Synopsis
Tracy is marooned on a desolate Atlantic island by Miss Egghead. He finds Superintendent Whitewall, a lawman already marooned there. They manage to survive until an Army space capsule lands on the island and they are rescued. Meanwhile, Señor Wunbrow shadows Miss Egghead, who goes to the home of Chicory in Cuba, looking for a hideout. When a hurricane strikes, Chicory leaves Miss Egghead penned up in his house while he and his henchmen try to escape with his gamecocks in the Dropper's plane. They crash and burn. Wunbrow tries to ride out the storm with Miss Egghead handcuffed to a heavy door.
