Cosgrove Hall Wiki

Artful Dodgers is the second episode of series 2 of Victor and Hugo. It first aired on 18 September 1992. The brothers pose as art dealers, and are hired to steal a painting from New York's Museum of Modern Art (while being tailed by Tom Trowel, a pig). NOTES: One of the cinemas is showing a Danger Mouse movie.


The brothers pose as art dealers to the very, very wealthy and are hired by P. Ellsworth Belmont to steal a painting by Belvedere Beaton from New York's Museum of Modern Art (while being tailed by Tom Trowel, a pig); after Hugo stuffs the painting under his sweatshirt, both brothers pass themselves off as Spanish bullfighters to Trowel, but Hugo is too big to fit through the exit so they try to carry it out of the window (however, they are on the seventeenth floor, so they cannot). After they are discovered, they flee the Museum, but run into local police officers Captain Codeine and Louis (whose patrol car they had disabled earlier on in the episode) so are sent to jail.
