An unforgettable children's superhero adventure, filled with extreme silliness and unquestionable danger.

about the production

Marvin the Mischievous Moose presents Captain Cauliflower with a mystical magic hat that gives him superpowers. We follow his adventures into outer space and deep under the ocean, saving those in peril, but can he beat his arch nemesis the evil and odorous Captain Onion?
