Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearle is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Liberty Kids - This exciting series thrusts the viewer into the dramatic fray of the War of Independence, as seen through the eyes of two kids who've been taken in and given jobs as roving reporters by the Renaissance man of the Revolution, Ben Franklin. British teen Sarah sees both sides of the war and doesn't like either, while American teen Gregory is a passionate defender of freedom and liberty. French orphan Henri, who's also taken in by Ben, may be younger than his new "big brother" and "big sister", but he often sees most clearly. The series is packed with action, yet it confronts moral decisions head on. It's not concerned with the politics of history, but uses the drama of the events as a backdrop for the conflicts faced by its protagonists.

This exciting series thrusts the viewer into the dramatic fray of the War of Independence, as seen through the eyes of two kids who've been taken in and given jobs as roving reporters by the Renaissance man of the Revolution, Ben Franklin. British teen Sarah sees both sides of the war and doesn't like either, while American teen Gregory is a passionate defender of freedom and liberty. French orphan Henri, who's also taken in by Ben, may be younger than his new "big brother" and "big sister", but he often sees most clearly. The series is packed with action, yet it confronts moral decisions head on. It's not concerned with the politics of history, but uses the drama of the events as a backdrop for the conflicts faced by its protagonists.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearle is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.
