The kidnapped explorers are minor characters in both F.A.B. and its visual counterpart The Abominable Snowman. They were attacked and held prisoner by the Legendary Abominable snowman but in reality it was The Hood in disguise and he had kidnapped them to mine for Uranium in his Ice Cave after he failed to steal some from the Meddings Uranium Factory.
Parker asks where they were in the cave when the Hood disguised as a local Sherpa traps him inside with them.
- It is unknown what happened to them at the end of the episode. It seems Parker possibly helped them to escape and they were all rescued by Thunderbird 2.
