Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Willa's Wild Life," based on the book An Octopus Followed Me Home, by Dan Yaccarino, is an animated series centered on a six-year-old girl and her menagerie of animals. Willa lives at home with her father and pets - an elephant, a giraffe, a pair of performing seals, a bear, penguins, and lots of rabbits. In each episode, Willa faces a challenge at home, in school or in her neighborhood. With her animals and best friend Dooley as key elements of her team, Willa works on solutions to overcome her challenge. Together they find ways to maintain healthy friendships, experience success, develop competence, and become altruistic. With help from her animal friends, Willa figures out how to earn the things she wants by helping others. She learns to appreciate the friends that she has rather than trying to change to fit in with the "cool" group. She realizes that asking questions is better than jumping to conclusions. Whether at school, home or in the neighborhood, Willa finds a way to analyze her situation and learn from experience.

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 a 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 is 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 them 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 ages 6-10 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a social-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line.

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.

Set in medieval times, "Jane and the Dragon" is an animated show based on Martin Baynton's best-selling book about a middle-class medieval girl named Jane. Jane is raised in the Royal Court as a Knight-in-Training after she demonstrates her courage by leaving the castle to conquer the local dragon. The giant green Dragon, whose sense of humor exceeds his ferocity, instead becomes Jane's best friend and a part of the castle community. In each episode, Jane encounters a challenge that tests her problem-solving skills and requires her to demonstrate her strength of character as a Knight of the King's Guard. Sometimes Jane learns a moral lesson, and other times she uses her analytical ability to illustrate how a problem can be made less complicated and easily solved.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. THE ZULA PATROL is an animated show about six extraterrestrial characters-Captain Bula, his copilot Zeeter, Professor Multo, their pet, Gorgo, and their flying dictionaries, Wizzy and Wigg-who learn key science concepts as they explore the galaxy through space missions. Often, the group encounters the evil Dark Truder and his talking toupee minion, Traxie, and must thwart Truder's poorly planned schemes to take over the universe. Each character exhibits unique abilities and traits that, combined with their new knowledge, help them problem-solve their way through their journeys. Using an integrated approach to target diverse learning styles, the show communicates its educational messages through narratives and a two-part information segment at the end of each story.

On Sunday, March 10, Pearlie was scheduled on the log to air at 5:30pm. Unfortunately, out listings were not correct and showed that Missing was scheduled in that time period. Pearlie is what aired. On Sunday, March 17, Pearlie was scheduled to air at 3:30pm. Due to a sports over-run, the show actually aired at 4:09pm. On Sunday, March 25, Willa's Wildlife and Pearlie were scheduled to air at 9am and 9:30am respectively.

Together they find ways to maintain healthy friendships, experience success, develop competence, and become altruistic. With help from her animal friends, Willa figures out how to earn the things she wants by helping others. She learns to appreciate the friends that she has rather than trying to change to fit in with the "cool" group. She realizes that asking questions is better than jumping to conclusions. Whether at school, home or in the neighborhood, Willa finds a way to analyze her situation and learn from experience.
