Harry Secombe , Spike Milligan in 'The Booted Gorilla' (found?)
On an expedition to Chinese West Africa, Bwana Bloodnok and Bwana Seagoon are hot on the trail of the gorilla when the footprints disappear behind a pepper bush, and, in their place, impressions of hobnail boots emerge. Could it be the heat? Bwana Seagoon contacts Bwana Grytpypethynne of the London Gorilla Society, who recommends the only way to trap the booted gorilla is to erect a portable boot repairer's shop in the jungle. Then suddenly, in the sleepy little Somerset village of Low Ham and East Coker, the local cobbler's shop is put up for sale. Why are the owners, Mr. Crun and Miss Bannister, anxious to emigrate to Chinese West Africa? Could it be the heat? And how is it that cobbler Crun is an adept at making boots for gorillas?
