Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Tree Fu Tom is about the amazing adventures of a young boy called Tom, who with the power of 'movement magic' called 'Tree Fu,' can transform into a tiny but mighty magical super hero and travel to a wondrous enchanted kingdom called Treetopolis that exists in a tree in his back garden. Here he meets his magical friends: Twigs, Tom's best friend and side-kick, a silly and energetic acorn sprite; Zigzoo, a bubbly, eccentric tree frog inventor; Squirmtum, an odd-job woodlouse with a heart of gold; Ariela, a beautiful but rough-and-tumble, ranch-running butterfly; and Treetog, a Tree Fu Master and wise teacher. Set against the Treelings are the mischievous Mushas: comically bungling, no-good, foolish fungi, brother and sister duo Stink and Puffy. Tom and Twigs are inseparable as they become embroiled in amazing, action-packed adventures, which always lead to trouble, impending disaster and near catastrophe. When events run beyond their control, it is only with help from the audience performing Tree Fu moves and passing their magic through the screen that Tom can create spectacular Big World Magic and save the day! As the audience joins in with Tom, they too become superheros! All spell movements have been developed from those used to help children who have movement disorders and difficulties such as Dyspraxia, and the spell sequences have been designed by movement specialists/therapists to assist and enhance the development of all children - regardless of whether they have any movement challenges - at a crucial time in their growth. The movements of the Tree Fu spells that children are encouraged and guided to copy are designed to help teach children, and allow them to practice, as many as 12 key developmentally crucial skills/attributes that they need for all future movement. These skills are crucial for all complex movement, from everyday activities such as eating and dressing, to education and communication skills like writing, sports, games and any other physical activity. Tree Fu Tom also aims to empower children and build confidence and self-esteem. Program airs on KSBW's main digital channel 8.1.

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 Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem-solving process. The core educational content is primarily socioemotional 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. Program airs on KSBW's main digital channel 8.1.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazytown 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 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" (a.k.a. fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures. Program airs on KSBW's main digital channel 8.1.

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 Stitches 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. Program airs on KSBW's main digital channel 8.1.

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 a space when you've made a mess, rebound from a failure or embarrassing incident, or resist the urge to blame others for your mistakes.

In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters' eating and fitness habits are linked to problem-solving in their world.

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" (a.k.a. fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including 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. Tree Fu Tom is about the amazing adventures of a young boy called Tom, who with the power of 'movement magic' called 'Tree Fu,' can transform into a tiny but mighty magical super hero and travel to a wondrous enchanted kingdom called Treetopolis that exists in a tree in his back garden. Here he meets his magical friends: Twigs, Tom's best friend and side-kick, a silly and energetic acorn sprite; Zigzoo, a bubbly, eccentric tree frog inventor; Squirmtum, an odd-job woodlouse with a heart of gold; Ariela, a beautiful but rough-and-tumble, ranch-running butterfly; and Treetog, a Tree Fu Master and wise teacher. Set against the Treelings are the mischievous Mushas: comically bungling, no-good, foolish fungi, brother and sister duo Stink and Puffy. Tom and Twigs are inseparable as they become embroiled in amazing, action-packed adventures, which always lead to trouble, impending disaster and near catastrophe. When events run beyond their control, it is only with help from the audience performing Tree Fu moves and passing their magic through the screen that Tom can create spectacular Big World Magic and save the day! As the audience joins in with Tom, they too become superheros! All spell movements have been developed from those used to help children who have movement disorders and difficulties such as Dyspraxia, and the spell sequences have been designed by movement specialists/therapists to assist and enhance the development of all children - regardless of whether they have any movement challenges - at a crucial time in their growth. The movements of the Tree Fu spells that children are encouraged and guided to copy are designed to help teach children, and allow them to practice, as many as 12 key developmentally crucial skills/attributes that they need for all future movement. These skills are crucial for all complex movement, from everyday activities such as eating and dressing, to education and communication skills like writing, to sports, games and any other physical activity. Tree Fu Tom also aims to empower children and build confidence and self-esteem. Program airs on KSBW's main digital channel 8.1.
