Synopsis for Dr. Occult, the Ghost Detective: "Vampire Venom"

Police Detective Captain Vin Ellsworth calls in his friend Doctor Occult, the Ghost Detective, on a murder case that involves vampires. Several evenings later, after the most recent victim has been buried, Ellsworth and Occult hide in the cemetery’s bushes, watching his grave. Occult spots “the figure of the corpse and a bat-man!” Ignoring Occult’s warning, Ellsworth fires uselessly at the vampires with his pistol; they swoop to attack him. Occult whips out his mystic symbol and the vampires flee, each diving back into his own grave. Ellsworth and Occult observe which graves those are, dig them up, expose the vampires, and drive stakes through their chests, with Ellsworth complaining the whole time about how horrible it all is.

Synopsis for Pirate Gold: "Episode 16"

Jeff Roberts and Captain Dennis instigate a small-scale slave riot and make an escape from their new owner's armed servants by sneaking into his large house. Captain Dennis has brought along the whip with which he was being worked over, just before the melee began, and when they are discovered, he wields it in a fight with a swordsman. Jeff Roberts' throwing arm again decides the contest, as he knocks out the slave-owning merchant with a hurled metal incense holder. More swordsmen are on their way, so they flee the building via a second-story balcony and some tree limbs, to get over the courtyard wall. They drop on an unguarded side of the compound, and within an hour are back in the city, searching for the window where they last saw Jean. They find it; Jeff whistles; Jean appears at the barred window.

Synopsis for Marty McCann: "Pete Marko, Part 2"

They speed over to the Athletic Club, where Brad introduces Marty to his Dad, an amateur boxer, who introduces them to Boris, the Russian Lion, his boxer-in-training. Boris is a body builder and former wrestler; Marty has some zingers about both categories of fighters. Mr. Reynolds is inspired; he'll organize a boxer-versus-wrestler bout, featuring these two, and sell a ton of tickets!

When Pete Marko hears about his, he puts in a bid to promote the match; neither Mr. Reynolds nor McCann want anything to do with him so they turn it down. But Boris eagerly hires on with Marko, and promises to put McCann into the hospital!

Synopsis for Marty McCann: "Pete Marko, Part 3"

The night of the big match between Marty the Boxer and Boris the Wrestler comes around. The referee lays out the rules, and they begin. Marty hits him, then misses him, then is grabbed by Boris, and wrenched around severely for several minutes. It goes back and forth for quite a while, until Boris gets flustered and starts kicking. The Ref calls foul, and Boris twirls the Ref over his head and flings him out of the ring! The fight resumes, then the lights go out; somebody shoots Boris; a pistol is tossed into the ring to land right in front of Marty McCann; the lights come back on. With his boxing glove on, Marty stupidly picks up the gun, but it's obvious to all observers that he couldn't have fired it. Pete Marko and his gunman Blackie see from their ringside seats that their frame-up won't work, and depart, but are blocked from leaving by two burly cops, who frisk them both, and find the smoking handgun. Marko is arrested, but McCann asks the cops to release him in his custody, and despite his prior series of arrests they go along with that. Marko is very surprised by this development, but McCann seemingly just wants to help out.
