Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Raggs is a musical & educational preschool series starring five colorful canines. They are not your average dogs - they're also talented musicians who make great rock 'n' roll music as The Raggs Band. With over 200 original songs, the power of the music & humor stimulate children to become actively involved in learning. Raggs introduces children to elements that span the preschool curriculum, working to nurture their sense of self & others, and to foster a strong motivation to learn and achieve. Each episode follows the band through engaging, emotional and humorous stories that rock the house and explore issues faced by real kids. The character's chemistry and friendship is immediately evident as they work through a series of creative and often humorous steps to find a successful conclusion to everyday challenges. Music is an integral part of this fast-paced show and provides a hook to engage young viewers as the band goes from one adventure to the next. Each program is based on one main theme that promotes social and academic readiness while also addressing specific preschool curriculum topics such as: emergent literacy, Mathematics, Science and discovery, social studies, arts & movement. Each show also focuses on the development of social and emotional skills, and models cooperation between friends. The format is innovative and contemporary in its ability to knit together and reinforce a single theme through the use of various segments: live action clubhouse segments, animation shorts, music videos and interviews with children by the band's wisecracking pet cat, Dumpster. Interactive studio concerts featuring real-life fans and a "Wag & Wiggle" dance segment promote movement and physical fitness -- adding another dimension and heightening the entertainment value.

The main character is Stephanie who arrives in town and urges her new friends Ziggy, Trixie, Stingy, and Pixel to go outside and be active, instead of staying inside and playing video games all day. Her uncle, the bumbling Mayor Milford Meanswell, enlists the help of Sportacus, a self-described "slightly above-average hero". It is Sportacus' job to inspire the kids to play outside, and to help solve low-key emergencies that occur from time to time. However, all this does not sit well with Robbie Rotten, a lazy man who lives in an underground lair hidden just on the edge of town. Most of the episodes involve Robbie Rotten dressing up in one of his numerous costumes and trying to make Sportacus leave town forever so he can encourage Stephanie and the LazyTown kids to be lazy again.

Her uncle, the bumbling Mayor Milford Meanswell, enlists the help of Sportacus, a self-described "slightly above-average hero". It is Sportacus' job to inspire the kids to play outside, and to help solve low-key emergencies that occur from time to time. However, all this does not sit well with Robbie Rotten, a lazy man who lives in an underground lair hidden just on the edge of town. Most of the episodes involve Robbie Rotten dressing up in one of his numerous costumes and trying to make Sportacus leave town forever so he can encourage Stephanie and the LazyTown kids to be lazy again.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. LazyTown is the laziest town you'll ever visit. Or at least, it would be, if the town grump, Robbie Rotten, had his way. Unfortunately for him, Stephanie, the mayor's vibrant pink-haired niece (played by Broadway's own Julianna Rose Mauriello), has come to LazyTown and she would rather have the kids outdoors playing sports with her than indoors playing video games all the time. She and her uncle enlist the help of Sportacus 10, a superhero with great athletic skills and abilities, who encourages the kids to get out and play, run around, dance or whatever else it takes to get their move on! Soon everyone's out joining Stephanie and Sportacus in all sorts of fun adventures including Stephanie's Uncle Milford (Mayor Meanswell to everyone else); Bessie Busybody, the town gossip; Ziggy, a cheerful kid who loves candy. Stingy, a seven-year-old who sometimes lets jealousy and selfishness get the best of him; Trixie, the smartest of the kids but she's also the most mischievous; and Pixel, an addictive video gamer and technology wiz.
