Narrated By: Ringo Starr

A cute and heart-warming morality fable with a healthy dose of psychedelia. Oblio is a young boy who was born with a round head instead of a pointed head like everyone else in the village. He is shunned by society, and even though his mom makes him a pointed hat to wear, he is forced to leave town as an outcast, accompanied only by his dog, Arrow, and the classic Harry Nilsson tune, "Me And My Arrow." He has many adventures in the bizarre countryside and meets a lot of strange characters that lead him to self discovery. He finally returns to his home where the people have decided that they were wrong in banishing him, and he discovers that a point has actually grown on his head.
