Justin is a little boy who wants to master his destiny, have great adventures and solve problems.

Through the daydreams, Justin learns that it takes focus to achieve success, failure can teach what to do the next time to succeed and if one way to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find another way to get to your goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This program is anchored by Sportacus, a fit and agile hero, whose "krytonite" is sugar, which makes him instantly lethargic. Sportacus and the program's cast of child characters are challenged in each episode with an issue or dilemma, and are opposed in their attempts to complete their mission by Robbie Rotten, who seeks to return Lazytown to its former lazy ways. The program seeks to impart to preschool and early school-aged children the importance of healthy living, and to help them understand the value of developing sound eating and physical exercise habits, while also providing them positive messages about friendship, empathy, self-respect, truthfulness and other age-appropriate life lessons.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Noodle and Doodle is an instructional series that features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. The show is hosted by Sean, who drives around in a double decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen all ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something for display in the child's home. Sean is accompanied by Doggity, an ever faithful Beagle who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe and kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. While the show will be enjoyed by preschoolers, the projects are very practical and engaging to implement for children ages 5-8. The art projects typically feature lessons on recycling materials for re-use in making art and always demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something useful to achieve a completely different goal.
