Not only are the Cloudbabies in this sweet pre-school series almost unbearably cute, but their daily adventures are recognisable to smaller viewers who are just discovering the world and all its unfortunate rules.
Here, Little Star tries to copy the shooting stars by zooming across the sky, but
it’s not as easy as the other stars make it look...
About this programme
Baba Blue and Rainbow are slinging stars into the sky, watched by Bobo White, Fuffa Cloud and Little Star. Bobo and Fuffa think the shooting stars are the best thing in the sky. A little downhearted that his friends did not choose him as the best thing in the sky, Little Star resolves to be a shooting star.
But it is time for bed. Baba Pink puts him in his cot, but as soon as her back is turned, he is up again. He practises throwing himself off a cloud but it does not work. Baba Pink finds him and puts him back to bed again. Once she has gone, he is up again. This time, he collects all the shooting stars off the star tree, but on hearing that Baba Pink's going to check up on him, he abandons the basket of stars in the stables and rushes back to bed.
Meanwhile, the Cloudbabies find that the star tree is bare. How will they light up the night sky without shooting stars? Little Star, who is now officially up, realises the gravity of his actions and retrieves the basket of shooting stars from the stables and confesses. The Cloudbabies take pity on him. After all, he only wanted to be a shooting star. Baba Blue lets him into the slingshot and slings him up into the night sky. Little Star is a shooting star after all.
