Moony The Moonman is
the only inhabitant of the Earth's moon. Moony had always
assumed that he was the only living thing in the
Universe until he discovered that the
Moon had been visited by other beings from that
"Big Blue Ball" in the sky.
Before then, Moony had lived an incredibly lonely
and boring existence -- never meeting,
or seeing, another living creature. Then, one
day, while visiting The Sea of Tranquility,
Moony found the remains of the Apollo 11
spacecraft, and the elaborate scientific equip-
ment left behind by the American astronauts when
they returned to Earth.
Soon, Moony learned to operate the radios that Neil
Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin -- the
first Humans to set foot on the Moon -- had
abandoned. So now, Moony is able to listen
to all kinds of communications broadcast from
Earth, and his once-dreary life has
Back to Top
Nobody knows, not even Moony himself. He
may have, actually, been born on the Moon,
or he may have, originally, come from some other
place in the vast Universe. But, as far
as Moony is concerned, he has always lived on the
Moon. Also, he doesn't remember ever
having a mother, father, or any other relatives.
Again, nobody knows. Moony has no way of
knowing his age and neither do we.
Moony gets all the nourishment he requires by
eating some of the meteorites, from
outer space, that frequently land on the Moon's surface.
Because of Moony's unique physiology and
highly-efficient metabolism, his body is
able to completely process and absorb all the
metals and chemicals found in meteorites
without producing any useless and disgusting waste
This means that Moony never has to go to the
bathroom -- which is a very good thing,
because there are no bathrooms on the Moon.
On the Moon the nights are two weeks long, and
Moony does most of his sleeping during
those periods. When darkness comes, Moony
likes to find a nice, comfortable Moon crater
to sleep in, and, he prefers to sleep upside down,
in the crater, because it gives him a feeling
of security. Once in a while, though, Moony
has insomnia, so he puts himself to sleep by
When Moony discovered the remains of the Apollo
11 Lunar Excursion Module in The Sea
of Tranquility, his curiosity caused him to closely
examine them. And, while doing so, he
received a near-fatal electric shock from the
Moon-Lander's power supply.
This shocking experience gave Moony an enormous
brain-boost -- while, at the same time,
it also downloaded all of the scientific
information stored in the spacecraft's computers into
his newly-expanded mind. And, as a result,
Moony can now understand everything that he
hears broadcast from Earth on the radios that were
left behind by the Apollo 11 astronauts.
