The Pickwick Club sends Mr. Pickwick and a group of friends to travel across England and to report back on the interesting things they find. In the course of their travels, they repeatedly encounter the friendly but disreputable Mr. Jingle, who becomes a continual source of trouble for all who know him. Pickwick himself is the victim of a number of misunderstandings that bring him both embarrassment and problems with the law.
Triumphantly brought to the screen for the first time! Another Dickens treasure springs to life in the rich traditions of "David Copperfield", "A Tale of Two Cities", "Great Expectations", and "Oliver Twist" !

[to Mr. Jingle
Sir! I have only this to say to you, sir: I might have taken a greater revenge for the indignities which I've suffered at your hands; but I will content myself with exposing you, sir - which is a duty I feel I owe to society.
[to the others present
Good fellow, Pickwick... fine heart... a stout old boy... but a little odd... slightly eccentric.
I will add this, sir: I consider you to be a ruffian, sir. And a rascal, sir. And worse than any man I've ever seen... or even heard of!
