A sinister-looking dentist named Dr. Travis seems to be extracting U. S. Government secrets from heretofore-reliable agents. Powered-up Stanley goes undercover to investigate and accidentally discovers that Travis's method consists of implanting a tiny radio transmitter in each agent's tooth. After Stanley's transmitter malfunctions, Travis and his compatriots abduct him in a desperate effort to avoid discovery. When Reed and Trent are themselves captured attempting to rescue Stanley, the trio's lone chance for escape consists of the hope that Reed can somehow slip Stanley a Power Pill while in full view of their captors.

The Talking Tooth
19 September 2019 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Dr. Travis (John Hoyt, "When Worlds Collide") is a dentist to government officials who have suddenly begun revealing important secrets. Mr. Reed suspects Dr. Hoyt is drugging them with a truth gas. He orders a "purple alert"- Stanley's Mr. Terrific, who is immune to truth gas. Dr. Travis implants a listening device in Stanley's tooth, unknown to him. However, it short-circuits and begins receiving radio transmissions at certain positions to Stanley's confusion. Mr. Reed and Mr. Trent discover the malfunctioning listening device and try to trace down Dr. Travis who has now captured Stanley, armed only with an aspirin.
