TV Mini-Series

AKA: Der Fliegende Ferdinand

School boy Cestmír is one day transported by a blue glowing meteorite to a planet of magical flowers, each of which grants its possessor some magical ability. Cestmír, after smelling one of the flowers which he brings back from the planet, is able to fly. When others are drawn to the flower planet, they also come back with flowers that grant them magical abilities. For example, one flower causes the person who smells it to rejuvenate; another boosts the person's mental ability, and confers mental skills, such as the ability to speak fluent Japanese. However, the city's barber plans to use the flowers for his own selfish purposes...
