Bobo's latest craze is firefighting, but he fails basic tests and is turned down. He buys a miniature fire engine and beats the real firefighters every time. The Sheriff could use help finding three missing convicts, but Bobo keeps racing off. He spots a fire in the woods - a campfire where the convicts hide out! He sprays them with foam and tonks them with a ladder as the Sheriff arrives. Now even the Sheriff helps polish the fire truck. "Who am I to question his methods? The point is he catches crooks!"
Again visiting John Rayburn, scientist, he recalls they shrank to mouse-size (last issue). Increase the formula and shrink to atomic size? They do, and plunk on an subatomic planet with two suns!

Rex dives atop the leader, Big Red, and sends him flapping. Rayburn is released just as the two return to normal size. "Someday we'll go back to the atom world, Rex!"
