Exploring is a Saturday morning children's educational series in color that appeared on NBC television on Saturday afternoons from 1962 to 1966. The NBC News series, which was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1964 and won a Peabody Award in 1963, featured not only segments that covered science, but also covered other subjects, including the arts. The series was hosted by Dr. Albert Hibbs, a scientist and educator, with Mary Ritts and Paul Ritts as the series' puppeteers.

Besides the Ritts puppets, the series also featured cinematic short subjects, animated versions of famous legends, and music. Although it would run for several years, it received poor ratings, and was cancelled in 1966.
