Muzzy in Gondoland

Muzzy in Gondoland (often shortened to simply Muzzy) is a British animated direct-to-video film, first created by the BBC in 1986, as a way of teaching English as a second language. The English version of Muzzy features the voices of Willie Rushton, Miriam Margolyes, Susan Sheridan, Derek Griffiths, Jack May, and Benjamin Whitrow. DMP Organization later acquired the rights to Muzzy and translated it into other languages (see below). It is unknown, however, who plays whom in the various dubbed versions of the film.


Muzzy, a large extraterrestrial with greenish-blue fur, who eats clocks and metallic objects, arrives from outer space to visit Gondoland, which is ruled over by the King and Queen. Their daughter is Princess Sylvia; Bob is their gardener; and Corvax is a scientist who works for the King. Bob and Sylvia are secretly in love and decide to elope. However, Corvax, who also loves Sylvia, sees what is happening, and informs the King and Queen. Angered, the King pursues and catches them. The King orders that Bob be sent to jail, while Sylvia is taken back to the palace. Bob shares a cell with Muzzy, who tells him that he has been jailed for eating parking meters. Realising Muzzy's unusual diet, Bob encourages Muzzy to eat the bars of the prison cell, and they escape.
