Synopsis for "The Loan Shark's Hidden Hoard"
Two small time losers named Weepy and Rosy decide to make it rich by betting on horses, however in order to raise their capital, the two get a loan out from loan shark Sharkey Smiles. When they lose the bet and owe Smiles $2,000 plus 100% interest, the two attempt to steal a secret stash of money that they have spied from the apartment across the street. This attempt gets them involved with Batman and Robin who not only bust Weepy and Rosy, but Sharkey and his cronies as well. By the end, Weepy and Rosy realize (a little too late) that crime does not pay.
- No special notes.
- The $4,000 that Weepy & Rosy have to pay back would be the equivalent of just shy of $27,000 in the year 2009.
