    1. Who is Moony The Moonman?

     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
     changed forever.

    2. Where did Moony come from?

     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.

    3. How old is Moony?

     Again, nobody knows.  Moony has no way of knowing his age and neither do we.

    4. What does Moony eat and drink?

     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 by-products.

     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.

    5. When and how does Moony sleep?

     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
     counting stars.

    6. How can Moony understand communications from Earth?

     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.
