Synopsis:
Having created the "peculiar pacifier", Doc Gimmick sends Torgo out to lure a cop to his laboratory, and when the Policeman arrives, the doc uses his creation on him, whose gas makes anyone who smells it conciliatory or peaceable. When the doc proves that it works, he feels safe on using it anywhere and on anyone so that he can commit his robberies. Meanwhile, the artist on the famed Louie the Lout strip, is told by his editor to achieve a new epitome of loathsomeness for his comic character, which causes newspapers across the land to cancel the strip.
