Maria Carlo, a single woman, wishes for a special child. A space- borne magic seed impregnates her only to give birth to Buratino, a wooden boy, who against her will grows up to be an ordinary brat.

With Artemon, Pierrot and Toivo, his weird band pals, they occasionally sell her buns in posh quarters, where goofing around gives them inspiration for their repertoire. The air-heads fall into the trap of Carabas Barabas, a malevolent billionaire, who seeks for a wooden boy-bomb, inside of whom grow millions of magic seeds. When his world conquering plans cross paths with the pranks of the brats, an unseen chaos ensues. When the heart of Malvina, his gorgeous daughter, is up for grabs, Buratino accepts the challenge!
