Synopsis
Little Archie eats an alien delicacy that causes him to shrink until he is only an inch and a half tall. He is nearly eaten by his Grandmother's cat Bliggens and nearly drowned in her fish tank. To get back to the aliens and get the antidote, he climbs into a model plane and flies it toward their spaceship -- but can he and his plane survive an attack from a sharp-eyed hawk?

Indexer Notes

As the title implies, this is partly an homage to "The Incredible Shrinking Man."

The old sayings hanging on Grandmother Andrews' wall include "Don't step on my blue suede shoes."

Synopsis
Mad Doctor Doom's relative, the witch Mad Madam Doom, foretells that his next meeting with Little Archie will be in the tropics, and that his red-haired nemesis will be surfing. Sure enough, a tropical storm strands the "Pride of Walvis Bay" outside Isle of Palms just as Little Archie is accompanying his father there on a trip. Thanks to the Mad Madam's prediction, Mad Doctor Doom is ready with a scheme to kill Little Archie, involving his flat-headed servant Slurch, a pizza-shaped surfboard, and a ravenous giant barracuda named "Big Barry."

Indexer Notes

The design of Slurch is an obvious homage to Flattop from "Dick Tracy."
