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, character's 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 the 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.

"Poppy Cat", based on the book series by Lara Jones, models the use of imagination and storytelling to encourage creative thinking in viewers. Each episode features the narrator, Lara, reading a story about Poppy Cat to her own cat (who is also named Poppy). She weaves an exciting tale following her imagination, which leads her to distant lands reached by boat, plane, hot air balloon or train. Each story features Poppy Cat, as the leader of a group of animal friends, a resident bully Egbert the badger and other occasionally recurring characters. A prevailing message emerges within each episode to be nice to your friends and always work together. There remains an overarching implicit message within every episode as well; think creatively and exercise your mind through reading and storytelling - for these activities always lead to enjoyment and adventure.

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, judgement and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure - a fantasy transformation to animation - where Bunji and Stitches 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "The Pajanimals" are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in a house with their off-screen mother and father. They reside primarily in their bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they complete their nighttime routine of brushing teeth and conversing quietly before falling to sleep. The quiet time always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a brand new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the social/emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced throughout the adventure. The children return home in time to get ample rest, confident about facing their issues when they awaken the following day.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Justin Time" features a little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, providing him with an experience to help solve his problem when he returns home. Justin is accompanied by two imaginary friends throughout his adventures; Olive, a knowledgeable playmate, and Squidgy, the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Some examples of Justin's lessons involve learning that it takes focus to achieve success; our failures can teach what we need to do to succeed next time; or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find an alternative way to achieve your goal. Justin promotes self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

"Noodle and Doodle", an instructional series, features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. Host, Sean, drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something to display within the child's home. Sean's side-kick, Doggity, is an ever-faithful beagle who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe, set in a kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. The art projects typically promote utilizing recycled materials in order to demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something that achieves a completely different goal.

In each episode Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgement and inter-personal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure - a fantasy transformation to animation - where Bunji and Stitches 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.
