Stan and Mabel escape

"I've got an idea," said Mabel. "Quick, let's go. And bring that banjo of yours..."

Stan and Mabel going places

A revisit to a sequence of illustrations from 'Stan and Mabel' where Stan and Mabel and their new found musical friends catch a flight to Milan before their nerve wracking performance at the world renowned La Scala.

Then they all took a short taxi trip to the bus station...
caught a bus to the train station...
took a train to the airport...
and got on a plane to Italy.
