The Stooges are out-of-work hoofers with a pet monkey act who get a chance at a show if they can make it to the train on time. In a rush to evade paying rent, the boys board the train. The monkey gets loose and wreaks havoc on the train, becoming a pain in the neck for Johnson, the show's manager, and the show's star, Paul Pain. The boys also cause a panic in the sleeping car looking for the monkey, and end up being thrown off the train.

The Stooges join the RAF hoping to fly, but wind up as motor pool mechanics instead. After they destroy a Colonel's car, they hide in a "sewer pipe" which is actually a blockbuster bomb being loaded onto a plane. After the bomb is dropped behind enemy lines, Moe and Curly disguise themselves as German soldiers, while Larry dresses as a seductive (?) senorita. Marshal Boring falls for Larry in drag, as the Stooges plot to steal the Germans' war plans.
