The questions fall under curriculum core areas of knowledge in social studies, science, the arts, civics, and mathematics. The format allows for a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended, which is a serious asset. The integration of core curriculum areas is a traditional goal in education. On the Spot is a great example of why knowledge is important.

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. LazyTown was rescheduled from its regularly scheduled time of 9:30-10am on Nov. 26, 2016 to air during its second home at 11-11:30am due to Sports programming. The rescheduled LazyTown was then preempted from its second home due to breaking news coverage of Fidel Castro's death.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Chica Show features a 5 year old baby chick that spends her days with her parents in their costume shop. 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, distraction, judgment and interpersonal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure 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. The Chica Show was preempted by a breaking news report on Sat., Nov. 26, 2016.

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 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. Noodle and Doodle focuses on pre-school friendly family activities such as crafts and cooking. Noodle & Doodle was preempted by a breaking news report on Sat., Nov. 26, 2016
