Moone Boy is a British sitcom that was created and written by Chris O'Dowd and Nick Vincent Murphy. The show follows a young boy named Martin Moone (David Rawle) who has a very active imagination and often seeks the advice of his imaginary friend, Sean Murphy (Chris O'Dowd), to help him navigate through his life in Boyle, County Roscommon, Ireland during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Martin is the youngest member of his family which includes his parents, Debra and Liam (played by Deirdre O'Kane and Peter McDonald), and his three older sisters, Trisha, Fidelma, and Sinead. Trisha is the oldest and resents Martin for being the youngest and getting all of the attention. Fidelma is the academic overachiever who is trying to get into Yale, and Sinead is the rebellious teenager who is constantly getting into trouble.

Throughout the series, Martin gets into all sorts of adventures and mischief with Sean by his side. He also has a crush on his neighbor, Padraic, who is obsessed with Vikings and often tries to convince Martin to join his club. Martin's school life is filled with bullies and a strict principal, who is always trying to break up his friendship with Padraic.
