There’s no telling what someone can accomplish when surrounded by friends. In these short films, we can see how one’s friends know exactly how to make them feel better.

The characters and critters in this collection of animated shorts recognize that neighbors and friends come in all shapes and backgrounds. In one short from Sesame Workshop; Guitar, Drum, and Pineapple are very different from one another, yet they are the best of friends! One day, Pineapple is a little sad and missing some friends. Together the friends make a letter-writing activity, which turns her feelings from sad to glad. In another short, a young wolf learns who his real friends are on the school bus one day. In the last short, when Tanisha spills her juice all over herself, a classmate wonders what she should do. From asking the new girl to play, to standing up for someone being bullied, we see that with one gesture or word we can make a change!
