A tale about two little mice Pip and Chip who wondered if anybody bites the big Moon Cheese shining in the sky? The bats didn’t know the answer, neither did the Wise Owl.

Luckily, Pip and Chip met two astronomy-savvy robots who explained what the Moon is indeed. They told about the Moon Mares without any water or Moon fish, showed the Moon craters trough the telescope. Pip and Chip were so impressed they wished they could fly to the Moon one day!

This fairy-tale is for curious kids. It helps to answer some questions about the Moon and explains important scientific facts in a friendly way.

Best full-dome movie for kids

The Margaret C. Woodson Planetarium in Salisbury, NC ran this show for 1 year paired with our 1st grade program about nocturnal animals and the moon. Most 1st grade groups loved the show! The narration is a translation from its original and the voices of the mice are hard for young learners to hear, sometimes. I would have loved if the running time of this show was longer than about 15 minutes and that some of that running time wasn't focused on crater names. Overall, this show was well received and the guys at FDB in Belarus were good to deal with in working with a school system to pay, which was hard.
