Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The April Fool's Day Crimes"
Alan Scott reads in the paper that the Fool broke jail, and is worried the bizarre villain will try some big scheme since it's April Fool's day. Not only that, the Little Lippy Gang has stolen a valuable painting and hid out in a hat repair shop the night before. That bit of news reminds Doiby he needs to go to that very hat repair shop to pick up his namesake. While he's leaving he suddenly finds the Little Lippy Gang sitting in his back seat. Doiby manages to fire the signal rocket to summon Green Lantern, but the gangsters escape after managing to tumble some wooden packing crates on top of the hero. The cabbie doesn't have long to recover from the excitement before he finds an even deadlier criminal sitting in the back of his cab: the Fool, who squirts vinegar in his eyes and makes off with Doiby's derby.
Soon after the Fool appears at a police precinct and steals the uniform cap off the desk sergeant. When pursuing him, Green Lantern runs right into the Lippy Gang trying to storm their way into the police station, and captures them. After seeing a claim ticket and realizing the desk sergeant had taken his cap to the same hat repair shop as Doiby, Green Lantern twigs to what's going on. Racing back to the hat repair store, he learns a silk top hat was stored next to the other purloined headwear, but the owner can't remember who it belonged to. Green Lantern figures its owner will be at the city opera house that night, and arrives in time to see the Fool stealing the top hat off its owner's head. Chasing him, the two heroes run into some opera scenery that looks like an open door and knock themselves out.
The Fool cuffs them both to the opera curtain, so that when the performance begins, they'll be rolled up and crushed. Triumphantly, the Fool declares stealing random hats wasn't his plan at all, and Green Lantern then bursts free and corrals his nemesis. He reveals his hunch that the Lippy Gang divided up the painting they'd stolen and hid it in the three hats, explaining why they and the Fool were in the same place, at the same time.
