S e c r e t s:  Three skunks guard their “olFactory,” armed with a canister of air freshener. Their neighbour, the rabbit, has donned his daily apparel: a gas mask. The unfortunate porcupine with his low tech defense (a clothes peg), has succumbed to the awful stench. Even the snake has failed to slither away in time. Peter’s mouse must be holding his breath. And why the Australian skink? Well, he thought he was going to star in a Harmony Kingdom box figurine and is appalled and embarrassed at his error. How could he confuse “skink” with “skunk?” Is Australian English so different from American English or British English? “I love Plum” is a reference to a military store on an island off the East Coast of the United States. Inside Edition 1 there is a young skunk reading from a recipe book and mixing ingredients for the skunk pong in a cauldron. The inscription around the cauldron refers to the official term for the skunk's smelly fluid, “mercaptan.” Scattered around the pot are two tins of baked beans (57 variety), salt and pepper, a bat wing, eyeballs, fish and more secret ingredients. The Infinity Version has old sneakers. Hallmarks include ©, star, HBC logo, ed.#, and Pc.
