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 Floogal 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 dual 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-stop 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. Astroblast, based on the book series by author and illustrator Bob Kolar, is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. Five animal characters and one three-eyed octopus of unknown derivation populate the station. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament needing a 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. Terrific Trucks is a live-action series that follows the exploits of five self-driving, heavy-duty construction trucks. They include Tork, the dump truck, Stotz, the flatbed, Dug, the digger, Blinker, the mini-digger, and Sparky, the front-end loader. 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. Each truck brings specific skills to the group. They get challenging job assignments from Mr. Bill Board, a digital outdoor screen that outlines and diagrams the problem to be solved. By allocating the role and duties each truck will perform during the project, the group merges those unique skills to fulfill their respective assignments. Unexpected problems that could compromise their success-- such as the weather, broken truck parts, or personal conflicts between the trucks-- are addressed and overcome so the job can be completed.
