When a new law is made saying that anyone with chocolate will be fined and jailed, many people are angry - especially Smudger & Huntley. They do as much as they can to get their hands on chocolate, even if it will land them in trouble!
Smudger, Huntley & Mrs. B decide to make their own chocolate, and they create the Chocolate & Freedom Party. One night, the three decide not to go to the party, and bring all their friends to a dance. But somehow, they are caught, & Smudger and Mrs. B are taken away.
In the final breath-taking episode, Huntley must track down how the police found them, and Myrtle discovers she was being spied on and followed. In the short time they have left to survive, the remaining Chocolate & Freedom party members show a disc on TV saying to eat chocolate, and it returns to the fabulous world and everyone's happy again.
Bootleg was a miniseries based on a book of the same name by Alex Shearer. A new political party called the "Good for You" (abbreviated as GFY) which comes into power and bans chocolate. Two kids named Smudger Moore and Huntley Hunter want to get their chocolate back. They begin by selling bootleg chocolate, and go on to join an underground resistance organization.
