Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off 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 socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is 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. Chica's parents were formerly entertainers in the vaudeville tradition and they regale the audience with stories and songs from their theatrical past. They enjoy and indulge Chica, who sometimes acts younger than her age and gets into all kinds of predicaments. Kelly uses fantasy play to transform herself, Chica, Bunji and Stitches into animated characters in another universe, who are struggling with a problem similar to the one Chica experienced in the Coop. Without fail, they find the problem can be solved and they carry that knowledge back to the Coop to use on another day.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town is a show that is all about health, fitness, and being good friends. Set in a fantasy world known as Lazy Town, which is populated by inactive residents, we see a visitor named Stephanie determined to coax her friends and relatives to begin healthful, active living. She wins over her new friends, Ziggy, Stingy, Trixie and Pixel, to leave their gaming consoles and candy stashes at home so they can go outside and play. She gets her Uncle, the Mayor and his friend Ms. Busy Body to support her efforts. But all of them are constantly foiled by Robbie Rotten, who lives underground and is determined to send Lazy Town back to inactivity and quiet. Coming to the rescue is the athlete Sportacus who lives in a spaceship 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 goes back to his underground lair and all is well in Lazy Town, until another day and another time when Robbie will rise again.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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, but also provides him with an experience that helps him solve his problem when he returns home. While on the adventure he is accompanied by Olive, a knowledgeable imaginary playmate, and Squidgy the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Justin's lessons involve learning, for example, that it takes focus to achieve success, failure 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 another way to get to your goal. Justin is all about self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the book series by Lara Jones and uses embedded lessons on imagination and storytelling to encourage creating thinking for preschool children. In each story the narrator, Lara reads a story about Poppy Cat, to her own cat named Poppy. She makes up a story that will be exciting and just follows her imagination to distant lands reached by boat, plane or train. Poppy Cat is the leader of his group of animal friends, and the story always features an underlying message about being nice to yet ignoring the antics of the resident bully, a badger named Egbert. The lesson is always to think creatively and exercise your mind through reading and storytelling because it will always lead to enjoyment and adventure.
