Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Parents need to know that the main characters in The Floogals are three space explorers who observe human behavior from the shadows before trying their hand at understanding it themselves. The results are laugh-out-loud funny at times, even for grown-ups, and the show's blend of CGI (the Floogals and their spacecraft) and live-action (the human world around them) makes it an intriguing watch. The content is entirely wholesome and designed with preschoolers' natural curiosity in mind, and the characters' experiences show kids why making mistakes can be valuable experiences on the way to success.
