Young Nachu and the other elephant tenders are tied up by the Japs after the Japs killed one of the elephants, and one Jap poked the bull elephant with a bayonet. Nachu escapes, and unchains all the elephants, riding the bull, who first kills the Jap who speared him, then leads a stampede on the Japs' headquarters huts where they'd lain in wait to ambush the allies. Alerted, the Americans arrive, shelling the remaining Japs' camp.

Indexer Notes

Gaylord Du Bois script credit per "Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott" (1985), page 78: "Gang Busters. 6p. For Popular Comics, Sept. 1944."

First in a series of Gang Buster's episodes in a row to deal with crimes against the controlled economy administered by the Federal Office of Price Administration, which rations the sale of gasoline, automobiles, food, et cetera, by means of issuing purchase coupons of various categories, certificates of permission to purchase, et cetera. Regulation gives rise to bootleggers, counterfeiters, car strippers, racketeers, an underground economy reaching it's anti-American tentacles to corrupt ordinary consumers: fathers, mothers, and and our nation's youth.
