While in Treetopolis, Tom and his friends, Ariella, Twigs, Squirmturn and Zigzoo will invariably run into a problem or disaster that needs fixing.

The team of animals who run it are the best of friends - Comet, Halley, Sputnik, Radar and Jet - all under the watchful eye of Sal the Octopus. But when you stick five friends with very different personalities in one place - things are bound to get messy. Through it all, the "Astroblast!" crew accept their differences, help one another, make new friends, and discover that getting along is always out of this world. Every day brings a new adventure - big and small - whether it involves getting ready for a surprise birthday party for a Gremulon princess, dealing with demanding dairy-obsessed customers from the Milky Way, making peace between two spaceships of hungry space pirates, or helping a scary-looking, but shy, visitor make friends when no one will sit with him at lunch. "Astroblast!" is a Sprout original series that is co-produced with Scholastic Media, a division of Scholastic Inc, the global children's publishing, education and media company. Astroblast! is inspired by the books of the same name by award-winning author and illustrator Bob Kolar.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town encourages fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters' eating and fitness habits are linked to problem solving in their world. The lead character is Stephanie, a young girl who guides the audience through the story as she and her friends ("human" puppets) and her Uncle (Mayor Milford Meanswell) navigate life within Lazy Town. Robbie Rotten, the underground spy and influencer who personifies the ethos of Lazy Town, is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids have difficulty with Robbie Rotten, Sportacus, a gymnast/athlete prepared to answer any call for help, comes to the rescue from his home in a zeppelin-like aircraft that hovers over earth. The underlying themes of Lazy Town stress the importance of eating sports candy (aka fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Chica Show 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.
