JavaScript is an underappreciated language far more interesting than its Java-style syntax or browser-scripting context would suggest. It is a fully object-oriented language despite the fact that it has no classes; it is a “prototype-based” language, like Self.

I have no idea what “MooTools” is, but its parent company has a page with a nicely laid out series of steps for learning this language. Another good resource is Eloquent JavaScript, a well-written and comprehensive guide to the language.
