Wedding plans for the Three Stooges are cut short when the father of their fiancees is wrongly jailed, and the inmantes take over the prison where he was the warden. Moe comes up with a plan for them to get into jail and bust the father out. After some unsuccessful attempts to get arrested, they wind up walking through the front door of the county jail. To expose the criminal operation, the Stooges go undercover as gentlemen at the inmates' party to take pictures as evidence.

The 1-sheet and lobby cards give cast credit to Barbara Pepper. She does not appear in the short. Due to her name's prominence on publicity materials, it is currently guessed that she was intended to play one of the Stooges' girlfriends, but was recast. Existing production photos, and still frame viewings of the film, do not reveal her as one of the extras on the party dancefloor. Jules White's files at the Herrick Library do not explain the discrepancy. A mystery that's still looking for an answer.

A 2004 interview with costar Julie Gibson appeared in The Three Stooges Journal # 110 (Summer 2004).

The rhumba number in this film is titled "Brazilian Cotillion;" see The Three Stooges Journal # 92 (Winter 1999).

The Stooges are electricians who are fired after messing up a job. They decide to go away for a vacation and check into Doc Mallard's Rest Home and Clinic. It's not long before they discover that Doc Mallard is a quack, and his clinic is designed to gyp patients of their money. The boys try to escape, and Mallard's cure for that is to stop them by any means necessary.
