After a quickie song, the family moves to Westminster Abbey, where they view the stone of scone, placed 'neath yon throne for every coronation over the past six hundred years.
We are then given a peculiar and unlikely appearance by an Australian.
Now what makes this bloke's appearance odd is the presence of his companion, part of his traveling act, an unmistakable kangaroo named Hoppy.
Ah, kangaroos. Where would cartoons be without them? Unquestionably dominated by the boxing kangaroo of Sylvester the cat fame, a kangaroo would make a memorable appearance in a Harlem Globetrotters cartoon and buggery would ensue when the stolen jewelry was hidden in his pouch.
No doubt about it, this is all but virtually the same kangaroo from that Globetrotters cartoon, tho with a different owner here.
This is a throwback to the days of Hanna Barbera when Yakkee Doodle or Yogi Bear or Snaggle Puss would appear in a cartoon and end up with their own show.
Didn't happen to Hoppy, I'm afraid.
Hey, the notorious gargoyle from Jonny Quest would likewise turn up in a Funky Phantom cartoon, . . . . but I digress.
Clearly, while I have been explaining who this kangaroo is . . . the stone of scone has been stolen!!! Wam, bam, we're in a jam.
A note says that a criminal must be set free before the stone is returned.
Along the way, we get strange little limey tidbits like Anne trying to get a response out of a guard, tho after a while, the joke looks more like he is trying to intimidate her.
The Chan van turned into a double decker and a bobby stopping Henry and Stanley and insisting they pick up passengers at a bus stop is actually rather chuckling.
So have you solved the mystery yet? Chan did, even solved what the culprit's real name was.
