Trumbull, with his leg in a cast, stumbles into O'DAY AND SIMEON, PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS. Angel is a crack PI and judo master. Sam is a gorilla who draws comic books. Sam delivers his latest art to Stan Bragg, publisher at BRAINPIX PUBLICATION, INC. Angel protects Trumbull from kidnapping, but they're nabbed. Sam races across the city (nobody noticing he's a gorilla in a suit) to the zoo. Angel wiggles out of her bonds as Sam avoids death traps. The zookeeper nabbed Trumbull for his cast since the bandages contain "super rocket" plans - for a ride at Disneyland!
