The Tower Bridge Cat

She has to act quickly to help Babs the Bus Driver save all the bus passengers, and the day. We watch the bus fly over the opened bridge and enjoy a beautiful firework display over the Thames at the end. The story gets its inspiration from the true story of the number 78 jumping over the opening Tower Bridge in 1952.
