Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The childrens television show Mustard Pancakes takes place in the comfortable home of singing/storytelling grandmother Courtney Campbell. Courtney shares her home with four kind-hearted and child-like puppet characters: Oogleberry Ink Dog, a scruffy and thoughtful dog; Tiny Tina Ten Toes, a free spirited beagle who loves to dance; Mo, an innocent and playful Chocolate Labrador; and Mr. D, a slightly self-absorbed cat. Combining the art of storytelling and the element of song, the series presents everyday situations in an age-appropriate way to help children learn about solving life's little problems. Education consultant Shalom Fisch, Ph.D., who was a consultant for "Sesame Street," helped develop the educational goals for "Mustard Pancakes." Each episode of Mustard Pancakes begins with a situation or problem that is affecting one or more members of the household. The storyline is developed through communication between the puppets and Courtney, until the whole thing reaches a point where everyone needs to take time for a story. Courtney generally begins with a personal story about her life, which she relates to the current conundrum the family is facing. Following her story, the puppets participate by acting out a story also based on the recurrent theme, and Courtney sings a song related to the story. Through the stories and discussions, the puppets are able to resolve the situation or problem using what they have learned. At the end of the day, Oogleberry summarizes the lesson of the day as he writes in his journal. The episode then ends at the round table, where Courtney opens a package she's received containing something interesting that pertains to the story of the day. After pointing out the place of the packages origin on a globe, Courtney holds up a book about the place and encourages kids to read and learn more.
