Her tasks are to help them maneuver through the experiences of the high school years, with its social, emotional, educational, recreational, and teenage angst, and to guide them as they stand up for justice against the forces of evil. Each episode draws on a set of planned educational and informational themes related to specific pro-social concepts, life-lessons, and/or selected groups of facts drawn from a variety of fields of study.
