My Friend Mr. Nobody

EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Penny, exploring, finds a cave in a rocky area where a curious echo sounds as if it is trying to talk to her. The echo gradually forms intelligible words & penny goes there every day to play with her mysterious, invisible friend that Maureen believes is just a child’s imaginary playmate. One day Smith discovers that the pebbles she brings back from the cave are diamonds. Greedy to get more without anyone knowing what he’s up to, he tricks Don into blasting the cave wide open. Penny, guessing his purpose, flies back to the cave to protect her friend. She is knocked unconscious by the explosion & the Invisible Force, it’s home destroyed, its friend injured, erupts like a whirlwind, bent on the destruction of them all.
