In each episode Luna and her brother develop questions about whatever they find curious, e.g., what goes on inside the snails' shell?" or "Why does a firefly blink?" In pursuit of answers, Luna, Jupiter and Clive go off on an imaginary adventure to do their research. They transform into the object or creature they are studying so they can personally experience the answers to their questions. When the threesome is finished with the "field trip" Luna summarizes everything they have learned with a show and a song.

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. The mission of Eyewitness Kids News is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is educational as well as highly entertaining. The target audience for the program is 13 to 16 year olds. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal on kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience in a way that makes a real difference in their lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none that a young audience can literally identify with. TKN is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of Eyewitness Kids News is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is educational as well as highly entertaining. The target audience for the program is 13 to 16 year olds. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal on kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience in a way that makes a real difference in their lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none that a young audience can literally identify with. TKN is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers.
