Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. NOODLE AND DOODLE is an instructional series that features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. The show is hosted by Sean, who drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies, and a kitchen, all ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something for display in the child's home. Sean is accompanied by Doggity, an every-faithful Beagle dog, who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe and kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. While the show will be enjoyed by preschoolers, the projects are also very practical and engaging to implement for children ages 5-8. The art projects typically feature lessons on recycling materials for re-use in making art and always demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something useful to achieve a completely different goal.

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. Five animal characters and one three-eyed octopus of unknown derivation populate the station. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament needing a solution. While these predicaments take place in a fantasy environment, 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 when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or an embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.

In each episode Luna and her brother develop questions about whatever they find curious, e.g., "What goes on inside the snails' shell?" or "Why does a firefly blink?" In pursuit of answers, Luna, Jupiter and Clyde go off on an imaginary adventure to do their research. They transform into the object or creature they are studying so they can personally experience the answers to their questions. When the threesome is finished with the "field trip" Luna summarizes everything they have learned with a show and a song.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. LAZYTOWN promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, LazyTown, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in LazyTown, where her uncle is Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of LazyTown is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete, who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of LazyTown is to eat "sports candy'" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games and holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.
