Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. By means of fantasy and fun, Jakers The Adventures of Piggley Winks provides young viewers with an enticing model for learning, growing and being. A little kids world is apt to be replete with challenges and conundrums, as well as enjoyment and satisfaction. How does one deal with the fear engendered by performing in front of ones peers at the school concert, the temptation of playing with a new toy when it is time for homework, the difficulty of finding something to do on a rainy day, or of making a best friend. On an episode by episode basis, Piggley Winks along with his best friends Ferny and Dannan face these challenges and more often overcoming them by means of their own brand of ingenuity and perseverance mixed with an ample dose of joy and humor. As they do so the animal friends point up the fact that it is okay to be fallible in the course of learning. Piggley Ferny and Dannan just like real little kids commonly make mistakes and errors of judgment which at the time may seem monumental but in reality serve as motivators of growth change and true accomplishment.
