On the surface, this film may seem like an average biology film, but like most of films from the Moody Institute of Science, there is an ulterior motive.

He would tour the country giving his ÂSermons of Science where the marvels of science provide the visible evidence of a Divine plan of creation. His work with GIs during World War II showed him the impact that...

The mole is tending his flowers, sharing them with various insects, when to his horror he discovers a set of stakes being used to mark the path of a road to be built right through his domain. At first he tries to reason with the huge bulldozer that proceeds along this track, but when that fails he digs a trench into which the machine falls. While it is helpless, the mole stakes out another route, neatly curving it around his garden and thus saving it from destruction.
