The Story

Plot: Froggie and the boys run into Professor Hector Hannibal Horatio Gravy, a down-on-his-luck theatrical performer and animal trainer in need of gasoline to get to town. The Professor's animals - Lancelot the Lion and Tammany the Tiger - accidentally get loose, and roam the town, notably sneaking into Janet's house, and scaring her parents.
