The short opens with Prof. J. O. Dunkfeather telling a reporter how he solved a mysterious case. The scene fades to the Stooges, three door-to-door peddlers selling their "Miracle Reducing Machine." After several rejections, they come across the home of Mr. Graves, a mad scientist who has invented a new death ray ("It'll kill millions!"). Graves mistakes the Stooges for his new caretakers, and leaves them to guard his home while he is in Washington. Three spies are out to steal Graves' plans, and disguise themselves in Halloween costumes to scare the Stooges away. Meanwhile, an unseen culprit roams the house, hurling pies at everyone.
