Series 1, Episode 9 - Roy Goes To The Movies

After a trip to the cinema to see a horror movie Roy discovers that being a cartoon boy can have its drawbacks when you are frightened.

Further details

Ghoul Claw is supposed to be the scariest movie in years. Roy is eager to see it but his mother forbids him as he is too young. Roy and his friends hatch a plan to fool the cinema attendant and get in to see the film. It turns out to be a bad idea; Roy is terrified by the movie and it is proving very difficult to hide this fear, as his nightmares appear in a thought bubble above his head.

His family is kept awake with his nightly bouts of screaming and he is being teased by Kathy the class bully. The animated boy needs to find a way to overcome his fear so he can get a decent night's sleep and seek revenge.
