Pajanimals focuses on teaching bedtime routines and practicing them consistently so children can get a good nights sleep. In each episode one of the main characters Apollo the dog, Squacky, the duck, Sweetpea Sue, a horse, and Cowbella, a purple and white cow has difficulty sleeping or faces a problem. They all pile onto one of the beds and are whisked off to a land of adventure that offers solutions to their problems. Each bed travels to a specific place for the adventure: Squackys bed goes to Ellie the octopus who lives in the Big Blue Sea and to Coach Whistler who lives in Land of Play; Cowbellas bed goes to Edwin, who lives in Storybook Land and to Jerry Bear, who lives in the Big Friendly Forest; Apollos bed goes to the Moon who is in the Night Sky, and Sweetpea Sues bed goes to Mr. Happy Birthday, a porcupine who resides in Birthday Land, and Bedtimes Bunny who lives in the Land of Hush. Each show ends with the problem resolved and the Pajanimals tucked into their beds for a good nights rest.

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 Cats 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 her 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 dont 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.

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 Justins bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesnt 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.

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. Coming to the rescue is the athlete Sportacus who lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft 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 returns 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. Come spend a day in the life with the monsters at Wimzies house and you never want to go home. Its the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside but definitely human on the inside. After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of todays preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yayas house as does Rousso, Yayas best friend even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old and counting and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world.It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horave and Azuline as the work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of your way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers home. A daycare full of little monsters what could be more real. Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.

See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. 1. Due to the volume of Sports Specials by NBC, it was very difficult to reschedule preemptions of program 7 in its first or second home. 2.
