Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This animated series is based on the books by Richard Scarry. The fictional city Busytown is an enchanting place that's abuzz with energy and life. Episodes are divided into multiple segments with different themes.

The middle segment shows children life in other cities featuring daily activities of adult characters in places such as Paris or Rome. Each episode includes two song segments in which the first, "Imagine That", teaches various things like general science to how banks work. The second song segment that teaches safety is called "Play it Safe". The aim of the series is to stimulate imagination and foster vicarious play, teach pro-social behavior (such as generosity, friendliness, persistence, altruism, understanding of others' points of view, empathy, acceptance of others' idiosyncrasies), help children move beyond family attachments to the world of friendships and community, help children develop skills on which academic learning depends such as attention, language, memory, active processing of a story and an interest in reading.
