Detective Comics #103
July 20, 1945
Here's a story I can connect with on some levels. We open with Dean Gray being forced to retire from Gotham University. The students though will miss the man as he gave them the best advice. It bothers him too, so he decides to open a shop where he dispenses his advice to all. The only thing is, he collects no fee.
And when the criminal Sam Slick hears about it, he plans to take advantage of Gray's advice. The next day, Bruce and Dick see Slick and his men, dressed in Egyptian garb, take a taxi. They quickly change and follow them to a movie studio where one of the assistants had gone to Gray for advice on clearly a bad check he cashed hoping it would be covered by gems he was planning to steal from the set.
Slick and his men take the gems and manage to get away by toppling a large prop onto Batman and Robin. They visit the assistant when he is not on set during the robbery. They find him unconscious, not being able to come out of it for some time, so that the two have to work without his help. They do find a note pointing to Gray's business.
It wasn't just the cartoons that forgot to put an emblem on.
