Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Designed to encourage healthy eating and exercise, LazyTown is a mix of live and animated characters that come to life in an energetic and colorful world motivating kids through play to be active and make positive life choices. Seen exclusively in the U.S. on Sprout (and soon to be on NBC Kids), LazyTown is the fictional home of Sportacus, Stephanie, Trixie, Pixel, Ziggy, Stingy and Robbie Rotten. The four puppet characters - Ziggy, Pixel, Stingy and Trixie - represent some of the challenges all kids face in daily life: making healthy choices, sharing, making friends, and more. Sportacus is the larger-than-life action hero, who is the flipside of Robbie Rotten, representing positive and negative approaches to life. Stephanie is visiting LazyTown and her enthusiasm about making healthy choices helps pull it all together. LazyTown takes the important lessons of eating right and exercising and makes them simple and fun for both parents and preschoolers. At Sprout, our programming has always been about inspiring parent-child interaction through unique, learning-based entertainment, so LazyTown was the perfect addition to the network's gold-standard line-up and also for NBC Kids, which was designed to address the development needs of 2-5 year-olds through educational series that promote active, healthy lifestyles for younger children.
