Duffy Moon
29 January 2008 | by Kelski89See all my reviews

OMG!!! I was so excited to see this movie really exist. I was starting to think that I dreamed it all. I thought remembered seeing it in grade school during the winter months during assembly with the entire school. I never forgot Mr. Duffy Moon. "You can do it Duffy Moon, you can do it!" -- the ever famous catch phrase that I never got out of my head. I often used this phrase as a tool to help me through elementary school. How fun and exciting to finally find it!! Everyone I've ever mentioned it to just gave me blank stares like I was making it all up. I'd started to believe them (that I made it up or dreamed it), until now. This is awesome. Now that I know the official name of the movie, I am hoping I can find it for purchase somewhere. Super Cool! Sincerely, Product of the 70's
