The Bumblesnouts are gentle aliens who visit Earth in a funny old spaceship. But they 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 - 'Shootin', huntin, fishin' is our idea of fun!' they chant. Tree ‘Fellas’ add to the distruction by chopping down trees to make a road for gangsters to drive their fumey car along. 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!
This lively WWF musical encourages children to respect their environment and each other.
