Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [32.1] The Adventures of Chuck & Friends is an action-comedy designed to inspire children (especially boys 4-7 years old) to approach playtime as an exciting, limitless adventure, in which everyone learns how to solve problems creatively, compassionately, and with a sense of humor. Storylines and characters aim to spark young children's imaginations, and encourage them to think of fun ways of turning their daydreams into action-packed adventures and games with their real-life friends, by approaching social situations with self-confidence and a willingness to try new things. Chuck and his friends will use problem-solving strategies such as teamwork, thinking creatively, taking responsibility for their actions, perseverance when they encounter obstacles, and asking for help when trying to handle a frustrating situation. The program also demonstrates how making mistakes is a natural part of any problem-solving, and how everyone has strengths and weaknesses.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [32.3 - This TV] Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside. After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. [32.3 - This TV] Zoo Clues is engaging and visually rich in its portrayal of animal characteristics and wide range of animal behaviors. Both older and younger audiences will appreciate this look across the amazing world of fascinating animals. Zoo Clues leaves viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and evocative comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety within the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together to reveal that what viewers see here is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world. The pull of the Mystery Animal visual quizzes and the fun of Animal Oddities make the show more interactive and is certain to lead to interesting discussion in the family and in the classroom.
