The Stooges are owners of a small restaurant who are persuaded into searching for the Rootin-Tootin Diamond, which has been stolen by the Emir of Schmow. After breaking into the Schow's palace disguised as Santa Clauses, they recover the jewel.

Curly Howard filmed a brief scene as the restaurant's cook, but it was not used in the final print of the film. The dialogue for this lost scene was found in Jules White's copy of the script, and transcribed in The Three Stooges Journal # 106 (Summer 2003). A production still of Curly does exist, appearing on both the film's original one-sheet and lobby title card.

The clip of the Stooges approaching the palace in the horse-drawn sled is stock footage from WEE WEE MONSIEUR.

Remade as RUMPUS IN THE HAREM (1956), using stock footage.

Although the Stooges' sister, Birdie, has been dead more than a year, Joe will not let her memory fade. He studies reincarnation, thinking someday Birdie might return. While walking the streets, Joe hears Birdie's voice coming from a horse. The Stooges are delighted to find their reincarnated sister and take her home to celebrate. They spend the rest of the time hiding her from their landlord (Mr. Dinkelspiel). The key gag is that she makes uncles out of the Stooges.
