Magazine advert (1993 UK ):

    My name is POND: JAMES POND... seacret agent.


    Dr.Maybe is back!
    We have learned from Washington and the Kremlin that he has taken over the
    central toy factory on the North Pole and has sabotaged an unknown number of toys disguised
    as penguins with tiny but lethal explosive charges. If they are not diffused within 48 hours they
    will be distributed throughout the globe and wreak havoc throughout Christmas.
    Your mission is tough but straightforward. Infiltrate the factory
    and free the penguins.
