Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Howdy Doody is a 1975 series which is known to its viewers for Buffalo Bob in his cowboy attire and a cast of human characters such as Clarabell the Clown and Chief Thunderthud as well as puppets (i.e., Howdy Doody, Dilly Dally, Flub-a-Dub, etc.). Children sat on stage in the Peanut Gallery, thus making this show a forerunner of interactive programming we enjoy today. The primary value of the series is to educate and entertain elementary school-aged children. In addition, both older children and monitoring adults will find this series amusing and quite charming as Howdy Doody is a timeless character who has an interactive quality. Educationally, the series offers opportunities for parents and teachers to teach lessons related to language, character development, science, and listening skills. (Showplace TV Syndication)

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Aqua Kids provides a unique vehicle for young people to learn about the diversity of marine animals around the world, emphasizing the importance of preserving fragile aquatic habitats and encouraging children to take an active role in protecting the future of their community and the world. The program provides a window into the management and preservation of unique habitats and species through the eyes of kids and their hands-on collaboration with science researchers and educators. The messages delivered by Aqua Kids are given by a creative and resourceful host, Molly McKinney, whose scientific background is evident in the show. The other young hosts, whose ages range from pre-teen to late teens, are equally entertaining and informative. The young viewers identify with these young hosts and imagine themselves in the role of the scientist and as someone who could have a positive impact on the environment. The format of young student scientists presenting information on location in a variety of aquatic settings is both entertaining and informative. (Showplace TV Syndication)

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Tree Fu Tom, is a live action/animated series about a little boy who lives in a rural area and has a rich fantasy life in the woods behind his home. Tom uses specific movements to summon up magic powers that permit him to morph into an animated hero and fly around in Treetopolis, the fantasy version of his woods. While in Treetopolis, Tom and his friends, Ariella, Twigs, Squirmturn and Zigzoo will invariably run into a problem or disaster that needs fixing. Tom calls upon the audience to practice original dance moves that will bring him "Big World" magic so he and his friends can resolve their challenge of the day. Educational messages reinforce positive socio-emotional content, with examples that model: being loyal to good friends, knowing how to ask for help, doing the right thing instead of what is convenient, making the effort to share rather than being selfish, or relying on teamwork in order to accomplish a goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat, based on the book series by Lara Jones, models the use of imagination and storytelling to encourage creative thinking in viewers. Each episode features the narrator Lara, reading a story about Poppy Cat, to her own cat (who is also named Poppy). She weaves an exciting tale following her imagination, which leads her to distant lands reached by boat, plane, hot air balloon or train. Each story features Poppy Cat as the leader of a group of animal friends, the resident bully Egbert the badger, and other occasionally recurring characters. A prevailing message emerges within each episode to be nice to your friends and always work together. There remains an overarching implicit message within every episode as well: think creatively and exercise your mind through reading and storytelling - for these activities always lead to enjoyment and adventure.

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 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 Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development as Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills.

Noodle and Doodle, an instructional series, features art and cooking projects around a specific theme. Host, Sean, drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something to display within the child's home. Sean's side-kick, Doggity, is an ever-faithful beagle who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe, set in a kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. The art projects typically promote utilizing recycled materials in order to demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something that achieves a completely different goal

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Astroblast!, based on the book series "Astroblast!" by author and illustrator Bob Kolar, is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. The station is populated by five animal characters and one 3-eyed octopus of unknown derivation. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament of some sort needing a solution. While these predicaments take place on a space station populated by animal characters and aliens from different galaxies, 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 a space when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or 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. The Chica Show features a five-year-old "baby" chick that 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 Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development as Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills.

Set in a fantasy world known as Lazy Town, which is populated by inactive residents, we meet a visitor named Stephanie who is determined to coax her friends and relatives into adopting a healthful, active life style. She wins over her new friends, Ziggy, Stingy, Trixie and Pixel, convincing them to leave their gaming consoles and candy stashes at home so they can go outside and play. She persuades her uncle, Mayor Milford Meanswell, and his friend Ms. Busy Body to support her efforts. Robbie Rotten, who lives underground, and is determined to return Lazy Town to its former state of inactivity and quiet, constantly foils the characters' efforts. Coming to the rescue is the athlete Sportacus who lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help. Sportacus has two goals, to keep the peace and to promote healthful, positive living. When Robbie Rotten is discovered and contained through comic pratfalls, he returns to his underground lair and all is well in Lazy Town, until another day and another time when Robbie will rise again.
