SYNOPSIS
Cast pic - Aaron Teoh
It all begins when Floyd gets his kite stuck in a tree...

He throws up his shoe to shift it, but that gets stuck too. So he throws up his other shoe and that gets stuck along with…  the cat, a ladder, a pot of paint, the kitchen sink, an orang-utan and a whale, amongst other things!

Will Floyd ever get his kite back???
