SPEED GIBSON OF THE INTERNATIONAL SECRET POLICE

 Speed Gibson is a fifteen-year-old orphan being raised by his Clint Barlow.    Speed is "a typical American boy:  interested in short wave radio, aviation and most of all -- The International Secret Police."  Clint and his buddy Barney Dunlap happen to work for -- what else? -- The International Secret Police.  A phone call from Headquarters interrupts Speed and Clint's vacation plans with a news case involving The Octopus, a mysterious international criminal,

Speed Gibson of the International Secret Police ran for almost three and a half years, from January 2, 1937 through May 25, 1940.  Speed, Clint, and Barney spend the first one hundred 15-minute episodes traveling the Orient in pursuit of The Octopus.  The remaining 78 episodes, titled "Speed Gibson and the Atlantian Syndicate," have our heroes continue pursuing The Octopus through Africa.  The Octopus is finally captured in the final episode.

The show was written by Virginia Cook and Eliot Lewis (perhaps, but who actually played Speed is not documented) starred Elliot Lewis, who we know played one of the Octopus' henchmen.  Howard McNear played Clint, while John Gibson was cast as his partner Barney.

With cliffhangers galore, the series was packed with excitement, action, thrills, and enjoyment -- enough to keep a youngster glued to the radio.

The link takes you to all 178 episodes.  Start with the first few and see if you will be hooked.
