Our bumbling detective is equipped with an incredible array of gadgets to help him in his never-ending battles against crime and corruption.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Heathcliff knows he is the best cat around! Never have we seen such self-confidence topped off with a heavy dose of vanity, cunning, ruthlessness and a mischievous love of gags. He cruises and struts down the street and watch out any person, cat or dog who gets in his way! Although he may terrorize the neighborhood, let an outsider try to push anyone around and he is a veritable tiger of defense. His love for the fancy feline Sonja is true-blue and though he regularly pummels Spike, the neighborhood bulldog, he is not without affection for him. Grandpa's brusque tolerance for Heathcliff is sometimes stretched to the breaking point, but Grandma usually intervenes and Iggy's pride in Heathcliff brings out his better nature. When Heathcliff is not grabbing fish from the market or teasing spike, he is full of love and good will for others, despite himself.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the planet Mobius, Sonic the Hedgehog is reunited with his long-lost siblings, Sonia and Manic. Together they form an underground band and fight to overthrow the evil Robotnik, who has outlawed anything fun and creative such as music, dancing or even books. Pursued by Robotnik's army of swatbots and the bounty hunters Sleet and Dingo, there's never a dull moment for Sonic and his siblings as they search for Queen Aleena, their mother and the rightful ruler of Mobius. They'll jump right in when it's time to fight the forces of evil but given half a chance, they'd rather make music. With some amazing instruments, the trio will play their outlaw brand of rhythm and melody whenever and wherever they can!
