On The Moon with Mr Boom live a few lunar pals:
Boomdy Bouncer - his dog
Boomdy just loves bouncing about in the moon's low gravity. He sniffs
around the craters and goes swimming in the sea of tranquillity. Sometimes
he disappears in the sea of invisibility and he can't be seen until
all the water has dried away. Mr Boom's written at least two songs for
Boomdy who sometimes joins in the music.
- his robot
Bleep-Moon-Bleep keeps Mr Boom well-advised on things technical and
scientific. Bleep would really like to be a moon person just like Mr
Boom. Mr Boom has written a robot dance song especially for him.
- the Japanese rabbit
Mr Boom discovered once on a trip to planet earth that Japanese children
see a rabbit on the moon. They sang him the Oosagi song and when he
was practising it back home on the moon, Oosagi popped out of a lunar
crater to say hello and sing along. Oosagi's very shy and she doesn't
really like Boomdy all that much because he likes to chase her around
the lunar craters.
Mr Boom based his third album - "Playalong with Mr Boom" around
the idea that different cultures have different imaginings as to who
lives on the moon. Oosagi sings Sakura - a traditional Japanese song
about cherry blossom on Mr Boom's fourth Over the Moon album.
are many visitors to the moon including the Storyteller and the Heidrons
- a family of five robot pals of Bleep-moon-Bleep's, and the Eeki Sound
Creatures who come in search of consonants in lunar craters. Not all
these characters have been seen on television but they've all been seen
at Mr Boom's bigger stage productions such as his Christmas season at
Glasgow's Royal Concert hall in 1993.
