The No. 1 Car Spotter Synopsis

When the family's cart breaks down and there's no way of bringing goods to market, it's Number 1 who devises the Toyota Cow-rolla and saves the day. He runs errands for his family and helps Mama Coca-Cola feed the busloads of people who stop for her delicious fried akara. Number 1 even helps Grandmother get to the medical centre when she can't afford treatment. Number 1 is bright and plucky and resourceful - a fantastic new character in what will undoubtedly prove to be a brilliant series!
