Anglo Ace
Synopsis
Anglo Ace is dining out with friends. The meal is interrupted by a disheveled-looking firefighter who has been looking for him. It seems that a tanker has caught fire at the docks. Its proximity to some oil-storage tanks means that the whole town could blow. Anglo Ace surrounds the ship in a giant Anglo bubble and tows it out to sea where it explodes. Anglo Ace is thanked for saving the town in the nick of time. He then makes up for his lost dinner by eating some Anglo Bubbly bubble gum.

The prison governor watches and vows, as the three escapees stride through the prison with impunity, that this is as far as they will get.
