Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The most beloved family entertainers in the world, The Wiggles are a unique and dynamic musical group who entertain children, enchanting them with the pure joy of their own music and dance. Instantly recognized in their distinctive skivvies, the friendly foursome have been said to be the major force in moving children's entertainment away from the traditional and into the contemporary area, in a strong positive fashion. Well-crafted songs, interesting lyrics, humor that's spot on for the audience's age group, characters that are intelligently constructed and a dialogue with their audience that's easy to follow and never patronizing. The Wiggles are the world's number one preschool entertainers and have performed over 300 shows to more than 1.5 million fans since 2005 in the United States alone. The Wiggles perform over 200 shows annually across four continents. The Wiggles are seen on TV in over 110 countries worldwide, and are seen exclusively in the U.S. on Sprout (and soon also on NBC Kids). The Wiggles have sold more than 22.5 million videos and 7 million CDs in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Designed to encourage healthy eating and exercise, "LazyTown" is a mix of live and animated characters that come to life in an energetic and colorful world, motivating kids through play to be active and make positive life choices. LazyTown is the fictional home of Sportacus, Stephanie, Trixie, Pixel, Ziggy, Stingy and Robbie Rotten. The four puppet characters - Ziggy, Pixel, Stingy and Trixie - represent some of the challenges all kids face in daily life: making healthy choices, sharing, making friends, and more. Sportacus is the larger-than-life action hero, who is the flipside of Robbie Rotten, representing positive and negative approaches to life. Stephanie is visiting LazyTown and her enthusiasm about making healthy choices helps pull it all together. LazyTown takes the important lessons of eating right and exercising and makes them simple and fun for both parents and preschoolers. At Sprout, our programming has always been about inspiring parent-child interaction through unique, learning-based entertainment, so LazyTown was the perfect addition to the network's gold-standard line-up and also for NBC Kids, which was designed to address the development needs of 2-5 year-olds through educational series that promote active, healthy lifestyles for younger children.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The most beloved family entertainers in the world, The Wiggles are a unique and dynamic musical group who entertain children, enchanting them with the pure joy of their own music and dance. Instantly recognized in their distinctive skivvies, the friendly foursome have been said to be the major force in moving children's entertainment away from the traditional and into the contemporary area, in a strong positive fashion. Well-crafted songs, interesting lyrics, humor that's spot on for the audience's age group, characters that are intelligently constructed and a dialogue with their audience that's easy to follow and never patronizing. The Wiggles are the world's number one preschool entertainers and have performed over 300 shows to more than 1.5 million fans since 2005 in the United States alone. The Wiggles perform over 200 shows annually across four continents. The Wiggles are seen on TV in over 110 countries worldwide, and are seen exclusively in the U.S. on Sprout (and soon also on NBC Kids). The Wiggles have sold more than 22.5 million videos and 7 million CDs in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
