Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The New Howdy Doody - E/I, K6-10 Howdy Doody is a 1975 series which is known to its viewers for Buffalo Bob in his cowboy attire and a cast of human characters such as Clarabell the Clown and Chief Thunderthud as well as puppets (i.e., Howdy Doody, Dilly Dally, Flub-a-Dub, etc.). Children sat on stage in the Peanut Gallery, thus making this show a forerunner of interactive programming we enjoy today. The primary value of the series is to educate and entertain elementary school-aged children. In addition, both older children and monitoring adults will find this series amusing and quite charming as Howdy Doody is a timeless character who has an interactive quality. Educationally, the series offers opportunities for parents and teachers to teach lessons related to language, character development, science, and listening skills. In accordance with the 1990 Children's Television Act (ATC) intended to increase educational and informational programming for children on television, HOWDY DOODY clearly meets the goals of providing children with a television show that meets CORE requirements of the FCC as follows: 1. Issues such as bullying, establishing trust and courtesy are faced and resolved in the episodes. 2. Responsibility is presented in a positive and encouraging manner. 3. Making choices in life, mastery of attachment and separation are emphasized in each episode. 4. Issues of competition and loyalty are conveyed throughout the series. (Showplace TV Syndication)

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Aqua Kids Adventures II - E/I, K13-16 Aqua Kids provides a unique vehicle for young people to learn about the diversity of marine animals around the world, emphasizing the importance of preserving fragile aquatic habitats and encouraging children to take an active role in protecting the future of their community and the world. The program provides a window into the management and preservation of unique habitats and species through the eyes of kids and their hands-on collaboration with science researchers and educators. The messages delivered by Aqua Kids are given by a creative and resourceful host, Molly McKinney, whose scientific background is evident in the show. The other young hosts, whose ages range from pre-teen to late teens, are equally entertaining and informative. The young viewers identify with these young hosts and imagine themselves in the role of the scientist and as someone who could have a positive impact on the environment. The format of young student scientists presenting information on location in a variety of aquatic settings is both entertaining and informative. (Showplace TV Syndication)

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Ruff Ruff, Tweet, and Dave [RRTD] is a preschool adventure/activity show where the lead characters travel to faraway lands to have adventures with their guide, a hamster named Hatty. Ruff Ruff, the dog, is the most playful of the three; Tweet is a little bird who loves to fly and get creative with her suggestions; and Dave the Panda has a thing for bananas. RRTD might go to the beach, or the mountains, or to strange lands with pillows everywhere; just the sort of place where imagination and logic come together. The settings are always brightly colored and beautiful. And their transport vehicles are Roly-pods, artful go-carts that fit on a spiral ramp that folds in and out of the Spin-Again, a colorful round spinning top with special compartments designed to anchor each vehicle right on the outside rim during the journey.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Clangers, a beloved British series originally launched in 1969 by its writer, narrator and animator, Oliver Postgate, returns to broadcast television under the stewardship of Postgate's, son, Daniel. All of the features of the original series have been retained but updated to 21st century colors and materials. The main characters are the Clanger family, a group of pink knitted mouse-like creatures who walk upright: Mother, Major (who is father), Small and Tiny (the children) and Granny. Clanger Planet is small enough to walk its circumference and is also riddled with caves and tunnels that house the family and their friends: the Soup Dragon and her baby, the three Froglets, and a group of singing flowers. Contextual features and characters include a sideways lake, singing trees, a cloud that has emotions, flying "cows" and The Iron Chicken who lives in a nest of harvested metal parts from the detritus of outer space. The tone is existential-each day presents its own story-which is usually happily resolved by one of the children or another family member. The series is fittingly narrated by William Shatner (Captain Kirk from the Star Trek television series).

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. The athlete Sportacus, who lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help, frequently comes to their rescue. 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. Earth to Luna is a Brazilian animated series specifically aimed at teaching 2-5 year old children how to ask questions about nature and science and vigorously pursue the answers. The show encourages curiosity, research, and critical thinking. Each episode of the show is focused on a particular creature, object, or phenomenon that would be of interest to the target audience. 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. Earth to Luna is a Brazilian animated series specifically aimed at teaching 2-5 year old children how to ask questions about nature and science and vigorously pursue the answers. The show encourages curiosity, research, and critical thinking. Each episode of the show is focused on a particular creature, object, or phenomenon that would be of interest to the target audience. 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.

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. The athlete Sportacus, who lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help, frequently comes to their rescue. 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 Clangers, a beloved British series originally launched in 1969 by its writer, narrator and animator, Oliver Postgate, returns to broadcast television under the stewardship of Postgate's, son, Daniel. All of the features of the original series have been retained but updated to 21st century colors and materials. The main characters are the Clanger family, a group of pink knitted mouse-like creatures who walk upright: Mother, Major (who is father), Small and Tiny (the children) and Granny. Clanger Planet is small enough to walk its circumference and also riddled with caves and tunnels that house the family and their friends: the Soup Dragon and her baby, the three Froglets, and a group of singing flowers. Contextual features and characters include a sideways lake, singing trees, a cloud that has emotions, flying "cows" and the Iron Chicken who lives in a nest of harvested metal parts from the detritus of outer space. The tone is existential-each day presents its own story-which is usually happily resolved by one of the children or another family member. The series is fittingly narrated by William Shatner (Captain Kirk from the Star Trek television series).

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Floogals is an animated show starring three space aliens--Fleeker, Flo, and Boomer-- who have been sent to earth to explore, investigate, discover and report their findings to their superiors at Floogal headquarters. The diminutive Floogals are no taller than a large safety pin and their visual perspective is literally the point of view of the show. With the multiple challenges of their size and ignorance of all things Hooman [that's Floogal-speak for human], the Floogals have a lot of work on their hands. They are engaged in the dual processes of discovery and problem solving as nothing on earth is familiar to them. Much like young children, they begin by encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi-step process of watching, listening, touching, and note-taking until they've figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe.

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 2-5 year old children how to ask questions about nature and science and vigorously pursue the answers. The show encourages curiosity, research, and critical thinking. Each episode of the show is focused on a particular creature, object, or phenomenon that would be of interest to the target audience. 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. The Clangers, a beloved British series originally launched in 1969 by its writer, narrator and animator, Oliver Postgate, returns to broadcast television under the stewardship of Postgate's, son, Daniel. All of the features of the original series have been retained but updated to 21st century colors and materials. The main characters are the Clanger family, a group of pink knitted mouse-like creatures who walk upright: Mother, Major (who is father), Small and Tiny (the children) and Granny. Clanger Planet is small enough to walk its circumference and also riddled with caves and tunnels that house the family and their friends: the Soup Dragon and her baby, the three Froglets, and a group of singing flowers. Contextual features and characters include a sideways lake, singing trees, a cloud that has emotions, flying "cows" and the Iron Chicken who lives in a nest of harvested metal parts from the detritus of outer space. The tone is existential-each day presents its own story-which is usually happily resolved by one of the children or another family member. The series is fittingly narrated by William Shatner (Captain Kirk from the Star Trek television series).
