The Bumblesnouts Save the WorldEnvironment
Musical styles include rock, ballad, music hall & rap.
In this thought-provoking WWF environmental musical, the Bumblesnouts visit Earth in a funny old spaceship. But these gentle aliens are horrified when they are attacked by bullies and sprayed with cleaner, making them cough and splutter! While trigger-happy hunters are chased by Jock the Croc , Tree ‘Fellas’ add to the chaotic distruction, chopping down trees to make a road for gangsters in their fumey car. In other words, everyone is behaving very badly.
So the Bumblesnouts set about trying to show humans how to take better care of their planet and their own health and well-being. Earth is an amazing place and every living thing on it has a right to survive!
