Genre:
humor; adventure; fantasy-supernatural
Characters:
Little Archie Andrews; Mad Doctor Doom; Chester Punkett; Detective Parker; Millionaire Dibbledock; un-named clerk
Synopsis:
Mad Doctor Doom creates a machine that can control tornadoes, and uses it to destroy Riverdale's newly-completed Dibbledock Towers. He begins to blackmail wealthy businessmen, and uses the remote-controlled tornadoes to collect the ransom money. The police don't believe Little Archie's insistence that the "harmless nut" Mad Doctor Doom is behind this reign of terror. So it's once again up to that "meddlesome brat" to foil Doom's plans himself, using two things: the gold bars Doom has collected as ransom, and Chester's huge supply of "Icky Slicky" hair oil.

Indexer Notes

This was the last Little Archie story for many years by the title's creator, Bob Bolling. He was transferred to the "big" Archie titles after this, with Dexter Taylor handling the Little Archie title almost exclusively. Bolling drew (but didn't write) one Little Archie story in the early '70s, and finally returned to the title on a semi-regular basis starting in Little Archie # 142.

This was also the last appearance of Mad Doctor Doom in Little Archie for many years. He briefly became a recurring villain in Archie superhero stories. He and Chester reappeared in a Dexter Taylor story in Little Archie # 136, and Bolling returned to the characters in the mid-'80s.
