Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Magic School Bus is an award-winning television series that's based on the children's books of the same name by former elementary school teacher and librarian, Joanna Cole. The show originally aired from 1994 to 1997 on PBS and was the first fully animated series on the network. While it's geared towards children between the ages of six and nine, younger children often enjoy this fun-filled favorite. The Magic School Bus appeals to children because of its animated format and frequent use of humor. Mrs. Frizzle, the children's eccentric teacher, loves science and wears silly outfits that reflect the current topic of study. Voiced by Lily Tomlin, Mrs. Frizzle encourages her students to have fun with science and is often heard saying, "Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!"

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pets focuses on the everyday lives of four anthropomorphic animals and their dysfunctional interactions with each other. They live in a filthy, rundown house, although it has working electricity and running water. There is never a human owner visible or even evident. The episodes are self-contained, and set entirely within the house. Most of the events that take place tend to be surreal, contain strong elements of black comedy and off-colour humour, and frequently make references to pop culture subjects. Pets also follows a rather traditional sitcom technique by using a "reset button". Each of the Pets have died at least once, only to reappear alive and well in the next episode. Events from previous episodes are never referred to, but unseen events from the past are often mentioned.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is a park fairy with a giant-sized heart and a wardrobe to match. Appointed by Fairy HQ, Pearlie keeps Jubilee Park in sparkling order. She's a type A personality full of nutty, over the top plans, parties and events for the park and its residents. She has assistance in Jasper, her right hand elf, although he prefers chilling out to real work. There's also Opal, an outback fairy from Australia sent to learn the ropes of park management from Pearlie. But all isn't perfect in Jubilee Park. Pearlie's cousin Saphira is jealous of Pearlie's popularity in the fairy world and desperately wants her job. With her incompetent assistant Ludwig, a bat with a heavy German accent, Saphira sets out to spoil perky Pearlie's day any way she can. Pearlie remains oblivious - always thinking the best of her cousin - while Opal and Jasper are more hip to Saphira's game. Saphira resides in the park's greenhouse, running a day-spa for well-heeled fairies, butterflies and the odd goblin fairy inspector.
