The third of Universal's three serials headlining the Dead End Kids and Little Tough Guys (preceded by "Junior G-Men" and "Sea Raiders") is the 55th of Universal's sound-era serials (followed "Gang Busters" and ahead of "Overland Mail") and is the last 12-chapter serial (despite some source that lists it as 13 chapters) released by Universal; "Overland Mail" had 15 episodes while the remaining 13 serials released by Universal Pictures (none of which were ever distributed to theatres by MCA/Universal which didn't exist in the years that Universal produced serials) were all 13 episodes. This one finds the gang, Billy "Ace" Holden (Billy Halop), "Bolts" Larson (Huntz Hall), "Stick" Munsey (Gabriel Dell) and "Greaseball" Plunkett (Bernard Punsly) working in an airplane/auto junk yard owned by Ace's father (Eddy Waller.) Their truck is stolen by members of a fifth column organization, the Order of the Black Dragonfly, but when government agent Don Ames (Richard Lane) returns the recovered truck, Ace, who distrusts law men, refuses to give Ames a description of the men who stole the truck. Ames decides to let Jerry Markham (Frank Albertson), young leader of the Junior G-Men, who knows both Ace and his brother Eddie (Gene Reynolds) through their mutual interest in airplanes and flying, try to gain Ace's cooperation. The Axis agents, Araka (Turhan Bey), Augar (John Bagni), Beal (John Bleifer), Monk (Noel Cravat) and Comora (Edward Forrest), report to the Japanese leader of the Black Dragonfly, The Baron (Lionel Atwill), at his farmhouse headquarters outside the city. In an attempt to track down the spies, Ace and his friends drive their truck near the farm and are spotted by the enemy agents.
