Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 6-10 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

Jane is raised in the Royal Court as a Knight-in-Training after she demonstrates her courage by leaving the castle to conquer the local dragon. The giant green Dragon, whose sense of humor exceeds his ferocity, instead becomes Jane's best friend and a part of the castle community. In each episode, Jane encounters a challenge that tests her problem-solving skills and requires her to demonstrate her strength of character, as a Knight of the King's Guard. Sometimes Jane learns a moral lesson, and other times she uses analytical ability to illustrate how a problem can be made less complicated and easily solved.

Justin Time features and little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, but also provides him with an experience that helps him solve his problem when he returns home. While on the adventure he is accompanied by Olive, a knowledgeable imaginary playmate, and Squidgy the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Justin's lessons involve learning, for example, that it takes focus to achieve success, failure can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find another way to get to your goal. Justin is all about self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

This story stars her Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmation 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. The grouchy Egbert, a badger who is both a snob and a bully 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. With the end of her story Lara closes her book and says good bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.
