The fictional city Busytown is an enchanting place that's abuzz with energy and life. Epiosodes are divided into multiple segments with different themes.

Each episode includes two song segments in which the first, "Imagine That", teaches various things like general science to how banks work. The second song segment that teaches safety is called "Play It Safe". The aim of the series is to stimulate imagination and foster vicarious play, teach pro-social behavior (such as generosity, friendliness, persistence, altruism, understanding of other points of view, empathy, acceptance of other's idiosyncrasies, help children move beyond family attachments to the world of friendships and community, help children develop skills on which academic learning depends such as attention, language, memory, active processing of a story and an interest in reading.
