Tommy Tricker and the Stamp Traveller is a 1988 Canadian film, which was written and directed by Michael Rubbo. It is the seventh in the Tales for All series of children's movies created by Les Productions la Fête.

Premise[edit]

It is a children's film in which a young boy, Ralph, and his sister discover a magical ability to travel the world riding within postage stamps. Complicated by a series of rules, they are soon lost in such far-flung places as Australia and China. Ralph is plagued by a debilitating stutter, and the film is essentially a coming-of-age story wherein Ralph can speak unfettered by the movie's end.

Soundtrack[edit]

The movie features one of the first appearances of Rufus Wainwright. Wainwright also provides the song I'm a Runnin' and his sister, Martha Wainwright, provides the song "Tommy, Come Back" for the soundtrack.
