Box Top Robbery

Box Top Robbery is the second Rocky and Bullwinkle story arc. It includes twelve episodes, and was broadcast as part of the first season of Rocky and His Friends on ABC during the Spring of 1960.

Plot

The basis of the world economy is not gold, silver, or even uranium but, rather, boxtops. Fiduciary Blurt, the head of the World Economic Council has informed members that someone is flooding the market with counterfeit box tops, threatening to devastate the world economy. Suspicion quickly falls on Bullwinkle, who has amassed tens of thousands of box tops. However, Bullwinkle has come by his fortune legitimately, and once his name has been cleared he is asked to appear before the Council as an expert on box tops. Blurt also summons his chief security officers, Hemlock Soames and Dr. Watkins, who are actually Boris and Natasha in disguise. As they are in fact the box top counterfeiters they realize that the jig is up and set about bundling off their stash of counterfeits, just as Rocky and Bullwinkle discover their hiding place. The heroes survive being launched into the air in an elevator car and fired upon by the Coast Guard. Boris and Natasha's printing press is accidentally destroyed by Rocky and Bullwinkle, who are given a parade and awarded medals before heading off into the sunset.
