In episode 20 from the Wapos Bay series, an innocent Mother’s Day art assignment reminds T-Bear of his personal loss. With the help of Devon and Talon, he decides it’s time for his father, Jacob, to find a new wife. Their plan involves attracting anyone looking for love... without telling Jacob. Meanwhile, Raven becomes obsessed with makeup and looking mature—and learns that maturity comes from inside, not from how colourful your face is.

Wapos Bay is a stop-motion animation series that follows the adventures of 3 kids from a Cree community in northern Saskatchewan.
