Dynamic duo Sean Taylor and Bruce Ingman present a boinging, bouncing comedy — and a masterful display of emergency trampolining skills.

Holy moly! A terrible thing has happened to the Great Elastic Marvel, five times World Trampolining Champion. There he is, practicing his deadly difficult, quadruple headfirst flip, when suddenly he flips right out a window and plunges toward — gasp! — a zooful of lions, and — gasp! — a speeding railroad train — and, well, even more unthinkable dangers. Can his superduper springing skills save him from earning a title as the Man with Rubber Legs and His Bottom in Plaster?
