Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Justin Time is an animated show specifically directed to the preschool audience and always conveys an embedded lesson; it is possible to understand and manage any problem you have by thinking about it creatively. Justin is a little boy who has two imaginary playmates, Olivia (who meets him on his travels) and Squidgy the sponge (who also lives in Justin's bedroom). When Justin has a problem or doesn't want to do something his mother has suggested he daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to places all around the world. On these adventures, he meets Olivia who guides him through an experience that demonstrates to Justin how he can solve his problem. The show provides many facts about the context the characters visit while on the adventure, but the central point is to teach a lesson about a social/emotional dilemma universally experienced by preschool children.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pajanimals focuses on teaching bedtime routines and practicing them consistently so children can get a good night's sleep. In each episode one of the main characters-Apollo the dog, Squacky, the duck, Sweetpea Sue, a horse, and Cowbella, a purple and white cow-has difficulty sleeping or faces a problem. They all pile onto one of the beds and are whisked off to a land of adventure that offers solutions to their problems. Each bed travels to a specific place for the adventure: Squacky' s bed goes to Ellie the octopus who lives in the Big Blue Sea and to Coach Whistler who lives in Land of Play; Cowbella's bed goes to Edwin, who lives in Storybook Land and to Jerry Bear, who lives in the Big Friendly Forest; Apollo's bed goes to the Moon who is in the Night Sky, and Sweetpea Sue's bed goes to Mr. Happy Birthday, a porcupine who resides in Birthday Land, and Bedtimes Bunny who lives in the Land of Hush. Each show ends with the problem resolved and the Pajanimals tucked into their beds for a good night's rest.

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. 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. 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. Coming to the rescue is the athlete Sportacus who lives in a zeppelin-like aircraft and receives signals from the kids or the Mayor whenever they need help. 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. 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 her 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 to say hello or provide 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.
