Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Astroblast, based on the book series by author and illustrator Bob Kolar, is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. Five animals characters and on three-eyed octopus of unknown derivation populate the station. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament needing solution. While these predicaments take place in a fantasy environment, the issues and resolutions resonate for a preschool audience. Through comedy and zippy action, our target audience sees how the characters learn lessons for practical living such as how to keep track of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or an embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Floogals is an animated show starring three space aliens - Fleeker, Flo, and Boomer - who have been sent to earth to explore, investigate, discover, and report their findings to their superiors at Floogals headquarters. The diminutive Floogals are no taller than a large safety pin and their visual perspective is literally the point of view of the show. With the multiple challenges of their size and ignorance of all things Hooman, (that's Floogal speak for human) the Floogals have a lot of work on their hands. They are engaged in the duel processes of discovery and problem solving as nothing on earth is familiar to them. Much like young children, they begin by encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi-step process of watching, listening, touching and note taking until they've figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe.

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 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, dis-tractability, judgement, 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 as 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. Terrific Trucks is based on the idea that every big truck and earth moving vehicle has a real life and a very unique personality that fits the specific type of work they do. In this live-action series, actual big trucks are personified and live in their quarry ready to hit the road to complete all kinds of earth moving, heavy lifting, car crushing, and big maneuvering projects that are sent to their messenger, Mr. Bill Board, a huge digital sign that receives electronically delivered job requests for the team. Bill Board calls the team to assemble as he describes the work. Tork (an earnest dump truck and team leader) organizes the project and gives assignments to the team members. They are Sparky (an amiable front-end loader), Dug (a diligent and indispensable excavator for almost all the jobs), Stotz (an immaculate and vain 18-wheeler semi hauler), and Blinker (the youngest and playful mini front end loader). Invariably they have challenges and risks to manage with each job, but they get resolved with team efforts and mutual respect. Nonetheless, the best part of the day is coming home to the yard satisfied with what they have accomplished, and ready for a nice warm truck wash before they go in formation and sleep for the night.

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 day with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shops 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. Chica's parents were formerly entertainers in the vaudeville tradition and they regale the audience with stories 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.
