Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Raven, a young teen who has inherited her grandmothers trait of clairvoyance, is a normal, happy and resourceful young woman. However, at times Raven worries that she is a freak because of her clairvoyant abilities. She has a younger brother, Cory, age ten. They are typical siblings, with the tension and rivalry that most siblings experience. Raven attends public high school. Both parents are employed outside the home. They are loving parents, and good disciplinarians. Raven is often responsible for the after-school safety and activities of her brother, Cory. Her closest friends are Chelsea and Eddie, who are fiercely committed to environmental issues and sports, respectively. Ravens parents and closest friends know about her visions of the immediate future. The premonitions often prompt her to attempt to intervene before trouble occurs. Sometimes Ravens interventions backfire, and at other times the foreseen events come true, bringing embarrassment or sadness. Raven learns valuable lessons from her blunders and transgressions. Thus, the visions set up issues that the Core episodes of this series explore. The series uses humor to convey strong, relevant messages about growing up. Some of the issues that are the focus of episodes are sibling rivalry, popularity, loyalty, self acceptance, dealing with authority school and parental, honesty, coping with jealousy, and consequences of lying or cheating.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The show profiles athletes from various sports who demonstrate talent as well as commitment and drive. The featured players are positive role models for kids. Although both male and female athletes are shown, the majority are male. Athletes are mostly African American and Caucasian and come from various socioeconomic backgrounds. SPORTS STARS OF TOMORROW is a weekly magazine series that showcases up and coming young athletes whose talent and hard work are making them winners. Each episode includes a variety of news features that highlight the featured athletes success in sports, as well as the hard work thats gotten them that far. Family members and coaches are introduced, too, allowing viewers to get a better idea of the many people involved in each athletes achievement. Although the show focses on the players athletic prowess and the awards and scholarships theyve received because of their talents it also presents these young athletes as regular kids, many of whom spend their time volunteering, tutoring children with learning disabilities, and even being elected prom queen. Sports Stars of Tomorrow is clearly aimed at young people who are interested in sports as well as young hopefuls who dream of becoming elite athletes themselves. But the series also reflects some of the realities of contemporary sports. Many more young men than young women are profiled, and the majority of the feature players are either Caucasian or African American. In an environment in which athletes, inappropriate behavior, and greed are often linked, Sports Stars of Tomorrow reminds us that there are many good, talented kids working hard to achieve their athletic goals and to become solid members of their communities. The featured kids are truly positive role models not just for future generations of athletes, but for all young people.

He faces the intellectual, physical and social challenges that all teens face, all the while conscious that his lifes work will be to rule fairly and nobly.

If Kuzco fails at his academic requirements Yzma stands a chance to become Empress, Kuzco, who is by nature inclined to take the easy way out of tough situations, struggles to complete his assignments and stay on track. Only if he remains steadfast, studies hard, learns from his mistakes, graduates, and can relate to his citizens at all levels of society, will he ascend the throne and become Emperor. His loyal friend and heart-throb, Malina, an excellent student, attempts to help Kuzco stay out of trouble and achieve his goals. Series episodes explore relevant messages such as coping with peer pressure, respecting authority, taking responsibility, adhering to foster family and school rules, honesty, acceptance of differences, building self esteem and trust.

Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the childrens 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.

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.

The show profiles athletes from various sports who demonstrate talent as well as commitment and drive. The featured players are positive role models for kids. Although both male and female athletes are shown, the majority are male. Athletes are mostly African American and Caucasian and come from various socioeconomic backgrounds. SPORTS STARS OF TOMORROW is a weekly magazine series that showcases up and coming young athletes whose talent and hard work are making them winners. Each episode includes a variety of news features that highlight the featured athletes success in sports, as well as the hard work thats gotten them that far. Family members and coaches are introduced, too, allowing viewers to get a better idea of the many people involved in each athletes achievement. Although the show focses on the players athletic prowess and the awards and scholarships theyve received because of their talents it also presents these young athletes as regular kids, many of whom spend their time volunteering, tutoring children with learning disabilities, and even being elected prom queen. Sports Stars of Tomorrow is clearly aimed at young people who are interested in sports as well as young hopefuls who dream of becoming elite athletes themselves. But the series also reflects some of the realities of contemporary sports. Many more young men than young women are profiled, and the majority of the feature players are either Caucasian or African American. In an environment in which athletes, inappropriate behavior, and greed are often linked, Sports Stars of Tomorrow reminds us that there are many good, talented kids working hard to achieve their athletic goals and to become solid members of their communities. The featured kids are truly positive role models not just for future generations of athletes, but for all young people.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Those episodes of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody that air on ABC as Core Programming address concerns close to the hearts of older children and tweens and deliver life lessons tailored for that audience. Our stories take place in a luxury hotel in Boston, where twelve year old identical twins, Zack and Cody, live with their divorced mom, a lounge singer for the Tipton Hotel. The boys attend the local public middle school and are in the same class. One of the twins is polite and shy and excels in academics, while the other, an athlete and extrovert, barely scrapes by in school, due to disinterest and lack of effort, and instead often instigates wacky plans for outwitting hotel authorities, caregivers, and their mother. The boys mother dates and would like to remarry. Their father is a professional rock musician who is on the road much of the year, but who stays in touch with his boys. This sets up occasional parental conflicts about discipline and expectations. Parallel stories involve two teenage girls: heiress London Tipton, whose father owns the hotel, and Maddie, the girl who works after school at the hotel snack bar. Unlike London, Maddie attends a parochial girls school and comes from a working class family. Both Zack and Cody have crushes on Maddie, who is four years older than they. Series episodes explore sibling rivalry, conflicts with parents, divorce, household and hotel rules, family income limitations, responsibility, self esteem, and peer pressure.

Pearlie 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

Our stories take place in a luxury hotel in Boston, where twelve year old identical twins, Zack and Cody, live with their divorced mom, a lounge singer for the Tipton Hotel. The boys attend the local public middle school and are in the same class. One of the twins is polite and shy and excels in academics, while the other, an athlete and extrovert, barely scrapes by in school, due to disinterest and lack of effort, and instead often instigates wacky plans for outwitting hotel authorities, caregivers, and their mother. The boys mother dates and would like to remarry. Their father is a professional rock musician who is on the road much of the year, but who stays in touch with his boys. This sets up occasional parental conflicts about discipline and expectations. Parallel stories involve two teenage girls: heiress London Tipton, whose father owns the hotel, and Maddie, the girl who works after school at the hotel snack bar. Unlike London, Maddie attends a parochial girls school and comes from a working class family. Both Zack and Cody have crushes on Maddie, who is four years older than they. Series episodes explore sibling rivalry, conflicts with parents, divorce, household and hotel rules, family income limitations, responsibility, self esteem, and peer pressure.
