J. J. LEGGETT, SECRET AGENT

A kid's slicker instead of a trench coat, a piece of shag rug where a beard should be--J. J. Leggett doesn't look much like a secret agent, but then ""a creepy kid was as good a disguise as any."" It's a little disconcerting when speaking into his walkie-talkie causes his mother's electronically controlled garage door to slam, and later it has the same effect on the newly-installed vault at the local bank. But then J. J. spots a suspicious character ""surveilling the premises."" ""He wasn't wearing a trench coat. He wasn't even wearing a slicker. I know he wasn't a secret agent""--but J. J. strings him along, and before you know it SLAM! J. J. and his walkie-talkie have trapped a thief in the new bank vault. An old game but a popular one, and J. J. contributes his share of funny lines.
