but instead they stand with truth and justice. They are always ready to help and always willing to learn. Former fire chief, Billy Blazes is the leader of the Rescue Heroes team and directs the team in all of their rescue efforts. Wendy Waters is the daughter of Warrant Waters, the Commander of Operations at the Rescue Heroes Command Com Space Station that orbits Earth. She has done her best to uphold the family tradition and work her way up the ranks to become Billy's second-in-command. Then there's Jake Justice, the former motorcycle cop who drives a souped-up Harley-Davidson. Ace pilot, Ariel Flyer is a veterinarian who is Billy Blaze's first call when any type of animal or wildlife is in danger. Rocky Canyon is the youngest and newest member of the Rescue Heroes. He is an accomplished mountain climber and always eager to help... a little too eager sometimes. But, this wild card often proves to be an ace in the hole. Jack Hammer is the only Rescue Hero who is a cowboy at heart. He's the group's practical joker, but Jack's also incredibly talented in the areas of architecture and engineering. The Rescue Heroes get occasional help from other team members including Roger Houston, Comet, Smokey, Bill Barker, Bob Buoy and Sam Sparks. Together, every Rescue Hero always works to protect people in danger.
