Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Ruff-Ruff, Tweet, and Dave [RRTD] is a preschool adventure/activity show where the lead characters travel to faraway lands to have adventures with their guide, a hamster named Hatty. Ruff-Ruff, the dog, is the most playful of the three; Tweet is a little bird who loves to fly and get creative with her suggestions; and Dave the Panda has a thing for bananas. RRTD might go to the beach, or the mountains, or to strange lands with pillows everywhere, just the sort of place where imagination and logic come together. The settings are always brightly colored and beautiful. Their transport vehicles are Roly-pods, artful go-carts that fit on a spiral ramp that folds in and out of the Spin-Again, a colorful round spinning top with special compartments designed to anchor each vehicle right on the outside rim during the journey.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Clangers, a beloved British series originally launched in 1969 by its writer, narrator and animator, Oliver Postgate, returns to broadcast television under the stewardship of Postgate's, son, Daniel. All of the features of the original series have been retained but updated to 21st century colors and materials. The main characters are the Clanger family, a group of pink knitted mouse-like creatures who walk upright: Mother, Major (who is father), Small and Tiny (the children) and Granny. Clanger Planet is small enough to walk its circumference and is also riddled with caves and tunnels that house the family and their friends: the Soup Dragon and her baby, the three Froglets, and a group of singing flowers. Contextual features and characters include a sideways lake, singing trees, a cloud that has emotions, flying "cows" and The Iron Chicken who lives in a nest of harvested metal parts from the detritus of outer space. The tone is existential-each day presents its own story-which is usually happily resolved by one of the children or another family member. The series is fittingly narrated by William Shatner (Captain Kirk from the Star Trek television series).

Lazy Town is a show featuring the importance of health, fitness, and being good friends. 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. The athlete Sportacus lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help. He frequently comes to their rescue. 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

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. Clangers, a beloved British series originally launched in 1969 by its writer, narrator and animator, Oliver Postgate, returns to broadcast television under the stewardship of Postgate's, son, Daniel. All of the features of the original series have been retained but updated to 21st century colors and materials. The main characters are the Clanger family, a group of pink knitted mouse-like creatures who walk upright: Mother, Major (who is father), Small and Tiny (the children) and Granny. Clanger Planet is small enough to walk its circumference and is also riddled with caves and tunnels that house the family and their friends: the Soup Dragon and her baby, the three Froglets, and a group of singing flowers. Contextual features and characters include a sideways lake, singing trees, a cloud that has emotions, flying "cows" and The Iron Chicken who lives in a nest of harvested metal parts from the detritus of outer space. The tone is existential-each day presents its own story-which is usually happily resolved by one of the children or another family member. The series is fittingly narrated by William Shatner (Captain Kirk from the Star Trek television series).

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.
