The exploration-themed show encourages children to follow their curiosity, ask questions when they don't understand, and find answers using science inquiry skills. The main character Elinor, the most observant and curious bunny rabbit in Animal Town just north of Natural Forest, CA, introduces children ages 3-6 to science, nature and community through adventures with her friends Olive and Ari. Each episode includes two 11-minute animated stories plus interstitial content where Elinor and her classmates enjoy either Señor Tapir singing about famous nature explorers or Ms. Mole reading stories.
