Der Mondmann


That was incredible!

Yes. It was incredible.

Daddy, we have to watch

it again sometime! Can we?

Yeah, why not tomorrow?

Look at the moon, Daddy!

It's the Moon Man!


There are lots of moons!

And on each one there's

a different Moon Man.

No way! There is only one moon.

And it's always the same one.

No! There are lots

of different ones.

And nobody lives

on the moon. Nobody!

They do! Look!

Did you see him, Laika?

He's waking up!

Who's waking up?

The Moon Man.

Enough of this childishness!

It's high time you went to sleep!

But I haven't even

had any dinner!

Stop it. That's enough!

It's time to sleep.

Move over.

Night after night,

the Moon Man

spent his time curled

up in his silver seat.

Being all alone,

his life on the moon had

become dreadfully boring.

If only once, just once,

he had something to do.

Dear subjects!

As you can see for yourselves,

you see that the entire

world has been conquered,

except for a tiny little speck of land.

But that,

my dear subjects, was yesterday,

because this morning

I finally conquered the last

remaining part of the earth.

And now the entire world

is completely conquered!


Bravo! All praise the President!

Long live the President!

Wonderful! Fantastic!

Phenomenal! Marvellous!

Of course, it's only right and proper.

Many thanks.

Congratulations, Mr President.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

You know,

it's not worth mentioning.

The entire world is at your feet:

what is left for you to conquer?

Something new always emerges

beyond every horizon.

I felt a great inner urge to say it.

And if you've understood,

then so much the better.

No, no, it's really not worth mentioning.

Mr. President,

just look at the moon!

It's so old, yet so new.

For he who has conquered the

whole world, all that remains is...

The moon.

No man has ever

conquered the moon.

A shooting star! Make a wish.

That's one small step for a man,

one giant leap for mankind.

Red alert! Red Alert! Attack!

Out of my way!

Get back! Off with you!

That's impossible! It cannot be!

We have conquered everything.

We have no more enemies!

See for yourself, Mr President.

We are being attached by an alien planet!

Run! Everyone take cover!

Me first!

Out of my way.

Off with you. Stand back!

It's just an empty crater.

Most regrettable!

As if that were of

no significance!

It's an empty crater, after all!

Whatever that extra-terrestrial

fireball was, there is nothing.

Nothing! Ha-ha-ha! Nothing! Ha.

And what, may I ask, is this?

Is this what you call 'nothing'?

Well, whoever or whatever it was,

they've gone.

Of course they've gone!

Anyone plotting mischief would not

wait around here for us to turn up.

Hurry, after them! Follow the trail.

Capture those cowardly intruders!

Mr President,

there is nothing to be found here.

The trail vanishes without trace.

Are you suggesting that the

invaders have vanished into air?

Scour the whole earth

until you find them!

At your command, Mr President!

Scour the whole earth!

One scoop? Two scoops?

Three scoops? In a cone? In a tub?

A scoop?

No. A ball. A fireball!

If the intruders came to

earth on a fireball, then...

...then I can go to the moon

on a fireball. Yes that's it!

That's how I can

conquer the moon!


Have a good flight!

Come and dance with us!

You've got a really

cool costume.

Excuse the interruption.

There are invaders. Intruders. Attackers.


An invasion.

Please do not panic.

Everybody remain calm.

Hey, you there! The party's over.

You can go home now. But watch out.
