The Stooges are singing waiters whose silly antics inspire two doctors worried about little Betty Williams, whose father has been kidnapped. Dressed as three little girls, complete with balloons and giant lollipops, the Stooges visit the depressed girl in the hospital, but even they can't bring her around. The boys volunteer to find Mr. Williams... he's 5 ft. 10 inches tall in his stocking feet, has a tattoo on his shoulder, and yodels like this: Yodel-aydee-aydee-odalay-eeoo!

The yodelling song in this film is titled "I'm a Cowboy From the Western Plains," an original composition by Jules White; see The Three Stooges Journal # 91 (Fall 1999). It can also be heard in FROM NURSE TO WORSE (1940).

Video Pick of the Week Comic of the Day

Fired from another theatre gig, our stage comic Stooges take the advice of an irate theatre manager to kill themselves. Literally on the brink, they meet three lady hoofers, Hilda, Tilda, and Wilda on the same rooftop, and fast become smitten with them. Forgetting all about pulling a Brody, the pals and gals soon meet up with a man "afflicted with millions" who offers all six thousand bucks a week to star in his new stage show.
