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.

in one puny skiff!

Well, do something!

Forget it, Sam.

I said, forget it.

Whoever he is,

he don't need

any help from us.

We need help from him.

O.K., Flipper.

We're O.K. now.

All right, Flipper.

You can rest now.

Don't worry.

We'll make it.



it's just perfect.

Everything we could want.

Nobody anywhere!

They'll never find us here.

Flipper, I wouldn't

trade you for anything.

I don't care

If the skies are cloudy

Long as you're with me

It's a fine and dandy

Cotton candy world

I see many times

When I'm feelin' lonely

You come into view

It's a fine and dandy

Cotton candy world

With you

You're the prize

I won

You're the apple

on the stick

You're the one

I had to pick

You made my heart

Go tickety tickety tick

Every day is a day

of wonder

Never ever blue

It's a fine and dandy

Cotton candy

Fine and dandy

Cotton candy world

With you

Quiet, Flipper.

A plane.

I've got to hide.

An underwater cave.

We couldn't have

a better hiding place.

Flipper, this is great!

Go up and take a look,



get the boat out.

Come on.

This may be

the best break we've had

since we ran that cabin

cruiser up on the rocks.

What'll we do now?

Act like castaways,

see if we

can hitch a ride!

The boat's

leaking again!

Stuff the rags

in tighter.

O.K., Flipper?

Mummy, daddy, there's

a little boat over there

with some sick men in it.

Could be

those convicts

they've been

searching for.

Well, if it is,

they're half dead.

We'd better

take a look.

Go below and

get my gun,

will you, Julia?

That's the three.

They fit the

descriptions perfectly.

Better get

on the radio.

Can one of you

give me a line?

I wouldn't do that,


Drop your gun

on the bottom of the boat.

All right.

Now move!

Just what we need
