Preschoolers won’t be wowed by the cut-and-paste animation in “Pinkalicious and Peterrific,” but these 11-minute shorts are all about applying imagination, whether it’s forming a marching band consisting solely of make-believe instruments or battling the fears of one’s first sleepover with the help of a gentle dragon. Grown-ups will be, um, tickled pink to learn that the dragon is voiced by Marlo Thomas.

The Winter Olympics are providing plenty of rah-rah moments, but don’t ignore the can-do attitude exhibited in 1993’s “Cool Runnings,” a comic take on the 1988 Jamaican bobsled team’s attempt to medal.
