Synopsis
After the Van Snobbes have $50,000 in jewels stolen from their mansion, Tubby goes there in disguise to investigate. After causing a commotion there, he is ordered home and is punished by having to stay in his room. Late at night he awakens to see a lion apparently walking across his back fence. The next morning he sees Gloria going to pick wildflowers in the woods and warns her that there are lions in the area. She disregards him, but that evening comes the report that she is missing. Tubby grabs a chair, in the best lion-tamer tradition, and goes to the woods to find her.
