Each character exhibits unique abilities and traits that, combined with their new knowledge, help them problem-solve their way through their journeys. Using an integrated approach to target diverse learning styles, the show communicates its educational messages through narratives and a two-part information segment at the end of each story.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS is a show that features the most adventuresome teacher on the planet, Ms. Frizzle, and her group of students who dutifully follow her approach to education-by taking magical field trips to learn about anything that interests her or them. All the students are curious, but with each one, there is often a personal problem that needs solving and the field trip has a way of dovetailing with the personal challenge to get everything all worked out. The class has been on 52 field trips, traveling in a magic bus that can transform its shape and power source, so it can travel through any environment, from the bottom of the ocean to outermost space. Ms. Frizzle can handle it all, from driving the bus, navigating unfamiliar terrain, to guiding the children's learning through inquiry. She is undeterred and rarely discouraged and expects no less from her students. Ms. Frizzle is amazingly understanding and permissive in her approach and the children are ambitiously curious about the world as a result. It's not just the bus that's magic

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas is an entertaining and educational half-hour program that explores the world of animal wildlife, promoting a better understanding of how various animal species live and what they need to survive. With an entertaining narrative, the series combines focused examinations of certain topics such as Animal Appetites (which explores the various diets of animals along with information about how animals catch and eat their food, how diets determine their lifestyle, etc.), Animal Antics, (a hilarious look at the crazy physical antics and talents of certain species), Animal Babies (an intimate look at babies of various species, how they are born, how they are raised and the difficulties and delights of growing up), along with shows which focus solely on certain animals such as elephants, bears, and monkeys. In these shows a thorough and entertaining exploration of the specific animal takes the viewer into the world of that animal as we see where it lives, how it eats, how it plays, how the family unit operates, and what threatens and supports its survival. Animal Atlas also promotes responsibility toward wildlife issues by educating the viewer about endangered species and wildlife habits, as well as informing viewers how to support wildlife conservation.

PEARLIE recounts the weekly escapades of an optimistic, amiable fairy who has been appointed by Fairy HQ to maintain order in Jubilee Park. She lives among a dozen assorted characters, including her fairy best friends, Opal and Jasper, a garden elf, a wood nymph, possum, bats, other fairies, rats, a small colony of fleas, a lizard and her arch-rival, Saphira, who is also her fairy cousin. While Pearlie is very likable, she is a bit of a busy-body who likes to arrange things according to over-ambitious plans that ultimately get her in trouble. She gets along with everyone so, ultimately, every problem is solved and Pearlie learns a lesson. However, her greatest challenges are usually presented by her one enemy, the bully and diva, Saphira. Fortunately, Pearlie rises to Saphira's challenges, not with meanness, but by outwitting her. Overall, learning is a constant process for Pearlie because she has big responsibilities, taking care of an entire little community, but she is indomitable and tenacious and ends up preserving order and happiness in Jubilee Park.

THE ZULA PATROL is an animated show about six extraterrestrial characters-Captain Bula, his copilot Zeeter, Professor Multo, their pet, Gorgo, and their flying dictionaries, Wizzy and Wigg-who learn key science concepts as they explore the galaxy through space missions. Often, the group encounters the evil Dark Truder and his talking toupee minion, Traxie, and must thwart Truder's poorly planned schemes to take over the universe. Each character exhibits unique abilities and traits that, combined with their new knowledge, help them problem-solve their way through their journeys. Using an integrated approach to target diverse learning styles, the show communicates its educational messages through narratives and a two-part information segment at the end of each story.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas is an entertaining and educational half-hour program that explores the world of animal wildlife, promoting a better understanding of how various animal species live and what they need to survive. With an entertaining narrative, the series combines focused examinations of certain topics such as Animal Appetites (which explores the various diets of animals along with information about how animals catch and eat their food, how diets determine their lifestyle, etc.), Animal Antics, (a hilarious look at the crazy physical antics and talents of certain species), Animal Babies (an intimate look at babies of various species, how they are born, how they are raised and the difficulties and delights of growing up), along with shows which focus solely on certain animals such as elephants, bears, and monkeys. In these shows a thorough and entertaining exploration of the specific animal takes the viewer into the world of that animal as we see where it lives, how it eats, how it plays, how the family unit operates, and what threatens and supports its survival. Animal Atlas also promotes responsibility toward wildlife issues by educating the viewer about endangered species and wildlife habits, as well as informing viewers how to support wildlife conservation.
