Patriotic Pelican, The

FARCE WITH SONG. Crime that once ran rampant in the streets has been all but eliminated by the city’s freedom-fighting superhero―the Patriotic Pelican. When criminals see his star-spangled cape, they crumble, knowing justice will be served. But there is one villain who doesn’t fear the Patriotic Pelican and is determined to bring doom to the city: the power-loving mastermind Damien Donte. To save the city, the Patriotic Pelican and his partner, Captain Constitution, must contend with a spoon-wielding cannibal, a lizard-worshipping cult, a wise hobo who loves peanut butter, and some overzealous fans. But in the end, the Patriotic Pelican must face off against Damien Donte in a final, epic battle to determine the fate of the city. An outrageous cult classic! Includes the original song, “Zipploppo.”
