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. Episodes of the preschool series are eight to nine minutes long and debuted during Season 40.

The series focuses on rhyme, reasoning, problem-solving, and cooperation.

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.

Rosita said in an interview that she wants to visit the school; Abby is considering bringing her for show-and-tell. (YouTube)
