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 and 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. Earth to Luna is a Brazilian animated series about 12 year old girl, Luna, who loves science and the outdoors. There is nothing she doesn't question, and she shares everything she learns with her little brother, Jupiter, her parents or her friend Alice, and Clyde, her pet ferret. 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 Clyde 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. Poppy Cat based on a 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, including the 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. 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 that include 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. Astroblast, based on the book series by author and illustrator Bob Kolar, is set on a space station in an unknown solar system. Five animal characters and one three-eyed octopus of unknown derivation populate the station. Each episode begins with an everyday conversation or incident that grows into a predicament needing a solution. While these predicaments take place in a fantasy environment, the issues and resolutions resonate for a preschool audience. Through comedy and zippy action, our target audience sees how the characters learn lessons for practical living such as how to keep track of things that belong to you, practice good habits, clean up when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or an embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.

Earth to Luna is a Brazilian animated series about 12 year old girl, Luna, who loves science and the outdoors. There is nothing she doesn't question, and she shares everything she learns with her little brother, Jupiter, her parents or her friend Alice, and Clyde, her pet ferret. 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 Clyde 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. 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 that include playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.
