Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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.

SHELLDON is an animated series that takes place in Shell Land, a mythical undersea world populated by characters from a wide array of water-dwelling species. The main character, Shelldon, is an orphaned yoka shell mollusk adopted by the Clam family and living with them in the family-owned Charming Clam Inn.

Shelldon and his buddies, Herman (a hermit crab) and Connie (a cowrie shell), always work together and solve problems that they face in school or in the community. A recurring problem is to staunch the plans of the local millionaire, Cecil Cracken, whose greed puts making money over protecting the environment. Dr. Shell is typically the children's key provider of knowledge and other resources. In each episode, the children learn a significant social-emotional lesson and also share information relating to their ocean habitat and environmental protection.

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
