Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat based on a book series by Lara Jones, models the use of imagination and storytelling to encourage creative thinking in viewers. Each episode features the narrator Lara, reading a story about Poppy Cat, to her own cat (who is also named Poppy). She weaves an exciting tale following her imagination, which leads her to distant lands reached by boat, plane, hot air balloon or train. Each story features Poppy Cat as the leader of a group of animal friends, including the resident bully Egbert the badger, and other occasionally recurring characters. A prevailing message emerges within each episode to be nice to your friends and always work together. There remains an overarching implicit message within every episode as well; think creatively and exercise your mind through reading and storytelling - for these activities always lead to enjoyment and adventure.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Clangers is a beloved British series that was originally conceived by Oliver Postgate in 1969 and has been reconceived and invigorated by his son, Daniel Postgate. The show features the Clanger family, small mouse-like creatures that live on Clanger Planet far away from Earth. The members of the family are presented with many unusual challenges that become the center of a dilemma that must be resolved within each episode. Strange visitors arrive out of nowhere and Clangers have to figure out who the visitors really are and why they are on Clanger Planet. Sometimes they need to help or rescue someone who has become lost on the planet. Other times, they are trying to understand outer space: meteors and comets and eclipses of the sun or moon. Each member of the family has a forte', from playing music to knitting or gardening or inventing equipment that comes in handy for some of the problem solving that takes place.

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. Astroblast!, based on the book series by author and illustrator Bob Kolar, is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. The station is populated by five animal characters and one three-eyed octopus of unknown derivation. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament of some sort needing a solution. While these predicaments take place on a space station populated by animal characters and aliens from different galaxies, the issues and resolutions resonate for a preschool audience. Through comedy and zippy action, our target audience sees how the characters learn lessons for practical living such as how to keep track of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up a space when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or an embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.
