Horning in on Flipper
26 September 2007 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Sandy (Luke Halpin) and Bud (Tommy Norden) are playing in the water with Flipper when Ricks (Brian Kelly) arrives; he orders his sons out of the water so they can perform neglected chores. Unbeknownst to the Ricks family, nasty fisherman Ken Drake (as Dorrie Stone) has been spying from some bushes. Mr. Drake is impressed with the tricks he has seen Flipper perform; he captures the dolphin, employing the "horn" he saw the boys using to call their pet. While the Ricks family wonder about their missing pet, Drake plans to sell the trapped Flipper to a traveling water circus - which he does, for $500.00. Will the Ricks family be able to recover their lost pet?
