Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Aired on main channel) 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 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 animal is used for bone grafts? Why do zebras have stripes and leopards spots? Are bats birds? Are whales fish? Are insects animals?

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Aired on main channel) Astroblast!, based on the book series "Astroblast!" 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 3-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 embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.

Sean's side-kick, Doggity, is an everfaithful 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. (Aired on main channel) Chica is a five-year-old 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 educational 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.

See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Ruff-Ruff, Tweet and Dave and Astroblast were both pre-empted on June 4, 2016 due to coverage of the French Open tennis and not rescheduled. All other children's shows on that day on our main channel were played earlier in the day as noted. We had one schedule for our Children's Programming from 4/1 - 4/23 and then adjusted the schedule for the remainder (except for June 4) of the quarter.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Astroblast!, based on the book series "Astroblast!" 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 3-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 embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.

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 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.

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.

Terrific Trucks is a live-action series that follows the exploits of five self-driving, heavy-duty construction trucks. They include Tork, the dump truck, Stotz, the flatbed, Dug, the digger, Blinker, the mini-digger, and Sparky, the front-end loader. The trucks reside in a fully equipped truck yard/rock quarry and work as a team on various building projects that require planning, collaboration and implementation. Each truck brings specific skills to the group. They get challenging job assignments from Mr. Bill Board, a digital outdoor screen that outlines and diagrams the problem to be solved. By allocating the role each truck will perform during the project, the group merges those unique skills to fulfill their respective assignments. Unexpected problems that could compromise their success-- such as the weather, broken truck parts, or personal conflicts between the trucks--- are addressed and overcome so the job can be completed.
