Embedded text or transcriptWell, this is all very nice and peaceful, Flook. But I'm getting just a little bit bored
Let's build a bathing hut - with wheels!
Next time we biuld one of these, I think we'll draw a plan
A bit rough, perhaps, but...
Oh. A lick of paint would work wonders

NotesFO0286-338: Eastern Slaves - The bathing hut built by Flook and Rufus is whirled off in a freak storm. They land in a desert, seeing mirages of London, New York, etc. but Ben the camel driver they meet seems real, although he has a flying carpet. All three are captured by El Scourge, a loathsome slave-dealer. While Flook becomes pet of a doting couple, Rufus polishes boots in the dealer's dungeons. Rufus uncorks a genii whom he sends to Flook for help. Transformed into imposing boots, Flook aided by the genii, traps El Scourge and frees all the slaves, including Rufus. In the desert, once more, the friends are rescued by a paddle steamer, off course from Rookem-on-Sea." Artwork not dated, date taken from an old catalogue. Label "Copr. '52 Gen'l Features Corp.
