The Happy Cricket
A music-loving cricket whose daily serenades delight the peace-loving forest dwellers finds his world suddenly turned upside down by the arrival of a tyrannical lizard who kidnaps the insect's muse and outlaws all music in an animated tale produced to promote the power of peace to all the children of the world. Christopher is a carefree cricket who draws inspiration from Linda the Night Star to pen uplifting songs that bring joy and good cheer to all the creatures of the forest. Their idyllic existence is soon threatened, however, when dictatorial reptile Wartlord arrives with his thuggish henchmen and orders the destruction of the woodlands in order to clear the way for a terrible monument that will serve as a tribute to his own power and authority. When, in a desperate attempt to reach her musical-minded friend, Linda falls from the sky and lands too close to Wartlord's foreboding castle, Christopher enlists the aid of a collection of critters (including the Magical Toucan, kindly butterfly Honeydew, and natural-born leader Isabelle the Ladybug) in rescuing the frightened Linda before her luminance fades and putting a proper end to the rule of the nefarious lizard fascist whose hunger for power threatens their very existence.
