Dick Tracy Wiki
Advertisement

Ma and Pa Jetty were an elderly couple who owned a cabin resort near Doggie City, but the location was too remote to be profitable.

While Jerome Trohs was on the run after escaping Dick Tracy he came upon the struggling resort, which he offered to buy for $3,000. After the deal was concluded, Trohs stole the money back from the couple.

The Jettys discovered Trohs' trickery and confronted him. He drove them off at gunpoint. The Jettys then reported the swindle to the local Sheriff.

Notes[]

  • Despite the similarities of their names, this fictional couple is not based upon the comedy team Ma and Pa Kettle, who first appeared in 1945.
  • Ma addressed Pa by the name "Jasper".
