Months seemed to have passed and no sight of land; the sailors are very impatient and in the end mutiny. Just at this moment land is sighted, and here we get a very fine view of the "lookout" in the "crow's nest." The next scene gives us a fine idea of how Columbus had to fight his way with the natives, while these in the end were conquered by kindness.

He sees from his cell, the great welcome Amerigo Vespucci receives, as having added a new world to the throne of Spain.

Christopher Crocodile is an animated children's cartoon TV series. It was started in 1993 and was produced by Direct Entertainment Ltd. The eponymous protagonist of the series is Christopher Crocodile, who, according to the plot, left his native Mudagascar to devote his energy and inventive mind to helping the people of Muddytown, where most of the programmes are set. Muddy Town receives a lot of rain, which makes it a very muddy place. That's bad news for Mayor Muggins and the townsfolk, who are stuck living under a cloud all of the time, in this most unappealing of places. But it's good news for the crocodile, who likes nothing more than to wallow in the muddy pools around town, slurping on jars of peanut butter and custard. Christopher turns out to be an asset to Muddy Town, because he happens to be rather clever inventor with an eye for new gadgets, gizmos and designs, almost all of which are highly improbable in real life.
