Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Each episode begins as Cake and her friends gather to discuss their personal lives: events at school, personal aspirations, problems, expectations, friendships, worries in short, the array of issues that most young adolescents confront on an almost daily basis. The four characters are highly supportive of each other, and they clearly and concretely display positive interpersonal interactions. Amy, as the youngest, frequently asks the kinds of questions that enable Cake, Miracle, and/or Benjamin to engage in some pretty straightforward prosocial teaching helping her with everything from the meaning of a current verbal expression, to how to deal with the fact that her mother won't let her get her ears pierced. Cake and her crew consistently model mutual respect and admiration, supportiveness, and the ability to engage in the kinds of cooperative give-and-take necessary for the successful functioning of almost any group. Much of Cake's and her friends, cooperative effort in each episode is directed toward conceptualizing and producing their weekly TV show, the aim of which is to teach pre-adolescents how to express their own originality and creativity through variety of different handicraft projects. To this end, each week the cast assembles the necessary components for each craft, then produces a step-by-step demonstration of how the elements can be assembled. The characters in Cake and the lessons they teach encourage individuality, creativity, and just plain having fun, as they provide young viewers with a platform for self expression and self-confidence as they promote new ways to express creativity and model highly successful, positive social relationships.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. WILD AMERICA is targeted to children ages 13-16. The key educational objective of the program is to familiarize children with the animals of the North American content, their interaction with other animals and their environment. Throughout the series emphasis will be placed upon protecting endangered species and the impact that humans have while interacting in their environment. Each episode of the series will be specific to a particular animal. Topics will range from basic food gather, mating, natural enemies, relationships to other animals, and the interaction of the specific ecology on the survival of the species. We expect that children viewing the program will achieve a greater understanding of nature and specific animal species because of the up-close and detailed photography of the series. Through this understanding, it is hoped children will better relate to the natural environment as it exist in North American and learn to protect its natural species.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. In each episode, an attractive dance instructor demonstrates a series of new and demanding Hip-hop dance steps, challenging each pair of contestants to incorporate those moves into their own dance routine. During the portrayal of the demonstration of the new steps, the competitors practicing of those steps, and the dance competition itself, viewers are encouraged to participate in the action by learning the steps and getting up and dancing along with the contestants. Frequent comments by both the program host and by the dance instructor are designed to engage viewers in the activity. In addition, by incorporating techniques such as split screens, pop-up screens, and rolling text messages, dance is associated with exercise and good health throughout the program, and viewers are continually encouraged to get up and dance. (It should be noted that Hip-hop demands a great deal of energy, endurance, and skill to master an ideal device to engage young viewers in relatively vigorous physical activity). Both on-screen talent and pop-up screens promote participation in dance by linking it to various other sports (i.e., via improved balance, coordination, timing), to good health, and to increased energy and attractiveness. Episodes also include occasional references to historical and cultural facts related to dance. Indeed, anything that makes dance attractive, thus encourages young viewers to get up and move, is considered fair game.

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 children's 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 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses 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. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach 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.

The Magic School Bus is based on series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole.

Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body, or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line.

Each episode begins as Cake and her friends gather to discuss their personal lives: events at school, personal aspirations, problems, expectations, friendships, worries in short, the array of issues that most young adolescents confront on an almost daily basis. The four characters are highly supportive of each other, and they clearly and concretely display positive interpersonal interactions. Amy, as the youngest, frequently asks the kinds of questions that enable Cake, Miracle, and/or Benjamin to engage in some pretty straightforward prosocial teaching helping her with everything from the meaning of a current verbal expression, to how to deal with the fact that her mother won't let her get her ears pierced. Cake and her crew consistently model mutual respect and admiration, supportiveness, and the ability to engage in the kinds of cooperative give-and-take necessary for the successful functioning of almost any group. Much of Cake's and her friends, cooperative effort in each episode is directed toward conceptualizing and producing their weekly TV show, the aim of which is to teach pre-adolescents how to express their own originality and creativity through variety of different handicraft projects. To this end, each week the cast assembles the necessary components for each craft, then produces a step-by-step demonstration of how the elements can be assembled. The characters in Cake and the lessons they teach encourage individuality, creativity, and just plain having fun, as they provide young viewers with a platform for self expression and self-confidence as they promote new ways to express creativity and model highly successful, positive social relationships.

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 children's 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 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses 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. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach 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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. In each episode, an attractive dance instructor demonstrates a series of new and demanding Hip-hop dance steps, challenging each pair of contestants to incorporate those moves into their own dance routine. During the portrayal of the demonstration of the new steps, the competitors practicing of those steps, and the dance competition itself, viewers are encouraged to participate in the action by learning the steps and getting up and dancing along with the contestants. Frequent comments by both the program host and by the dance instructor are designed to engage viewers in the activity. In addition, by incorporating techniques such as split screens, pop-up screens, and rolling text messages, dance is associated with exercise and good health throughout the program, and viewers are continually encouraged to get up and dance. (It should be noted that Hip-hop demands a great deal of energy, endurance, and skill to master an ideal device to engage young viewers in relatively vigorous physical activity). Both on-screen talent and pop-up screens promote participation in dance by linking it to various other sports (i.e., via improved balance, coordination, timing), to good health, and to increased energy and attractiveness. Episodes also include occasional references to historical and cultural facts related to dance. Indeed, anything that makes dance attractive, thus encourages young viewers to get up and move, is considered fair game.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Magic School Bus is based on series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole. The show features the ingenious Ms. Frizzle, an elementary school teacher and intrepid explorer who piles her students into her Magic School Bus and takes them on amazing field trips to impossible locations. The goal of each field trip to answer questions or learn many new things about the place the class visits. Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body, or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line.
