Angered over the death of his brother, Flattop, Blowtop rigs explosives to the wiring outside Tracy's house. He drugs Tracy's dog, Mugg.

Junior spots them from his bedroom window, but they trap him and put him inside a barrel. Tracy and Tess barely escape when the dynamite explodes and sets fire to their house. Tracy believes that Junior was caught in the explosion and flames.

Dick Tracy; Tess Tracy; Junior Tracy; Blowtop; Sam Catchem; Oliver the milkman; Mugg
Synopsis
Blowtop and his men seal Junior in a barrel and send it rolling slowly toward a 250-foot drop into an abandoned quarry. As they leave, they pass a patrol car. The patrolmen report the incident to Tracy. The barrel holding Junior is stopped by a turtle, and Tracy and Sam arrive at the quarry just in time to keep Junior from rolling off the edge of a cliff. Blowtop is having little luck fencing stolen cash and hides in a hotel. Vitamin Flintheart unknowingly enters the room, thinking it's his own. Believing Blowtop to be a rich investor, Vitamin talks him into producing a play.
