Ted is a salesman for the Schmidt Costume Shop who likes to hang out at the fire station where Moe, Larry and Shemp, along with Freddie Sanborn work. Old man Schmidt is bankrupt and is taken over by his creditors, who send a young man named Carlson to manage his business. Carlson falls for Mr. Schmidt's niece Louise, but she resists him. Ted swings a deal with the Fire Department to supply costumes for the Firemen's Ball. Carlson wants to escort Louise to the ball, so Ted hatches a plan to take Louise, have himself and Carlson dress alike, and then switch places at the party.

Character actor and Spike Jones Orchestra comic Billy Barty plays 'Junior.'

The real-life wives of the Stooges do not appear in this film, though the Stooges address their on-screen 'wives' with the same names as their real wives. The rumor that their real-life wives appear in the film is probably because of the on location pictures with the Stooges, Mabel, Babe, and Helen that appear in several books. The rumor may have also been started from incorrect information in one of those books. A picture of the Stooges and their on-screen "wives" appears in the book The Three Stooges - The Triumphs and Tragedies of The Most Popular Comedy Team of All Time by Jeff Forrester and Tom Forrester.
