The Acacia Avenue Safari Park is an English location, possibly in Lower Tidmarsh, Little Dimpton or Teddington. Out on the street, several locals (Libby Roberts, Henry McGee and Moira Foot?) along with a priest (Don Estelle) are alarmed by what looks like a man (Benny Hill, playing one of his "duffer" characters) with a scantily clad girl on the street. A police woman (Jeannie Collings) shows up to investigate, and Benny reveals it's just mannequin which he drapes his overcoat over to explain to the officer. Meanwhile, a woman in an overcoat (Debbie Greenhill?) strolls up, and as the miscreant reveals his mannequin, he rips off her coat to reveal her underwear, inciting a melee. He flees the by-standers into the park where he jumps onto an ostrich to ride to freedom.
