Another Children's Film Foundation production, with a difficult-to-explain storyline, but I'll try. A gang of children operate a crime-fighting unit from a converted canal boat patrolling London's canals, along with 2 shore-based kids who pedal around on Chopper bikes. Meanwhile London Zoo has got hold of a real yeti from deepest yetiland as an exhibit, which lives on ice lollipops. Some naughty men steal the yeti from the zoo for a very rich collector

and escape on another canal boat. But after a high speed (not) canal chase, the kids foil their evil plans, and the yeti is rescued safe and sound. Hoorah!

I actually know a film very similar to this which is The Mystery of the Million Dollar Hockey Puck. It has similar trappings to this; independent children's film, child actors, kids trying to catch or stop crooks, and a character in a silly costume. It's basically the Canadian equivalent to one of these and with hockey. I would include a link to it, but the YouTube video of the film has been copyright-claimed :(
