Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is a live-action show hosted by Sean Roach that also blends animation and puppetry into the overall format. Sean drives a double-decker bus into various communities to meet children who have written to him with a problem that they would like to solve using art and/or a food experience. Sean is accompanied by Noodle, a puppet character and Doodle, a digital character that lives inside a tablet computer, and Doggity, a faithful beagle. Doggity has a mini-show of his own through an animated alter-ego that appears during diversionary segments in a restaurant kitchen operated by Doggity and other canines. The show demonstrates how recycled materials can become art and how food art, and problem solving can be combined to create a fun experience in everyday living. Every episode can be replicated at home with ease by parents and children playing together.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is a show that is all about health, fitness, and being good friends. Set in a fantasy world known as Lazy Town, which is populated by inactive residents, we see a visitor named Stephanie determined to coax her friends and relatives to begin healthful, active living. She wins over her new friends, Ziggy, Stingy, Trixie and Pixel, to leave their gaming consoles and candy stashes at home so they can go outside and play. She gets her Uncle, the Mayor and his friend Ms. Busy Body to support her efforts. But all of them are constantly foiled by Robbie Rotten, who lives underground and is determined to send Lazy Town back to inactivity and quiet. Coming to the rescue is the athlete Sportacus who lives in a spaceship and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help. Sportacus has two goals, to keep the peace and to promote healthful, positive living. When Robbie Rotten is discovered and contained through comic pratfalls, he goes back to his underground lair and all is well in Lazy Town, until another day and another time when Robbie will rise again.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is all about teaching bedtime routines and practicing them so children can get a good night's sleep. In each episode one of the main characters-Apollo the dog, Squacky, the duck, SweetPea Sue, a horse and Cowbella, a purple and white cow-has a problem either with sleeping or with facing a problem. They all pile onto one of the beds and are whisked off to a land of adventure that offers solutions to their problems. Each bed goes to a specific place for the adventure: Squacky's bed goes to Eliie the octopus who lives in the Big Blue Sea and to Coach Whistler who lives in Land of Play; Cowbella's bed goes to Edwin, who lives in Storybook LanD and to Jerry Bear, who lives in the Big Friendly Forest; Apollo's bed goes to the Moon who is in the Night Sky, and SweetPea Sue's bed goes to Mr. Happy Birthday, a porcupine who resides in Birthday Land, and Bedtimes Bunny who lives in the Land of Hush. Each show ends with the problem resolved and the Pajanimals tucked into their beds for a good night's rest.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the Poppy Cat's Adventures book series authored and illustrated by Lara Jones. A narrator, also named Lara, reads a story to her cat in each episode. This story stars her Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmation who zips around on a skateboard; Alma, a southern belle bunny who is ultra feminine and sweetly dramatic, Mo, a little mouse who tries his best to do as much as everyone else despite his size; Owl, the wise one who is prone to neck rolls and commentary when things irritate him or don't make sense. The grouchy Egbert, a badger who is both a snob and a bully refuses to play with the group and invariably attempts to sabotage their adventures. Occasionally Hilda, a forgetful and ditzy pigeon who flies into their adventures, appears to say hello or provide misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. With the end of her story Lara closes her book and says good bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is an animated show specifically directed to the preschool audience and always conveys an embedded lesson that it is possible to understand and master any problem you have by thinking about it creatively. Justin is a little boy who has two imaginary playmates, Olivia and Squidgy the sponge (who also lives in Justin's bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesn't want to do something his mother has suggested, he daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to places all around the world. This is where he meets Olivia who guides him through an experience that demonstrates to Justin how he can solve his problem. The show provides many facts about the context the characters visit while on the adventure, but the central point is to teach a lesson about a socio-emotional dilemma universally experienced by preschool children.

Sean drives a double-decker bus into various communities to meet children who have written to him with a problem that they would like to solve using art and/or a food experience. Sean is accompanied by Noodle, a puppet character and Doodle, a digital character that lives inside a tablet computer, and Doggity, a faithful beagle. Doggity has a mini-show of his own through an animated alter-ego that appears during diversionary segments in a restaurant kitchen operated by Doggity and other canines. The show demonstrates how recycled materials can become art and how food art, and problem solving can be combined to create a fun experience in everyday living. Every episode can be replicated at home with ease by parents and children playing together.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is all about teaching bedtime routines and practicing them so children can get a good night's sleep. In each episode one of the main characters-Apollo the dog, Squacky, the duck, SweetPea Sue, a horse and Cowbella, a purple and white cow-has a problem either with sleeping or with facing a problem. They all pile onto one of the beds and are whisked off to a land of adventure that offers solutions to their problems. Each bed goes to a specific place for the adventure: Squacky's bed goes to Eliie the octopus who lives in the Big Blue Sea and to Coach Whistler who lives in Land of Play; Cowbella's bed goes to Edwin, who lives in Storybook LanD and to Jerry Bear, who lives in the Big Friendly Forest; Apollo's bed goes to the Moon who is in the Night Sky, and SweetPea Sue's bed goes to Mr. Happy Birthday, a porcupine who resides in Birthday Land, and Bedtimes Bunny who lives in the Land of Hush. Each show ends with the problem resolved and the Pajanimals tucked into their beds for a good night's rest.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the Poppy Cat's Adventures book series authored and illustrated by Lara Jones. A narrator, also named Lara, reads a story to her cat in each episode. This story stars her Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmation who zips around on a skateboard; Alma, a southern belle bunny who is ultra feminine and sweetly dramatic, Mo, a little mouse who tries his best to do as much as everyone else despite his size; Owl, the wise one who is prone to neck rolls and commentary when things irritate him or don't make sense. The grouchy Egbert, a badger who is both a snob and a bully refuses to play with the group and invariably attempts to sabotage their adventures. Occasionally Hilda, a forgetful and ditzy pigeon who flies into their adventures, appears to say hello or provide misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. With the end of her story Lara closes her book and says good bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is an animated show specifically directed to the preschool audience and always conveys an embedded lesson that it is possible to understand and master any problem you have by thinking about it creatively. Justin is a little boy who has two imaginary playmates, Olivia and Squidgy the sponge (who also lives in Justin's bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesn't want to do something his mother has suggested, he daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to places all around the world. This is where he meets Olivia who guides him through an experience that demonstrates to Justin how he can solve his problem. The show provides many facts about the context the characters visit while on the adventure, but the central point is to teach a lesson about a socio-emotional dilemma universally experienced by preschool children.
