Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This is a live action/animated series about a 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 Treeopolis, the animated version of his woods. While in the Treeopolis, 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 magic so he and his friends can resolve their challenge of the day. Messages like 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 are all reinforced.
