[[TheHero Christopher]] is a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin happy cricket]] who spends his days playing his [[MacGuffin magic stringless guitar]] for his friends. But, his peace is interrupted when a purple lizard named [[BigBad Wartlord]] bans music. Making matters worse, [[MacGuffinGirl Linda the Night Star]] falls from the sky. Making matters worse, Wartlord, having mistaken the star for a diamond, is also searching for her. Thus, it's up to Christopher and his friends to rescue the night star, and stop Wartlord. Also, there's a GreenAesop tacked on just to be educational.
