Dick Tracy Wiki

Johnny Gainer was the young son of Mickey and Mitzi Gainer. He had light curly hair.

When Mickey Gainer was arrested for involvement with Nails Wolley and Scardol, Mitzi Gainer took Johnny to the city to find Mickey. After a brief reunion, Mitzi left Mickey in jail, taking Johnny with her. Johnny realized that his belt was missing, and Mitzi returned to jail to find that Mickey had attempted to use the belt to hang himself in his cell. The belt broke and Mickey was relatively unharmed.

Pop Gainer agreed to help support Mitzi and Johnny while Mickey was in prison.


  • At the time of their encounter with Dick Tracy, Mickey stated that he and Mitzi had been married for two years. This would seem to indicate that Johnny was younger than two years old.
