At the annual unclaimed freight auction, a mysterious woman asks Mrs. Stone to buy a wooden Chinese horse statue and gives her $100 cash. She explains she has to meet her husband out front and doesn't wait for Mrs. Stone to reply. After a lively bidding war, Mrs. Stone wins it for $50, but she has no idea where or to whom she should deliver the horse. Thus begins an interesting adventure for the Stone family, especially when Jeff proposes an International spy ring shipped the horse from China (a Communist country during the cold war). Later in the episode some of what Jeff suggested seems to be coming true, but also more, too. Tune in to see how the Stones react and how it turns out. Do the Stones end up behind bars for helping spies destroy the United States of America, is there a harmless explanation, or something in between?
