Synopsis by Corinna Richards
Marcella has a wonderful collection of old, odd dolls. When she leaves, the dolls come to animated life. For Marcella's seventh birthday she gets a French doll, Babette, and the captain of the ship-in-the-bottle falls in love with her. Babette, seeing herself as European and thus superior, is a pain. The captain, who turns out to be a pirate, kidnaps Babette and takes off in his boat. Ann and Andy go to the rescue. On their adventures they meet a camel, fall into a candy ocean, and meet the King of Looneyland (who can only grow large by laughing at others). Meanwhile, Babette has taken over the pirate ship. When the King attacks, the captain's parrot literally deflates the King -- he is so full of hot air, he explodes. Marcella finds her toys in the pond next to her house and takes them back into the toy room.
