Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town encourages fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters' eating and fitness habits are linked to problem solving in their world. The lead character is Stephanie, a young girl who guides the audience through the story as she and her friends ("human" puppets) and her Uncle (Mayor Milford Meanswell) navigate life within Lazy Town. Robbie Rotten, the underground spy and influencer who personifies the ethos of Lazy Town, is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids have difficulty with Robbie Rotten, Sportacus, a gymnast/athlete prepared to answer any call for help, comes to the rescue from his home in a zeppelin-like aircraft that hovers over earth. The underlying themes of Lazy Town stress the importance of eating "sports candy" (aka fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Tree Fu Tom, is a live action/animated series about a little 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 in Treetopolis, the fantasy version of his woods. While in Treetopolis, 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 "Big World" magic so he and his friends can resolve their challenge of the day. Educational messages reinforce positive socio-emotional content, with examples that model: 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, or relying on teamwork in order to accomplish a goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is 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 Stiches 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.

The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmation who zips around on a skateboard; Alma, a southern belle bunny who is ultra feminine and sweetly dramatic, Mo, a little mouse who tries his best to do as much as everyone else despite his size; Owl, the wise one who is prone to neck rolls and commentary when things irritate him or don't make sense. The grouchy Egbert, a badger who is both a snob and a bully refuses to play with the group and invariably attempts to sabotage their adventures. Occasionally Hilda, a forgetful and ditzy pigeon who flies into their adventures, appears to say hello or provide misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. With the end of her story Lara closes her book and says good bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. After due review of internal station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee hereby certifies as follows: (i) the only programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under that the station broadcast this quarter are disclosed in this report (including in this Question 17) and (ii) the licensee fully complied with the FCC's commercial limits, as specified in 47 C.F.R. Section 73.670, with respect to these programs. On June 12, 2009, the station stopped broadcast of its analog signal therefore question 7b and 7c no longer apply. CHANNEL 13 WEATHER LAB AT THE SCIENCE CENTER OF IOWA Each weekday, children from all over central Iowa interact with Channel 13 Meteorologists at our satellite interactive weather studio located at the new Science Center of Iowa. Not only are there discussions about weather, but also television production and the magic "green screen" plus children see our live weather broadcasts at noon and 5pm each day and receive educational weather handouts. "PAYS FOR A'S" PROGRAM WHO-TV has teamed up with some local business to reward good students with our "Pays for A's' program. Students are encouraged to bring in their report cards to a sponsor location. With just one top grade, each student receives a prize pack including arcade games, ice cream and discounts to a local amusement park. And three times a school year, we draw one winner for 10 free passes to a local amusement park. I-CUB ANTHEM BUDDIES Channel 13, in cooperation with the Iowa Cubs, created a unique opportunity for children ages 7 to 12 to experience what it's like to stand on the baseball field next to a big league player and sing the National Anthem. More than 50 teams from across our viewing area participated. NATIONAL BALLOON CLASSIC This annual 8-day event is geared directly to families and secondarily to children. The event primarily has great entertainment value but also deals with the physics of what makes hot air balloons fly. Patrons are allowed up-close to talk with pilots as they fill their balloons first with cold air and then hot air. There are also many children's activities that take place each day of the event. WORLD FOOD AND MUSIC FESTIVAL This 3 day event in the heart of Des Moines focusses on educating and celebrating every culture in our community through food and music. In 2013, more than 70,000 Iowans...including thousands of family...took part in children's entertainment and educational activities. THE GOLDEN APPLE AWARD Each month during the school year, WHO-TV and a corporate partner honor one teacher in our viewing area that goes beyond the call of duty. Nominations are taken from letters written by children at the school that think their teacher should be recognized. Then on the last Monday of the month, we visit the school and surprise our deserving teacher with the honor at a school assembly. It teaches children appreciation of all teachers and motivates other teachers to aspire to achieve the same recognition from their students. Also enclosed in this file is our record of Public Service Announcements geared to children 16 and under that aired in the 3rd quarter 2013.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is 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 Stiches 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.
