Crime Crushers. Steve Carr (the handsome one) and “Ploopie” Carr (the short fat one) are the Crime Crushers, the “we-do-it boys,” a pair of young private investigators. They solve murders and rescue kidnap victims, and occasionally more interesting criminals, like Mister Duom [sic], who has been shielding his German niece from the fact that the US and Germany are at war. The Crime Crushers appear in stories with titles like "Ploopie Plays Cupid" and "The Case of the Million Dollar Bequest."
