Synopsis for "The Mystery of the Undersea Safari"Edit
While coming to shore, Aquaman and Aqualad are greeted by a number of men, these men explain that they are colleagues of Professor Peters, who may well be doomed. They explain that the Professor was locating the sacred Idols of Idora that were stolen by pirates but were hidden at sea by a powerful wizard that set up traps to protect them so that no man may own them. Going with the men, they follow the map to the location of the idols, getting past each trap with Aquaman's help. Arriving in the secret cave of the idols, they find Professor Peters. Suddenly, the men who accompanied Aquaman reveal that they are crooks seeking to steal the idols. They tie up Aquaman, Aqualad and Peters at gun point, and as they are stealing the idols the entrance to the cave is sealed shut.
Agreeing to help the crooks get out of the cave only if they are untied, they are quickly defeated by Aquaman and Aqualad, who reveal that it was all a trick done with an abandoned raft and the help of their undersea friends. With the crooks defeated, they leave to turn them into the police and so Peters can bring the Idols to his museum.
