This adven­ture con­sists  of four half-hour episodes, broad­cast at noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT on Fri­days. Now read on dot, dot, dot…



While strolling home one warm Autumn-in-New-York eve, Jack wan­ders into a cof­fee shop, the Casa Luna, which has a habit of appear­ing and dis­ap­pear­ing, tak­ing the occu­pants with it. At mid­night, the Casa Luna trans­forms itself and Jack is no longer in Man­hat­tan, he’s some­where in the trop­ics. Jack dis­cov­ers his long lost uncle, the adven­tur­er Sir Hen­ry Jowls. Appar­ent­ly, the per­son who lured Sir Hen­ry into his present predica­ment is the infa­mous Madame Zee, also known as “The Drag­on Lady”.

Jack is lug­ging around a mys­te­ri­ous round, green stone in a bowl­ing bag. He was told to deliv­er the stone to Sir Hen­ry Jowls, but he can’t find him. Nor can he find the Casa Luna.

Jack has been hav­ing dreams about a celes­tial city, the fabled city of the Merkah­bah. The Casa Luna does final­ly appear and Jack finds him­self in a desert, at a small oasis vil­lage. And there, seat­ed at a table, is Sir Hen­ry Jowls! Except, it isn’t the same Sir Hen­ry who per­suad­ed Jack to steal the stone in the first place.

Jack meets the beau­ti­ful demoness, Leela, but she too is dif­fer­ent. Sir Hen­ry tells Jack the only way he can reach the fabled Merkah­bah is to pass through the Twi­light Realms of the Hun­gry Ghosts. So, with the mis­chie­vous Leela act­ing as a guide, Jack and Sir Hen­ry jour­ney into the land of the Hun­gry Ghosts. As Jack soon dis­cov­ers, these ghosts are hun­gry indeed. Here’s an extract:
