"Turbo Dogs" is a show about six canine friends-Dash, GT, Clutch, Stinkbert, Strut, and Mags-who have their own distinct characteristics but share a love of racing cars. The fastest dogs in Racerville, the Turbo Dogs often compete with one another in races. The dogs each have their own racers, which they maintain regularly, and that are equipped with individual GPS systems to help and guide them. Each story begins with one of the Turbo Dogs encountering a problem that must be resolved while preparing to compete. Usually, the Turbo Dog learns his/her lesson through experience and accountability for negative behavior. Social-emotional messages about sportsmanship, teamwork, cooperation, and fairness developed in the story are emphasized in a separate tag at the end of each episode.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "The Magic School Bus" is based on a series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole. The show features the ingenious Ms. Frizzle, an elementary school teacher and intrepid explorer who piles her students into her Magic School Bus and takes them on amazing field trips to impossible locations. The goal of each field trip is to answer questions or learn many new things about the place the class visits. Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body, or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line.

The main character, Shelldon, is an orphaned yoka shell mollusk who was adopted by the Clam family, and now lives with them in the family-owned Charming Clam Inn. Dr. Shell, an elder and venerated inventor, and Connie, a cowry shell classmate of Shelldon's, also live at the inn. Shelldon, and his buddies Herman (a Hermit crab) and Connie, always work together and solve problems that they face in school or in the community. A recurring problem is to staunch the plans of the local millionaire, Cecil Cracken, whose greed puts making money over protecting the environment. Dr. Shell is typically the children's key provider of knowledge and other resources. In each episode, the children learn a significant socio-emotional lesson and also share information relating to their ocean habitat and environmental protection.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Willa's Wild Life" is a new animated series centered on a six-year-old girl, and her menagerie of animals. Willa lives at home with her father and pets - an elephant, a giraffe, a pair of performing seals, a bear, penguins, and lots of rabbits. In each episode, Willa faces a challenge at home, in school or in her neighborhood. With her animals and best friend Dooley as key elements of her team, Willa works on solutions to overcome her challenge. Together they find ways to maintain healthy friendships, experience success, develop competence and become altruistic. With help from her animal friends, Willa figures out how to earn the things she wants by helping others. She learns to appreciate the friends that she has, rather than trying to change to fit in with the "cool" group. She realizes that asking questions is better than jumping to conclusions. Whether at school, home, or in the neighborhood, Willa finds a way to analyze her situation and learn from experience.

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 and 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 4-8 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.

"Willa's Wild Life" is a new animated series centered on a six-year-old girl, and her menagerie of animals. Willa lives at home with her father and pets - an elephant, a giraffe, a pair of performing seals, a bear, penguins, and lots of rabbits. In each episode, Willa faces a challenge at home, in school or in her neighborhood. With her animals and best friend Dooley as key elements of her team, Willa works on solutions to overcome her challenge. Together they find ways to maintain healthy friendships, experience success, develop competence and become altruistic. With help from her animal friends, Willa figures out how to earn the things she wants by helping others. She learns to appreciate the friends that she has, rather than trying to change to fit in with the "cool" group. She realizes that asking questions is better than jumping to conclusions. Whether at school, home, or in the neighborhood, Willa finds a way to analyze her situation and learn from experience.
