Show Synopsis

Frank Bearfoot and his team are unwell, but need to feel better in order to put on their show. So they pop into the Teddy Bear Hospital where with the help of Dr Ranj, they explore their ailments in a fun and entertaining way, and inadvertently end up putting on a show for the audience anyway. So to celebrate, they all go off for a teddy bear's picnic!

Packed full of humour, music, dancing, games and audience participation, the show highlights everything from the importance of health eating and exercise, to managing colds and getting a good night's sleep. The goal is for the audience to leave entertained and educated!
