Dad goes gold prospecting and entrusts Charlie with an important task - keeping an eye on his shed. A bloke's shed is sacred, so Charlie is horrified when Mum finds the shed key and puts all Dad's junk out for collection. To make matters worse, Charlie loses Mum's pet cat and Grandpa loses his favourite carpet python. Can Charlie find the pets and restock the shed before anyone finds out what happened...and before Cyclone Betty hits town?
