Synopsis for "Trigger Craig's Magic Carpet"

Trigger Craig is released after serving a six-year prison sentence, which resulted from his arrest by the Blackhawks. Craig sends his henchmen to buy an item at an auction. He's expecting a desk in which he hid stolen money, but instead they come back with a ratty Persian Carpet. It turns out to be a magic flying carpet, which Craig immediately puts to use in committing outlandish crimes, such as stealing an armored car, a ship, and a train that each carries loot, by ordering the flying carpet to raise and fly them away. When the Blackhawks interfere, Craig mounts a bulletproof dome and machine-guns on the carpet and goes after them. Blackhawk jumps from his plane onto the carpet, but can't stop it. Blackie rescues the team again by grabbing a thread in the carpet and unraveling it.
