Stray Cat Rock: Wild Jumbo (1970)

Hastily released the same year as the first film (just three months later) even though it's not an actual sequel, Wild Jumbo doesn't have much plot for the first hour, or so it seems. Somewhere around the 55-60 minute mark the real reason for the gang’s goofing around is revealed to both them and us. The last half hour doesn't change how it goes about things, but it does finally give the antics a purpose and in some ways validates part of what came before.
