It all started badly for Sammy until he meets another turtle called Ray, who appears to be Irish and certainly knows how to have a good time. I saw no evidence of alcohol in this cartoon, but am fairly sure old Ray has a secret stash.

They travel the globe, but Sammy remains smitten by a female turtle and sets out to beat the odds by finding her in the open ocean.
