Flipper's New Adventure

Synopsis: While widowed Porter Ricks is away at school learning to be a park ranger, his teen-aged son, Sandy, under adult supervision from a neighbor, remains at the family home in the Florida Keys with his pet dolphin, Flipper. While Po (as Porter is called by most) is away, Sandy learns that the family home, built on state land, is being torn down to make way for a highway. In turn, Sandy would be sent to live with relatives, while Flipper would be sent to the seaquarium permanently. Not wanting to be separated from Flipper, Sandy, using his skiff, runs away with Flipper. A distraught Po returns home to look for his son. Meanwhile, the Hopewell family from Britain are vacationing in the area. Their sailboat is hijacked by three escaped convicts, who take the father, Halsey, hostage, and set the three Hopewell women - mother Julia, and teen-aged daughters Gwen and Penny - adrift, they who eventually land on the island where Sandy is hiding.

How long?

Till I find Sandy,

that's how long!

Till I search every

little bay and cove

up and down

the Florida coastline!

Anywhere a boy might try

to hide with a dolphin.

Well, you don't need

to worry none

about him going out

into the open ocean!

Why not?

Well, see, about the time

Sandy disappeared,

the coast guard

was searching every inch

of that water out there,

using planes and everything,

looking for three

escaped convicts.

Gil Bateson,

you heard of him,

and two other


Gil Bateson?

For a while they thought

they'd headed out in a boat.

If Sandy had been out there,

they'd have spotted him

right off.

I know. I checked

first thing.

It's a big ocean.

But Sandy wouldn't go out

there in just a skiff.

Even you couldn't have

made him that desperate.

Po! Wait!

I've been saving this

for you, Flipper's horn.

Sandy went off

without it.

It might help you

find him.


Mr. L.C. Porett.

Sorry I was

so angry with you.

I know, you were only

trying to do well.

That's the lord's truth,

Po. It sure is.

Help me out, will you?

Sorry, Flipper.

That's empty.

That was the last

can of food too.

I guess I'm in trouble.

Bad trouble.

Flipper, I don't care what

happens or what you say.

I'm not

turning back now.

Thanks, Flipper.

Guess I'm not

that hungry yet.

Sam! Sam!


Dang-blast it!

You're getting too old

to hear anything!

There's a castaway

out there.

I'm changing my course

to pick him up.

Oh, no.


Flipper, it's gaining.

You've got to help me.

Sam! Sam! Sam!


Speed her up, Sam!


Sam! I think you got

to speed her up!

He's pulling away!

All right.

He's pulling away!

Faster, Sam! Faster!

20 years you've been

working on that engine!

It can't even catch up

with one puny boy
