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's Wild Life 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's Wild Life 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's Wild Life 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's Wild Life 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's Wild Life 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. Set in medieval times, Jane and the Dragon is an animated show that hails from Martin Baynton's best-selling books about a middle-class girl named Jane. She 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 friends and a part of the castle community. In each episode, Jane encounters a challenge 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.
