Porridge Art

Episode Guide »
Baby Bear is excited to learn that his favorite porridge brand "Quaker Porridge" is holding a Porridge Art Contest, where contestants create edible art of the Quaker Duck Man that's made of porridge. Alan mixes up a batch of porridge, Baby Bear runs off to get is art supplies, and Telly volunteers to pose as the Quaker Duck Man. First, Baby Bear gets inspiration to paint with porridge, but when the picture is placed upright on the easel, the mushy porridge slides right off the canvas. Baby Bear needs some brain food to help him figure out what to do next and returns to eating his porridge which is now thick and pasty. Alan explains that's what happens to porridge when it's left out too long. Baby Bear is inspired again! This time he sticks nuts and berries to the thick porridge to create a mosaic picture. But when everyone is distracted, animals come over and eat Baby Bear's art. Alan reassures him that they can try something else and just then, Baby Bear is inspired once more. He decides to cover Telly with the thick porridge, creating a statue. Alan explains that this is cheating and Baby Bear understands. He tries to take the porridge off of Telly, but it stiffens even more. Alan tells Baby Bear that the longer porridge is left out, the drier and harder it becomes, just like his breakfast did. One last inspiration! Baby Bear makes his own sculpture out of porridge, and he wins the contest! His prize is to have lunch with the Quaker Duck Man, and together, they enjoy eating Baby Bear's porridge sculpture.
