Synopsis for "Here Is the Sub-Mariner!"

A diver from the salvage ship S.S. Recovery is exploring a wreck to find a treasure when he finds a knife and brings down another diver. They search the wreckage and are attacked by Namor, the Sub-Mariner! He savagely attacks both men, stabbing one and crushing the diving helmet of the other. Namor then turns his attention to the ship, wrecking the propeller and running it aground. He heads back to his underwater home, where he is greeted by the "Holy One", who commends him on his attack against the humans. Namor brings the bodies of the two divers as trophies. His mother, Fen, congratulates him on beginning his war of revenge in such a decisive manner. Namor asks her why their people hate the white Earth-men so much.

She explains that in the year 1920, a research vessel called the Oracle had journeyed to Antarctica and was doing "experiments" with explosives that killed many of their fellow citizens. Since Fen looked most like a human, she was sent to find out more about what was going on. She fell in love with Commander Leonard McKenzie, and became pregnant by him. The sailors could not understand how she was able to swim in the freezing water. She learned their language and sent back messages to the undersea army that the white men were too strong for them, but they sent an army to fight them anyway. The white men's bombardment annihilated most of their race, and now, 20 years later, they are ready once again to press an attack against Earth-people, and Namor will begin this war.

Synopsis for "Kar Toon and his Copy Cat"

A boy (presumably named Kar Toon) wants to make an animation, so he draws a cat and starts recording with some kind of camera with two lightbulbs connected to it. An explosion occurs, the kid determines that it's because of a mouse who caused a short-circuit, but more shockingly, the drawing repeats what he says. He thinks that maybe the explosion affected his hearing, or even worse, he might be going nuts.

When he is about to get a solution for the mouse, the cat leaves the canvas and goes inside the camera, hunting the mouse successfully. The boy is amazed by this phenomenom and discovers that the cat can shrink or enlarge it's body, and also can repeat what he says (thereby, calling it Copy Cat). The boy then is excited to tell his uncle about the cat, but then he regrets that thought when he remembered that his uncle said to him that he will break his neck if he caught him fooling around.

He proposes to keep it a secret and sneaks out to get milk; the cat repeats the word "milk" and the kid proceeds to explain to the cat what milk is, drawing a cow in the canvas; the cat dissapears, it seems that it's scared of the drawing, so he erases it to draw a calf instead, but then the cat reappears with a cow, soon after doing the same with a calf. The cartoon ends with the three animals and the boy looking at the door as the boy states that his uncle just arrived.
