Puss In Moon Boots &
The Legend of Moby Dick Whittington
This year, Sleeping Trees bring you not one, but TWO Christmas Living Room Adventure films suitable for all the family.
Puss, (Santa’s cat and a wannabe inventor), has always dreamed of being able to build and pilot a rocket which would allow him to travel alongside Santa helping to deliver all the Christmas presents. But no one ever takes his ideas seriously. But after Santa’s sleigh, presents and reindeer are stolen by a mysterious festive space villain, there’s only one kitty that can save the day!
Mayor of London, Dick Whittington, is turning on the Christmas lights of London for the very first time. But when a giant white whale swims into the Thames and swallows Santa Claus whole, Dick, his trusty sidekick Cat and a host of fairytale favourites must embark on a quest to stop Christmas being ruined forever.
