When the King of a small but friendly nation is assassinated, Seaview is assigned to take the young Crown Prince back home to assume his throne. Neither Nelson (who gets turned out of his own cabin) nor Crane are used to handling children. Help arrives in the form of a mysterious flute-playing old man who befriends the boy after he is picked up at sea.

Analysis
Who is Old John? The writers wisely did not reveal exactly who - or what - old John was, but they dropped a few hints, not the least of which was the time setting of the show (note the original airdate). Viewers are meant to believe he is a supernatural being, and the choice to which they are guided is Santa Claus. The appearance is approximately right, and Nelson makes a point of noting they discovered him near Christmas Island. But we never know for certain who he is, or why he intervened in the young Prince's life.
