He and a black cat raft onto an isolated tropical island inhabited by cannibals. When the fiery youngster fights back, he is made the official god of war by the tribe. Mickey rescues two men and a young girl who inadvertently end up on the menu of the hungry tribe. He is rescued by a U.S. Navy destroyer and reunited in California with his friend Captain McDavitt (Will R. Walling).
