The loveable louts embark on an ornithological African jungle expedition, led by the intrepid Professor Inigo Tinkle, in search of the rare Oozelum bird - you know the one! Safari, so good, but along the way they come to grips with amorous snakes and, almost inevitably, a tribe of unknown Amazons desperate to find male mates and thus avoid the extinction of their race. The equatorial climate also seems to have an interesting effect on their prim and proper secretary, Jacki Piper, much to Jungle Boy's delight. Things appear to be chugging along just fine in their usual chaotic way until it all goes, literally, to pot when they stumble across the Nosha - a distinctly wacky, but nonetheless peckish, cannibal tribe.
