''Létající Cestmír'' (English title would be ''The Flying Cestmir'', known in German as ''Literature/DerFliegendeFerdinand'') is a Czech children's book / TV series by Milos Macourek (book) and Václav Vorlícek (directing) from the 1980s. It's about the Cloudcuckoolander school boy Cestmír / Ferdinand, who one day is magically transported to a planet of magical flowers. Of course, nobody believes him. However, he brought two magical flowers back. Much HilarityEnsues. And then, other people are drawn to the flower planet - and the city's barber wants to get said flowers for his own advantage...
----
!!Tropes:
* BaldOfEvil: The barber is the villain of the story. He's bald and wears a moustache.
* CassandraTruth: Even more so when he appears as his father to tell off the barber that he stole the flower pots. Of course, at this time all the people healed by the barber state that they'd still support him even if the accusation was true.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: The professor [[AnAesop explicitly says so]]. Note however, that the barber's son is pretty much an asshole despite being a kid, and the professor is a good guy despite being old. It's really more about whether you are "a child at heart".
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: The protagonist. After reading a pseudoscientific article about telekinesis, he thinks it's really possible in our world. Of course, [[HowUnscientific most people wouldn't believe in magical flowers either...]]
* CoolTeacher: Philip, who falls in love with the protagonist's big sister. He helps them in their fight against the villain.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight / CassandraTruth: The one time Cestmír / Ferdinand tells a story he didn't make up, nobody believes him.
* {{Cyborg}}: The institute where David's father works, which aims for the improvement of man, has invented among other things a helm which improves the olfactory sense and a more practical tool for improving hearing.
* TheDitz: The barber's son. In one scene he fails to add two one-digit numbers! (AlternateCharacterInterpretation: He sees homework as beneath his dignity.)
* EternalYouth: What one of the flowers does. [[spoiler:The professor uses it, but apparently nobody else.]]
* {{Flight}}: Done by one of the two flowers Cestmír / Ferdinand gets.
* GenerationXerox: Everyone tells Cestmír / Ferdinand that he's "just like his father". Consequently, when the one flower turns him into an adult, he's played by his father's actor. [[InformedAbility Despite the fact that there isn't really much similarity.]]
* GoAmongMadPeople: The father is mistaken for crazy, because his son (remember, in his adult form he looks like his father) is around and acts, well, not like himself. You know what I mean.
* GreenRocks: The meteorite which is found by Cestmír / Ferdinand and later, his teacher Philip. It glows blue, and sometimes changes its size; when people come too close to it, they're sucked into it and go to the planet of the magical flowers.
* HealingHands: Another flower can heal about any disease, including baldness. Which the barber uses to become a famous healer. At the end, the city's hospital is empty.
* JerkAss: The barber and his son.
* MagicalLand: The planet of the magical flowers, of course.
* OvernightAgeUp: One flower the protagonist gets can do that for a few hours. Which he and his allies use a few times.
* PlantPeople: The flowers in the other world can speak, and apparently humans can communicate with them.
* {{Psychokinesis}}: Cestmír / Ferdinand thinks he can obtain this after reading an article about a fakir. Later, he tries using this to open the safe where the stolen flowers are.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: The barber again.
* SmallNameBigEgo: The barber's son. He wants to be called "grand vizier" by the other kids and throws a temper when they won't.
* SternTeacher: Ms Klepácová / Knobloch
* SuperIntelligence: One flower (notice the pattern?). Also gives all kinds of abilities, like speaking Japanese.
* SuperSenses: The barber's wife uses it [[MundaneUtility to learn all kinds of interesting gossip]], which she puts into the newspaper.
* SuperStrength: Also by one flower. The barber and his son once use it to win a tennis match (6:0, 6:0, 6:0, unsurprisingly).
* TemptingFate: At the end, the barber has lost the flowers, though he has the meteorite. When the boys mock him, he shows them the stone... which flies away into space, never to return.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: The protagonist and his friends.
* UrbanFantasy
* {{Villain}}: The barber, who wants to use the flowers to make money and get famous.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: The barber, since he can cure people's maladies easily.
* YearInsideHourOutside: Philip spends almost one year there, but on Earth only a few minutes pass.
