Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Wimzie's House is targeted at 3 to 5 year old children and designed to contribute to the developmental and educational needs of children in this age group. Three to five year old children are accomplishing phenomenal growth and change in their physical, cognitive (language, perception, and intellectual), and social-emotional development. Growth and change in the physical domain impacts the range of opportunities they have to experience new environments and opportunities for social interaction. New environments and social interactions impact their socio-emotional development. And, their vastly increased language ability and growing cognitive capacity affects both their ability to regulate and express emotions and their ability to mentally represent their experiences. The integrated nature of their rapid development during this time period makes this a time when the child imagination becomes vivid, complicated and exciting. Three to five year olds use their imagination to assimilate new learnings, develop empathy and a sense of humor and begin to develop a conscience. Their imaginations and their fantasy play help children understand the complexity of the communities they are venturing into as they expand their range beyond home to schools, neighborhoods and social groups.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Country Mouse and the City Mouse Adventures employs the fun and fascinating world-wide jaunts of a pair of adorable mice to present a body of important new learning. As Emily, the practical Country Mouse, and her sophisticated City Mouse cousin, Alexander, visit friends and family around the globe, they encounter non-stop delight along with non-stop problems, complications and mysteries. By stepping in, helping out and dealing with the situations with which they are confronted, they teach youngsters valuable learning to learn skills, centering on discovery, investigation and analysis; associated personal-character and pro-social attitudes; and intriguing core knowledge learning focused on world history, geography and language. Tackling new, perplexing and seemingly difficult situations is likely to be seen as daunting to many young viewers. Most children let myriad questions and conundrums go by thereby missing out on valuable information and investigative practice, and putting a chink in their own feelings of self-efficacy along the way. In the course of The Country Mouse and the City Mouse Adventures, Emily and Alexander follow a different path dealing with problems and dilemmas head on. In doing so, they model the willing to help; the curiosity to ask appropriate questions; the openness to see the possibilities and formulate plausible hypotheses; the skills in observation and fact finding to gather new knowledge; the logical reasoning to assess knowledge gathered; the industriousness and perseverance to press on in the face of difficulty and disappointment; the judgment to draw appropriate conclusions; and the courage to act on them. Each of the mice adventures is furthermore based on a real historical event that took place in far-flung lands across the globe. Emily and Alexander investigate an art crime in Paris Louvre Museum, a cable car mishap in San Francisco, the disappearance of a prized tiger in India, and so much more. By means of observation, kids are able to gain a close-up and education-packed view of history, geography, and world-wide cultures, customs, and language.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. KFFX FOX 11 terminated analog programming on February 17, 2009. There was no analog programming during this quarter. KFFX FOX 11 locally produces Public Service Announcements targeting children. Our goal is to make a positive impression on children and their families. These PSA's stimulate thought, create deeper awareness, and give kids valuable practical information that they can apply to their lives. These spots focus on safety, health, education, the environment and emotional well-being. The average number of hours per week of Core Programming broadcast by the station on other than its main program stream was calculated on the basis of the date the broadcast of the programs commenced, not on the basis of the total number of weeks during the quarter.

Total times aired at regularly scheduled time 26
Length of Program 30 mins
Age of Target Child Audience from 3 years to 5 years
Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Wimzie's House is targeted at 3 to 5 year old children and designed to contribute to the developmental and educational needs of children in this age group. Three to five year old children are accomplishing phenomenal growth and change in their physical, cognitive (language, perception, and intellectual), and social-emotional development. Growth and change in the physical domain impacts the range of opportunities they have to experience new environments and opportunities for social interaction. New environments and social interactions impact their socio-emotional development. And, their vastly increased language ability and growing cognitive capacity affects both their ability to regulate and express emotions and their ability to mentally represent their experiences. The integrated nature of their rapid development during this time period makes this a time when the child imagination becomes vivid, complicated and exciting. Three to five year olds use their imagination to assimilate new learnings, develop empathy and a sense of humor and begin to develop a conscience. Their imaginations and their fantasy play help children understand the complexity of the communities they are venturing into as they expand their range beyond home to schools, neighborhoods and social groups.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Country Mouse and the City Mouse Adventures employs the fun and fascinating world-wide jaunts of a pair of adorable mice to present a body of important new learning. As Emily, the practical Country Mouse, and her sophisticated City Mouse cousin, Alexander, visit friends and family around the globe, they encounter non-stop delight along with non-stop problems, complications and mysteries. By stepping in, helping out and dealing with the situations with which they are confronted, they teach youngsters valuable learning to learn skills, centering on discovery, investigation and analysis; associated personal-character and pro-social attitudes; and intriguing core knowledge learning focused on world history, geography and language. Tackling new, perplexing and seemingly difficult situations is likely to be seen as daunting to many young viewers. Most children let myriad questions and conundrums go by thereby missing out on valuable information and investigative practice, and putting a chink in their own feelings of self-efficacy along the way. In the course of The Country Mouse and the City Mouse Adventures, Emily and Alexander follow a different path dealing with problems and dilemmas head on. In doing so, they model the willing to help; the curiosity to ask appropriate questions; the openness to see the possibilities and formulate plausible hypotheses; the skills in observation and fact finding to gather new knowledge; the logical reasoning to assess knowledge gathered; the industriousness and perseverance to press on in the face of difficulty and disappointment; the judgment to draw appropriate conclusions; and the courage to act on them. Each of the mice adventures is furthermore based on a real historical event that took place in far-flung lands across the globe. Emily and Alexander investigate an art crime in Paris Louvre Museum, a cable car mishap in San Francisco, the disappearance of a prized tiger in India, and so much more. By means of observation, kids are able to gain a close-up and education-packed view of history, geography, and world-wide cultures, customs, and language.
