Strange kids' serial - great fun!
6 June 2004 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

I last saw this about twenty years ago as a cinema serial series, and loved every minute of it. If memory serves, a young boy discovers the enchanted head of an ancient rainmaker in a box, and as this is a talking head with magical powers, they become great friends(!). You'd think this would be the stuff of nightmares to young kids, but it's actually quite charming. Various villains see the money-making potential of the head and pursue the boy through a series of cliffhanger adventures. I also recall various spells the head could conjure up (while his eyes did a little jig), and the fact that you were invited to sing the theme song over the closing credits. Altogether now - "Chico-banna-walla - wanna make-a the rain!!!" Great stuff, I'd love to see it again!
