The 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.

Strange visitors arrive out of nowhere and the Clangers have to figure out who 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. LazyTown is a show featuring the importance of health, fitness, and being good friends. Set in a fantasy world known as LazyTown, which is populated by inactive residents, we meet a visitor named Stephanie who is determined to coax her friends and relatives into adopting a healthful, active life style. She wins over her new friends, Ziggy, Stingy, Trixie, and Pixel, convincing them to leave their gaming consoles and candy stashes at home so they can go outside and play. She persuades her uncle, Mayor Milford Meanswell, and his friend Ms. Busy Body to support her efforts. Robbie Rotten, who lives underground, and is determined to return to LazyTown to its former state of inactivity and quiet, constantly foils the characters' efforts. The athlete Sportacus lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help. He frequently comes to their rescue. Sportacus has two goals, to keep the peace and to promote healthful, positive living. When Robbie Rotten is discovered and contained through comic pitfalls, he returns to his underground lair and all is well in LazyTown, until another day and another time when Robbie will rise again. The program airs on the station's main digital channel.

Astroblast is the space station and home of six animal characters in Bob Kolar's book series of the same name. The space station is managed by an over confident and exuberant commander, Comet the Dog.

While the space station supports the missions of a bizarre and diverse array of aliens, the Smoothie Shack is the hub of social interaction for the galaxy. There is always something happening at Astroblast, and everyone on the crew has plenty to learn to keep the community happy and on an even keel.

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 embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes. This program airs on the station's main digital channel.
