Junior Earplug Adventures: Natural Selection (Part 11)


Meanwhile the ageing thespian, Sir Dodger Muir, and the former children’s TV actor, Bert Frogget – best known as Aquaplug – were being interviewed on live television by the museum’s TV reporter, Rupert Piles…

Sir Dodger was in the middle of a witty anecdote, when he was interrupted by…

…the passing multiple feet of the trans-galactic prospectors as they went about their urgent, self-appointed task.

“I say,” he quipped to camera, “have you ever seen such a group of handsome fellows? They remind me of when I was in repertory theatre several decades past.

To which Mister Plop replied: “Yeah, sure, you weird orange guy: let me draw you a map.”

And the purple and green earplugs continued to watch and listen when the prospectors formed a circle to discuss the map that Mister Plop had so expertly drafted for them – like the former gravedigger that he was…
