The cattle of Buck Larson’s (Billy Curtis) family is disappearing. When he looks into this, he catches thieves in the act, but without being able to identify Bat Haines (‘Little Billy’ Rhodes) and his gang. Meanwhile, Bat makes sure to stir up more trouble by telling Buck’s neighbor Tex (Billy Platt) that the Larsons are to blame for his disappearing cattle. But Bat doesn’t want to limit himself to cattle – he has more plans.
The Terror of Tiny Town is an exercise in exploitation. It uses its actors – all of them, save one, dwarfs – as a gimmick and mostly makes fun of them.
