Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Ruff Ruff, Tweet, and Dave (RRTD) is a preschool adventure/activity show where the lead characters travel to faraway lands to have adventures with their guide, a hamster named Hatty. Ruff Ruff, the dog, is the most playful of the three; Tweet is a little bird who loves to fly and get creative with her suggestions; and Dave the Panda has a thing for bananas. RTTD might go to the beach, or the mountains, or to strange lands with pillows everywhere; just the sort of place where imagination and logic come together. The settings are always brightly colored and beautiful. And their transport vehicles are Roly-pods, artful go-carts that fit on a spiral ramp that folds in and out of the Spin-Again, a colorful round spinning top with special compartments designed to anchor each vehicle right on the outside rim during the journey.

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.

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. Whaddyado is a valuable resource for teenagers that exposes them to real life situations. The reenactments give the audience the opportunity to develop important life saving skills. By exposing the audience to perilous situations that have actually occurred, then, using interviews with the participants and instructions from experts, teenagers are shown what the proper reaction should be when faced with similar life-threatening circumstances. This show is perfectly positioned to educate its audience. It is likely that in addition to learning the life saving lessons contained in each episode, the show will also work to minimize a viewer's belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teenagers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Floogals is an animated show starring 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 Floogals 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Ruff Ruff, Tweet, and Dave (RRTD) is a preschool adventure/activity show where the lead characters travel to faraway lands to have adventures with their guide, a hamster named Hatty. Ruff Ruff, the dog, is the most playful of the three; Tweet is a little bird who loves to fly and get creative with her suggestions; and Dave the Panda has a thing for bananas. RTTD might go to the beach, or the mountains, or to strange lands with pillows everywhere; just the sort of place where imagination and logic come together. The settings are always brightly colored and beautiful. And their transport vehicles are Roly-pods, artful go-carts that fit on a spiral ramp that folds in and out of the Spin-Again, a colorful round spinning top with special compartments designed to anchor each vehicle right on the outside rim during the journey.

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 that 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, judgement, 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-educational content is primarily socio-emotional development as 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Whaddyado is a valuable resource for teenagers that exposes them to real life situations. The re-enactments give the audience the opportunity to develop important life saving skills. By exposing the audience to perilous situations that have actually occurred, then, using interviews with the participants and instructions from experts, teenagers are shown what the proper reaction should be when faced with similar life-threatening circumstances. This show is perfectly positioned to educate its audience. It is likely that in addition to learning the life saving lessons contained in each episode, the show will also work to minimize a viewer's belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teenagers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Ruff Ruff, Tweet, and Dave [RRTD] is a preschool adventure/activity show where the lead characters travel to faraway lands to have adventures with their guide, a hamster named Hatty. Ruff Ruff, the dog, is the most playful of the three; Tweet is a little bird who loves to fly and get creative with her suggestions; and Dave the Panda has a thing for bananas. RRTD might go to the beach, or the mountains, or to strange lands with pillows everywhere; just the sort of place where imagination and logic come together. The settings are always brightly colored and beautiful. And their transport vehicles are Roly-pods, artful go-carts that fit on a spiral ramp that folds in and out of the Spin-Again, a colorful round spinning top with special compartments designed to anchor each vehicle right on the outside rim during the journey.
