Cosgrove Hall Wiki

The Hole Truth and the seventh episode in the first season of Cosgrove Hall's 2D animated cartoon TV show "Victor and Hugo: Bunglers in Crime" that was first broadcasted on ITV in the UK on 1st November 1991.


The brothers attend the Hampstead Aesthetics and Art Appreciation Association's fancy-dress ball in the costumes of convicts, where they go down to the cellar and drill through its wall (intending to tunnel into the National Bank of Ruritania next door); however, they make a wrong turning, and end up tunnelling into the cell of Strangler (a melancholy ape) in the Hampstead Prison instead. They then make several attempts to escape from the prison, but none of them succeed until M. Meccaneaux brings them an escape cake and they construct a bicycle from the parts in it - however, when the earth gives way beneath their machine and they crash through the roof of an Underground train, the ticket collector at the next station does not believe their story even though it is true, so they are returned to the prison.
