Jimmy Durante's "Schnarzan" movies are losing popularity to a competing studio's "Liondora" (George Givot) series. Hearing that the famous Baron Munchausen is coming to town, complete with lions captured in an African safari, Durante throws a huge Hollywood party in the Baron's honor, hoping to buy the lions for his films. Ted and the Stooges appear as photographers hoping to get photos and autographs of the celebrities attending the party, with a funny scene where three professors argue over the Stooges' proper place in the evolutionary ladder.

In spite of the rivalry between MGM and Disney, Walt Disney accepted Louis B. Mayer's request to supply the film's Technicolor animated sequence "The Chocolate Soldiers," with an introduction by Mickey Mouse voiced by Walt Disney.

Laurel and Hardy costar as the Baron's lion deliverymen; they engage in a hilarious tit-for-tat routine with Lupe Velez.

The Stooges' scene, as well as scenes with Durante and Laurel & Hardy, were reused in the MGM compilation feature MGM'S THE BIG PARADE OF COMEDY (1964).

Wedding plans for the Three Stooges are cut short when the father of their brides is wrongly jailed. Moe comes up with a plan for them to get into jail and bust the father out. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to get arrested, they end up walking through the front door of the county jail. To get the future father-in-law's job back as warden and expose the criminals, the Stooges go undercover as gentlemen at the gangster's dinner party to take pictures as evidence. The lengthy rumba dance provides plenty of time for Moe to shoot the photos, while Curly creates a diversion by exposing various undergarments.
