Old Mike the Smuggler operated a fishing boat near Dick Tracy's city. He was a wiry man with a small moustache.

Ally of Stooge Viller[]

Old Mike the Smuggler used his fishing boat to smuggle contraband for several of the largest East Coast racketeers. His partnership with Stooge Viller resulted in both of them being arrested. When Stooge tried to break them out of jail, Stooge received a black eye and Mike was shot through his hand.

Mike persuaded Chief Brandon and Junior Tracy to return to his sailing vessel where he was handcuffed to the ship's wheel. On deck, Mike pushed a button that triggered the dynamite charges. Due to Junior's accidentally cutting off the charges below deck, the only part of the boat that was blown up was the section Mike was on. The Chief and Junior swam to safety.
