Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse-click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In this context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem-solving -- how do kids get the "right" information and make proper use of it. What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This animated program has four educational goals: to celebrate the power of inventing imaginative stories, to introduce basic literary concepts, to help viewers develop listening and comprehension skills, and to enrich vocabulary through storytelling. Pinky Dinky Doo, a 7-year-old girl, lives in the "great big city" with her parents. When a problem arises, Pinky dances her way to a cardboard story box and uses a piece of chalk and her imagination to tell a story. During the made-up story, Pinky must "think big" at which point she comes up with an often clever and wacky solution to the problem. To encourage listening skills, Pinky then invites children to play games where they review details about the story. Children are helped to increase their vocabularies with each episode's "Great Big Fancy Word," which is featured several times during each episode. On Saturday, August 27, 2011, the station preempted this program for breaking news and live coverage of "Hurricane Irene."
