The man known as The Brain was an eccentric gang leader who played an ocarina and wore a hat whose top was made to resemble a human brain.

While trying to escape from Dick Tracy and Sam Catchem, Brain and his gang drove into a train tunnel and were killed when they crashed into a freight train (January 26, 1975).

Notes Edit

  • A character called "The Brain" had previously appeared in a 5-episode arc of the 1950s live action "Dick Tracy" TV series starring Ralph Byrd. The Brain was played by Lyle Talbot (who had also played Big Frost and 88 Keyes). That character predates the Brain from the comic strip by nearly 25 years, and there does not seem to be any connection between the two.
