Synopsis

Jacob Two Two is 2+2+2 years old, the youngest of five he has to say everything twice to get himself heard. Desperate to be taken seriously, when Dad needs groceries Jacob bravely volunteers to go and buy them; so embarking on his first solo mission.


The quest goes horribly wrong when Jacob loses his nerve and runs off - straight into a ten-pound hanging salami.


He wakes up to find himself in court charged with the terrible crime of insulting a grown up. The Singing Judge, Rough Justice, sentences Jacob to Slimer's Island Children's Prison, presided over by none other than the gruesome Hooded Fang! But help is on its way in the form of the heroic Child Power Masters.


Escorted by the Fang's henchman, Miss Fowl and Mr Fish, Jacob arrives at the fog-bound, crocodile infested prison guarded by the Slimers where he meets the fearsome Hooded Fang. When the Child Power Masters fail to show on time (as usual) Jacob Two Two hatches a cunning plan and decides to take on the Hooded Fang himself!


Will he out-wit Fish and Fowl and the evil Slimers or will it be the Child Power Masters who save the day? All will be revealed in George Bloomfield's hilarious rendition of Mordecai Richler's classic childrens adventure, Jacob Two Two Meets the Hooded Fang.
