Nobody Shall Rule!
1 June 2009 | by OdanUrrSee all my reviews

Resan Till Melonia is an early masterpiece from Per Åhlin. The Swedish readers probably recognize his other work "Dunderklumpen" or "Karl Bertil Johnsson".

The plot is simple, there are two islands, Plutonia and Melonia. Plutonia is ruled by two villains named Slug and Slagg, and Melonia is ruled by Prospero the all powerful wizard. Slug and Slagg has made Plutonia into an island made of machines, and made the children operate the machines like slaves.

One boy named Ferdinand escapes and makes the trip to Melonia, where he meets Prospero and all the other creatures that live there. Together they decide to rescue all of Ferdinands friends.

If you have seen "Dunderklumpen" you know what to expect. Pure magic. Åhlin is the real all powerful wizard. Don't let the language discourage you to watch this, I know that subtitles do exist. This is a true work of art by one of the Swedish wizards of animations.
