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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Groundling Marsh is a puppet-based show aimed at children ages 4 - 8. It is set in a magical swamp, featuring an ensemble cast of five characters; unique creatures called Groundlings, and a robot/computer named Stacks. Each episode contains a specific environmental issue in the marsh that the characters must address, with each Groundling approaching the problem in a unique way. The leader of the group is Eco, an ancient and wise woman who knows more than anyone about the ways of the world. Eco, provides guidance for all the groundlings, many times through moral lessons that focus on teamwork, compassion, honesty, caring, and always a reverence for the environment. Usually the character hearing the moral misinterprets or miscalculates how to manage the problem until the show comes to the final resolution, where the group has learned the lesson and reflects upon Eco's words. The Groundlings are rounded out by Maggie, the youngest and most exuberant; Galileo, the engineer type who built Stacks; Mud/Slinger, a creature with two dissimilar heads and two personalities, that considers itself an inventor; and a single antagonist, Hegdish, comes on the scene occasionally, and he is selfish, cynical and less concerned about the environment than the rest of the Groundlings. In the end, though the entire group understands you cannot give up conservation if you want to save Earth's environment.

Tree Fu Tom follows the adventures of Tom a boy who straps on a power belt and through the power of movement magic called 'Tree Fu', can transform into a tiny, mighty magical superhero and travel to a wondrous enchanted kingdom called Treetopolis that exists inside a tree in his back garden. Tree Fu Tom encourages viewers to be active by jumping, making physical moves and saying specific words to "send the magic" to Tom. Tree Fu Tom combines its innovative elements of heroic action, fantasy and magic, coupled with unique interactive physical activity. All of the Tree Fu movements are developed from therapeutic techniques used to help children with movement disorders, and they are also designed to enhance the development of all children at a crucial time in their growth. While in the 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 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.

The Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off 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 new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Artzooka! is a live action arts and crafts show encouraging creativity in children ages 7-10. The host, Jeremie, guides the audience step-by-step through a variety of projects that use recycled materials or tech gadgets found in most households. Each project typically includes an extension where Jeremie demonstrates a way that the simple craft can be individualized or enhanced to make a more interesting and advanced piece of art. Jeremie speaks directly to the audience, and the audience is frequently asked to guess what he is creating and also to send pictures to the show's website of the projects they create. Using the word "artzooka" as a verb, Jeremie models how the audience could envision how everyday materials can be reshaped and repurposed into art. There is typically a segment modeling this approach using everyday items from different environments; a classroom, a sewing bag, or from something shown in an animated short with the animated side-kick "Paper Bag". Overall, the show's theme of creativity and engagement is captured in it's tagline: "What will you Artzooka! today?

Tree Fu Tom combines its innovative elements of heroic action, fantasy and magic, coupled with unique interactive physical activity. All of the Tree Fu movements are developed from therapeutic techniques used to help children with movement disorders, and they are also designed to enhance the development of all children at a crucial time in their growth. While in the 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 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 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.

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 house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off 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 new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world."

The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Groundling Marsh is a puppet-based show aimed at children ages 4 - 8. It is set in a magical swamp, featuring an ensemble cast of five characters; unique creatures called Groundlings, and a robot/computer named Stacks. Each episode contains a specific environmental issue in the marsh that the characters must address, with each Groundling approaching the problem in a unique way. The leader of the group is Eco, an ancient and wise woman who knows more than anyone about the ways of the world. Eco, provides guidance for all the groundlings, many times through moral lessons that focus on teamwork, compassion, honesty, caring, and always a reverence for the environment. Usually the character hearing the moral misinterprets or miscalculates how to manage the problem until the show comes to the final resolution, where the group has learned the lesson and reflects upon Eco's words. The Groundlings are rounded out by Maggie, the youngest and most exuberant; Galileo, the engineer type who built Stacks; Mud/Slinger, a creature with two dissimilar heads and two personalities, that considers itself an inventor; and a single antagonist, Hegdish, comes on the scene occasionally, and he is selfish, cynical and less concerned about the environment than the rest of the Groundlings. In the end, though the entire group understands you cannot give up conservation if you want to save Earth's environment.
