A bored Man in the Moon hitches a ride to Earth on the tails of a passing comet and starts to explore the fantastical creatures and sights of a new planet. But all is not well - the Moon Man's absence from his post means that all the world's children are unable to sleep. Before the President can capture him, they must join forces to return him to his rightful place in the sky.
Things that Go ‘Bump’ in the Night
With Halloween creeping just around the corner, we have a programme of films set in the domain of the ghost, the ghoul and the vampire bat: that is to say, the night-time.
Six fairy tales weave together like flames in the camp fire, the moon trips out of the sky, and a boy holds the fate of the stars in his hands, in this season of films dedicated to the witching hour.
