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 program also includes some mythology and a few winged constellations. Wilbear’s Adventure was written to coincide with the Wright Brothers and the 100th anniversary of flight.
