Synopsis
Using his acting experience, Vitamin masquerades as a woman to alert Tracy to T V Wiggles' threats against Sparkle. Tracy and Wiggles battle in an industrial coal chute, and Tracy is only saved when Mugg finds him. An injured Wiggles vainly seeks help from an old wrestling partner, then shoots her dead in the ring when she refuses. Still at large, he plans rigging a pistol to a TV microphone boom in order to assassinate Sparkle Plenty.
