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 her nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. Her 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.

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 have 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 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 or AKA humans, 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 step process of watching, listening, touching and note taking until they have figured out the meaning and purpose of what they discovered. They also comprehend how their discovery fits into the Hooman universe.
