Cliff Hanger and the Helicopter Chorus.jpg

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

Lyrics[]

Helicopter Chorus:

Cliff Hanger, hanging from a cliff!

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

Plot[]

Each segment begins with the book showing the name and number of that particular adventure. The installments are not numbered chronologically. A chorus sings the theme song while flying past a cliff in a helicopter. Cliff Hanger, who is hanging from the cliff on a branch, tries unsuccessfully to get their attention. The branch begins to break as Cliff shouts his catchphrase "Can't hold on much longer!" After that, Cliff notices something or someone significant above or below him. As the narrator describes what's happening, Cliff reaches into his backpack and consults his trusty Survival Manual for instructions on how the surrounding events might help him. Cliff follows the instructions, usually using items from his backpack. Sometimes he gets off the cliff on his own, while other times he falls off. But inevitably, his actions lead up to him back on the cliff where he started. To Cliff's dismay, the branch begins to break again, and he says his catchphrase "Can't hold on much longer!" as the sun goes down.
