Jack (Kit Connor) decides to help his Grandpa (Sir Tom Courtenay), a World War II flying ace, who now suffers from Alzheimer's disease, escape from an old folks' home run by Miss Dandy (Jennifer Saunders), who has ulterior motives.
Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three, and he's heading on an epic adventure across the seasons. Will he get back to his family in time for Christmas?
Widowed factory hand Len Spud becomes a billionaire after inventing a new kind of toilet roll, Bumfresh, buying a palatial mansion, complete with staff and celebrity butler Warwick Davis, for himself and twelve-year old son Joe. Joe feels alienated by the new life-style, trying to fit in at the local school by keeping his wealth a secret and wary of Len's gold-digging new girlfriend Sapphire Diamond. Unfortunately Len reveals Joe's identity and he is surrounded by greedy new 'friends', with his one true friend Bob feeling betrayed and refusing to take his money. Consequently Joe decides to use his money to do good but then something happens to provide Len with a wake-up call to make things better between him and his son.Written by

You see the 1994 movie, Ritchie Rich, well imagine that but without a budget, without stars, without humour and you will be near to 'Billionaire Boy's. With a real TV budget, predictable plot and no real property story. I mean in places, the dialogue and logic of the 'film' make no sense, not even enough for a five year old.
