Based on the bedtime book by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, We follow the intrepid adventures of Stan, Katie, Rosie, Max, the baby and Rufus the dog, who decide to ‘catch a big one’ and set off in search of bears. 

The siblings venture through snow, mud and a big dark forest on their ambitious quest. But when Rosie and Rufus detach from the rest of the party it looks like bear hunting might not be such fun after all. The children race back to the safety of their warm home. 

Author Michael Rosen channels his inner grizzly as the bear. Made with exquisite hand-drawn animation by Lupus Films, the team behind The Snowman and The Snowdog.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt – Saturday at 10.15am on Channel 4
