Astroblast, based on the book series by author and illustrator Bob Kolar, is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. Five animal characters and one three-eyed octopus of unknown derivation populate the station. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament needing a solution. While these predicaments take place in a fantasy environment, the issues and resolutions resonate for a preschool audience. Through comedy and zippy action, our target audience sees how the characters learn lessons for practical living such as how to keep track of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or an embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Tree Fu Tom is a live action/animated series about a little boy who lives in a rural area, and has a rich fantasy life in the woods behind his home. Tom uses specific movements to summon up magic powers that permit him to morph into an animated hero and fly around in Treetopolis, the fantasy version of his woods. While in Treetopolis, Tom and his friends, Ariella, Twigs, Squirmturn and Zigzoo will invariably run into a problem or disaster that needs fixing. Tom calls upon the audience to practice original dance moves that will bring him "Big World" magic so he and his friends can resolve their challenge of the day. Educational messages reinforce positive socio-emotional content, with examples that model: being loyal to good friends, knowing how to ask for help, doing the right thing instead of what is convenient, making the effort to share rather than being selfish and relying on teamwork in order to accomplish a goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Earth to Luna is a Brazilian animated series specifically aimed at teaching 2 to 5 year old children how to ask questions about nature and science and vigorously pursue the answers.

For example, Luna might wonder how she can grow a plant without a seed and finds the answer through her inquiry process. The characters, Luna, Jupiter her brother, and Clive their pet ferret embark on a research effort that takes the audience through each step that answers their overarching question. The show uses recurring features, signature phrases, and songs to cue the audience when they need to do research, when they transition to the adventure, and when they have reached the ending to review all they've learned.

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 that include playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.
