All Dogs Go To Heaven entertains and engages young grade school children while promoting positive pro-social models of life-skills and character developments. All Dogs Go To Heaven uses highly entertaining and engaging stories and characters to present pro-social 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 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 attactive 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.

This series focuses on one particular family of Littles- Grandpa, Mom and Dad, Dinky, and the two youngest: Tom and Lucy. In their quest to become productive adults, the Littles and their friend Henry face the same kinds of problems that young children face every day - issues of friendship, jealousy, honesty, prejudice, consideration for others, kindness, responsibility, risk-taking and more. Each episode of the Littles focuses on one such issue, presenting it in explicit, concrete terms. And young, attractive characters with whom children can identify carry out these actions, they serve as excellent role models for young viewers. Younger and older children, boys and girls, loners and social butterflies, all can find a character with whom to identify and from whom to learn. And last but far from least, the character of Grandpa, a wise, experienced, older Little who clearly loves and cares for the Little kids, functions as the kind of non-threatening, non didactic teacher to whom children respond. He frequently articulates the lesson inherent in the action as he interacts with and advises the Little children. He is the best kind of teacher. The explicitness with which each lesson is articulated and role models with whom children can identify are designed to ensure that children note and understand the embedded pro-social content as they derive delight from the action.

This series focuses on one particular family of Littles- Grandpa, Mom and Dad, Dinky, and the two youngest: Tom and Lucy. In their quest to become productive adults, the Littles and their friend Henry face the same kinds of problems that young children face every day - issues of friendship, jealousy, honesty, prejudice, consideration for others, kindness, responsibility, risk-taking and more. Each episode of the Littles focuses on one such issue, presenting it in explicit, concrete terms. And young, attractive characters with whom children can identify carry out these actions, they serve as excellent role models for young viewers. Younger and older children, boys and girls, loners and social butterflies, all can find a character with whom to identify and from whom to learn. And last but far from least, the character of Grandpa, a wise, experienced, older Little who clearly loves and cares for the Little kids, functions as the kind of non-threatening, non didactic teacher to whom children respond. He frequently articulates the lesson inherent in the action as he interacts with and advises the Little children. He is the best kind of teacher. The explicitness with which each lesson is articulated and role models with whom children can identify are designed to ensure that children note and understand the embedded pro-social content as they derive delight from the action.
