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 ever-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. In every episode, Kelly, Chica, Mr. C and Mrs. C tend to what the customer at the Costume Coop that episode needs. Things often go wrong in this part due to Chica, so Kelly tries to teach Chica the lesson of the episode. Then, the cuckoo clock (which is shaped like Mr. C,) goes off and Kelly said to Chica, The Coop Is Closing, But We're Not Done. Let's Lock Up The Shop, And Have More Fun. and Mr. and Mrs. C lock up the Coop while singing a song. After, two eggs with legs hop out of the cuckoo clock and Kelly, Chica, Stitches, and Bunji turn into cartoon characters. Then, Kelly says "Time to dress up and play!" and the cartoon segment is shown, demonstrating the lesson that Chica learned.

Number of Preemptions Rescheduled 2
Length of Program 30 mins
Age of Target Child Audience 5 years to 8 years
Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. LAZYTOWN promotes fitness and healthy 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.
