Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This program is anchored by Sportacus, a fit and agile hero, whose "krytonite" is sugar, which makes him instantly lethargic. Sportacus and the program's cast of child characters are challenged in each episode with an issue or dilemma, and are opposed in their attempts to complete their mission by Robbie Rotten, who seeks to return Lazytown to its former lazy ways. The program seeks to impart to preschool and early school-aged children the importance of healthy living, and to help them understand the value of developing sound eating and physical exercise habits, while also providing them positive messages about friendship, empathy, self-respect, truthfulness and other age-appropriate life lessons. This program aired on station's main digital channel 1.

The show features the Clanger family, small mouse-like creatures that live on Clanger Planet far away from Earth. The members of the family are presented with many unusual challenges that become the center of a dilemma that must be resolved within each episode. Strange visitors arrive out of nowhere and the Clangers have to figure out who and why they are on Clanger Planet. Sometimes they need to help or rescue someone who has become lost on the planet. Other times, they are trying to understand outer space; meteors and comets and eclipses of the sun or moon. Each member of the family has a forte', from playing music to knitting or gardening or inventing equipment that comes in handy for some of the problem solving that takes place. This program airs on station's main digital channel 1.
