The adventures of 26 lively letters who can make words come to life by holding hands.
When a flying saucer crash-lands, F makes a new friend: Fred, who misses his mummy and wants to go home. Can her friends give F the boost she needs to fly Fred to the final frontier?
F sees E and T, who is in capital mode and look at the crash-landed flying saucer. F meets an alien. The alien says his name is Fred. F introduces him to E and T, who turns back into lowercase mode. F asks where Fred is from. F points to his home planet, which is far away from Alphaland. Fred wants to go home. F wants to fly him home, but he's too heavy. F has failed.
With all that fog, F mistakes N as Fred, and N refuses to take Fred home. Then, Fred turns into N. T brings the vowels to help them.
Words used (N is Fred)
- FEN - Fred, F, T, and the vowels are in a fen.
- FIN - F has a shark's fin on her head. They try to swim to Fred's home, but they can't reach.
- FUN - F, U, and Fred bounce so high they can almost touch Fred's planet, but they don't make it.
- FAN (star word) - F has a fan on her back. After counting down from 5 to 1, they blast off and fly to Fred's home. Fred is happy to meet his mum again.
