Electrical engineer Dave Brewster and his family relocate to a coastal trailer park so that he can join the team working on the Thunderer, the latest and greatest of [=ICBMs=] and the one which will hopefully settle [[ColdWar this pesky arms race once and for all]]. But the Brewster kids hear a strange sound no adult can detect, and see an eerie light in the sky. Once they arrive at their new home they are lured to a coastal cave where they, and the children of the other scientists, are introduced to a pulsating, glowing blob, which telepathically communicates with them.

But that isn't the extent of the blob's powers - soon the military base housing the Thunderer suffers a string of inexplicable accidents, each occurring near a creepy smiling child, culminating in the rocket's test launch resulting in spectacular, fiery disappointment. The military rushes to take down the star-spawn, but the children form a human wall and allow the blob to ascend back into the heavens. Finally free of its influence, Bud explains that all over the planet, other children have done as they did, sabotaging the nukes and doomsday devices of the world's nations. In awe, Mrs. Brewster remarks that "the world is having a second chance," and the movie closes on a ''[[Literature/TheBible Bible]]'' quote: "Verily, I say unto you... except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." (St. Matthew, Ch 18, v. 3)

* MoralEventHorizon: Ostensibly the blob crosses this line when it kills Joe. But then, no-one cares.
** In Blobby's defense, Joe was beating his stepson rather severely, had threatened to break his neck and, in his drunken and enraged state, might actually have done so. Those who aren't openly attacking the blobs agents are dealt with non-lethally, and even when one of them tries to smash the blob with a rock, the blob merely destroys the rock.
