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.

Nina's World is an animated show based on a six-year-old Latina, who lives in San Antonio, Texas with her parents, who own the local bakery, and her Abuela (grandmother).

Nina's best friend is Star, a stuffed starfish pillow character brought to life by Nina's imagination. Each episode features Nina taking on a challenge, solving a problem, or finding a way to help others. She is very confident about her abilities, which sometimes gets her into trouble. However, with encouragement and chiding from Abuela, Nina learns about how to plan her "work," take responsibility for her actions, and correct her mistakes.

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. Floogals is an animated show staring three space aliens; Fleeker, Flo, and Boomer - who have been sent to earth to explore, investigate, discover and report their findings to their superiors at Floogal headquarters. The diminutive Floogals are no taller than a large safety pin and their visual perspective is literally the point of view of the show. With the multiple challenges of their size and ignorance of all things Hooman (that's Floogal-speak for human), the Floogals have a lot of work on their hands. They are engaged in the dual processes of discovery and problem-solving as nothing on earth is familiar to them. Much like young children, they begin by encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi-step process of watching, listening, touching, and note-taking until they've figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe.

What most of us ignore, Luna notices and cannot rest until she is able to answer the question, "Why is this happening?" There is nothing Luna won't do to find the answers to her scientific questions.

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. Noodle and Doodle, an instructional series, features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. 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. The Chica Show features a five-year-old "baby" 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 inter-personal 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 education 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.
