What eebee Does

Eebee is very much like a baby, he said. The full-body puppet doesn’t talk; it simply discovers. Eebee and an adult play with boxes, fill and dump cups, and crinkle paper. They play tug-of-war with socks and rip up junk mail.

Each segment is designed to engage the parent and baby with rich play experiences. Gass hopes that viewers will not only watch, but also will participate. The segments create a brief moment that a parent and child can share and extend into their real lives, Gass said.

“Eebee’s adventures,” previously available only on DVD and via on-demand services, has received 20 national parenting awards, including Parenting Magazine’s DVD of the Year Award.

Larry Sichter, chief of affiliate relations for AFN Broadcast Center, is equally enthusiastic about the partnership, which comes in response to a recent increase in births on military bases.

“We looked at ‘eebee’s adventures’ and feel it’s a very appropriate program for our target audience,” Sichter said. “It’s a perfect fit for us.”

The five-minute segments will appear between “Sesame Street” and “Bear in the Big Blue House” on AFN/family, weekdays at 7 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
