Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is a five-year-old "baby" chick who 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, distractibility, judgment, and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure-a fantasy transformation to animation-- where Bunji and Stiches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process.

Green Screen Adventures also showcases the children's original artwork to develop an appreciation of art. The educational goals include encouraging children to be enthusiastic about writing and reading, helping students build a foundation for writing, critical thinking, and problem solving, promoting character development as the cast demonstrates cooperation and mutual respect, and providing educators with innovative and entertaining ways to enhance student learning. In addition to academic skills, Green Screen Adventures focuses on the five C's: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion.

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-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.
