Sad to see this was only a pilot, I want to see more. Love the silly bear and loved how beautiful this looked. Love the positive role model for girls and want to see more.

My daughter loved this show. She couldnt stop laughing when the horse fell from her head. and danced when they danced and sang.

my daughters other favorites are like "Bubble Guppies" and "Oomi Zoomie" and we have watched this episode 2x today already.
I hope you make this show, because we are waiting for more Prime Episodes!

It's beautifully animated. But it sorely lacks in the story department. The show plays more like a -- surprise! -- game show (which is what Blues Clues and Super Why! both essentially are).

Plus, there's a big fundamental problem with the concept:

Because the protagonist (Bianca) can grant any wish she likes, there's no real conflict anywhere in the show or in any possible story. If something goes terribly wrong anywhere in an episode, we're aware that Bianca can ultimately wish the problems away.

For instance, when the little boy says he wishes he wasn't afraid and Bianca turns to camera and says, "He wishes he wasn't afraid. What should we do?" Well, the obvious answer is for Bianca to grant his wish to not be afraid. Instead, she inexplicably refrains from doing so. Why? Because if she did grant his wish to not be afraid, then that would be the end of the story.

The way to play this beat in a more interesting and dramatic fashion is to have Bianca attempt to grant the boy's wish, only to have the wish backfire so that now he's even more afraid to go onstage -- in fact, because of Bianca's wishing error, he's now petrified. As a result, Bianca has to decide if she should risk wishing yet again for the boy not to be afraid. What if the wishing goes doubly wrong? That's when she decides to help the boy by taking direct action, in a real-world way that kids at home can relate to, instead of by attempting another wish.

To make the show truly dramatic, her wishing should have as many negative consequences as positive, so that you then have recurring conflict in the plot and an actual story to tell and a theme to explore -- instead of these little disconnected and relatively conflict-free vignettes.

I'm putting this in for my daughter, who seems to really enjoy this. She giggles at the bear's comments each and every time. I'd love to see more of these made.

My son is a little bit picky.. He will only listen to Nahko and Medicine for the People, and he likes Pocoyo (which I don't, so I'm grateful to find this one, it means there's more out there!) He sat through the whole thing and is bouncing right now hopeful for it to play again. I'm going to go see what else you have but I think this is cute!

I was glad that she didn't wish his fear away, and I can't wait for the lessons that you can't make everything better by wishes, but for a pilot this is FANTASTIC :)
