Rudy Seton ("Notes" spelt backwards) was a bandleader and a friend of Dick Tracy. Seton was "arrested" by Tracy as part of a trap to catch the murderer of Fred Mason, who was discovered to be Junky Doolb. Seton hired the amnesiac singer Mary X to perform with his band.


  • Seton appears to have been modeled on Big Band "swing music" legend Benny Goodman.
