The Looney Moonies are the characters in an internet-based cartoon named after them. They were created to help campaign for the Earth’s moon get a unique name. In the future the Looney Moonies are ready to take you on more adventures and help you learn about our Universe.
The Looney Moonies were created by a group of friends — animators, writers, and collaborators — who believe that social communication is also a fun way to educate people (especially kids). So be sure you join with is as we continue to have fun exploring space with our Looney Moonie cartoon characters.
For their current adventures the Looney Moonies have joined in the Name the Moon campaign. So right now they’re campaigning to give the moon from the planet Earth a unique name. Be sure you follow their adventures during the Name the Moon campaign here or on the Name the Moon website. And then watch for new adventures once the Name the Moon campaign ends.
You can support the Looney Moonies by following their adventures and telling your friends to follow them too.
By supporting the Name the Moon campaign you are also helping the Looney Moonies. And once you sign the e-petition and enter your favorite name for the Moon you’ll be able to download fun Looney Moonie coloring pages, poster and even a storybook.
Plus by participating you’ll contribute to Ryan’s Well Foundation and Water.org, charities that do work throughout the world to bring safe water to people who need it.
Then, as Summer Solstice nears, a group of solar system experts will choose a list of finalist names. At that time you can choose your favorite name from the finalist list. Maybe the name you submit will be chosen!
