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 Justin's bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesn't 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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. 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. Broadcast on the main program stream.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. An animated series, Zou, is the story of a 5 year old zebra, Bizou, who lives in an intergenerational household composed of his parents, grandparents, and great grandmother. They reside in a lovely brightly colored suburban community of vertical, bi-pedaled zebras that walk, talk, dress, and interact like humans. Bizou's best friend, Elzee, lives next door and his other good friend, Zac, is often found in his father's store. Bizou also has a less rewarding relationship with his snooty, spoiled cousin Zinnia, a budding ballerina. We follow Zou through his hum-drum days, vicariously participating in his birthday, a trip to the store, taking his pet parakeet Poc, to the doctor, or helping Elzee find a lost toy. The show is very centered on family and personal relationships, and the abundant adults in the family are always around to guide but not direct Bizou through his dilemmas, projects, and predicaments. Broadcast on the main program stream.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. An animated series, Zou, is the story of a 5 year old zebra, Bizou, who lives in an intergenerational household composed of his parents, grandparents, and great grandmother. They reside in a lovely brightly colored suburban community of vertical, bi-pedaled zebras that walk, talk, dress and interact like humans. Bizou's best friend, Elzee lives next door and his other good friend, Zac, is often found in his father's store. Bizou also has a less rewarding relationship with his snooty, spoiled cousin Zinnia, a budding ballerina. We follow Zou through his hum-drum days, vicariously participating in his birthday, a trip to the store, taking his pet parakeet Poc, to the doctor, or helping Elzee find a lost toy. The show is very centered on family and personal relationships, and the abundant adults in the family are always around to guide but not direct Bizou through his dilemmas, projects, and predicaments. Broadcast on the main program stream.
