Piggy Handsome is a very confident guinea pig with a hugely inflated ego – he hails from a long line of famous guinea pigs! Handsome hasn’t yet achieved world renown, so when he realises that saving Jeff the budgie from falling off the roof would be just the thing to get on the front pages, he tells Jeff his plan. But Jeff can’t stop flapping his wings, much to Handsome’s ire. Meanwhile, the dastardly villains Dan and Dolly Dixon are seeking revenge for their time in prison. Can Handsome accidentally save the day once again?
