Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming
The wonderful Berenstain Bears of classic children's book fame comes to the television screen to educate and entertain 3-6 year olds & uses the prosocial messages about family, friends, and the problems and issues of early childhood. Focusing on family and friendship, Mama, Papa, Sister, and Brother Bear encounter a host of problems and issues important to most young children and their parents. Ranging from why politeness matters, through not letting one's imagination control them, to why it's important to tell the truth, the Bear Cubs ask the same kinds of questions and learn the same kinds of lessons that children everywhere must grapple with. The Berenstain Bears is a series that celebrates family, friendship, and respect for others and addresses many of the questions that young children have always raised, at the same time that it engages and delights young viewers.

All Dogs Go To Heaven entertains and engages young grade school children while promoting positive pro-social models of life-skills and character development. All Dogs Go To Heaven uses highly entertaining and engaging stories and characters to present prosocial messages aimed at promoting young children's social and emotional development. The vehicle is the ongoing saga of Charlie Barkin and Itchy Itchford, two dogs who return to earth from heaven in the role of reluctant guardian angels. Charlie, a street-smart wise cracking, dog of all scams was not ready to go to heaven-he was having too much fun on earth. Anabelle, the arc-angel in charge of dogs, gives him a choice: he can return to earth, but only as a Guardian Angel, charged with doing and being good. No more scams: no more wise guy antics. Given that the options range from zero to none, Charlie accepts the challenge, and the always loyal Itchy joins him. Not surprisingly, Charlie is constantly torn between his role as a guardian angel and his yearnings for his pre-angelic, down and dirty, dog about town life. He constantly confronts situations and dilemmas that highlight the kinds of social and character issues that are fundamental to developing children. These include such issues as: honesty versus lying, selfishness versus selflessness, bragging, taking the perspective of others, cheating, winning at all costs, respecting other's individuality and being honest about your feelings. Fortunately, Itchy is frequently there to help Charlie and young viewers, understand just what the right thing is. As attractive characters engaging in exciting, humorous adventures, Charlie and Itchy serve as excellent models to help young viewers learn what all Dogs and all people should ultimately learn... if they want to go to heaven, that is.

KPTV Fox 12 Oregon produces and airs on-going PSA's that help to enhance the educational and informational needs of children. During this quarter the station aired approximately 360 children's public service announcements. FOX 12 encouraged young and old to help those less fortunate this holiday season by supporting our annual toy drive. We collected thousands of new, unwrapped toys. The campaign included programming support as well as public service announcements. This was a great project for families as we received several donations from kids who learned the importance of community service. FOX 12 partnered with the Volunteers of America in supporting their Adopt-a-Family program. During the holiday season the program seeks to match the generosity of individuals and businesses with low-income families. Like our toy drive this was a wonderful family project.
