Batman tracks down Colonel Blimp to Washington, D.C., where he learns that the crook is planning to blackmail the country with explosive zeppelins for the amount of ten million dollars. Using the information they have gathered about Blimp's activities, Batman and Robin set out to stop the madman's plans.

When Robin manages to ruin the base of operations in the North Pole, Batman confronts Colonel Blimp face to face and after learning about the crook's tragic past, he knocks the man down and brings him to the authorities, ending his mad plans.
