I found out a bit more about Thunderpants, such as Rupert's name in it and the plot in more detail. Ok Patrick (played by Bruce Cook) is a loser with only one friend Alan (Rupert) because he has a horrible habit of farting really loud and smelly. But fortunatley Alan has no sense of smell, he's also a junior mad scientist(the plot thickens)! So Alan gets NASA involved, a schoolteacher and the world's best tenor and they all collaborate to use Patrick's uh "talent" to put him up in space. Sounds FUN!!!
