Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The narrator has one of those soothing, friendly voices, and he provides a very enjoyable background for the images. Animals include domestic and wild, with great variety in both. Lots of geography is presented. Very few humans are shown. The animal facts go beyond the rote: with animal:animal comparisons and exploration of human misperceptions, it's educational but not boring. Content also includes quiz questions, big words, and uncloying silliness.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the Poppy Cat's Adventures book series authored and illustrated by Lara Jones. A narrator, also named Lara, reads a story to her cat in each episode. This story stars her Poppy Cat, who envisions and takes his friends on imaginary adventures. The friends are Zuzu, a Dalmation who zips around on a skateboard; Alma, a southern belle bunny who is ultra feminine and sweetly dramatic, Mo, a little mouse who tries his best to do as much as everyone else despite his size; Owl, the wise one who is prone to neck rolls and commentary when things irritate him or don't make sense. The grouchy Egbert, a badger who is both a snob and a bully refuses to play with the group and invariably attempts to sabotage their adventures. Occasionally Hilda, a forgetful and ditzy pigeon who flies into their adventures, appears to say hello or provide misguided directions to the friends. Once their mission is accomplished, the friends return to their little village and resume their cheerful, active lives. With the end of her story Lara closes her book and says good bye to Poppy Cat, who is usually ready for his nap.
