Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. NOODLE AND DOODLE is an instructional series that features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. The show is hosted by Sean, who drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies, and a kitchen, all ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something for display in the child's home. Sean is accompanied by Doggity, an every-faithful Beagle dog, who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe and kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. While the show will be enjoyed by preschoolers, the projects are also very practical and engaging to implement for children ages 5-8. The art projects typically feature lessons on recycling materials for re-use in making art and always demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something useful to achieve a completely different goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. EL SHOW DE CHICA features 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 Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio-emotional development, and 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The series Zoo Clues will keep 13-16 year-old viewers engaged for 30 minutes with the nearly infinite visual richness , animal characteristics , and wild range of animal behaviors . Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audience s should find this look across the amazing world of animal s fascinating . Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues w ill leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals an d meaningful comparisons to t heir own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way t hat always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. LAZYTOWN promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, LazyTown, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in LazyTown, where her uncle is Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of LazyTown is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete, who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of LazyTown is to eat "sports candy'" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games and holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

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, and 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. LAZYTOWN promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, LazyTown, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in LazyTown, where her uncle is Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of LazyTown is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete, who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of LazyTown is to eat "sports candy'" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games and holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The series Zoo Clues will keep 13 - 16 year - old viewers engaged for 30 minutes with the nearly infinite visual richness , animal characteristics , and wild range of animal behaviors . Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audience s should find this look across the amazing world of animal s fascinating . Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues w ill leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals an d meaningful comparisons to t heir own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom i s truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction , but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way t hat always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.
