Dick sets out on a journey to London in search of his fortune but when he gets there, he has no luck and so he decides to return to Plymouth. On the way however he bumps into a fairy who predicts his fortune lies in London Town. After meeting Alice and Fitwarren, Dick finds he now has a job and a girl who he has fallen in love with. Things start looking up and Dick and his new pet cat Tommy seem to be settling in.

Unfortunately, things don’t go to plan and the Evil Rat soon has a hand in Dicks undoing, planting a golden necklace Dick was meant to be looking after in his pocket to make it look like he stole it. Dick is thrown out and all looks lost until the fairy once again persuades him to return and prove his innocence, the only problem is they are about to set sail on a boat and Dick must stow aboard. After the ship they are on is in a terrible storm, everyone is sunk and only with the help of the fairy can they once again get to dry land where they are met by the Sultan of Morocco.

This however is problematic as the Evil Rat turns up and challenges Dick to a fight, but with some last minute training from a mystery guest can Dick save the day...
