Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. EL SHOW DE CHICA features a five-year-old "baby" chick who spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. 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, distractibility, judgment, and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure-- a fantasy transformation to animation-- 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, and 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.

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. While the show will be enjoyed by preschoolers, the projects are very practical and engaging to implement for children ages 5-8. 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. WHADDYADO, a half-hour weekly series designed to educate, inform, inspire and entertain, does an exceptional job educating teenagers. The shows target audience is between 13 and 16 years of age, the time period when children are making the transition to becoming adults. Both theory and research demonstrate that this is the stage of life where children begin to experiment with who they are who they want to be. Its a time which is typified by feeling invincible. This sense of invulnerability is commonly coupled with withdraw from parents and authority figures which leaves teenagers susceptible to poor decision making. Therefore, this time where insight and judgment are developing, but adult influence is limited, educational programming can make an immense impact on a childs decisions. WHADDYADO provides an excellent opportunity for teenagers to learn life lessons they likely are otherwise not open to receiving.

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 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.
