Abstract
Spooky Boo's and Room Noodles, one of Somersaulter-Moats and Somersaulter's first children's films, is an animated lesson about fear of the dark. Faced with dark-in-your-room monsters, scary sounds and other things that go bump in the night, a child learns to invoke "room noodles" to banish the monsters. Told in a back-and-forth conversation between the child and a narrator, Spooky Boo's is a playful story meant to show children how to use their imaginations to overcome fear. The film used a technique called cut-out animation, and was extremely commercially successful.
