Dick Tracy has the mob on the ropes. The leaders of the mob, including Prune Face, Flattop, Itchy, the Mole, the Brow and Mumbles, confer about what to do. Prune Face reveals he "already has a plan in motion." He's arranged to bring back to the U.S. Squinty Eyes, a killer deported some years earlier. Separately, Tracy and Pat Patton are informed by Interpol that Squinty Eyes is headed to the U.S. Tracy, noting the resemblance between Squinty Eyes and "the famous actor" Mr. Magoo, recruits the thespian. The police seize Squinty Eyes upon his arrival and Mr. Magoo takes his place. But Mr. Magoo gets more than he bargained for when he finds out that Prune Face wants Squinty Eyes to kill Tracy.
Did You Know?
This episode features the first time, in any medium, that many of the well-known Dick Tracy foes (e.g. Flattop, Mumbles) teamed up together. Dick Tracy's enemies tended to die at the end of their first appearance (even Flattop died) and rarely "undied", so very few of them had the chance to turn up later and join forces with other gangsters.
