The premise is simple: two {{Ancient Artifact}}s have been mysteriously stolen, and legend says that if the two are ever combined, then whoever holds them will have absolute power over life and death. For some reason, Professor Elemental is decided to be the best person to investigate. HilarityEnsues.

!!This work contains examples of:
* AnachronismStew: Music/ProfessorElemental is a SteamPunk QuintessentialBritishGentleman dressed in a typical AdventurerOutfit from VictorianBritain but living in the modern day. He's too old-fashioned for phones or cars, but perfectly fine with instant two-way communication through screens in the bottom of a high-tech teacup.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The frog and needle can be combined into one in the wrong hands.
* BackFromTheDead: What the ArtifactOfDoom is capable of. [[spoiler: Elemental uses it on both himself and his brother]].
* BondVillainStupidity: Simon insists on waiting until his pre-decided time to enact his EvilPlan, even when he knows the heroes are onto him.
* BornInTheWrongCentury: Professor Elemental would clearly be more at home in the 1800s.
* CainAndAbel: Simon and his brother.
* CardCarryingVillain: Simon.
--> '''Simon:''' For the love of all that's... evil!
* ContinuityNod: Several nods to Music/ProfessorElemental's songs, including his [[ASpotOfTea tea obsession]] from ''Cup of Brown Joy'' and his ape butler from ''Animal Magic'.
* DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent: Peter appears to be working for [[spoiler: both Elemental brothers]] simultaneously.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Elemental's butler, Geoffrey. [[InsistentTerminology Technically, he's a gorilla.]]
* EvilCounterpart: Simon has shades of this, given that he too is an eccentric professor who dresses in SteamPunk gear.
* {{Flynning}}: The climatic fight. With ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser bread]]''.
* LookBehindYou:
--> '''Elemental:''' Ooh, what's that?
--> '''Simon:''' I'm not falling for that one.
--> ''Elemental:''' No, really.
--> '''Simon:''' Oh, really? ''[He turns]''
--> ''[Elemental flees]''
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler: Simon is Professor Charles Elemental's brother.]]
* MistakenForMurderer: Simon believes that Professor Charles Elemental murdered [[spoiler: their father. Charles tries in vain to explain that their father was actually killed by one of his own evil experiments and Simon was never told the truth so that he wouldn't have to accept that his father was an evil scientist]].
* NonHumanSidekick: Geoffrey.
* NoodleImplements: Professor Elemental Senior was killed in a tragic accident involving, among other things, an ''otter''. [[spoiler: It turns out he was a MadScientist who tried to make weapons out of animals. The otter exploded while he was working on it.]]
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Clara Fitzsimmons, who works for the museum from which the frog statue was stolen and ends up joining the professor in his adventure.
* OutGambitted: The Professor manages to defeat Simon using a bizarre gambit involving a baguette and some pickpocketing.
* RetCon: Geoffrey is now a gorilla, rather than an orang-utang. And it appears that the professor is now an animal lover, which doesn't quite match up with his characterisation in the ''Animal Magic'' song.
* WeWillMeetAgain: Parodied by Simon.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway:
--> '''Elemental:''' You have telekinesis?
--> '''Simon:''' No, I just attract bread. Normally it's sodding annoying.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Simon [[spoiler: just wants to ressurect his dead father. Unfortunately, his father was an evil MadScientist who's better off dead.]]
