Lilo, a precocious girl of about five, and her alien pet “Stitch” live with Lilo’s sister Nani. Nani is trying to keep their little family together after the tragic death of their parents in an automobile accident. Although still a teen herself, Nani works several jobs and struggles to be an adult role model for Lilo. Two alien characters, Jumba and Pleakley, who arrived on planet Earth at the same time as Stitch, live with Nani and Lilo while pretending to be their aunt and uncle. This ploy is intended to convince the Department of Social Services that the household is well managed and there is no need for foster-care placement for Lilo. Series episodes illustrate developmentally appropriate issues, among which are peer pressure, coping with bereavement, family and school rules and problem solving. Stories convey messages about truthfulness, responsibility, acceptance and trust. The series includes Hawaiian language, music, dance and custom, exposing our broad ABC audience to the richness of Pacific Rim culture. The June 10, 2006 episode was preempted due to ABC Sports coverage of World Cup Soccer.

Kuzco, a youth who is heir to the throne of a mythical Andean country, must graduate from Kuzco Academy before he can become the official Emperor of his land. He faces the intellectual, physical and social challenges that all teens face, all the while conscious that his life’s work will be to rule fairly and nobly. Kuzco wonders whether being Emperor for the rest of his days will be a pleasure or a trap. In many episodes Kuzco must thwart attempts by the nefarious Yzma and her dimwitted henchman, Kronk, to stop him from doing well in school. If Kuzco fails at his academic requirements Yzma stands a chance to become Empress. Kuzco, who is by nature inclined to take the easy way out of tough situations, struggles to complete his assignments and stay on track. Only if he remains steadfast, studies hard, learns from his mistakes, graduates, and can relate to his citizens at all levels of society, will he ascend the throne and become Emperor. His loyal friend and heart-throb, Malina, an excellent student, attempts to help Kuzco stay out of trouble and achieve his goals. Series episodes explore relevant messages such as coping with peer pressure, respecting authority, taking responsibility, adhering to foster family and school rules, honesty, acceptance of differences, building self-esteem and trust. The June 10, 2006 episode was preempted due to ABC Sports coverage of World Cup Soccer.

“The Proud Family” revolves around the daily activities of fourteen-year-old Penny Proud and her African-American family consisting of parents Trudy Proud (a veterinarian) and Oscar Proud (self-employed businessman), a no-nonsense Grandmother Suga Mama who resides with the family, twin sisters BeBe and CeCe; Penny’s friends Dijonay and Sticky, and the neighboring Boulevardez family, whose daughter, La Cienega, is Penny’s rival. Teachers and classmates also populate the stories. The majority of the characters in this children’s series are ethnic minorities. Penny faces the struggles of adolescence along with the challenge of balancing academic life (middle school) and home obligations. Series episodes explore issues particularly relevant to 10 to 13 year olds: maintaining social relationships, overcoming self-doubt, standing up for one’s beliefs, dealing with peer pressure, relating to authority and rules, assuming responsibility, appreciating differences (gender, race, and generational), maintaining loyalty to family, and cultivating values such as honesty and persistence. The June 10, 2006 episode was preempted due to ABC Sports coverage of World Cup Soccer.

Raven, a young teen who has inherited her grandmother’s trait of clairvoyance, is a normal, happy and resourceful young woman. However, at times Raven worries that she is a “freak” because of her clairvoyant abilities. She has a younger brother, Cory, age ten. They are typical siblings, with the tension and rivalry that most siblings experience. Raven attends public high school. Both parents are employed outside the home. They are loving parents, and good disciplinarians. Raven is often responsible for the after-school safety and activities of her brother, Cory. Her closest friends are Chelsea and Eddie, who are fiercely committed to environmental issues and sports, respectively. Raven’s parents and closest friends know about her “visions” of the immediate future. The premonitions often prompt her to attempt to intervene before trouble occurs. Sometimes Raven’s interventions backfire, and at other times the foreseen events come true, bringing embarrassment or sadness. Raven learns valuable lessons from her blunders and transgressions. Thus, the “visions” set up issues that the Core episodes of this series explore. The series uses humor to convey strong, relevant messages about growing up. Some of the issues that are the focus of episodes are sibling rivalry, popularity, loyalty, self-acceptance, dealing with authority (school and parental), honesty, coping with jealousy, and consequences of lying or cheating. The June 10 and June 24, 2006 episodes were preempted due to ABC Sports coverage of World Cup Soccer.

Those episodes of “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” that air on ABC as Core Programming address concerns close to the hearts of older children and tweens and deliver life lessons tailored for that audience. Our stories take place in a luxury hotel in Boston, where twelve-year-old identical twins Zack and Cody live with their divorced mom, a lounge singer for the Tipton Hotel. The boys attend the local public middle school and are in the same class. One of the twins is polite and shy and excels in academics, while the other, an athlete and extrovert, barely scrapes by in school, due to disinterest and lack of effort, and instead often instigates wacky plans for outwitting hotel authorities, caregivers, and their mother. The boy's mother dates and would like to remarry. Their father is a professional rock musician who is on the road much of the year, but who stays in touch with his boys. This sets up occasional parental “conflicts” about discipline and expectations. Parallel stories involve two teenage girls: heiress London Tipton, whose father owns the hotel, and Maddie, the girl who works after school at the hotel snack bar. Unlike London, Maddie attends a parochial girls’ school and comes from a working class family. Both Zack and Cody have crushes on Maddie, who is four years older than they. Series episodes explore sibling rivalry, conflicts with parents, divorce, household and hotel rules, family income limitations, responsibility, self-esteem, and peer pressure. The June 10 and June 24, 2006 episodes were preempted due to ABC Sports coverage of World Cup Soccer.

Petkeeping is an engaging program for teens and their families. The knowledgeable content of host Marc Marrone and his wonderful menagerie of animal friends will also capture the attention of younger viewers. Information is practical, lively and presented at just the right pace. It is an especially nice touch to see that this unscripted program, part neighborly chat and part animal kingdom insight, offers unique advice and helpful tips on anything from housebreaking a puppy to supplementing a lizard's diet. There is a great amount to learn from animals, particularly the pets that so closely share our lives. This is an intelligent and entertaining program that is fun; the fact that is also gives us answers and makes us think is very good.
