The Adventures of Cliff Hanger is a book series by Livingston Dangerously. It's a segment that happens in most Between the Lions episodes.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Helicopter Chorus:

Cliff Hanger, hanging from a cliff!

And that's why he's called Cliff Hanger!

Plot[edit | edit source]

The segment begins with the book showing the name of the story, with the number each time showing out of chronological order. Then, a helicopter files with a chorus singing about Cliff Hanger, who's hanging from a cliff on a branch. He tries to get their attention, but not succeeded. Then, the branch breaks down, as to Cliff saying his catchphrase, "Can't hold on much longer!" After that, Cliff notices something happening or someone above or below him. As the narrator describes, Cliff reaches into his backpack and consults a Survival Manual, which is considered trusty. As he reads, the instructions always seem to relate to the surrounding events. Cliff does so, with items mostly from his backpack. Sometimes he gets off the cliff, while other times he falls off. But all those actions lead up to him falling off unexpectedly, or jumping up, back on the cliff. To Cliff's dismay, the branch breaks down again, so he says his catchphrase again, "Can't hold on much longer!", as the sun goes down.
