Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. You may think you know the reason why Elephant has a long trunk, or why Tortoise has a broken shell. But as brand new preschool series Tinga Tinga Tales is soon to reveal, the reason for each is a whole other story Inspired by traditional African animal folktales and the art of Tanzania, Tinga Tinga Tales opens up a fantastical world of colour, characters and transformation. Targeting children 3 to 6 years old, the show draws upon the inspiring talent of local artists and musicians and is expertly computer animated using beautiful, hand painted imagery. Each episode tells the fantastical story of how a particular animal came to be, Why Crocodile has a bumpy back or Zebra has stripes, but The Big Six form the heart of the animal community in Tinga Tinga. They are Monkey, Tortoise, Elephant, Hippo, Tickbird and Lion. There is nothing more important than community and friendship in Tinga. There are good animals and bad animals, grumpy animals and patient animals, water animals and land animals, tall animals, short animals, loud animals and shy animals, but they all have their role to play. Big personalities for big characters, running jokes, catchphrases and lots of music.
