    • Kind of creepy but still curiously interesting

      7.5
      An old man (Mr. Bumble-Drop) whose only companion is a dog builds a playground in his yard for the neighborhood children so he won't be lonely. One day he surprises them all with kites but a few of the children are quite nasty and tie their toys to the kite's tail. A large gust of wind yanks the kites from their hands and their toys, along with the olds man's dog who grabbed one of kite strings sail off into the heavens. The kids blame him for giving them the kites rather than blaming themselves and boycott the playground.

      Now, lonely as ever, he decides to build himself a boy companion (Torchy) to keep him company. Through the light on his head Torchy is able to locate the dog and the toys on a distant star and asks Mr. Bumble-Drop to build him a rocket so he can bring them back. However, once he lands he finds that the toys have come to life and due to the way they had been treated by the children refuse to return to Earth. Instead of the Golden Rule - Do unto others as you would like done unto you, it is Do to others as they have done to you. Revenge is the prevailing factor in this show.moreless
