The Bumblesnouts Save the WorldEnvironment
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 Mrs Fizzy's aerosol cleaner, making them cough and splutter! Trigger-happy hunters enter in pursuit of Jock the Croc - they chant. Tree ‘Fellas’ add to the distruction by 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!
