PlotEdit

Duckman and Cornfed act as chaperones for Ajax's class trip to the Sudan. When Ajax is kidnapped. Duckman and Cornfed must rescue him from the evil Fakir, intent on killing the royal family. Whilst scamming the Sulton out of money, Cornfed and Duckman manage to get themselves captured. The Princess however, takes a liking to Duckman and has him brought to her, and after three days, Cornfed eventually escapes on his own and finds them. Princess Fallopia is madly in love with Duckman, but just so happens to have an identical face to Ajax.  She tells them the location of the whicker basket containing Ajax, and Cornfed and Duckman soon find it. However, they are then captured yet again. The Fakir takes them to his tent of terror and explains his plan to poison the Princess at the royal toast. The three escape yet again and attempt a number of bad comedy routines to switch out the goblets at the toast. They are unsucesfull each time, but as it turns out Ajax and Fallopia had switched places.

NotesEdit

  • The episode is a parody of the "Road To..." musical comedies from the 1940's and 50's, starring Bing Crosby and Bob Hope
  • A Fallopia is a type of flower.
  • Duckman claims to be rehearsing for a play written by Salman Rushdie. 
  • At the end of the episode, Duckman says "Sing, and we're out." But when the cast starts singing there is no sound whatsoever. At this point, a message scrolls across the bottom of the screen reading "Due to a limited music budget, we have used our allotment of one song per show. Consider yourselves lucky." (The song is credited as "Silent Farewell")
  • When the last sentence, "Consider yourselves lucky" appears, it is just as Charles, Mambo, Bernice, Fluffy and Uranus slide in to frame. A combanation of these five voices singing would no doubt be irretating. 
  • Some fake credits are given at the beginning of the episode, such as;
    • "Gowns by Edith Head." Edith Head was a famous Hollywood costume designer from the 40's to the 70's. Interestingly, none of the characters actually wear a gown in the episode.
    • "Makeup by Samuel L. Westmore."
    • "Wigs by Adrian"
    • "Color by USACOLOR", done in the logo style of "Technicolour", a company that actually fell out of favor fairly quickly for better coloring companies, like WarnerColor and EdisonColor, but is well rememberd for being tied to the classic Walt Disney films, such as Snow White, Dumbo, Pinocchio, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
