Synopsis for Choo Choo: "Lost City of Gold"
Choo Choo and Cherry fly to South America to appear in a jungle movie. In the jungle Choo Choo meets an eccentric old crackpot, who lives in a palace the size of a small city, filled with strange inventions. He has a winged Bird Dog named Rover. The old coot looks just like Mr. Burke, the movie director, and all the clocks in his palace run at very high speeds, and he gifts Choo Choo a magic ring, "to make the wearer's days pass in swift happiness." When things get too weird Choo Choo runs away, and almost escapes across a chasm, but has a bad fall, and wakes up in a familiar part of the jungle. Cherry and Mr. Burke are worried about her, because she's been missing for four months. Choo Choo thinks she's just had a bad dream.
Director Burke's real reason for flying to South America turns out to be in search of his twin brother, who is believed to have discovered a lost city of gold! Cherry and Choo Choo fly back to Hollywood, very disappointed, and very puzzled about those missing four months. Choo Choo is still wearing the old crackpot's "magic ring."
