This dramatic cartoon series will be enjoyed and appreciated by the entire family, mom and dad, too! “The Terrible Typhoon” is the first of many episodes in this rather substantially revised version of the classic novel, “Swiss Family Robinson”. In this segment, the viewer is introduced to the Robinson family while they are aboard a luxury sailing ship headed for Australia. They are a loving, praying family with three children (two boys and a girl).
Several humorous and heartwarming scenes lead up to the sudden eruption of a fierce storm that lasts for several days and finally causes the ship to run aground on a reef. Four of the five members of the Robinson family are left stranded without a life raft aboard the shipwrecked vessel while the oldest son, Fritz, has been blown overboard by the howling typhoon. This volume ends at this point.
