In a failed attempt to fly the castle to Austria, Duckula, Igor and Nanny end up in Australia instead. The castle lands in the wallaby patch of farmer, Bill Platypus. And the wallabies raid Duckula’s kitchen. In an attempt to make up for landing in his property, Duckula offers the clock to Mr. Platypus after he expresses admiration for it and says his uncle Rodney the horologist would “give his eye teeth for a clock like that.” Igor tries to protest but Duckula shushes him. Once Mr. Platypus has driven away with the clock in his Jeep Igor is finally allowed to speak. He explains that the clock is “an essential part of the castle’s flying mechanism” and that without it they shall be unable to return to Transylvania. Duckula, Igor, and Nanny set out to rent a car to follow Mr. Platypus but hear his distress call through the radio in a nearby airplane and steal the plane to rescue him. Mr. Platypus has run out of gas and is stranded in the bush, forced to listen to Dimitri and Sviatoslav tell a series of increasingly terrible jokes about Australia. Hey Dimitri, what do you get when you cross a sheep with a kangaro? I don’t know Sviatoslav, what do you get when you cross a sheep with a kangaroo? You get a wooly jumper

Hey Dimitri, what is small, gray and has a trunk? A little elephant? No a koala bear going on holiday

Knock knock Who’s there? Walt. Walt, who? Walt-zing Matilda, waltzing Matilda

Duckula (despite never having flown a plane before, and a weak grasp on the history of aviation) manages to get himself, Nanny and Igor out to Mr. Platypus’s location to rescue him and ask for the clock back. Only before he can finish asking for the clock, Mr. Platypus begs Duckula to take it back.

They return to Transylvania only to discover all the wallabies are still in the kitchen eating of Duckuka’s beloved food. The episode finished in typical Duckula fashion with him screaming and the narrator giving a rendition of “Home on the Range” with creepy lyrics about hell monsters and vile slimy things slithering all day.
