“We’re off to Button Moon, Follow Mr Spoon, Button Moon”.

Mr Spoon (a wooden spoon with a big nose) and his wife and their kids, Egbert and Tina T-Spoon, lived under the gaze of Button Moon (a large yellow button) which they went up to in the washing up liquid bottle space ship that our hero Mr Spoon had made.

The family spied on the Earth through a bloody great big telescope.

Written by Ian Allen, Button Moon was basically hand-held wooden spoons over a black velvet backdrop being moved about with a narration.
