Follyfoot: Gypsy (ITV 16 July 1971 with Walter Sparrow)



Follyfoot is looking after a badly distressed horse belonging to a Gypsy who has been in prison after assaulting two farmers who were attacking his steed. When he is released the Gypsy is determined to get his revenge. Trouble starts when the farmers kidnap the horse and Steve and the Gypsy mount a rescue attempt only for the horse to be freed and Steve captured.

A good fun episode, after the introductions of the first two weeks we are here somewhat into story of the week territory.
