Synopsis: Young Ondra has asthma and so his mom throws away his favorite toy: a musty old stuffed bear named Kooky. That night Ondra dreams that Kooky is determined to find his way back home from the dump. In the boy's fantasy, the bear gets lost in a forest occupied by strange animals and remarkable beings that he never heard of while living on the toy shelf in Ondra's room. And of course even in this small imaginary world, true good exists as does real evil, which Kooky must face up to in order to become a real hero.

let's clean up this mess, okay?

Pick up your things

so I can vacuum.

These have had it.

You've got new ones.

- And what's this? - An airplane.

- It's broken.

You'll never play

with it again, will you?

You're a schoolboy,

but sometimes you act like a baby.

(be a big boy?)

You're going to have

to pull your socks up.

I don't think your friends

still play with teddy bears?

- And this one's falling apart.

- But it's Kooky.

I know dear, but if I stitch him up

he'll just tear somewhere else.

I'm sorry,

but Kooky's got to go.

Don't get it everywhere.

You don't want to start

wheezing again?

Cuddly toys are full of dust

and no good for you.

Bubbles can stay, she's washable.

But not this one.

And get him out of your face.

Good boy.


The same way I'm allergic

to dust and cats,

Kooky is allergic to the dark.

It makes him feel bad.

It doesn't make him wheeze but

he's much better when it's Light again.

Tonight, I don't think

I'll go to my mum's bed.

When our house is on its side

it's too tricky to get there.

No running!

When a kid gets lost, he tells

someone where he lives and they take him home.

But Kooky's only a teddy bear

and he doesn't know where he lives.

- Ondra, get off!

- Homeless people dont know either.


Because they dont have a home.

Now count.

One... two... three...

four... five... six...

Lucky you.

With your washable tag.

But Kooky's days are numbered.

Let's try praying for him.

Put your hands together.

We'll pray for him to Live.

Hands together

or the magic won't work.

You're not asleep yet?

Are you breathing all right?

Let's put Bubbles up here so

you won't breathe in her dust all night.

- Goodnight.

- Mum? - Yes?

- 'Night.

- 'Night.

Getup, Kooky, getup!

Oh God, do something!

Hocus Pocus Who do? You do!

Hey, cut it out!

Stay back! I'm a dangerous dust Bag -

I could put you in hospital.

No one gets out of here, no way.

He's getting away! Stop him!

Nothing leaves the dump.

That's the law.

Stop right there!

He's getting away! Stop him!

Hello, anyone there?

Don't bother trying to scare me

because my eyes are shut tight.

Don't even try it!

That's a pretty silly coat

to run around here in.

I bet everything sticks to it.

Fake fur, isnt?

- What eh... who are you?

- I'm Kooky and I live in the city.

- What do you do?

- Not a lot.

So you're just for show? No job?

Ondra takes me to bed at night

and we play with Bubbles.

We pretend we're animals

hiding from the cold.

I see.

Each to their own,

but you don't belong here.

In the forest we dont

play games; this is real life.

Animals here have to fight

to survive and get cold for real!

- I want to go home.

- Good!

You don't fit in here!

You should go home.

I want to, but i don't

know how. - Oh, dear.

- I've trained them. Want to see?

- Yes please.

Hey, squirrels!

Pine cone to sector Bravo,

Sierra, Tango.

These burn rather well.

Stay here, I'll be back in a moment.

Or maybe you'd better come with me...

so nothing gets... broken.

Just don't tell anyone

what you do at home.

- You mean about the games?

- About what you are.

- What am I?

- You're a... cuddly toy.

So what? - Here we dont

go in for that sort thong.

HI, Captain! Who's that?

He's lost. I'm keeping an

eye on him.


- Who was that? - Some god.

- A God?

Everyone here is the god of

something...a stream, a rock, etc.

Captain, will you let me go now?

I saw the strange light first.

Do you promise you'll stop strangling

everyone? - I promise!

Okay, cut him down,
