Journey to the Center of the Earth | 1967
When Professor Oliver Lindenbrook uncovers the long lost trail of Arnie Saccnuson -- an explorer who made a descent to the earth's center but died in the attempt -- he organizes an expedition to follow Arnie's trail. Accompanied by his niece Cindy, student Alec Hewit, a guide named Lars, and his pet duck Gertrude, Professor Lindenbrook begins a journey to the center of the earth.
Unknown to them, the evil Count Saccnuson, last living descendant of the once-noble family, follows them. Armed with a scheme to claim the earth's core for his own sinister purposes, he instructs his servant Torg to kill the Lindenbrook explorers. A dynamite explosion, set off by Torg, instead seals off the entrance, trapping the party in the earth's crust.
Stories relate their adventures as they struggle to find the secret of the way back to the earth's surface.
