Actor, circus performer, gymnast and stilt-walker Wesley Daniel shakes things up as Luigi, a blue, Spoon-worshipping NaKong tribesman, who's been brought to London by anthropologist Phyllida. Phyllida hopes Luigi will gain her entry to the society as its first woman member. Goofy admirer Lucius, a botanist and the Club's acting president, sponsors Phyllida, while intrepid explorer Percy, returning from his expedition to the East Pole, vies for Phyllida's affections even though he can't take seriously the notion of a woman scientist. Chaos ensues in The Explorers Club after Luigi inadvertently insults the Queen, possibly setting the British Empire at war with the world.
