Storyline

Mr and Mrs Spoon live on Junk Planet with their daughter Tina Teaspoon. Mrs Spoon gives her husband a present - a spaceship. In each edition of the show Mr Spoon takes off in his spaceship and flies across Blanket Sky towards Button Moon. Along the way he usually sees some kind of activity such as the stars playing a game, flocks of banana birds or umbrella storm clouds. Upon reaching his destination Mr Spoon meets with some of the inhabitants of Button Moon such as the Bottle Army and follows what they are doing. Mr Spoon then looks through his telescope and watches a story unfold on another planet before heading for home. Mrs Spoon, Tina and her friend Eggbert begin to join Mr Spoon on his trips as the series progresses. Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>

"Were off to Button Moon , Follow Mr Spoon , Button Moon"
27 October 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This was on of the oddest kids programmes from the early 80's. Mr Spoon (a wooden spoon with a big nose) and his wife and child lived under the gaze of Button Moon (a large yellow button) which they went up to in the space ship that our hero Mr Spoon had made. Basically it was hand held wooden spoons over a black velvet backdrop being moved about with a narration , and i know that i was too old to be watching it when i did but it was hypnotic. A very strange one indeed that has to be seen to be believed.
