Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Floogals is an animated show starring three space aliens who have been sent to earth to explore and investigate. They 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 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 and listening. They do lots of note taking until they have figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe. This program airs on the main digital stream.

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 of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up when you have made a mess, rebound from a failure or an embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes. This program airs on the main digital program stream.

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. 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 and duties 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. This program airs on the main digital stream.
