Synopsis for “The Man in the Beehive!”
The assistant of a beekeeper who never bothers wearing protective clothing breaks into his house with a gun and attempts to rob the beekeeper. The beekeeper hypnotizes the assistant and asks him why it did not occur strange that he never had to wear protective clothing around the hives. The beekeeper states he is a mutant with a mind powerful enough to reduce size and he shrinks himself and the assistant and forces him into the hive at gunpoint. At first, the assistant is terrified that the beekeeper will direct the bees to kill him, but just as he is pinned by the insects and the fatal blow is to be struck, the beekeeper calls them off if the assistant will renounce criminal intent. The shaken man does so, the beekeeper returns them to normal size and claims they were always this size, and the assistant was merely under hypnosis. The assistant is unsure what to believe of the bizarre incident, when he spots something on the floor. He goes to pick it up, but drops it, and can no longer find it. He thought he had glimpsed a tiny gun at the tip of his finger.
