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 also 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.

It is during the adolescent years that career exploration, planning, education, and decision-making begins. There is no question that a career in one of the multimedia industries is among the most popular career choices of adolescents. Although many feel their calling is for a more obvious "on-camera" career in acting, there are also a number of "behind the screen" pursuits that make for fulfilling career choices. Made in Hollywood: Teen Edition (MIH:TE) was created by Connection III Entertainment Corp. to provide career information and advice from top Hollywood professionals to 13- to 16-year-old viewers so they can explore and learn about the technical, artistic, creative, business, and administrative careers that are a part of the motion picture, television, music video, and home entertainment industries as well as to learn about some of the skills, personal attributes, techniques, and strategies needed to enter these fields.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. H.R. Pufnstuf is a children's television series produced by Sid and Marty Krofft and was the first Krofft live-action, life-size puppet program. H.R. Pufnstuf tells of a fairy tale of good versus evil. The show centers on a shipwrecked boy named Jimmy who is 11 years old when he arrives on the island. Jimmy and his friend, a talking flute named Freddy, take a ride on a mysterious boat, which promises adventures across the sea, to kooky Living Island, home of dancing talking trees and singing frogs. The Mayor of Living Island is a friendly and helpful dragon named H.R. Pufnstuf. The boat is actually owned and controlled by a wicked witch named Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo who rides on a broomstick-like vehicle called the Vroom Broom. She uses the boat to lure Jimmy and Freddy to her castle on Living Island, where she was going to take Jimmy prisoner and steal Freddy. But H.R. Pufnstuf found out about her plot and is able to rescue Jimmy when he leaps out of the enchanted boat with Freddy and swims ashore. Jimmy is taken in by H.R. Pufnstuf, who iss able to protect him from Witchiepoo, as the cave where he lives is the only place her magic has no effect. A frequent plot device involves Witchiepoo and her henchmen Orson Vulture, Seymour Spider, and Stupid Bat trying to steal Freddy only to be thwarted by Pufnstuf. Another concerns Jimmy and Freddy's efforts to return home from Living Island with the same lack of success. Child viewers learn about problem solving, friendship, leadership, and magic.

Green Screen Adventures features stories and drawings by students in first through eighth grade using sketch comedy, story theater, game shows, original songs, puppetry and more. Since their debut in 2007, they have featured stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. The show is set around the submissions of short stories, school reports, poetry, essays, basic academic questions and artwork from students between first and eighth grades. An ensemble of actors for the series then takes these submissions, and the program's writers and actors create a short teleplay which is acted out with minimal props, costumes and a chroma key backdrop (the titlular green screen of the series.) The student's story is brought to life by the actors as the green screen becomes the world of the story or subject. The Green Screen also showcases the children's original artwork.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. LAZYTOWN promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, LazyTown, 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 LazyTown, where her uncle is Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of LazyTown 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 LazyTown 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 and holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

The Mayor of Living Island is a friendly and helpful dragon named H.R. Pufnstuf. The boat is actually owned and controlled by a wicked witch named Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo who rides on a broomstick-like vehicle called the Vroom Broom. She uses the boat to lure Jimmy and Freddy to her castle on Living Island, where she was going to take Jimmy prisoner and steal Freddy. But H.R. Pufnstuf found out about her plot and is able to rescue Jimmy when he leaps out of the enchanted boat with Freddy and swims ashore. Jimmy is taken in by H.R. Pufnstuf, who iss able to protect him from Witchiepoo, as the cave where he lives is the only place her magic has no effect.

Another concerns Jimmy and Freddy's efforts to return home from Living Island with the same lack of success. Child viewers learn about problem solving, friendship, leadership, and magic.
