Wilbear's Adventure


Follow Wilbear, the Teddy Bear, as he wants to fly and discover flight. His grandpa uses demonstrations about the nature of flight to build up to the story of the Wright Brothers' historic first airplane experience. Grandpa Bear captivates audiences with tales of inventions over time, from kites and gliders to today's jet planes.The show follows Sesame Street’s Big Bird and Elmo as they explore the night sky with a Chinese puppet named Hu Zhu. Together they take an imaginary trip from Sesame Street to the moon, where they discover how different it is from the Earth. The program is a brilliant spectacle of light and color that aims to nurture a child’s natural sense of wonder about the night sky while foraging cross-cultural connections.
