While the space station supports the missions of a bizarre and diverse array of aliens, the Smoothie Shack is the hub of social interaction for the galaxy. There is always something happening at Astroblast and everyone on the crew has plenty to learn to keep the community happy and on an even keel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town is a show featuring the importance of health, fitness, and being good friends. Set in a fantasy world known as Lazy Town, which is populated by inactive residents, we meet a visitor named Stephanie who is determined to coax her friends and relatives into adopting a healthful, active life style. She wins over her new friends, Ziggy, Stingy, Trixie and Pixel, convincing them to leave their gaming consoles and candy stashes at home so they can go outside and play. She persuades her uncle, Mayor Milford Meanswell, and his friend Ms. Busy Body to support her efforts. Robbie Rotten, who lives underground, and is determined to return Lazy Town to its former state of inactivity and quiet, constantly foils the characters' efforts. The athlete Sportacus, who lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help, frequently comes to their rescue. Sportacus has two goals, to keep the peace and to promote healthful, positive living. When Robbie Rotten is discovered and contained through comic pratfalls, he returns to his underground lair and all is well in Lazy Town, until another day and another time when Robbie will rise again.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Chica Show features a five-year-old "baby" chick that 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. Chica's parents were formerly entertainers in the vaudeville tradition and they regale the audience with stories and songs from their theatrical past. They enjoy and indulge Chica, who sometimes acts younger than her age and gets into all kinds of predicaments. Kelly uses fantasy play to transform herself, Chica, Bunji and Stitches into animated characters in another universe, who are struggling with a problem similar to the one Chica experienced in the Coop. Without fail, they find the problem can be solved and they carry that knowledge back to the Coop to use on another day.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the Poppy Cat's Adventures book series authored and illustrated by Lara Jones. A narrator, also named Lara, reads a story to her cat in each episode. This story stars the narrator's own Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmatian 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, and the grouchy Egbert, an arrogant and obnoxious badger who 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, says hello and provides misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. At the conclusion of her story, Lara closes her book and says good-bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.

Poppy Cat is based on the Poppy Cat's Adventures book series authored and illustrated by Lara Jones. A narrator, also named Lara, reads a story to her cat in each episode. This story stars the narrator's own Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmatian 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, and the grouchy Egbert, an arrogant and obnoxious badger who 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, says hello and provides misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. At the conclusion of her story, Lara closes her book and says good-bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.

Days/Times Program Regularly Scheduled SATURDAY - 11:30AM
Total times aired at regularly scheduled time 13
Length of Program 30 mins
Age of Target Child Audience from 2 years to 5 years
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 specifically aimed at teaching 2-5 year old children how to ask questions about nature and science and vigorously pursue the answers. The show encourages curiosity, research, and critical thinking. Each episode of the show is focused on a particular creature, object, or phenomenon that would be of interest to the target audience. For example, Luna might wonder how she can grow a plant without a seed and finds the answer through her inquiry process. The characters, Luna, Jupiter (her brother), and Clive (their pet ferret) embark on a research effort that takes the audience through each step that answers their overarching question. The show uses recurring features, signature phrases, and songs to cue the audience when they need to do research, when they transition to the adventure, and when they have reached the ending to review all they've learned.
