The Fountain of Life is the source of all life forces in the Bosco World. Princess Apricot, who is supposed to become Queen of Fountainland-the Guardian of the Fountain of Life-is kidnapped by villains who aim to rule the Bosco World.

If Princess Apricot can't take the queen's throne by the next solar eclipse, the Fountain of Life will dry up. The animals living in the forest of Bosco, including Frog, Otter and Tortoise, decide to help Princess and take her to Fountainland in order to protect their peaceful life in the Bosco World. So begins the journey in a balloon full of dreams, hope, adventures, and love!

Oh this was nostalgic! I was 5 when I watched this with my sister, we cried so much at the end. Now I watched it again and I'm so surprised how much I still remembered the show. It's a kids show, no deeper meaning no food for thought just a fun adventure with anthropomorphic animals and a cryptic story, and comically incompetent bad guys. The story doesn't explain itself, many questions remain unresolved - what was Apri doing outside Fountainland at the beginning and what happens to her and the throne at the end? If the people of Fountainland are actual humans what are all read more
