Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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 a strange land with pillows everywhere; just the sort of place where imagination and logic come together. The settings are always brightly colored and beautiful. Their transport vehicles are Roly-pods, artful go-carts that fit on a spiral ramp that folds in and out of the Spin-Again, colorful round spinning top with special compartments designed to anchor each vehicle right on the outside rim during the journey.

Features a 5 year old baby chick that spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. In each episode Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve.

She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure 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, 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. 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.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Coolest Places on Earth at 9:30a and Awesome Adventures at 10:00a were both preempted from the main channel on 6/12/16 due to live, breaking news coverage of the tragedy in Orlando. One or more episodes of children's programming that was preempted during the quarter was not rescheduled. The Digital Core Programming Summary section of the report would not permit the station to include preemption reports for such unrescheduled preemptions, and FCC Staff has advised that no preemption report for such unrescheduled episodes is necessary.
