Abbys Flying Fairy School.cast.jpg

Abby's Flying Fairy School is a CGI-animated Sesame Street segment starring fairy-in-training Abby Cadabby. Abby goes to Fairy School, learning from Mrs. Sparklenose. Her class features all new characters: classmates Blögg and Gonnigan, fairies, trolls, and a part-gerbil part-unicorn called Niblet. The nine-minute segments focus on rhyme, reasoning, problem-solving, and cooperation. It debuted in season 40 and ran through season 45, though season 43 was the last to feature any new editions.

The principal characters in the series were designed by Peter De Sève, whose credits include such animated features as the Ice Age movies and Finding Nemo. The series is designed and animated by SpeakeasyFX. A couple of Spot sequences were animated by Magnetic Dreams Animation Studio.

An early concept for the series was to have the Muppet version of Abby board a bus, which transforms her into a CG character.[1] The segment's theme song was written by Tony Geiss. It was later re-orchestrated for Season 42.

In an interview with Tough Pigs, Rosita said that she wants to visit the school; Abby considers bringing her for show-and-tell. (YouTube) Abby references attending flying fairy school in Episode 4733, after the segment had been retired.

A digital release, Abby's Flying Fairy School: Volume 1, was released on iTunes in 2015.
