Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Hello. I'm the host and producer of "Noodle and Doodle," which can be seen on Sprout and NBC in the U.S.A., and on other networks around the world. On "Noodle and Doodle" I lead real preschoolers and viewers at home in making all kinds of nutritional recipes and kid-friendly crafts that families can create together using materials from around the home. I do it with my loveable puppet friend, Noodle, and Doodle, my digital drawing pad. All of the cooking and crafting takes place inside a whimsical double-decker bus where my helpers and I demonstrate step-by-step "how to" creations in an engaging, simple way that families can easily recreate.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pets focuses on the everyday lives of four anthropomorphic animals and their dysfunctional interactions with each other. They live in a filthy, rundown house, although it has working electricity and running water. There is never a human owner visible or even evident. The episodes are self-contained, and set entirely within the house. Most of the events that take place tend to be surreal, contain strong elements of black comedy and off-colour humour, and frequently make references to pop culture subjects. Pets also follows a rather traditional sitcom technique by using a "reset button". Each of the Pets have died at least once, only to reappear alive and well in the next episode. Events from previous episodes are never referred to, but unseen events from the past are often mentioned.
