Synopsis for "The Train Robbery: Part 26"Edit

While Spike and Rusty are out watching the trail for any sign of Captain Jim or Bob, Johnny builds a signal fire in the back of the cave where they were being held. After the fire starts sending up a thin column of smoke, Johnny takes Jane and hides away in the forest, waiting.
Back at the shack, Jess managed to trick the rustlers, Fletch and Scrub, into thinking he was still in the shack. Once they left, he took the .45 they had been cleaning as a means to defend himself. Finding his horse tied to a tree nearby, Jess rode off after the rustlers, until their trail suddenly stopped dead. Almost as if they had sprouted wings and flew off, the hoof prints came to an end in the middle of a clearing.


Meanwhile, Captain Jim and Bob follow the trail of Jane and Johnny's captors, when they see the smoke from a small fire up on the cliff ahead. Rusty, however, has also seen the smoke by this time. Grabbing Spike, the two of them go off looking for the kids before Jim and Bob found them...

Synopsis for "Pearl of the Bleeding Heart: Part 10"Edit

The captain of the Mary Lou had stolen the Pearl from Job, whom he then murdered, and flees to Cuba. Sammy, a contact there, has expressed interest in buying the pearl off of him for a high price. A bit of negotiating, and then the captain walks out of Sammy's place with his pockets full of cash. When the captain is out of sight, Sammy calls one of his renegades over and whispers something into his ear. As the captain is enjoying his walk back to the port, the renegade starts trailing him. As soon as he has an opening, the man buries a knife into the captain's back, killing him, and takes the money he was carrying back to Sammy.
Meanwhile, Nadir has been posing as a roughneck in order to gain information about the captains contact. When an especially inebriated man reveals what he's looking for, Nadir pats for the man's drink and races off to Sammy's place. On the way, he comes across the captain's corpse lying on the ground. The Pearl was gone, and it seems as though he had also had his pockets emptied. The exchange must have already been made, Nadir concludes.


Arriving at Sammy's building, Nadir silently climbs to the window of his second floor office and peers inside. He could be seen sitting in a chair, his back to Nadir. With a hard tackle, Nadir knocks into him from behind, making him drop the pearl and knocking him out. Nadir notices that Sammy also had the money that was supposed to go to the captain, deducing that he murdered the captain and took back his money shortly after getting the pearl. Then, a voice from behind, telling Nadir to raise his hands in the air. Instead, he knocks over the desk lamp and ducks for cover. The renegade opens fire.

Synopsis for "The Pirate Ship: Part 1"Edit

On a boring day, Rusty and his friends decide to build a raft and set sail for the sea. Hopefully meeting some pirates in the process, and joining them in their adventures. After a day of miserable sailing through some rain, a pirate ship does, in fact, show up on the horizon. The watchman up in the crow's nest spots the boys and the crew sends a small schooner out to pick them up. When they are aboard, the captain looks them over and decides to put them to work.
Rusty, Specs, and Tubby are quickly starting to think that being a pirate isn't all it's cracked up to be. When they are called into the captain's quarters, the fear it means he's going to make them walk the plank. But instead, as it turns out, he reveals to them that though they are on a real pirate ship, nobody on it is a real pirate. The ship has been put up as an exhibition, where people pay money to see what the life of a pirate was like. The ship had just finished it's time in New York, and now it was off to England. Rusty tells his friends that they may as well stay awhile, to find out what pirates were like...


Far off, in London, a sinister man tells his men that they will put their plan into motion very soon....

Synopsis for "Smoke-Eater's Dessert"Edit

This is a written short story about a fireman. Dick Mulvey loved his job, and the contant fast-paced firefighting adventures that came with it. On one particular call, he and his team were sent to a warehouse that had turned into a fiery inferno. After a quick look, the team decided the building couldn't be saved and to let the fire burn itself out. While they were soaking the surrounding buildings so that the fire didn't spread, Dick spots something on the warehouse roof. In an instant, he runs inside, while his team-mates look on in horror. Dick fights his way up to the roof of the building, while the fire rages all around him.


Several minutes anxiously pass with the team watching for their comrade. Then they burst into cheers when Dick's form appears on the roof with a man slung over his shoulder. The other firemen quickly bring out the ladder and set it against the building. When Dick makes it to the ground, he hands the man over to the paramedics while everyone else is congratulating him for saving the man's life. But then he reveals that he only came across the man on his way to the roof. Confused, the firefighters captain asks him then what did he see up there that got him going? With a smile, Dick reaches into his coat and pulls out a ball of fur. It was a kitten!

Synopsis for "Captain Desmo Flies Again!"Edit

Some years after the Great War, in which he had felled 10 enemy planes, Captain Desmo was flying across a Mongolian wasteland. He spots a column of smoke billowing up off in the distance, so he decides to investigate. Down below, he sees a pack of Mongolians attempting to sieze an Emco Oil Company outpost with machine-gun fire. Inside, the company's employees stand their ground, and return fire with what little ammunition they have.
Unable to resist helping the outpost in their time of need, Desmo swoops his plane down over the attacking Mongolians and fires upon them until they withdraw. After the battle is done, he lands next to the oupost where they explain to him that the Mongolians were working for a ruthless man named Genghis Ahkim. He was attempting to take a share of the profits from the company, but when they defied him, he sent his men out to take it by force. Desmo mentions that he has met Ahkim once before, and decides to pay the man another visit.


At an inn beyond the wasteland, Ahkim waited in anticipation for his "tax collectors" to return with his money. But a messenger comes instead and tells him that his men have been routed by a mysterious plane. Just as Ahkim is thinking over what to do, Desmo appears in the doorway. A fight breaks out. For awhile it seems that Desmo will have the upper hand, but then a clever brigand sneaks behind him, and strikes him in the back of the head with a club. He is out cold, and Ahkim gets a vicious idea on what to do with his enemy...

They bring him back to headquarters and lock him up in a cell.
As Click waits, the enemy decides that he knows too much and must therefore be executed. A guard walks into Click's cell to see him lying on the ground. Thinking him ill, the man moves closer to inspect him when Click kicks his legs out and lays the guard flat on his face. He makes an rushes down the corridor, fighting off soldiers. Unfortunately, his escape is cut short when he is overwhelmed by a pack of guards. Minutes later , he is dragged out to the firing range, where an execution squad awaits.

Synopsis for "Murder at the Thousand Bleeding Dragons: Part 8"Edit

During dinner at their friend Lee-Fun's house, Sergeant Carey and Sleepy are attacked by Sin Fu's gang. The trio make their escape down the mountain, Lee-Fun suggesting they head towards the enemy's vessel. The first is still carrying many armed men, but the second further down only has one man aboard. Carey easily dispatches him and helps Sleepy and Lee aboard.
Before Carey and Lee can get very far in the water, Sleepy shouts a warning of the other ship coming after them. It was coming straight towards them, outmatching their own boats speed. Carey and Sleepy grab their guns and, once the crew is within range, open fire on the gang. When the enemy starts tossing ropes onto the other ship in order to board it, Sleepy soon gets behind the mounted machine gun. This sight gives the gang enough incentive to beat a hasty retreat.


With a laugh, Sleepy and Carey explain to Lee-Fun that the gun was empty and rusted over. As they jump overboard and swim back to shore, Lee has one last parting action for Sin Fu's men. With a torch, he lights the ships ablaze, saying it was a gift, courtesy of the Shanghai Police Department.

Synopsis for "Robin Hood: Episode 4"Edit

The band of merry men is growing in number. But there still hasn't been a decision in who will be leader. All the men agree that the best archer should lead, so Robin Hood sets up a mark for the menn to hit. A wreath of leaves and flowers, and whoever lands an arrow in the middle without hitting any part of it assumes command. Robin hangs the garland at a far-off distance, much to the chagrin of the others, who believe that making a clean shot at that distance was impossible! But despite themselves, the merry men each attempt to shoot their arrows through the target. Each one failing. Until finally, it's Robin's turn. Shock and amazement permeate the crowd as his arrow cleanly glides through the garland's center. It's clear. Robin Hood will be the leader.


As days pass in Sherwood Forest, a thought keeps clicking in Robin's mind. If they are truly to beat the king's foresters, they must have more men. On one similar day, he comes to a river, with a narrow bridge crossing the middle. As he starts crossing, a large man steps on from the other side. Niether the large man, nor Robin are willing to step aside, so Robin is challenged to a duel between them. After cutting a piece of bamboo in order to match his opponents weapon, Robin fights valiantly. But in the end, he loses to the large man. Admiring his skill, Robin Hood invites the man to join his crew. The man happily agrees, and introduces himself as John Little, or "Little John".
