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 every-faithful Beagle dog, who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe and kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. 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. LAZY TOWN promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, 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 Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town 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 Lazy Town 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, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures. The citizens of LazyTown learn the importance of exercise and eating right

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 is 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 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. Ruff Ruff Tweet & 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.

The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town 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 Lazy Town 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, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures. The citizens of LazyTown learn the importance of exercise and eating right.

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.

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 very practical and engaging to implement for older children. 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.
