Those Magnificent Bears in Their Flying Machines

Hum along with us, friends:

‘ Those magnificent bears in their flying machines,
They go up, tiddly up, up ..”

The Aviator bears and birds of Mawson's house climb steeply into the sky
Pulling back the throttle, Flyer Bear climbs steeply with the fellow aviators

‘They come down, tiddly, down ..
Ouch! .. down, down’.

The bears and birds come down down down
Daredevil aviators do risk crashes


They enchant all the watchers,
And steal all the scenes,
Those birds and those bears,
With their wings and machines.’

Flyer Bear on his magnificent machine soars behind the Daredevil Corella Twins
Banking in a tight turn, Flyer Bear follows the Daredevil Corella Twins

” Oh those bears and those birds,
Who soar in the air ..”

The birds and a Beeper bank down across the endless blue sky
The birds and one Beebear hurtle across the endless blue sky


.. ‘They don’t think of danger,
They don’t really care.’

'They feel at home, 
High up in the sky.
 How wonderful to be, 
Birds and bears who can fly.'
Tight formation flying. Will our heroes collide? No! Such magnificent flying

‘They feel at home,
High up in the sky.
How wonderful to be,
Birds and bears who can fly.’

And here are our brave aviators: Flyer Bear and his magnificent machine, Miss Crested with her stunt plane, BeeBear and the daredevil Corella Twins. In our next soaring adventure BeeBear and Flyer Bear will bring you their own version of ‘Snoopy’s Christmas’. Look out for that one!

Acknowledgment: the original song, Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines, was written by Lorranine Williams and Ron Goodwin and was the theme of the 1960s movie of the same name.
