Set in medieval times, Jane and the Dragon is an animated show based on Martin Bayntons best-selling book about a middle-class medieval girl named Jane. 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 Janes 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 Kings Guard. Sometimes Jane learns a moral lesson, and other times she uses her analytical ability to illustrate how a problem can be made less complicated and easily solved.

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 childrens 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 4- to 8-year-old range, episodes focus 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. Pearlies nemesis and cousin, Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlies good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, Pearlie approaches 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.
