Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Earth to Luna is a Brazilian animated series specifically aimed at teaching 2-5 year old children how to ask questions about nature and science and vigorously pursue the answers. The show encourages curiosity, research, and critical thinking. Each episode of the show is focused on a particular creature, object, or phenomenon that would be of interest to the target audience. For example, Luna might wonder how she can grow a plant without a seed and finds the answer through her inquiry process. The characters, Luna, Jupiter (her brother), and Clive (their pet ferret) embark on a research effort that takes the audience through each step that answers their overarching question. The show uses recurring features, signature phrases, and songs to cue the audience when they need to do research, when they transition to the adventure, and when they have reached the ending to review all they've learned.

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.

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.

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 that include 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. 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.
