The Three Stooges starred in this 1965 TV series of 156 cartoons, originally packaged as 39 syndicated half-hour episodes, with each episode consisting of four 5 minute cartoons with live action wrap-around sequences. 41 live action wrap-arounds were filmed, and 40 were reused several times each with different cartoons; the first wrap-around, Soldiers, was used only once.

The first live action segment Soldiers was produced, directed and written by Norman Maurer as a plot companion to the 1st (pilot) cartoon, THAT LITTLE OLD BOMBMAKER. Animation producer Dick Brown outsourced animation of BOMBMAKER to Jay Ward Studios (ROCKY & BULLWINKLE), and is the only cartoon of the series to feature the voice talent of Paul Frees.

Once the series sold, Norman Maurer hired veteran Stooges director Edward Bernds to write and direct 40 new wraparounds, produced by Maurer's Three Stooges film production company, Normandy Productions. Dick Brown's Cambria Productions (CLUTCH CARGO, SPACE ANGEL) took on animation production. Heritage was the syndication distributor.

The Stooges' inheritance from their late Uncle Ambrose has been stolen by crooked investment broker Icabod Slipp. The boys go to Slipp's office to subpoena him, but he beats each of them up, rips up their subpoenas, and takes off on a train with the boys' inheritance. The Stooges trail him, but before finding him they accidentally let a lion loose on the train. The boys finally catch up to Slipp, and the chase is on.

Curly Howard, who had retired, makes a cameo in this film as a snoring passenger.
