The Mighty Boosh Cast

Excited at getting a slot on ‘Pie Face Showcase’, Howard and Vince take a boat to the U.S. (Howard being scared of flying); however, Vince’s decision to give the captain a mullet while he is asleep results in the two friends being forced to walk the plank, and they end up marooned on a desert island. With only rancid coconuts to eat, Howard and Vince soon find themselves in a coco-nightmare: Howard goes slowly mad, and, after falling out with Vince, makes his own friend, Milky Joe, out of a coconut and a tea-towel. In retaliation Vince creates a couple of coconut girlfriends for himself, Ruby and Precious Lilywhite. Howard manages to persuade Vince to let him date Precious, but she quickly takes over his life, and prohibits him from joining Vince and his newly-constructed coco-friends at their calypso party. Overwhelmed by the hen-pecking, Howard accidentally kills Precious; Vince helps him to bury the body, but their secret is discovered by the coco-police – a bamboo-car chase ensues, Vince and Howard crash their vehicle, are arrested and tried in a court by a coco-judge, and then sentenced to death…
