Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Why is the sky blue? Why do we need the sun? What makes people grow? Children are naturally curious about the world around them. Now they have a special friend to help them explore their curiosities! Gilby is a curious puppy who loves to fetch answers to questions from little boys and girls. His friends Miss Kathy, B.E. Mann, Augustus Bustus and many others join Gilby in his daily adventures. Whether he is visiting a farm, going on a picnic or riding a train, Gilby has a great time learning about friendship, manners and music. At the same time, children are learning skills to prepare them for school. Each half-hour show follows the same format. The familiarity of each show creates a comfortable, safe learning environment and makes it easy for children to follow the show. Gilby encourages children to explore and learn by writing, calling and e-mailing with questions of their own. Educational consultants and child psychologists from Akron Public Schools work with show producers to link each show with lessons on colors, numbers, shapes, letters and opposites.
