Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Main Digital Lazy Town encourages fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters' eating and fitness habits are linked to problem solving in their world. The lead character is Stephanie, a young girl who guides the audience through the story as she and her friends ("human" puppets) and her Uncle (Mayor Milford Meanswell) navigate life within Lazy Town. Robbie Rotten, the underground spy and influencer who personifies the ethos of Lazy Town, is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids have difficulty with Robbie Rotten, Sportacus, a gymnast/athlete prepared to answer any call for help, comes to the rescue from his home in a zeppelin-like aircraft that hovers over earth. The underlying themes of Lazy Town stress the importance of eating "sports candy" (aka fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.

Multicast Mystery Hunters is an excellent example of a children's program that is innovative and empowering. Through critical observation, analytical thinking and scientific testing,the series encourages children to question the world around them. Through both the travel aspect and investigation of ancient myths and mysteries, there is a profound focus on history, culture, geography, and international customs. The Mystery Hunters are Araya and Christina, regular kids with inquisitive minds, who travel the globe to investigate the sites and delve into the tales which have baffled people throughout the ages looking for the Loch Ness Monster, unraveling a smelly mummy, searching for Princess Anastasia, and learning the true story of King Tut. Armed with video cameras and their instincts, they gather facts and meet the experts, debunking common myths and offering explanations for legends, spooky stories, and unexplained phenomena. They use critical thinking and scientific reasoning to show that things are not always what they seem. Back at the Discovery Mystery Lab, Doubting Dave, the resident skeptical scientist, challenges viewers to send in their own mysteries, and then tackles the questions with experiments and logical explanations. Dave also assists the Mystery Hunters with their investigations.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Main Digital Justin Time features a little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, providing him with an experience to help solve his problem when he returns home. Justin is accompanied by two imaginary friends throughout his adventures; Olive, a knowledgeable playmate, and Squidgy, the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Some examples of Justin's lessons involve learning that it takes focus to achieve success, our failures can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find an alternative way to achieve your goal. Justin promotes self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

They reside primarily in their bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they complete their nighttime routine of brushing teeth and conversing quietly before falling to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the social/emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced throughout the adventure. The children return home in time to get ample rest, confident about facing their issues when they awaken the following day.
