Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Astroblast is the space station and home of six animal characters in Bob Kolars book series of the same name. An overconfident and exuberant commander, Comet the dog, manages the space station. The crew includes, Sputnik the pig, a very knowledgeable reader. Halley the rabbit, an athlete and Comets true peer. Radar, the monkey, who is somewhat self involved. Jet, a silent alligator whose gestures and expressions are his mode of communication. And Sal, a congenial three eyed octopus who runs the counter in the space station cafe, the Smoothie Shack. While the space station supports the missions of a bizarre and diverse array of aliens, the Smoothie Shack is the hub of social interaction for the galaxy. There is always something happening at Astroblast and everyone on the crew has plenty to learn to keep the community happy and on an even keel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Chica Show features a five year old baby chick that spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shops one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit, and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. Chicas parents were formerly entertainers in the vaudeville tradition and they regale the audience with stories and songs from their theatrical past. They enjoy and indulge Chica, who sometimes acts younger than her age and gets into all kinds of predicaments. Kelly uses fantasy play to transform herself, Chica, Bunji, and Stitches into animated characters in another universe, who are struggling with a problem similar to the one Chica experienced in the Coop. Without fail, they find the problem can be solved and they carry that knowledge back to the Coop to use on another day.

Their transport vehicles are Rolypods, artful go carts that fit on a spiral ramp that folds in and out of the Spin Again, a colorful round spinning top with special compartments designed to anchor each vehicle right on the outside rim during the journey.

The trucks reside in a fully equipped truck yard/rock quarry and work as a team on various building projects that require planning, collaboration and implementation.
