During a Savings Week (1976)

Film details


Noah and Nelly discuss their poor finances, deciding that what they haven't got, won't worry them. The SkylArk goes underwater and finds buried treasure in the shape of unhappy gold coins. One of them, Old Bob complains of nightly gambling raids and Nelly decides to make a stand by knitting a giant piggy bank for the coins to hide in. The gamblers arrive in the form of mean looking playing cards, but they are persuaded instead to do something more worthwhile and the cards form themselves into a pyramid.
