DVD - 2004
In "The Wizard", a visit to the Wizard to buy a magic spell seems the best solution for the little mouse who is "tired of being a mouse." In "Moon Man", the man in the moon, bored with life on his drifting sphere in space catches a shooting star and rockets down to earth so he can join the fun. In "The Hat", the wind blows a magic black top hat onto the head of Benito Badoglio a penniless veteran. The hat at Badoglio's command saves many people from danger before it blows away again. In "The Rainbabies", a childless couple find a dozen tiny babies in the grass. Protected by the devotion and unwavering love of the old couple, the magical babies are finally claimed by their rightful mothe...r, who rewards the couple at last with their heart's desire.
