Rocky and Bullwinkle #2

Rocky and Bullwinkle's attempts to help a washed-up magician get back on his feet only make Boris and Natasha aware of the man who just happens to have the necessary skills to help the Pottsylvanian spies steal a secret new bomb.

The two-part story, complete with a cliffhanger of the moose being sent to his death in a tank filled with man-eating (but not moose-eating) piranha, is fun (even if it does rely on an unnecessary deus ex machina with the intervention of the Moon Men).

The intermission delivers another adventure of Dudley Do-Right who struggles with Inspector Fenwick's orders to get his man. Snidley Whiplash's maneuvering to cause the mountie's arrest of an insurance salesman (whose personality and salemanship drives both prisoners and mounties crazy) gives the villain temporary free run of the town but also comes back to bite the villain when he's later forced to share a cell with the salesman. Worth a look.
