Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Howdy Doody is a 1975 series which is known to its viewers for Buffalo Bob in his cowboy attire and a cast of human characters such as Clarabell the Clown and Chief Thunderthud as well as puppets (i.e., Howdy Doody, Dilly Dally, Flub-a-Dub, etc.). Children sat on stage in the Peanut Gallery, thus making this show a forerunner of interactive programming we enjoy today. The primary value of the series is to educate and entertain elementary school-aged children. In addition, both older children and monitoring adults will find this series amusing and quite charming as Howdy Doody is a timeless character who has an interactive quality. Educationally, the series offers opportunities for parents and teachers to teach lessons related to language, character development, science, and listening skills.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Noodle and Doodle, an instructional series, features creative expression through art and cooking projects around a specific theme. Host, Sean, drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something to display within the child's home. Sean's sidekick, Doggity, is an ever-faithful beagle who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe, set in a kitchen full of prank-playing animated characters. The art projects typically promote utilizing recycled materials in order to demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something that achieves 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 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.

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--Fleeker, Flo and Boomer--who have been sent to earth to explore, investigate, 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 [that's Floogal-speak for human], 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 being by encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi-step process of watching, listening, touching and note-taking until they've figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica Show features a five-year-old "baby" chick that spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy-eared rabbit, and stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. In each episode, Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure--a fantasy transformation to animation--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, think 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. 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, Blink, 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 and a distinct personality 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 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 trucks parts, or personal conflicts between the trucks--are addressed and overcome so the job can be completed.

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--Fleeker, Flo and Boomer--who have been sent to earth to explore, investigate, 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 [that's Floogal-speak for human], 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 being by encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi-step process of watching, listening, touching and note-taking until they've figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Two (2) different episodes aired on the main digital channel of this locally produced show that interviews community leaders. The show educates and informs viewers regarding current affairs and encourages viewers to participate. Show#629 - The Community Affairs programming for NBC 5, Five Talk Street, aired on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at 5pm. In this program, we discussed Clear the Shelters with Corey Price, Irving Animal Services Manager, and Allison Harper, Allen Animal Shelter's Animal Services Supervisor. Clear the Shelters is a campaign aimed at getting viewers to adopt animals. Every television station in the owned television station division of NBCUniversal is participating - NBC stations and Telemundo. Over 20,000 animals were adopted last year nationwide and it all started here in DFW. We also discussed CitySquare's new program, Transition Resource Action Center (TRAC). A program aimed at teenagers who are aged out of foster care. TRAC is designed to help most challenged at-risk teens make a life plan and acquire skills they need to survive on their own after they turn 18. Next, we discussed Walk to End Alzheimer's, the nation's largest event to raise the public's awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. The Walk to End Alzheimer's takes place in more than 600 communities nationwide. Participants in the Walk will have the chance to learn more about brain health and awareness and also take par in the Promise Garden Ceremony which allows you the opportunity to make a commitment by fulfilling the promise to remember, honor, care and fight Alzheimer's disease. Afterward representatives from the City of Cedar Hill discusses Cedar Hill's mission to Keep Cedar Hill Beautiful. Cedar Hill is in th3e heart of the Metroplex. The county is 20 minutes southwest of Downtown Dallas and about 30 minutes away from Downtown Fort Worth and people come from all over the Metroplex to enjoy the distinctive environment Cedar Hill has to offer. Lastly, a discussion about a community where women can be heard online with CEO and Co-founder for Plaid for Women, Inc. PlaidforWomen.com, is a profitable business that offers a variety of resources for women to help them navigate what they call the "business of life" and to give them a place to say what they wanted to say without having to talk about the four F's: food, fashion, fitness, and fame. Show #631 - The Community Affairs programming for NBC 5, Five Talk Street, aired on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 1130am. In this program, we discussed The State Fair of Texas, a non-profit organization with deep-rooted connection to Fair Park and significant ties to Texas history. In honor of its history, The State Fair of Texas constantly strives to promote agricultural, education, and community involvement. Next, we discussed Kroger's new online opportunity, Clicklist and It's a Fair Deal. Clicklist is a convenient new way to shop and allows shoppers to shop online and pick up their orders at their local Kroger store at the time that is convenient for them. It's a Fair Deal is a community initiative partnered by NBC 5, Kroger, and The State Fair of Texas for the North Texas Food Bank. By bringing a minimum of four canned food items to The State Fair of Texas every Wednesday, fairgoers will be able to benefit an admission of $4. All of the canned food collected will be donated to the North Texas Food Bank. We also discussed SafeHaven Legacy of Women Award Luncheon with NFL legend, Terry Bradshaw. SafeHaven's Legacy of Women Awards Luncheon recognizes the accomplishments of 10 extraordinary Tarrant County women who excel in their respective fields and make our community a better place, while raising funds to support SafeHaven programs. SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive domestic violence agency in Tarrant County providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims. Afterward, we discussed the Cattle Baron's Ball, which is the American Cancer Society's largest single-night fundraising event. Money raised from the Cattle Baron's Ball will go towards cancer research projects here in North Texas, raising more than $70 million to date. All money is raised by 100 active members who volunteer their time year-round to the cause and for the first tiem this year, the committee will raise money for Hope Lodge, a program that will provide free accommodations for cancer patients and their caregivers who must travel to Dallas for treatment. Lastly, we discussed with the Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce about their mission to empower and support black businesses within Collin County. Collin County is one of the fastest growing counties in the state of Texas. Since the county's conception in the 1840's, there has been no known Black Chamber of Commerce and being the first Black Chamber of Commerce in Collin County with 6.91 percent African-American Owned Businesses, it is the chambers mission to empower business leaders by offering educational courses and events to embolden the minority growth. Additional runs of these episodes aired on KXAS 5.2 COZI TV.
