Der Mondmann


There are intruders on earth.

From another planet.

Hey! Hello! Wake up!

Time to go home!

Go... home...

Is there anything to report?

Searched the Southern and the

Northern hemispheres. No intruders.

Then search the Eastern

and Western hemispheres!

At your command, Mr President!

Good idea Mr President!

Yes, the one with the

best ideas is still... me!

Talking of ideas:

Who can build me a fireball?

A fireball?

Yes, I need a man-made fireball

with which I can conquer the moon.

A man-made fireball?


Who could build such a thing?

Yes, who could

build such a thing?

The only one who could create something

like that would be Bunsen van der Dunkel.

Bunsen van der Dunkel?

Never heard of him.

If he's even still alive, that is...

Bunsen van der Dunkel! Of course!

The inventor of everything!

It's a good thing

I thought of him!

Very good, Mr President!

Good idea, Mr President!

Doctor Bunsen van der Dunkel

was a genius.

After researching,

inventing and

discovering everything...

literally everything on earth,

he had begun to grow bored.

And living all alone,

he grew so bored,

that one day he fell asleep.

For hundreds of years,

he sank into obscurity.

But since he never died,

he still sleeps soundly

to this very day.

Shh! Quiet!

Mmm, yummy!


Are you crazy?


Not all at once!

It'll give you a tummy ache.

He's gone!

What? Who's gone?

The Moon Man!

Now you are dreaming with your

eyes open. Lie down and get to sleep.

Oh, Daddy!

Come on. Enough silliness.

It's really time you went to sleep.

You never believe what I say!

Got to sleep my baby

Close your pretty eyes

Angels up above you

Watching every moment from the sky.

The Moon Man has gone.

The Moon Man has gone.

Have you seen the Moon Man?

Where have you gone,
