"Willa's Wild Life," based on the book An Octopus Followed Me Home, by Dan Yaccarino, is an animated series centered on a six-year-old girl and her menagerie of animals. Willa lives at home with her father and pets - an elephant, a giraffe, a pair of performing seals, a bear, penguins, and lots of rabbits. In each episode, Willa faces a challenge at home, in school or in her neighborhood. With her animals and best friend Dooley as key elements of her team, Willa works on solutions to overcome her challenge. Together they find ways to maintain healthy friendships, experience success, develop competence, and become altruistic. With help from her animal friends, Willa figures out how to earn the things she wants by helping others. She learns to appreciate the friends that she has rather than trying to change to fit in with the "cool" group. She realizes that asking questions is better than jumping to conclusions. Whether at school, home or in the neighborhood, Willa finds a way to analyze her situation and learn from experience.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "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 6-10 year-old range, episodes focus 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, Pearlie approaches 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. Set in medieval times, "Jane and the Dragon" is an animated show based on Martin Baynton's best-selling book about a middle-class medieval girl named Jane. Jane is raised in the Royal Court as a Knight-in-Training after she demonstrates her courage by leaving the castle to conquer the local dragon. The giant green Dragon, whose sense of humor exceeds his ferocity, instead becomes Jane's best friend and a part of the castle community. In each episode, Jane encounters a challenge that tests her problem-solving skills and requires her to demonstrate her strength of character as a Knight of the King's Guard. Sometimes Jane learns a moral lesson, and other times she uses her analytical ability to illustrate how a problem can be made less complicated and easily solved.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Based on the book series by Deborah Manchester, "The Zula Patrol" teaches science and astronomy facts to a target audience of children 6-10 years of age. The Zula Patrol is a group of six animated aliens, headed by Captain Bula, who carry out a variety of scientific space missions. During their missions, Captain Bula and his crew often encounter their foe, Dark Truder, and his minion, Traxie, who are trying to take over the universe. Over the course of the story, the audience learns different facts about specific space topics such as stars, planets, orbits, moons, asteroids, comets, gravity, and space probes. The information is then highlighted during a segment where crew member Professor Multo delivers his "Multo-Moments" or summary of scientific facts from the story. Typically, the stories also provide a social-emotional tag based on tolerance and non-violent conflict resolution.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

She gets along with everyone so, ultimately, every problem is solved and Pearlie learns a lesson. However, her greatest challenges are usually presented by her one enemy, the bully and diva, Saphira. Fortunately, Pearlie rises to Saphira's challenges, not with meanness, but by outwitting her. Overall, learning is a constant process for Pearlie because she has big responsibilities, taking care of an entire little community, but she is indomitable and tenacious and ends up preserving order and happiness in Jubilee Park.

The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat is based on the book series by Lara Jones and uses embedded lessons on imagination and storytelling to encourage creating thinking for preschool children. In each story the narrator, Lara reads a story about Poppy Cat, to her own cat named Poppy. She makes up a story that will be exciting and just follows her imagination to distant lands reached by boat, plane or train. Poppy Cat is the leader of his group of animal friends, and the story always features an underlying message about being nice to yet ignoring the antics of the resident bully, a badger named Egbert. The lesson is always to think creatively and exercise your mind through reading and storytelling because it will always lead to enjoyment and adventure.
