Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is a five-year-old 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. On The Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music, and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces a synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are giving by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by stereotypes of 'smart people' is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star-and is demonstrated by every type of person.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Zou is a French series based on the Zou books by Michel Gay. Targeted for children age 2-5, each episode explores the kind of learning issues that emerge from every day encounters in the life of a preschool child. If Zou plays his drums too loud, how can he learn to play them softly? If Zou wants a car, but has only a cardboard box, how can he transform it? If Zou lost his friend's favorite airplane, how does he explain? How can Zou be successful at baking a cake if he has never done it before? How can Zou muster the courage to go to the doctor when he's afraid of injections? These are big issues in the mind and life of a preschool child and Zou demonstrates how to have fun, ask for help, listen to advice, and try different solutions until he can commit to the strategy that works. The show says it, shows it, and does it, in the embedded and naturally occurring lesson within each episode.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas remains on course as a program that is entertaining and engaging to a wide audience while managing to deliver information that would be very welcome in a middle or high school classroom. The series matches the evolved visual intelligence of the young 21st century audience by building content with short clips, five-seconds or less in length, and weaving them together in a narrative that keeps a viewer engaged with a compelling narrative overview. The animal kingdom has an innate richness of color, form, and motion and Animal Atlas episodes are built from this richness. The thread that links the clips together is the connection between the differing members of the animal kingdom--- including our own species. In a compelling blend, animal examples are pulled from both common experience, such as the horse and cat, and exotic animals like the clouded leopard and the red panda. As the nature of animals is explored, the content and clarity create a program of exception education value.

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 audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their 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 that 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. Justin Time is an animated show specifically directed to the preschool audience and always conveys an embedded lesson; it is possible to understand and manage any problem you have by thinking about it creatively. Justin is a little boy who has two imaginary playmates, Olivia (who meets him on his travels) and Squidgy the sponge (who also lives in Justin's bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesn't want to do something his mother has suggested he daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to places all around the world. On these adventures, he meets Olivia who guides him through an experience that demonstrates to Justin how he can solve his problem. The show provides many facts about the context the characters visit while on the adventure, but the central point is to teach a lesson about a social/emotional dilemma universally experienced by preschool children.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, 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 Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he 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 Lazy Town 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, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

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.

Program Title Lazytown

Total times aired at regularly scheduled time 13
Length of Program 30 mins
Age of Target Child Audience from 2 years to 5 years
Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for children of preschool and primary grades. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, 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 Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he 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 Lazy Town 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, 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. Animal Atlas remains on course as a program that is entertaining and engaging to a wide audience while managing to deliver information that would be very welcome in a middle or high school classroom. The series matches the evolved visual intelligence of the young 21st century audience by building content with short clips, five-seconds or less in length, and weaving them together in a narrative that keeps a viewer engaged with a compelling narrative overview. The animal kingdom has an innate richness of color, form, and motion and Animal Atlas episodes are built from this richness. The thread that links the clips together is the connection between the differing members of the animal kingdom--- including our own species. In a compelling blend, animal examples are pulled from both common experience, such as the horse and cat, and exotic animals like the clouded leopard and the red panda. As the nature of animals is explored, the content and clarity create a program of exception education value.

Age of Target Child Audience from 13 years to 16 years
Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On The Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music, and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces a synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are giving by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by stereotypes of 'smart people' is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star-and is demonstrated by every type of person.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Noodle and Doodle, an instructional series, features creating art projects 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. Chica is a five-year-old 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 audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their 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 that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.

While the space station supports the missions of a bizarre and diverse array of aliens, the Smoothie Shack is the hub of social interaction for the galaxy. There is always something happening at Astroblast! And everyone on the crew has plenty to learn to keep the community happy and on an even keel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the Poppy Cat's Adventures book series authored and illustrated by Lara Jones. A narrator, also named Lara, reads a story to her cat in each episode. This story stars the narrator's own Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmatian who zips around on a skateboard; Alma, a southern belle bunny who is ultra-feminine and sweetly dramatic, Mo, a little mouse who tries his best to do as much as everyone else despite his size; Owl, the wise one who is prone to neck rolls and commentary when things irritate him or don't make sense, and the grouchy Egbert, an arrogant and obnoxious badger who refuses to play with the group and invariably attempts to sabotage their adventures. Occasionally Hilda, a forgetful and ditzy pigeon who flies into their adventures, appears to say hello or provide misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. At the conclusion of her story, Lara closes her book and says good-bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.
