Genre:

Synopsis:
Off the island of Colchis near Greece, Dr. Henry has a recently-uncovered volume that claims the Golden Fleece was real. June has been helping. The party lands near ruins and splits up to search. Rocky falls into a cellar and finds the Golden Fleece! He dons it to climb out. But feels dizzy... Searching, the Challengers spot Rocky in the fleece. He runs - and a flame-breathing dragon charges, then vanishes. Dr. Henry guesses Rocky is “trapped in the fleece’s powers” and summons mythical creatures from a “never-never land.” An ancient vase of fluid might be important. Hunting Rocky, the Challengers are grabbed by a cyclops! Ace recalls its weakness is vision. He grabs a beehive and pitches it. Assailed by bees, the cyclops hides in a grotto. Dr. Henry and June have deciphered that the fluid changes gold to base metals - it can destroy the fleece’s power. While Rocky charges Ace and Red on a centaur! Prof snags a hoof with a vine, cowboy-style. Rocky hears a strange siren song and wanders to the beach. A mermaid sings - then flings fluid in Rocky’s face. It’s June in disguise! The golden fleece fades to normal. With the magic gone, Rocky’s head clears. The mythical creatures fade away to the land of legends.
