Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Terrific Trucks is based on the idea that every big truck and earth moving vehicle has a real life and a very unique personality that fits the specific type of work they do. In this live-action series, actual big trucks are personified and live in their quarry ready to hit the road to complete all kinds of earth moving, heavy lifting, car crushing, and big maneuvering projects that are sent to their messenger, Mr. Bill Board, a huge digital sign that receives electronically delivered job requests for the team. Bill Board calls the team to assemble as he describes the work. Tork (an earnest dump truck and team leader) organizes the project and gives assignments to the team members. They are Sparky (an amiable front-end loader), Dug (a diligent and indispensable excavator for almost all the jobs), Stotz (an immaculate and vain 18-wheeler semi hauler), and Blinker (the youngest and playful mini front end loader). Invariably they have challenges and risks to manage with each job, but they get resolved with team efforts and mutual respect. Nonetheless, the best part of the day is coming home to the yard satisfied with what they have accomplished, and ready for a nice warm truck wash before they go in formation and sleep for the night.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This show is based on the book series of the same name by author and illustrator Bob Kolar. It is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. The station is populated by five animal characters and one octopus with three eyes. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament of some sort needing a solution. While these predicaments take place on a space station populated by animal characters and aliens from different galaxies, 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. Examples include how to keep track of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up a space when you have made a mess, rebound from a failure or 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 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, 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 begin by encountering something new and then go through a comedic process of watching, listening, touching, and taking notes until they figure 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. The Chica Show is a baby chick of 5 who spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shop has one employee, Kelly and she doubles as nanny. The ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. The parents of Chica were formerly entertainers in the vaudeville tradition and they regale the audience with stories and songs from their theatrical past. They enjoy and indulge Chica, who sometimes acts younger than her age and gets into all kinds of predicaments. Kelly uses fantasy play to transform herself, Chica, Bunji and Stitches into animated characters in another universe, who are struggling with a problem similar to the one Chica experienced in the Coop. Without fail, they find the problem can be solved and they carry that knowledge back to the Coop to use on another day.

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 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, 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 begin by encountering something new and then go through a comedic process of watching, listening, touching, and taking notes until they figure 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. The REAL WINNING EDGE series is developed to be an educational and informational program for the 13 to16 year age group. It is designed to help youth make winning choices in their lives in order to grow to be productive citizens. This series is based on role models who are making rounded life choices. Emphasis on being honest, loyal, hard working toward productive goals, and treating others as they would like to be treated, are values emphasized by the positive role models in The Real Winning Edge. Education research indicates that, from preadolescence through the teenage years, youth are most influenced by their peers. Their role model preferences switch from parents to the sports and entertainment icons during these years for most. If the peers and the icons promote antisocial standards and nonconformity to guiding principles honored in our society, youth soon adopt behaviors that not only hurt others but hurt themselves. The Real Winning Edge will go a long way in helping youth to develop character, being the best they can be by seeing their peers and the celebrities whom they admire, who themselves have the character to make winning choices.
