Storyline

The Communist Resistance has captured Von Strohm, Gruber, Bertorelli and his men. René (still disguised as a Franciscian vicar) has given them the copies of the paintings - which they think are the real ones - and convinces the communists not to shoot them, but ask ransom for them. The communists let René and Leclerq go and decide to keep Mini (who's still disguised as a baby, with the original paintings in her nappies). It turns out general Von Klinkerhoffen won't pay the ransom and Michelle suggests robbing the town bank in order to pay the ransom and get Von Strohm, Gruber, Bertorelli, Mimi and, most important, the paintings back safe and sound.

Burn your knickers!!

Gruber, von Strohm and Bertorelli are being kept hostage by The Communist Resistance, a ransom is set for their lives. Rene tries to blackmail General von Klinkrrhoffen, who declines, the only option is to rib a bonk.

It's another crazy episode, Rene's magnetic charms are once again proving to be fatal, with Louise of the Communist Resistance now also after him.

Favourite scene has to be Here Flick watching from his Pram, that Wonderful line, 'not the Mickey Mouse binoculars.' He and Helga truly were a laugh a minute.

7/10
