Alfons has to deal with a lot of teasing - and not just because of his funny last name. Even his own father, a big and strong head chef, complains about his son's lack of muscles and tries to beef the boy up. In spite of all these difficulties, Alfons dreams of one day becoming a famous athlete or maybe even a cosmonaut. As long as he has the support of his loyal best friend Micki, anything is possible!
Based on the popular children's book series by Gerhard Holtz-Baumert.
