Cartoon Summary:

A formula developed at the Handlebar Chemical Factory enables several employees to speed up their metabolisms so they can function faster than any other human being. In fact, their metabolisms are so great that they take on the appearance of shadows. Mr. Handlbar, together with his staff begins by playing pranks on the citizens of Metropolitan City. This eventually escalates into a crime spree and Chief Fumblethumbs and 8th Man aren't able to stop them. Only when Arnold Goodfellow, the originator of the metabolism formula and a former employee at the factory comes forward, can 8th Man and the authorities learn the Shadow Bandits' weaknesses and defeat them.
