Adventures of Hal 5 was aimed directly at the British kiddie-matinee trade. The title "character" is an automobile owned by a middle-class family. A crooked garage owner tries to swipe the vehicle, but the kids in the family are too fast for the thief. Lots of "wacky" car chases here, but you probably caught on to that. The film was based on Henry Donald's book Hal 5 and the Haywards.
